Dr. Breen’s Bioidentical Hormone Therapy program:
- Phase 1: Optimize hormones to 20-30 year old levels indefinitely
Traditional medicine fails to understand the health benefits or hormone optimization. In the traditional medical model doctors treat patients based on normal lab values. What this means is that if your lab values come back normal for your age, you do not get hormone supplementation. This philosophy of patient care is obsolete and ignores the health benefits of having optimal hormone levels. In the traditional medical model, a 55-year old man presents to his doctor to have his testosterone levels checked because he has a decrease in libido, poor energy levels, increased fat, and depression. After checking his levels his doctor reports that they are normal for his age, and instead of treating with testosterone the patient leaves with a prescription for Lexapro for his depression and Viagra for his erectile dysfunction and decreased libido.
This model ignores the patients’ complaints and assumes that normal is optimal. There is a plethora of medical literature that says patients should have their hormone levels optimized to the levels they had in their twenties. Instead of getting two prescription drugs, the correct treatment should have been to optimize his testosterone levels. Dr. Breen optimizes all hormones for all of his patients that show signs and have symptoms of hormone deficiency.
- Phase 2: Customize a unique exercise and nutrition plan
The future of medicine is customization. No two patients are alike and therefore, should not receive the same nutritional advice. We can now test for specific nutritional deficiencies and customize a plan that is unique to your current metabolic state.
Dr. Breen will tell you exactly what supplements you should take based on science and the latest pier reviewed medical journals. He takes the guesswork out of the plethora of choices you have when you walk into a health food store. He will calculate your exact body composition and tell you how many calories your body burns each day at rest, which is known as the basal metabolic rate. He will tell which foods to avoid and specifically which foods to eat. Even more importantly, he will tell you when to eat during the day and how much. He leaves nothing to your imagination. Achieving your ideal body weight is mandatory, and Dr. Breen will give you the tools you achieve that goal.
- Phase 3: A functional, holistic and preventive approach
Unfortunately, most chronic diseases progress to 80% or more to killing you before you know they are there. Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders, like rheumatoid arthritis. The traditional medical model, which focuses on symptom management, is failing to stop the proliferation of chronic disease. Most physicians are not trained to access the underlying causes of chronic disease and to apply nutrition, exercise, and hormone optimization to both treat and prevent these illnesses in their patients.
Functional medicine is looking at patients from a global perspective. For example, depression and other mood disorders are many times the result of nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and environmental toxins. Too often, patients that have depression as a result of hypothyroidism for example are given drugs like Prozac when the correct treatment is give thyroid hormone. Many patients in the United States right now with mood disorders are being treated with anti-depressants, when the real problem is mercury toxicity that is not being considered.
Dr. Sean Breen’s preventive medical approach takes into account the unique genetic makeup of each individual, exposures to environmental toxins, and the aspects of today’s lifestyles, which have a direct influence on the rise in chronic disease. Functional medicine allows him to diagnose the root cause of each patient’s illness. Sean Breen, D.O. designed this program to coach you back to health. Patients will be given a 12- month plan, which tells them the specific steps they should be taken on a daily, weekly, quarterly, and annual basis.
Throughout the course of the program Dr. Breen will teach you:
- What hormones you need to optimize
- What supplements you should be taking and what supplements are not necessary
- When to perform a cleanse or detox
- How to determine your exact caloric intake necessary for optimal health.
