Aging causes emotional and physical issues. Depression and anxiety are common in older people. Insomnia, hot flashes and loss of libido are some of the physical consequences of aging.
Albert Einstein School of Medicine graduate and Bioidentical Hormone Specialist Dr. Dov Rand’s practice the Healthy Aging Medical Center is devoted to countering the effects of aging. Dr. Rand’s counter aging therapy addresses both the physical and psychological needs of the patient.
Treatment begins with a blood test. The test will reveal which hormones and vitamins a patient is lacking. The replacement therapy can be conducted intravenously.
Hormones affect the body positively and negatively. The level of positive hormones decreases as we age. The positive hormone chorionic gonadotropin ensures that the fetus is properly nourished during pregnancy. In older people, CG helps with weight management. That is why Dr. Rand utilizes the HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) diet.
Dr. Rand uses bioidentical hormones rather than synthetic hormones in his replacement therapy. The potential side effects of synthetic hormones, cancer, heart disease, and hypertension can be deadly. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and their possible side effects are non-life threatening. With hormones in proper balance, the risk of cancer and heart disease decreases and energy levels rise.
Low-calorie diets are often counter-productive because the dieter is constantly hungry. The HCG diet is low calorie, but the chorionic gonadotropin keeps the patient from feeling hungry. The HCG diet yields result faster than other diet programs.
Exercise and education are part of the HCG regimen. The benefits of exercise are self-explanatory. Dr. Dov Rand has discovered once a patient is educated verbally and with printed material that explains how the replacement therapies, low-calorie diet, and exercise work in unison to achieve weight loss they are more likely to stick with the program.
While weight loss and exercise mitigate many of the effects of aging they may not be enough by themselves. Dr. Dov Rand’s West Orange, NJ based practice also offers pain management treatments. Dr. Rand is a certified acupuncturist. He is further certified in the administration of steroids, cortisol injections, and nerve blocks.
