Dr. Warren M. Levin, MD - Anti-Aging Medicine, Adult Diabetes, Heavy Metal Toxicity, Autism, Chelation Therapy, Thyroid Disorders, Cardiovascular Disorders, Bio-identical Hormone Therapies, Lyme Disease, Food & Environmental Allergies Doctor – Vienna, Virgina and New York, New York
Dr. Warren M. Levin is recognized as the "East Coast Dean of Alternative Medicine." He has been a visionary in reporting the interconnections among many intractable syndromes with the Standard American Diet–which he calls SAD, the heavy metals in our environment, and other factors in the modern lifestyle and drug-oriented conventional medicine. For example, he has been
One of the first to document the connection of Candida (Yeast) infections with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and most recently with refractory Lyme disease
An early pioneer in treating Autism, Asperger’s, ADD/ADHD, and Learning Disabilities with avoidance of allergenic foods, environments, and toxins, as well as via correcting metabolic imbalances and infections.
The first to recognize and report Lyme-Induced Autism.
Among the first to offer IV Chelation Therapy for heart Disease.
One of the first to warn about the dangers of vaccine, especially Hep B for newborns, cervical cancer vaccine for young girls, and as a contributing factor to Mercury overload in infants
A pioneer in providing Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement for weight loss and anti-aging.
Dr. Levin has found that many patients have complex problems but can frequently be restored to health when treatment addresses the multiple causes rather than merely giving medication for the symptoms.
If you have come in search of optimal health and wellness with a physician who will take the time to listen to your physical and emotional challenges and will work with you to address them, Dr. Levin recognizes that each patient is a totally unique individual. The development of each patient's regimen recognizes this uniqueness.
Warren M. Levin, MD, FAAFP (ret), FACN, FAAEM relocated to Vienna, Virginia from New York City and Wilton, Connecticut.
He is recognized as the "East Coast Dean of Alternative Medicine" —establishing the first alternative and integrative medical practice in New York City (1974).
He received his medical degree from the Jefferson Medical School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dr. Levin has been Board Certified by the following institutions;
American Board of Family Physicians (ret), The American Board of Chelation Therapy, The American Board of Clinical Metal Toxicology, The American Board of Environmental Medicine, The American Board of Advanced Longevity Medicine, American Board of Environmental Medicine and The American Board of Bariatric Medicine. He is a Fellow of The Academy of Family Practice [ret], a Fellow of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine and a Fellow of The American College of Nutrition, Board of Directors of the NoVA Chapter of the NAA [National Autism Association] - Chairman of Biomedical Education.
The human body is a miraculousmachine that is designed to fix itself. No doctor can "fix" it – even the most advanced surgery requires the miracle of healing after the wound is closed." What then is the doctor's function? It is to find the underlying problem(s) that prevent healing! We must identify:
Deficiencies – Vitamins, minerals, essential fats and oils and essential carbohydrate molecules are processed out of the American diet.
Toxicities – Sudden or gradual accumulation of substances interfere with the body's biochemistry.
Infections - Acute or chronic infections are frequent but can be very difficult to identify.
Allergies - Commonly unrecognized, allergies can cause debilitating symptoms.
Hormonal (Endocrine) Imbalance – A condition which plays a major role in perpetuating disability.
The latest mouthful is "Psycho-neuro-immuno-endocrinology" – an incredible balancing act that no human can successfully emulate with prescription drugs, all of which are, by definition, foreign to healthy biochemistry.
There are many times when prescription drugs are a haven in the SHORT TERM. Dr. Levin does not say patients should NEVER use drugs, nor that they should ALWAYS avoid American medicine, or stay out of Hospitals/ERs – those can all be life-saving, or in worst-case scenarios, they can provide blessed relief from incurable symptoms. But in our facility, our objective is to foster and support the miracle of healing – it is every patient's birthright.
The Conditions We Treat are Inter-related
In 1985, Dr. Levin presented scientific research linking chronic systemic yeast withparasites, affecting diseases such as Allergies, Asthma and Chronic Fatigue/ Fibromyalgia. He found that many of these patients have complex problems but can frequently be restored to health when treatment addresses the multiple causes rather than merely giving medication for the symptoms.
Similarily with Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, Learning Disabilities, andADD/ADHD– These conditions are often linked to nutritional deficiencies, various toxins and multiple infections and Dr. Levin is notable for treating patients with non-invasive procedures.
Diabetes is another clear example of the genes interacting with the environment, so that Diabetes can be modified by correcting diet, exercise, toxins, infections, etc.
Recent informational releases by the CDC (US Center for Disease Control) concur with Dr. Levin's long time philosophy that "virtually all human diseases result from the interaction of genetic susceptibility factors and modifiable environmental factors, broadly defined to include infections, chemical, physical, nutritional and behavioral factors" (CDC, August, 2000) – and now we can identify the genetic susceptibility!
I am 89 years old and have just completed work on my 74th book. I am told that I am doing my best writing in these later years. Certainly my brain has never worked more clearly, or my inventive powers been so high. I am in good health and have none of the diseases or pains connected with old age. I take no drugs, but I do use a large number of carefully chosen nutritional supplements. I owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Warren Levin for rescuing me from a state of ill health that other doctors could do nothing about. – PAW, Faber, VA
ADD-ADHD, Learning Disabilities
Typical signs of ADD-ADHD:
Has difficulty paying attention to details or staying focused
Is easily distracted or appears not to listen when spoken to
Has memory difficulties and doesn’t follow directions
Has difficulty getting/staying organized or finishing projects
Is impulsive in action and/or speech
Is easily angered or has frequent temper tantrums
There are safe options in coping with ADD-ADHD:
Visiting a physician who can evaluate the child’s whole body is the first place to start. The physician may find other underlying conditions that need addressing but ones that may be overlooked during a routine physical exam.
Diet is important to a child with ADD-ADHD. The physician will instruct you on proven dietary changes that can assist your child in coping with this illness.
Exercise is always important for children. The physician will speak with you about exercise during the treatment plan visit.
Modifying your child’s environment to minimize distractions and safety is necessary in addition to natural therapy. Pharmaceutical therapy may be necessary, but should never be the only focus of the treatment plan.
Dr. Levin is able to evaluate your child and put together an individualized treatment plan for your child.
Asthma is marked by the constriction of the airways that become inflamed and are lined with mucus. Allergies, stress, frigid air, common colds, and exertion can trigger asthma.
Typical signs of asthma are: wheezing, coughing, tightness in the chest area, and shortness of breath.
If you or a loved one has a symptom(s) of asthma, you will need to be seen by a medical doctor to identify irritants that may be causing the asthma attacks and present an individualized treatment plan.
Dr. Levin has successfully treated asthmatic patients and welcomes you to schedule an appointment.

