What Patients Say

"We had been to other doctors to try to explain that we believed in a natural method to recover from Autism. They did not understand what we wanted and we had to explain it to them. You did the proper testing to find out exactly what individual needs Robbie had and explained in great detail how and why these things needed to be done."

Treatment Specialization

We Treat the Whole Patient

Our services and treatments are a blending of conventional and alternative philosophies for health. Dr. Levin incorporates a vast array of scientific knowledge gathered from over 50 years of practice and from innumerable resources. The office uses the most reliable laboratories and the highest grade therapies in order to provide the most effective treatments available. This practice is focused on patients with chronic illnesses – “The Stepchild of American Medicine.”

Dr. Levin is committed to providing his patients innovative medical services and therapies that may not be readily available elsewhere and to providing each patient with information about his/her health and available treatments in order for each patient to make an informed choice.

Alternative medicine has been around for centuries and recognizes that the patient presents at the physician’s office as the sum total of all the patient has ever been, thought experienced, desired, consumed, or any activity she/he has ever engaged in. Dr. Levin realizes this, as well, so, instead of a “pill for your ill” (or symptom), Dr. Levin strives to bring your whole being into focus. The only way to accomplish this is for a doctor to spend more time with each new patient than insurance companies are willing to pay for. This accounts for the lengthy initial office visits, to allow a thorough review of previous records and an in depth current history with review of questionnaires; a long second consultation to review new laboratory tests and make a working diagnosis, followed by a discussion of the various options for treatment.

The natural approach to healing has a long history. Before there were pills, there were herbs. Dr. Levin recognizes the incredible advances in medical science, but insists on non-evasive and more body-friendly approaches whenever possible.

Healing is not just the alleviation of symptoms, but getting at the underlying causes for the symptoms. You may share symptoms with another person, but this does not mean you have the same underlying conditions causing the same symptoms. And since you are an individual, your therapy must be carefully planned to meet your underlying conditions and symptoms.

Advanced Longevity Therapy

Dr. Levin emphasizes the quality of life in the elderly. This therapy takes into account your entire health picture--genetic, infection, chemical, physical, nutritional, and behavioral factors. This means Dr. Levin emphasizes prevention of disease, detoxification, and lifestyle changes to optimize and extend quality years of life. This may include hormone replacement, supplement therapy, among other choices.

Anti-Aging Therapy

Advances in Anti-Aging Medicine

Warren M. Levin, MD, long known as "The Dean of Alternative Medicine" in New York has moved to a new office in Vienna, VA. Did you know that Dr. Levin was one of the first seven physicians in the country to be Board-certified by the International Board of Advanced Longevity Medicine, and served several years as one of the examining physicians for that organization? Or that starting in 2000, he was the Principal Investigator in a nationwide, multi-centered, I.R.B.-approved research study (over 150 practitioners) on the use of Human Growth Hormone in healthy aging adults?

Although Life Expectancy has increased dramatically, the quality of life in the aging population has seriously declined. Our bodies are all challenged by the enormous changes in our environment - pollution; reduced soil quality, the Food Technology Industry which has succeeded in fooling our senses into thinking that chemicals are better than Nature’s harvest; the artificial fertilizers that maximize yield-per-acre at the expense of nutritional value of our crops; pesticides; fungicides; preservatives, have created deficiencies of critical nutrients in our food supply. Adulterated farm animal diets, supplemented by antibiotics, hormones, and forced feeding – with simultaneous restriction of normal activity of our livestock – create abnormal animal fats in excess quantities, that are loaded with thousands of chemicals that were unknown on the planet 50 years ago. As we age, they accumulate in our bodies as well.

In addition, we are besieged by toxic wastes, indoor chemical pollution and heavy metal poisons such as lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum - all of which overload our metabolic machinery for detoxification, and trigger free radical reactions that damage our organs and our genes.

At what age should you begin to plan for a healthy old age?

Senescence - the process of aging - is accompanied by a "loss of organ reserve capacity" throughout the body. Muscles weaken, glands reduce secretions, digestion is impaired (further reducing our nutritional state), memory and concentration decline, and sexual functions diminish.

If professional athletes are "over the hill" at 35, where will YOU be at 40? 50? 65? 85?

