Dr. Dov Rand is an anti-aging specialist who focuses on patient care and education. As a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, which represents over 26,000 physicians throughout the world, Dr. Dov Rand is one of the most trusted specialists in New Jersey. In fact, he’s not only received the Patient Recognition Award for four consecutive years, but has also won the Compassionate Doctor Recognition Award and the Patients’ Choice Award.
One of the many reasons Dr. Dov Rand is so respected among patients is because of his ability to simplify complex concepts into easily digestible pieces. This allows patients to learn more about their health and learn about the steps they can take to enjoy a better quality of life. “Specifically, a patient’s lifestyle will have a direct impact on his or her ability to perform at work or enjoy life,” says Dr. Dov Rand.
When consulting with patients, Dr. Dov Rand focuses on the small steps that they can take on a daily basis to improve their quality of life and prevent degenerative diseases. These steps for healthy living include:
- Deep breathing. Whether it’s yoga, exercise, or an intentional focus on deep breaths, improving the quality of our breathing rejuvenates the body and gives it an opportunity to grow and refresh, says Dr. Dov Rand. Specifically, diaphragmatic breathing that is slow and deep allows the body to relax and encourages the body to flush toxic chemicals created from stress.
- Get sleep. In today’s culture, the demands of life and work can affect our quality of sleep. However, sleep is one of the most important elements of our daily routine. “Sleep is the time when your body has the opportunity to rejuvenate, repair torn tissues, and encourage muscle growth,” says Dr. Dov Rand. “If there’s something to cut back on, sleep isn’t one of them.”
- Eat healthier. If there is one area where we can cut back on, however, it’s the amount of food we eat, says Dr. Dov Rand. Excess calories, especially from fatty foods, can put unnecessary fat and oils into our body. This will not only clog our arteries, but will weaken our hearts as well.
“The secrets to healthy living aren’t rocket science,” says Dr. Dov Rand. “In fact, most people know what they should and shouldn’t be doing to their bodies. But it’s the conscious effort on a daily basis that makes that happen.”
The healthier we live, the greater our chances for a more fulfilled and healthy life, says Dr. Dov Rand.
