The Platt Protocol is a revolutionary breakthrough in health and wellness. It targets conditions medical science often considers incurable: ADHD, autism, fibromyalgia, depression, bipolar disorder, addiction, weight gain and many more.
About Bio-Identical Hormones
Bio-identical hormones are hormone supplements with biochemical structures that are identical to those produced by the human body. This important modality offers important therapeutic advantages with minimal potential risks.
There have been revolutionary changes and tremendous advances in hormone therapy in the last few years. Hormones are the substances that control every function of the body – the metabolic system, the immune system, the reproductive system, the nervous system, etc. As we get older, our hormone levels decline. As our hormone levels decline, so do we – both physically and mentally.
Bio-identical hormones are initially prepared as powders by pharmaceutical companies from a naturally sourced base like Mexican yam. Once determined, the amounts of various hormones are compounded by a pharmacist in a formula that addresses the individual’s unique hormonal requirements.
Dr. Platt’s mother died prematurely in 1980 of breast cancer. This event created a strong drive to uncover the mysteries of the body’s ‘Master System’. He began researching the field of natural-occurring hormones – a subject not taught in medical schools. Interviewing thousands of patients one-on-one in comprehensive sessions where the ‘whole’ person is taken into consideration, led him to the development of the Platt Protocol for hormone balancing in 2000.
Dr. Platt was one of the first physicians to prescribe customized bio-identical hormone compounds in the world. This was years before Suzanne Somers made bio-identical hormone therapy visible to the public and, to her great credit, advance it as a viable option to ultimate health and healthy aging.
The method of delivery for his state-of-the-art bio-identical hormones in our products, Platt Pro ProMax and specially formulated, compounded creams for his clients, is transdermal. This assures that the hormones are absorbed directly, efficiently and effectively into the bloodstream. (Note: The Platt Protocol does not incorporate oral progesterone supplements because they go directly to the liver that converts them into a different hormone.)
Dr. Platt’s Protocol was developed over 15 years of observing and working with thousands of patients in 2-3 hour sessions where he got to know the patient and their health issues well. Today, through his unique, comprehensive survey he can determine what hormones and supplements will best lead the patient to optimum health.
Note: Dr. Platt is not a proponent of popular saliva tests for hormone evaluation because in many cases excess adrenaline cuts off circulation to the salivary glands thus affecting the reliability of the test. A lab test ‘snapshot’ will never be as effective as observational-based, causational medicine – the most ancient and traditional alternative investigative tool.
NATURAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT
It does not matter whether you want to address weight control, wellness, anti-aging or longevity, they are all interrelated. Attention to any one of these four factors is a proactive approach to your health and can lead to disease prevention. The undeniable fact is that it’s a lot easier to prevent disease than it is to treat it.
By giving the body natural hormones that are exactly bio-equivalent to your own hormones, it is possible to restore your hormones to the same levels you had in your 20’s and 30’s. Presently, there is no more effective therapy to address difficult conditions like fibromyalgia, anger, road rage, alcoholism, drug addiction, opioid addiction, and more…. OR to prevent the inevitable decline as we get older, and, at the same time, greatly improve the quality of our lives.
