Johanan Rand is at the top of his game. He received his medical training at the Albert Einstein Medical Center in New York where he developed the skills and experience he needed to help his patients fight aging. Johanan Rand co-founded the Healthy Aging Medical Centers, and this organization provides health and wellness solutions for people who are suffering from the many age-related disturbances.
Age-Related Conditions Treated by Johanan Rand
The age-related conditions that Johanan Rand’s patients complain of include the following:
- Night Sweats
- Low libido
- Hot flashes
To treat these issues, Johanan Rand and his team use regenerative medicine that incorporates an integrated approach for each individual patient. The services that patients receive at the Healthy Aging Medical Centers include anti-aging therapies, regenerative medical treatments, and programs for weight loss.
Johanan Rand has discovered the difference between young people and older people, and the answer is in our hormones. Dr. Rand learned that everyone has both good hormones and bad hormones, but aging causes human beings to lose some of the good hormones. These good hormones include DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid and human growth hormone. Also as we age, our levels of the bad hormones begin to increase. This means that older individuals have greater amounts of cortisol and insulin in their bloodstreams than younger people. Insulin is the hormone that causes the body to store fat, so it is contributing to the reason that older people begin to gain weight in their later years.
The Answers to This Problem
Others have discovered these truths as well, but their answer to this problem is to prescribe synthetic hormones for their patients, and this is the wrong answer. These synthetic hormones are actually known to be dangerous to human beings. Johanan Rand takes a different approach and only administers “bioidentical hormones” to his patients so that the good hormones are present in the upper quartile of the range. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones that exist within the body, so they are known to be safe. With a newly restored balance between the good and the bad hormones, Johanan Rand’s patients experience several benefits, including an increased amount of energy, an increased amount of stamina, fewer diagnoses of cancer, lower cholesterol levels and fewer incidences of heart disease. His patients also report the fact that they do not suffer from depression as often as they did before the treatment.
The HCG Diet
Johanan Rand introduced his HCG diet to his patients, and they are successfully losing weight with it. The program takes advantage of a hormone that is released in a woman after she becomes pregnant. This hormone ensures that the fetus receives the nourishment it needs to grow. Scientists also learned that this same hormone prevents degenerative muscle deterioration when people are in the process of losing weight, and it is available in Johanan Rand’s HCG diet supplements.
Johanan Rand’s patients have such an easy time on his HCG diet because they are not experiencing hunger while they follow it. That is because the hormone described above works to suppress the appetite. It should be noted that the diet is a low-calorie diet, so the fact that people are not hungry is a formidable accomplishment.
The HCG diet has given patients who have completed the program several positive benefits. For example, the diet really causes them to lose weight quickly. After this occurs, they find that they have learned better eating habits and reset their metabolisms. They also feel better and have an increased amount of energy. Most importantly, their insulin levels went down, and they have a healthy dose of self-confidence. The HCG diet is also responsible for ending the cycle of “yo-yo dieting” because after people successfully complete their programs, they keep their new bodies for life. That’s because after they have lost the weight they want to lose, they will follow the long-term plan that comes with the diet. This diet is extremely easy for patients to follow, so their results will be permanent.
Treatment for Erectile Dysfunction
We mentioned above that testosterone is one of the good hormones that decreases as men age. The result is often erectile dysfunction, but it also has several other consequences. While these good hormone levels are low, a man is more susceptible to disease and cannot recover from stress as easily. Because cortisol and lactic acid are also present in large numbers, the body is more likely to suffer from inflammatory conditions. With age and a decrease in testosterone, many men begin to experience anxiety and depression when they realize that they are suffering from erectile dysfunction. Johanan Rand addresses this issue with psychological treatment as well as hormone-replacement therapy. As the man’s hormone levels rise, Johanan Rand can incorporate exercise into the program with weight-training.
IV Nutrient Therapy
The IV Nutrient Therapy addresses the entire person and treats all of the patient’s chief complaints. This therapy includes an exercise program and a diet program. Patients undergo blood tests so that Johanan Rand can find out if the patient is deficient in any vitamins or minerals. These blood tests can also determine whether or not the patient is susceptible to many diseases. Patients who already have chronic illnesses benefit from blood testing because the results make it possible for Johanan Rand to address any deficiencies that are contributing to the patient’s symptoms.
Along with hormone levels, Johanan Rand focuses on nutrition. He teaches his patients how they can strike a balance between healthy fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. The blood tests that patients undergo also help him prescribe the most appropriate supplements for each individual patient. Included in this group of nutrients are antioxidants that prevent cancer and free radical formation, so disease prevention is at the heart of the diet (https://www.crunchbase.com/person/dr-dov-rand).
Johanan Rand is aware that being healthy is not just about eating a healthy diet and receiving treatment for specific illnesses. He also wholeheartedly believes in exercise. Johanan Rand recommends that his patients engage in a cardiovascular exercise routine that improves cardiac capacity. He believes that his patients need to start a weight-training program because it is imperative that each person increases his body mass as he decreases his body fat. This helps prevent diseases that are associated with aging.
Johanan Rand’s programs described above are what constitute “plastic surgery from the inside,” but Dr. Rand did not neglect the fact that his patients may wish to have plastic surgery on their faces and bodies as well. For this reason, Healthy Aging Medical Centers offers aesthetic services, such as fillers, Botox, and other procedures (Twitter).
