Dear Leslie and all the staff at the The LOHAD Center,
I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to participate in my six week makeover. I lost over 30 pounds and lost three pant sizes. Dr. Young was able to help me feel much better with the HRT therapy and learning what foods to eat.
As a youth growing up in South Florida, I spent a lot of time unprotected in the sun. Over time the damage was very apparent in my face. With the treatments I received from Marcela and Terri, my face feels smooth and looks years younger. They were able to reverse the sun damage and restore my face to a more youthful appearance.
As a patient there for the past several months I was always greeted with professionalism and courtesy. You staff always made me feel welcome. This was also apparent in talking with other clients who were very pleased with the services offered by The LOHAD Center.
A special thanks to Dawn and Susanne who put up with my hectic work schedule and were able to accommodate my busy schedule.
The LOHAD Center offers the whole package when it comes to helping men and women regain the zest for life that is lost with age. I appreciated the professional staff that was always there when I was in need of anything, and very knowledgeable about healthy living and helping me to reach my goals. Through hormone replacement I have more energy and sleep much better at night. I never thought of needing help with my hormones because my doctor would always say they were normal for a woman my age, but I wanted to feel younger. Therefore, identical hormone replacement was the right solution for me! Having a doctor on staff also helped me ﬁnd the best plan for weight loss. The facials and massages helped me pamper myself when I needed a lift, as well as the medical aesthetician who offers incredible techniques, such as Carboxy, that helps to tighten and rejuvenate collagen to create younger looking skin. Hands down this has been the best experience for me reaching my goal for weight loss and regaining the youthfulness I had lost.
I scheduled a meeting with Dr. Young who discussed the program and how it work best for me. I decided then to move forward. After my blood work was done it was discovered that not only was I overweight but I had very low testosterone and high estrogen. I started the HCG Program in August of 2011 along with Hormone Replacement Therapy and to this day I’ve lost almost 70 pounds!! I feel great and I’m excited to lose another 50-60 pounds more. The folks at The LOHAD Center are absolutely fantastic! They’ve taught me what to look for on labels when I go shopping to help me eat healthier. They are always there for me if I have any questions or concerns. In the few short months I’ve been there they’ve become like my second family. I can’t stress how much I recommend The LOHAD Center for Anti-Aging!

The change I felt was almost immediate. I hadn’t been sick and had no specific ailments to talk of, however, I was sluggish and felt that my body should have been capable of more.
Almost immediately I felt better. I found that if I took the enzymes I no longer had the “afternoon crashes” or “after meal drops”. Digestive enzymes have become a staple for me and for my family.
The hormone therapy made me more energized, more focused and gave me the ability to carry on much longer days. My muscle definition increased and my workouts were more productive.
It was explained to me that I was just replacing the hormones and enzymes that my body was no longer able to make.
I have continued to get all of my health care needs met at The LOHAD Center. Dr. Young is incredibly personable and thorough and the staff at The LOHAD Center makes me feel like I am their only patient. That initial trip to The LOHAD Center significantly changed my life.
I have many friends who purchased bogus HCG drops on-line. Others purchased genuine HCG and tried to follow a diet program on their own. All of them had some degree of success due to the calorie restriction but all of them gained their weight back.
The LOHAD Center’s physician personally prescribed the correct amount of pharmaceutical grade HCG for each individual. The highly skilled medical staff provides all of the education, personal supervision and friendly support. Dawn is especially helpful and continued to educate and encourage me throughout the entire process. The success I have had was not magical and required some discipline and dedication. However, following The LOHAD Center’s medically proven HCG weight loss program enabled me to achieve results that I am so thrilled with and am sure will be long term.
When I first met Dr. Young, he ordered a very detailed blood test that not only gave him the information necessary to correctly adjust medication but found that my cholesterol was resistant to the type of medication I had been taking. Using expertise and years of experience he prescribed a regiment of prescribed medications which were tailored to my unique set of medical factors making me feel better than I have felt in years.
I would highly recommend The LOHAD Center and Dr. Young to anyone who wants to feel 20+ years younger. The caring staff and excellent management make me feel like a member of the family rather than “just a patient.”
Thank you for opening The LOHAD Center to help all of us who want to feel young again. I know you will become one of the leading anti-aging clinics in the nation.
