The celebration of the National Day of the United Arab Emirates is not limited to shedding light on the country’s development process and the achievements made by the country over the past fifty years. Rather, this precious national occasion reflects the positive outlook and future aspirations that the UAE seeks to achieve during the next fifty years.
Anyone outside the country may view the slogan “No to the Impossible” as merely a national slogan, but what they cannot realize is that the idea of making the impossible possible is rooted in the values and principles that underpin the state. Innovation is not the goal, but rather a daily slogan that includes all vital aspects and sectors in the country, including the public and private sectors.
There is no doubt that the astonishing development witnessed by the health care sector in the United Arab Emirates is a realistic example of the possibility of applying this slogan. A world-class comprehensive health facility based on the best infrastructure, the latest innovative technologies, talents, and international partners.
In the year 2021, we witnessed the extent to which the UAE succeeded in achieving this mission, as it provided a model to be followed globally in the health care sector, in addition to the competencies that oversaw the functioning of the work system and the foundations that enabled it to overcome the challenges imposed by the global “Covid-19” pandemic, reaching It ranks first in the world in managing the health crisis.
As we look towards the next 50 years, the government has identified the healthcare sector as an ongoing investment priority. But investment in innovation, technology, talent, and new sciences will not only come from government spending. The UAE has become a leading global destination for private healthcare investment, attracting some of the most innovative and reliable healthcare brands globally. These companies realize that government support, regulatory environment, infrastructure, and ability to attract the best talent make the UAE a prime destination not only for the health needs of the people of the UAE, but also for individuals who come to the country for specialized treatments in the region.
For all these reasons, Aviv Clinics chose the United Arab Emirates as the first mind-body improvement clinic in the Middle East and North Africa region. and brain performance in the region.
Inspired by the UAE’s vision of achieving the impossible, the renewal of brain cells was impossible only ten years ago, but today it has become a proven scientific fact.
Improving brain and body performance according to the Aviv Clinics protocol includes a unique hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which triggers the body’s self-renewal mechanism. Providing oxygen in a supportive environment helps generate new stem cells and blood vessels that have deteriorated or collapsed over time with age.
When a person is young, the body is constantly generating new stem cells that help grow and allow the body to recover from injuries. But at a certain age, when a person reaches the age of about 50, not only do stem cells slow down, we experience a decline in our cognitive and physical functions.
This is what causes the mental and physical slowdown that comes with age, and unfortunately it cannot be reversed, because we do not produce enough stem cells to repair and regenerate damaged areas. This is why a person does not feel as well as they did just a few years ago. This type of deterioration in brain function can also be caused by brain trauma, or as a result of medical problems such as stroke, dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It all comes as a result of damaged brain tissue.
But advances in aging research through the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy have now given us the ability to effectively reverse some aspects of the aging process by triggering the body’s self-generating mechanism and generating new stem cells. This is achieved through a unique hyperbaric oxygen therapy protocol in modern, specialized hyperbaric chambers. Through the images before and after the MRI, it can actually be seen how the brain is getting more blood flow and more activity that correlates with improved brain function.
Patients who undergo this treatment tell stories of the life-changing effects they have on mental and physical performance. They become more alert and active. CEOs and CEOs see a marked difference in their professional skills such as focus, ease of decision-making, and memory. For some who have experienced loss of physical abilities due to stroke or brain trauma, we have seen it result in the ability to walk or talk again.
This level of brain regeneration is a true example of making the impossible possible for the many people who are now seeing life after 50 from a whole new perspective, which is especially important in a region that is set to see an aging population over the next decade. . The optimism they have about the possibilities available in the future is very similar to the optimism that surrounds us all about what the next 50 years will bring to the UAE.
Aviv Clinics chose to invest in establishing the first clinic in the Middle East and North Africa for brain health and performance in the UAE for the same reason that many of the world’s largest healthcare companies have invested in it. We share this optimism for the future thanks to the vision and commitment of the country’s leadership to ensure that members of society in the UAE receive the best care available on a global level.
And when a person is guaranteed a healthy brain, he can start his life again after the age of 50, and we can all witness and enjoy the amazing future potential of the United Arab Emirates.
