Dr. Johanan Rand: Revitalizing Youth by Nutritional Therapy and Hormone Replacement

Dr. Johanan Rand is a Bioidentical Doctor, Physiatrist, and Founder of Healthy Aging Medical Centers in West Orange, New Jersey. He developed a practice that proactively helps patients balance their hormone levels through diet and hormone optimization. He developed the practice, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement, that allows his patients to regenerate their hormones so they function at optimal levels. Nutritional therapy and hormone replacement alleviates symptoms of anxiety while assisting in muscle gain and weight loss (Doximity).

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement was designed to help people retain their youth by restoring their hormone levels. The ultimate goal is to regenerate a healthy balance of hormones through vitamins, nutrition, and exercise. As people get older, hormones tend to decline resulting in anxiety, depression, sleep problems, increased risk of cancer and other progressive illnesses that come from aging. Dr. Johanan provides patients with an individual detoxification program that incorporates diet, exercise and vitamins to restore hormones.

Hormones can be divided into two factors, in which Dr.Johanan compares to “the sea saw effect”, where you have good hormones and bad hormones on each side. As aging appears, bad hormones may override the good hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone; which tend to be prominent during youth. With an increase level of our good hormones, we can prevent certain diseases such as cancer and heart disease while increasing vigor. The HCG Diet, known as human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that is produced in women during pregnancy. Through this diet, people are able to lose weight and receive several benefits such as increased energy, morale, and healthy insulin levels.

The HCG Diet has been proven to suppress appetite by lowering calorie intake to 500 calories a day; eating a low calorie diet results in feeling less hungry and more satisfied after meals. Although challenging, the HCG Diet has been proven that patients can lose several pounds and achieve good hormone levels while still being able to eat their favorite foods.
