It isn’t uncommon for the older generation to talk about how hard the aging process is; in fact, most of us have probably seen older people who suffer from different ailments and thought ‘Wow. I sure hope that doesn’t happen to me when I’m old.’ But, the reality is, our bodies change as we get older, and, those changes aren’t always pleasant. However, Dr. Dov Rand is on a mission to help the aging generation fight those ailments so that they can continue to live their best life.
After completing his medical training and working at New York’s prestigious Albert Einstein Medical Center, Dr. Rand set out on his own and founded the Healthy Aging Medical Center. By using rehabilitative, physical, hormonal, and homeopathic medicine Dr. Dov Rand is able to help the aging generation achieve their optimal health. Some of the main ailments that Dr. Rand can help include, depression, insomnia, hot flashes, mood disorders, fatigue, menopause, and, among others, erectile dysfunction. While Dr. Rand implements many different scientifically proven methods to help his patients, perhaps the three most commonly used treatment methods are hormone therapy, the HCG diet, and lifestyle changes.
Every person’s body is made up of a unique set of hormones, which, unfortunately can often become unbalanced through the aging process. However, the use of bioidentical hormone therapies helps the body maintain its hormonal balance which is critical for overall health.
The HCG diet is a weight loss diet that helps prevent degenerative muscle deterioration; additionally, the diet helps patients relearn proper eating habits, increases energy, resets metabolism, improves insulin levels, and improves overall health. Simply put, the HCG diet is a low-calorie diet. However, Dr. Dov Rand prescribes pharmaceutical grade HCG, a hormone found in pregnant women, for patients to take while on the diet. Taking HCG is what decreases the loss of muscle that often happens with low-calorie diets.
Lifestyle changes is also huge when treating aging patients. As individuals age, they become more stagnant, which decreases health. It is a well-known fact, however, that movement of the body is important for mental, cardiovascular, and physical health; this is precisely why Dr. Rand implements lifestyle changes that include the implementation of yoga, healthy eating, strength training, and/or cardiovascular training.
While some might think these processes seem extreme or unnecessary, overall patients have been very happy with the results they have seen by taking, listening to, and following Dr. Dov Rand’s advice.
