When I say, “hot flashes” what comes to mind? Well first, that this must be a woman and next, menopause. Those two things, woman and menopause seem to be inseparable. And that is not an assumption but a reality because women are the ones who face this problem and rather abruptly when it begins.
Women go through this when they hit pre-menopause and then go into overdrive when they hit menopause. Most women going through menopause will wake in night sweat others with racing heart rate and still others with leg cramps. There are many other symptoms which can occur as well depending on the individual and hormonal shift which is occurring. It is this time that most women develop diseases that they did not have before. This is referred to as the aging process of the body. With the shift of hormones, the body starts to attract many problems like heart disease, osteoporosis, breast cancer and similar disease. To counteract this aging process Dr. Johanan Rand uses bioidentical hormones to help the woman’s body transition healthier as she ages.
Bioidentical hormones are hormones that the body recognizes and there no side effects to these hormones. Unlike traditional hormone therapy which uses synthetically derived hormones like Premarin and Provera that have many side effects bioidentical drugs like Estradiol and natural progesterone have no side effects. These bioidentical drugs are an effective way to counter effects of menopause and aging.
Dr. Johanan Rand looks at the overall health of the individual and customizes a plan for that patient. He looks at hormonal health and prescribes that bioidentical hormones that patient would need to counter aging and the effects of menopause. He also looks at the whole patient and customizes a lifestyle plan so to minimize the effects of aging.
Dr. Johanan Rand is a role model for his patients since he practices what he preaches. He also takes the same regimen for his life as well. He is the founder of Healthy Aging Medical Centers in the New Jersey area.
Dr. Johanan Rand is also familiar with Andropause which occurs in men. It is the process of hormonal change in men with the drop of testosterone and increase of estrogen. Dr. Johanan Rand has the knowledge and expertise to devise an appropriate plan for the patient.
