As we get older, many of us suffer from a range of aches, pains, and a litany of vague symptoms: Sleeplessness, weight gain, low muscle tone, exhaustion, lack of libido, and a general feeling of not being “ourselves.” At least, not what we used to be. We are told to accept that we are aging and be content that things aren’t worse. At the same time, many of us don’t want to depend on a drug to make us better, nor to experience drug-related side effects to add to our list of ailments.
This is why many patients in New Jersey have turned to Dr. Dov Rand, DM, and his integrated approach to overall wellness. Dr. Rand is the founding member of Healthy Aging Medical Centers in West Orange, New Jersey. The clinic offers a range of services to meet the needs of patients suffering with everything from menopause to terminal illnesses (Askreporter).
Dr. Dov Rand believes that much of what ails us has to do with a natural increase in bad hormones, such as cortisol and insulin, and a decline in good hormones, like estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, HGH (human growth hormone) and DHEA (a natural steroid). This is why Dr. Rand specializes in bio-identical hormone therapy.
Bio-identical hormones are identical with those hormones found in our bodies on a molecular level. They are believed by many researchers to be more readily accepted by our bodies, and they even show up in blood tests as indistinguishable from the natural hormones that are present, making dosages easier to regulate. Many patients who have received this natural hormone replacement therapy have enjoyed much of the health benefits and vitality they had in their younger years. Dr. Rand has also helped patients through the HCG diet, which employs a natural hormone to drop pounds quickly and safely without losing muscle mass.
What Dr. Rand knows is that the fountain of youth is best found not in a synthetic drug, but by activating natural processes the body to make his patients feel better and more youthful. He works compassionately with patients to provide nutritional education, supplemental nutrition therapy, and cardiovascular and strength-training protocols in order to improve heart health, increase lean body mass, promote weight loss when needed, and improve energy. Many patients at Healthy Aging Medical Center have experienced a drastic improvement in overall health and relief of symptoms by dropping excess weight.