Andropause may affect men between the ages of 40-65 and is similar to menopause, except that it has no sudden onset. Testosterone levels drop gradually, where women’s estrogen drops rapidly at the onset of menopause.
The signs of andropause may include mood changes, decline in cognitive functions, fatigue, a loss of libido, changes in energy levels and physical agility, and depression.
Most of these symptoms can be treated successfully with diet changes, exercise, and natural supplements. It is recommended that males who are experiencing health problems or are concerned about andropause should be evaluated by a physician that focuses on the whole body rather than the blood levels of testosterone alone.
If you or a loved one is suffering from andropause, Dr. Levin is able to evaluate and put together an individualized treatment plan.
Asperger’s Syndrome (AS)
Asperger’s Syndrome is a neurobiological disorder and falls into the group known asautism spectrum disorders. Because it’s a multi-symptom illness, it may be difficult to diagnose and treat. However, it differs with Autism as the onset of AS is normally later than Autism — or it may be that is just recognized later than Autism.
Children with Asperger’s Syndrome normally have poor social skills, limited facial expressions, odd speech patterns, obsessions, sensitivity to lights/sounds that a parent may not see or notice; and may be characterized as clumsy, self-centered, and odd, with few interests and peculiar behaviors.
Getting help early and finding the right treatment plan is key in successfully living with AS.
Dr. Levin evaluates those suspected with Asperger’s Syndrome and will put together a treatment program individualized for your child.
The first time we met you (our son) knew you were going to help him. He called you “The Thinker.” After years of pain and weakness and many, many doctors, you were really the first to spend time and review his case. We always knew you had the knowledge to get him well and you helped us so much. You are a brilliant physician!- The Hutchison family