During the course of two years I hadn’t felt well at all, some illnesses were specific & treatable, others, well they were just there. Symptoms included (not all at the same time) ringing in ears, sore throat, fuzzy feeling, tired, slight headache, cold, acid reflux, sinus problems, sleepy, insomnia, vision trouble, not hungry, no taste, emotional, lathargic, unable to concentrate, flue like symptoms, etc,. In the course of 6 months I had been to the Doctor 9 times & had just about everything check out (ENT, sleep study, Gastro, allergist, but not the cardiologist (doctor said no reason). I really thought I had a serious undiagnosed disease I needed HOUSE. My primary doctor was at a loss & suggested Bio-Identical Hormones.
Immediately Googled bio-identical, found The LOHAD Center & scheduled an appointment. March 25, 2010. They explained everything, took blood 4 lab work including hormone testing. I saw their Dr Young about 10 days later. Hormones were in the tank, immediately put me a Bio Identical Hormones, and changed my thyroid med from Synthroid to Bio-Identical Armour Thyroid. I had gotten fat, Dr Young said the word obese, He wanted me to go on no carbs & take MIC shots. I tried my best with no carbs; I cut out the worst grains (pasta, rice breads) white (sugar, flour etc) but allowed some fruits & veggies, no soda & alcohol & added MICs.
Next, this is huge, the Food Antigen Test, which test your body for food intolerances (4-16). I had 28 food intolerances, I cried as he read the list. I had felt so awful for years & had been really trying to feed my body good foods, but I was making things worse. Some of my foods: diary-cow, soy (it’s in a ton of foods), gluten, wheat, mustard, apples, grapefruits, lemons, oranges, cherries, pumpkin, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, peppers, potatoes, sweet potatoes, peppermint (helped my acid reflux), cashews & peanuts (protein), gelatin (vitamins) you’d be surprised), saccharin, grouper, shrimp, scallops & halibut. (large intolerance)
I embraced this food intolerance, cut it all out, cold turkey, no beer, wine alcohol, sodas, no restaurants…amazingly from the 3-25 to May 5 2010, I lost 30 pounds which was the bonus, because I FELT GREAT, back to my old energetic self. This SAVED me.
Two years later, still feeling good, I cheat on my Food Antigen. Today I had a craving peanut butter & jelly sandwich, but I won’t cheat today or maybe for the rest of the week. The good news if you follow the plan by rotating your food, stay away from the Avoid List, you’ll get better everyday & will eliminate or reduce the severity of your food intolerances. Many of my initial food intolerances were off the chart, I’m now down to 16 and they are marginal at best. Some I think I’ll have forever such as cow’s milk, soy, gluten, gelatin, red dye #2, & saccharin, I can live with that. Knowing if I rotate my diet, avoid the foods I should, I’ll be happy & healthy.
The BONUS, once I got my hormones & food intolerances under control, most of my symptoms went away & I was able to stop taking acid reflux medicine & others meds. My knees & back no longer ache as they once did, & my arthritis in my hand is gone except when & cheat too much. My sinus issue is gone & I sleep without the aid of a sleep aid. Food intolerances cause inflammation which can be in tissue, mussels or organs, that’s where the symptoms start, then snowballs from there.
Thanks, The LOHAD Center for everything.
In January of 2011, my husband heard about the food allergy blood test while listening to First Coast Living on Channel 12. He told me he thought I would benefit from this testing. I had identified a few items that I was allergic to just by my reaction to them. I made an appointment to have the food allergy blood test. When the results came back, I was surprised that there were 16 things on the list. I started eliminating those items from my diet that day. In the mean time, Dr. Young had identified 18 things that needed help! ( He said I was working him to death!! ) He started by replacing my synthetic hormones with bio-identical hormones and adding the Armour Thyroid. My vitamin D was very low so he added the Vitamin D drops that have helped my Vitamin D levels. After a few months, I started to notice a big difference in the way I felt. I had struggled with irritable bowel syndrome for years. When I began eliminating those foods that were on my list, the IBS disappeared. I do not have any problems with irritable bowel now!
I also noticed that I had more energy. I had gained a lot of weight(for me) over the past few years. I did not feel like doing any exercise at the time. My friend talked me into taking a Zumba Gold class at the gym once a week. After a few months, I noticed that the class was too easy for me. We added two regular Zumba classes as well as yoga to our exercise routine. I go to the gym about 5 days a week now. I have lost 25 pounds and feel like I have enough energy to do whatever I want to do. My list with Dr. Young is down to 2 or 3 things now. We’re still trying to get my Vitamin D levels up a bit more and my “bad” cholesterol down. My “good” cholesterol is so good that it outweighs the bad. I cannot imagine what my life would be like if I hadn’t found the Lohad Center. I am thankful that someone took the time to care about me. Thank you so much!
