We all dream of eternal health, vitality and youthful good looks, but the ageing process is an unavoidable fact of life, which is why Switzerland’s Grand Resort Bad Ragaz has invented the Ragazer Ageing Score. With health and wellness at its core, the score is a unique programme through which your biological age – and the targeted steps to be taken towards slowing the ageing process – can be determined.
Developed by Dr Clemens Sieber, a Swiss Medical Association doctor specialising in internal medicine, and the resort‘s nutritional scientist Christof Mannhart, the Ragazer Ageing Score can be used as an accurate indicator of the stage of aging. Using comprehensive diagnostics, the programme comes up with an accurate biological age, taking into account factors such as musculoskeletal systems, metabolism rates, diet and exercise.
While youth is an attractive trait that we all desire, understandably, life gets in the way for all of us. With daily temptations and endless periods of stress, both at work and in our personal lives, ageing can be accelerated. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance, getting enough exercise and sleep, eating a balanced diet and avoiding addictive substances such as caffeine, sugar, nicotine and alcohol are all ways in which we can improve our health and stop giving the ageing process a helping hand.
The Ragazer Ageing Score programme spans a four-night stay at Bad Ragaz, and begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr Sieber where lifestyle, nutrition and exercise are all discussed. Following this, an organ check-up involving blood tests is completed, and a range of medical and physiotherapy treatments are carried out in order to determine the score. Once the score is established, damaged internal systems can be pinpointed and restorative measures can be taken. This can be anything from a simple lifestyle change to prescription medicine. Focusing on regaining a renewed lifestyle balance, the programme aims to manage underlying issues such as sleep disorders and stress through specialist advice and solutions. Personalised support is offered throughout the programme and patients will receive their own health file so they can maintain the programme.
Famous for its ground-breaking initiatives such as the Ragazer Ageing Score, Grand Resort Bad Ragaz consistently invests in maintaining its title as the leading centre in international well-being and medical health. Awarded Condé Nast Traveller’s, “Best Medi Spa Award”, the resort continues to strive for such success.