Candida is as real and as overlooked, as under treated and as misunderstood, and maligned as Lyme disease. We were taught in medical school that systemic Candida was a fatal complication of immune sup-pression, as with cancer, chemo-therapy, and eventually AIDS. Today Candida is so common-place that a serious error of logic has occurred-"If everybody has it, then it must be normal!" Yet, it is only one of a multitude of unhealthy contaminants of the intestinal tract that contributes to chronic illness.
Dr. Levin’s treatment of my allergies and chronic yeast infection has been the only treatment which has worked. -D DeJ JJ
I was bounced around from specialist to specialist… Thanks to your patience, listening and vast experience and knowledge in so many areas of the medical field, it was determined exactly what was causing my medical issues. I was dying prematurely from the Lyme and Candida and heavy metals exposure. I am grateful for the diagnosis that you made and your treatment is enabling me to start the recovery process and improve the quality of my life for my remaining years. Thanks for going the extra mile to figure out my medical issues and correct them. Barry C., Research Technician

Cardiovascular Disease (CAD)
American medicine is great in emergencies, but that is too late for starting to treat the major cause of death in this country! Heart attacks and strokes are preventable when the environment is modified to correct for various genes!
Dr. Levin was the earliest practitioner of Chelation in New York, beginning in 1973.
After having completed a program of Chelation Therapy…and after, under Dr. Levin’s guidance, having effected some lifestyle changes, including diet, vitamin and mineral supplements and regular exercise, I am now free of symptoms. – MEE, Flushing, NY
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome appeared in the mid 1970’s and is labeled as an acquired immunodeficiency disorder. It is estimated that over five million people with CFS may be undiagnosed and therefore untreated. ₁
The exact cause is still unknown. Common symptoms include:
Intense fatigue that is not improved with rest
Fatigue that is worsened by physical or mental activity
Impaired memory or concentration
Problems with sleep
Muscle or joint pain (including the jaw); morning stiffness
Sore throat or earaches
Abdominal or chest pain
Chronic cough or shortness of breath
Night sweats or bloating
Weight changes or nausea
There are natural therapies that may ease your symptoms. Please schedule an appointment with Dr. Levin to discuss your options if you or a loved one is suffering from CFS.

Diabetes is an illness caused by high levels of blood glucose that resulting from inappropriate insulin production and/or defective insulin action. People with diabetes are more susceptible to other illness and often have poor prognoses. Uncontrolled diabetes may often lead to biochemical imbalances that can prove life threatening. According to statistics, it is estimated that over 5 million people who have diabetes are undiagnosed. ₁
Type I (Juvenile Onset – insulin dependent)
Frequent urination & Extreme hunger
Type II (Adult Onset—non insulin dependent)
Any symptoms on Type I list & Blurred vision
Slow to heal from cuts & Tingling/numbness & Skin or gum problems
Just as with any illness, you deserve individualized care. Dr. Levin has successfully treated patients with both Type I and Type II diabetes. Call to make an appointment today.

…I had been an insulin dependent diabetic for thirteen years. ..and would need laser treatments within the following year. Dr. Levin put me on a program of supplements…suggested Chelation treatments, after taking great pains and time to tell me that he was not certain it would help, nor was he using EDTA for its recognized purpose…One year later my retinopathy had improved…six months later, it was completely gone. In addition, my kidney function has improved to a point within normal range, - FMS, NYC, NY
The main symptom of Fibromyalgia is sensitivity to pain. Because Fibromyalgia has overlapping symptoms of other illnesses, it is described as a syndrome rather than a disease. Fibromyalgia is often difficult to diagnose as it mimics other conditions and illnesses.
Common symptoms of Fibromyalgia:
Although there is no one test to diagnose Fibromyalgia, it is important to get relief from your symptoms. Dr. Levin has been successfully been treating those with Fibromyalgia with safe and natural products. Get your individualized treatment protocol from a physician with experience.