The exciting news is that there are new techniques that can add years to your life and life to your years. Good nutrition, exercise, detoxification, supplements, antioxidants, stress reduction, chelation therapy, and hormone replacement/enhancement (including BIOIDENTICAL Testosterone, Estrogen & Progesterone, Adrenal, Thyroid and Human Growth Hormone) are major techniques for rebalancing and rejuvenating the aging body.

There is no better return on any investment than good health and a high level quality of life that results in fulfilling the maxim of Dr. Ivan Popov - a pioneer in Longevity Medicine, and a mentor to Dr. Levin:

Wouldn't it be great if we could all die young...late in life!

Growth Hormone Replacement After Age 40

Somatotrophin is the proper name for Growth Hormone (GH), a natural hormone of the body that was originally named because of its ability to stimulate growth in children. However, subsequent research has shown that GH is necessary for proper maintenance and function of practically all systems in the body. Disease or trauma that destroys tissue responsible for production of GH by the body rapidly results in many negative changes including loss of muscle and strength, gain of abdominal fat, loss of bone, heart and circulatory disorders, reduced metabolism, loss of insulin sensitivity with an inability to regulate blood sugars and many other subtle effects that reduce quality of life. That is why the hormone’s proper name is Somato (relating to the body)-trophin (relating to nutrition or support).

During aging, one of the first hormone systems to progressively lose activity is that which produces GH. This negative change can be detected in most people during the mid to late 30’s and probably accounts in part for the undesirable changes in body form and function that we associate with aging. Accordingly, GH replacement has become popular as a method intended to delay the progression of age-related physical and mental decline. However, this indication for GH has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and therefore, many people are taking the hormone without benefit of a program to monitor the safety and effectiveness of GH replacement during normal aging.

As one of the first physicians certified by the International Board of Advanced Longevity Medicine, and now a member of the Board of Examiners evaluating other applicants for Board Certification, Warren M. Levin, MD recognizes the potential value of GH replacement after age 40, but he is first and foremost concerned with his patients’ health and well-being. In recognition of his 25+ years of leadership in clinical integrative medicine, Dr. Levin has been named the Principal Investigator in a nationwide, multi-centered, outpatient, FDA-reviewed, patient-funded study that is intended to provide a carefully monitored program of hormone replacement using either GH itself, or a hormone that stimulates the body to produce more of its own GH.

In addition to the FDA review, this program has been approved by a national Institutional Review Board (IRB) to ensure that it meets the highest moral and ethical standards for human participation. We welcome your questions and requests for details about this program and invite you to become an active participant in it.

Remember: If you're not preventing disease you are preventing health.

Chelation (key-la-shun)

Chelation therapy utilizes several different substances to help the body eliminate unwanted (usually toxic) minerals, including Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, and Aluminum. Note, in some cases, useful minerals are lost too, so careful pre-testing and post treatment follow up is required.

One of the first substances used was the administration of a man-made amino acid called EDTA into the veins -- EDTA is an abbreviation for ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid. Properly used, EDTA is the BEST form of Preventative Medicine for degenerative cardiovascular diseases, because it also removes Calcium, and essential mineral that tends to accumulate with age and contributes then to arteriosclerotic changes in the heart, brain, and peripheral circulation.

Dr. Levin gave his first Chelation treatment in 1968 to a woman who was dying from congestive heart failure (from rheumatic heart disease and hypertension), with insulin dependent diabetes, gout and kidney failure. She “came back” and lived at a whole new level of energy for over 15 months. That began his career as one of the leaders of this “controversial” therapy that has helped thousands of patients to “Bypass the Bypass Surgery.”

Neurotransmitter Precursors for Migraines, Depression, Weight Loss

Using neurotransmitter precursors for depression, migraines and obesity

Why do most drugs for depression work well at first and then fail? The answer is in the name of these drugs. Serotonin "uptake inhibitors" inhibit your body from re-absorbing important neurotransmitters each time your nerves use them to send messages. So your reservoir of these neurotransmitters gets depleted.

You can't take neurotransmitters orally or by injection, because they don't cross the blood brain barrier. An alternative therapy prescribes the building blocks or "precursor" molecules, so that the body will manufacture neurotransmitters naturally and refill the reservoirs.
