Dr. Kent Holtorf – Bringing Hope Where There Was None

Health. Without it, you have nothing. Your vitality is your quality of life. All too often, people suffer with symptoms for years because their doctors cannot find the cause and don’t know how to treat them. It’s a godsend to find a medical practice dedicated to going beyond standard treatments in order to find the latest procedures and natural remedies to cure their patients’ physical issues. This is what you will find at the Holtorf Medical Group, Inc. In fact, people travel from all over the country to find the the answers to their prayers. And they do, with Dr. Kent Holtorf, MD.

Leading the charge at Holtorf Medical Group, Dr. Holtorf and his associates specialize in natural, prescription Bioidentical Hormone Replacement,  Complex Endocrine Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Infectious Diseases, Fatigue Syndromes and Neurological Illnesses. The Holtorf Medical Group also safely and naturally treats weight loss, multiple sclerosis, hypertension, heart disease, low libido, diabetes, menopause and various types of cancer. Many people who have hit brick walls and had not had any quality of life have found solutions and salvation at the Holtorf Medical Group in Torrance, CA.

Dr. Holtorf has been singing the praises of using natural hormones verses synthetic ones years before other members of the medical community got on board. Using safe and natural pharmaceutical hormones, the Holtorf Medical Group is able to obtain positive results without the negative side effects of synthetic hormones, which often includes increased risk of stroke, heart attack and cancer, weight gain, depression and fatigue. Here is a video we did with Dr. Holtorf for LAsThePlace.com.

Keeping up with the latest medical journals and treatments is the key to the Holtorf Group finding solutions to chronic medical conditions when other doctors cannot. Shockingly enough, most doctors rely solely on what they learned in medical school and don’t bother to keep up to date with the latest advancements and research. This is not the case at Holtorf Medical Group, and Dr. Holtorf is tireless when it comes to turning over ever leaf, studying up on the latest information and research. The doctors on staff are experts and pioneers in their fields. This forward thinking medical practice is able to determine the cause of their patients’ symptoms, because unlike at other practices, Holtorf Medical Group, Inc. takes the time to go beyond standard testing, as well as discusses each patient’s medical history, while determining the physiological causes of their symptoms. They truly are life-savers!

Dr. Kent Holtorf, M.D.

Dr. Holtorf is a diplomate and a board examiner for American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine (ABAAM). As a board examiner, Dr. Holtorf is responsible for administering the oral portion of the board exam and evaluating the physicians’ responses to determine if their knowledge base in endocrinology and natural hormones is high enough to receive board certification in this field.

Dr. Holtorf received his doctorate of medicine from St. Louis University with residency training at UCLA. He has personally trained physicians across the country in the use of bioidentical hormones, hypothyroidism, complex endocrine dysfunction and innovative treatments of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and chronic infectious diseases, including Lyme disease. He was the founding medical director and developed the protocols for Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers and other centers across the country.

Take Control

Finding relief from chronic symptoms, especially when other doctors insist there is no cure, can be life altering. The Holtorf Medical Group, Inc. website offers detailed descriptions of these different types of conditions and the testing that can be done to determine treatment, which will improve the quality of their patients’ lives.

Patient Response

Many patients feel like they’ve been given a new lease on life after receiving treatment at the Holtorf Medical Group, Inc.

Tracey D., who went to Holtorf Medical Group for  her chronic fatigue syndrome, has stated, “They will use their knowledge along with your own knowledge of how your health has changed; and they will partner with you to help you get better. Most of my health issues went undiagnosed for over fifteen years.  Dr. Wightman discovered many conditions that he was able to correct or put in remission.”

Likewise, Steve B., who was treated for weight and health issues, has said,  “For years, I spent a lot of time and money on care that left me a 315 lb hormone wreck. I was tired of taking thyroid medicine that seemed to make my weight worse and not better, I was tired all the time, and not getting the answers from all the different doctors and specialists I had seen. I was close to giving up, but someone recommended the Holtorf Medical Group… It’s been just over 12 months since I saw Dr Wightman and things have changed a lot. I dropped to 190 lb and never felt better.”

Sydney C. was impressed with how knowledgeable her doctors were, “From my first appointment I could tell that this person knew what he was talking about! Hormones play an enormous role in our body’s health…I have just lost 15 pounds. I have boundless energy.”

Bonnie L., suffered from exhaustion, depression and severe anxiety before finding some relief at Holtorf.  “Dr. Holtorf truly practices proactive, cutting-edge medicine. It really does feel like he works miracles. I have referred several friends to him, and they have all had the same reaction. My family is considering moving away from the Torrance area, but no matter where I move I will fly back to see Dr. Holtorf. There is nobody else I would trust to manage my thyroid issues. Thank you so much, Dr. Holtorf!!”

  1. Wow, Dr. Holtorf — Your practice sounds a lot like Hormones by Hart, by Cheryle Hart, M.D. As a patient of hers I have heard that she is moving to the Bay Area or East Bay. She is looking to open up a bio-identical hormone practice. That would sure be great if you two got together!
