An “evolutionary” approach to achieving maximum weight loss and a series of integrated wellness programs aiming to reverse the effects of aging by focusing on the mid-life hormone changes that most women and men experience, was unveiled at NY Health & Wellness, located at 450 Mamaroneck Avenue in Harrison, on January 14.  News 12 anchor Tara Rosenblum emceed the ribbon-cutting event, followed by remarks from Westchester Deputy County Executive Kevin Plunkett and Westchester County Health Commissioner Sherlita Amler, M.D.  Lee Mazzilli, the famed former NY Yankees and NY Mets player/ NY Yankees coach/Baltimore Orioles manager, also attended and signed autographs.

 

The new 6,000 square-foot facility features programs and treatments to elevate the wellness-consciousness of women and men seeking to restore their energy, improve their level of fitness and nutrition, and achieve a greater sense of overall health and wellness. NY Health & Wellness is founded on the principle that “particularly in midlife, vitamin therapy, nutrition, weight-loss management, hormone optimization and other advanced integrative approaches to healthcare provide the keys to unlocking the secrets of perpetual wellness.”

 

In a soothing, non-clinical atmosphere designed to decompress, heal, and renew – the Center focuses on “Natural Hormone Optimization” – achieving natural hormone balance through supplementation and nutrition, weight loss management, expert nutritional testing and guidance, healthy aging, bioidentical hormone replacement, peri-menopause and menopause, andropause (the male menopause) and the diagnosis and treatment of chronic illness and detoxification.  An individualized treatment plan is created for each individual that combines the best of hormone and vitamin therapy, detoxification, holistic nutrition, and stress-reducing exercise.

 

In addition, NY Health & Wellness’s new weight loss program – the Revolutionary Leptin-Rx Diet, is designed to change the course of weight loss. Leptin is the protein in fat cells that regulates fat storage in the body and impacts metabolism, hunger, satiety and energy levels. Leptin directly affects insulin levels, so high leptin levels indicate “leptin resistance,” which can potentially cause heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, fatigue, obesity, elevated blood sugar, and a variety of other health problems. Leptin also plays a vital role in brain function, immune system function, thyroid function, adrenal function, stress level and reproductive function. It is crucial, therefore, to maintain balanced leptin levels in order to reduce food cravings, optimize energy, and maintain overall quality of life.

 

According to NY Health & Wellness founder Mitch Suss, “We’ve created an individualized fitness, nutrition, and psychological program, based on each person’s own hormone levels that are maximizing and energizing their vitality, virility, and fitness levels. This is accomplished by administering the proper nutrients, diet, supplements and vitamin therapy.”

 

He added, “Our program allows each person’s biological, physiological and emotional systems to attain the right ‘fuel’ to get them performing at peak levels well into their golden years.”

 

The NY Health & Wellness medical team is headed by Dr. Timothy Morley, who is among a select group of American physicians pioneering this new approach to wellness, which integrates the cornerstones of optimal health – nutrition, fitness, quality sleep and stress management, with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). He has developed pharmaceutical-grade supplements from all-natural ingredients, such as natural herbs, soothing vitamins, enriched protein and soy isolates that have been proven to reduce night sweats and hot flashes.

The team also includes clinical nutritionist Jacqui Justice, MS, CNS, who has designed individualized nutrition programs aimed at reversing years of unhealthy dieting – and the aging process; fitness and movement therapist, Lisa Avellino, who has developed a series of comprehensive exercise regimens, specific to and appropriate for each age group and lifestyle; licensed clinical social worker/certified holistic health counselor, Nina Chaifetz; and, practice manager and clinical assistant Carol Cummings.  A combination of their efforts will bring long-lasting relief to many patients who have unsuccessfully experimented with drugs, diets and sleep aids.

The entire NY Health & Wellness team works in sync to customize protocols that are designed to accommodate each individual.

 

“On the journey to optimal health, we work with each patient to make significant changes – like improving nutrition, vitamin therapy, bioidentical (as opposed to synthetic) hormone therapy, routine fitness and positive, proactive lifestyle changes –  that are transforming overall health, physical appearance and outlook.  These fundamental changes are revolutionizing the ways in which patients view themselves – physically, psychologically, and spiritually and, essentially, can reverse the effects of aging and disease,” said Dr. Morley.

 

“It is truly impossible to isolate one habit as the key to a truly long and healthy life. Think of hormones, nutrition and fitness as a three-legged stool. You cannot have optimal health if one ‘leg’ is missing,” said Dr. Morley.
