About Us

Are you frustrated by any of those difficult
symptoms that often come with aging?

If you are experiencing symptoms of fatigue, memory loss,
perimenopause, loss of strength, weight gain, irritability, or
lack of energy, you could be going through a hormonal
imbalance, or other aging-related symptoms.

But we are here to tell you, you no longer have to live with it…there
is hope, and better yet, there are clinical and scientific remedies to help
you feel and look better. The first step you should take is to educate
yourself using this website so you understand the problem…and the solution!

There is no one-size-fits all solution to your problem

At Innovative Directions in Health, we provide comprehensive anti-aging and preventive medical services. We focus heavily on how each patient feels, and take into account what his or her health risks are. We create a specific anti-aging program for you, and not a one-size-fits-all program.

We use patient symptoms AND lab results (checking levels) to guide our treatments. Many clinics use only one or the other of these. We always try to find ways to decrease risks, with every prescription and supplement that we use.

Anti-aging medicine is much more than just hormones,
it’s about addressing the chronic diseases caused by aging

At Innovative Directions in Health we believe anti-aging medicine is much more than just “Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy,” and understand the importance of administering hormones in a natural, cautious and conservative way. By monitoring and stabilizing your hormones over time, we not only help you feel great, but help decrease your risk of chronic diseases, including heart disease, strokes, diabetes, and cancer.

In 10 years, having treated more than a thousand patients, we have never
had one patient have a heart attack, stroke, blood clot or hormone related
breast cancer. Traditional hormone therapy would have resulted in more
than 50 such complications.

—Dr. Mahmud (Founder & Board Certified Physician)

Our Services include:

Anti-aging & Hormone Balancing
Our anti-aging programs always begin with clinical & laboratory evaluations.

These evaluations include a complete blood analysis, thyroid function, lipid profile, cardiac risk factors, hormone levels, vitamin D levels…along with several other tests. We begin by targeting your personal risk factors to determine your state of health.

Many of your bodily functions are controlled by hormones and a reduction in these hormones can cause many of the symptoms you are currently experiencing. Once you have been evaluated we will create a comprehensive anti-aging and possibly a hormone balancing regiment, personally crafted for you.

Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormones are derived from two natural sources, wild yams and soybeans. They are modified in a laboratory to be molecularly (biochemically) identical to the hormones that your body produces. Bioidentical hormones are indistinguishable from those the human body produces, identical in structure and function and readily accepted by the human body.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the use of natural bioidentical hormones to correct the hormone imbalance for both women and men. As you age you may begin to notice that your body and mind do not function as well as it did when you were younger. As you age your body no longer produces the proper hormone levels you need to keep you happy, healthy and alive! Our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is prescribed by our board certified physicians, and also includes a full physical exam, extensive blood tests, as well as lifestyle review, nutrition assessments and body composition analysis.
