Center For Clinical Age Management was
founded by Dr.
Allyn A. Brizel whom is
formally trained in Internal Medicine at Nassau County Medical
Center in Long Island, New York.
Following his completion of medical training
a very profound life-changing event took place. His spouse at
a very young age developed what eventually was diagnosed as
latrogenic induced premature menopause. For approximately two
years his wife suffered from all the classic symptoms of menopause;
mood swings, palpitations, fragmented sleep, depression and
fatigue. Due to her age, these complaints were thought to be
psychosomatic (in her head) at first. When her diagnosis was
eventually made after seeing multiple different specialists
she was then placed on your standard one size fits all hormone
replacement primarin and provera. Well needless to say his wife
felt worse if you can think that was possible, on these hormones.
She was tried on a multitude of different combination of synthetic
hormone replacement including low dose contraceptive pills.
To know avail she simply proceeded to decompensate and eventually
stated that she could no longer take these hormones and decided
to go off everything.
At this point Dr. Brizel decided he would have to take on the
subject of menopause and hormone replacement. These studies
eventually led him to what is currently being called Natural
Hormone Replacement Therapy (NHRT) or bio-identical hormone
replacement. Needless to say within a week of being placed on
a combination of bio-identical estradiol, progesterone and testosterone
she became her old self. Described as a fog being lifted off
her, sleep patterns returned to normal, mood fluctuations leveled,
palpitations disappeared and skin dryness was resolved.
Realizing the desperate need for such
treatments Dr. Brizel went on to become a Diplomat of the
Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M)
- a medical organization which recognizes the benefits of NHRT),
a Certified Menopause Clinician, a Certified Clinical Bone Densitometrist,

American Menopause Society, Member
