The need to provide comprehensive and holistic medical care has been called for; however, it is not easy to provide integrated health care within a hospital system that has been compartmentalized into specialties. Medical stuff working in hospitals tend to think in terms of diseases and conditions in his/her specialty and has little latitude to consider other issues. How is the patient spending his/her time? What kind of social interaction and support does the patient have from friends and family? What does the patient eat? What are the important issues this patient faces in daily life? What is their wisdom regarding their purpose of life? These are not questions asked by medical staff in hospitals. In field medicine, clinicians with local health care stuff enter into the communities where their patients live, and we try to prevent and intervene diseases based on the ecological and cultural view-points on sites. The concept of Field Medicine was shipped my Himalayan Mountaineering. In this discussion, inspired by my Himalayan mountaineering, obtained through Field Medicine in the world, discussing the overall knowledge about human aging.