Heavy Metal Toxicities
In 1990, Dr. Levin was the first East Coast physician to enter an IRB study for mercury toxicity treatment. Metal poisoning is now slow, chronic, ubiquitous and frequently misdiagnosed.
…you helped me with some chronic digestive problems and fatigue. You were so successful that I didn’t need to see you for some seven years when I contracted severe mercury poisoning that you diagnosed only after eight more traditional physicians and specialists had failed. You literally saved my life in diagnosing and helping me remove the mercury. – JP, Nyack, NY

Neurosis or Hypoglocemia? by Dr. Levin
Tonight the hospital lab called to tell us that (our son) had c.diff from a stool test and they wanted to make sure that his physicians knew because they were concerned about his getting treated as soon as possible. I knew that I needed to call Dr. Levin because you are the one I trust with my kids more than anyone. I appreciate him picking up the phone after hours and listening to my concerns. As a mom, it is comforting to know that he is only a phone call away to help. – GF
Dr. Levin has been treating Lyme disease since the mid-1990s. Dr. Levin himself has had Lyme disease twice but successfully treated it early on both occasions. This makes three important points:
Early treatment is short and effective.
Unlike most other infections, long-term immunity is not guaranteed after recovery or immunization.
It is impossible (outside of a very few research facilities) to differentiate a new infection from a recurrence of an old one that has not been treated long enough. Knowing when to stop is often more difficult than making the diagnosis. Late diagnosis and short treatment is the formula for disastrous results.
Dr. Levin through time, patience , various testing, and tons of blood work, vitamins, some minerals, and medications has healed me both physically and mentally. He has corrected the deficiencies and balanced my system. I can honestly state that Dr. Warren Levin is the very best of the best. He truly cares about his patients and he goes the “whole nine yards” for them. Thank you Dr. Levin for giving me back my life. – SSL
My name is K. Jacobs. Over the last six years I have suffered from Lyme disease which has caused me memory loss, super-ventricular tachycardia, joint pain, swollen glands, and has weakened me. I have not been able to return to work. It short, Lyme Disease has simply robbed me of my life.
In my ongoing struggle with this disease is where I found comfort and hope, when I met Dr. Warren Levin. Dr. Levin is known as one of the foremost experts in the treatment of Lyme Disease as well as a Pioneer in the Field of Integrative and Alternative Medicine. He is thorough and detail oriented and does not leave a stone unturned in his search for answers for his patients. However, to me he is so much more than that-he is a compassionate man who treats his patients as human beings rather than just medical cases.
I have spent many hours having treatment in his office, in New York watching him dance around, sitting next to his patients and bringing them hope like a medical life jacket. He brings each person safely home with kind words and lots of love. How often do you find such a doctor? – K J, NYC, NY

General Practice – Migraines
At thirty-six years old, migraines robbed me of significant life function. After two years of disability and many different experimental medications and treatments, I felt like my neurologist had given up on me. I was considering an inpatient program at a headache clinic far from home. Another specialist kept encouraging me to keep trying, and so I did more research online as I could. It was increasingly hard to concentrate and remember things. Other medical problems started to surface due to my incapacitation and inactivity.
I sought out Dr. Warren M. Levin for his expertise in Lyme's Disease. I read about neurotoxins as a complication of Lyme and that they could potentially cause migraines. Upon leaving my first office visit, he had targeted my problem not as Lyme, but as a neurotransmitter disease and prescribed amino acid therapy from CHK Nutrition. He educated me and my husband in plain language and gave us confidence in the treatment.
Three days after starting the amino acids, I started to be functional again. I spent my first weekend without pain in years, and I was amazed at how joyful life could be. My daughter got her Mommy back and my husband got a new wife. Now, four months later, I am stronger and weaned off of my neurologist's prescribed medications with no return of pain. My outlook on life has changed, and I will forever be grateful to Dr. Levin for his expertise. – AZ
What a privilege it was to visit your holistic medicine practice. It is refreshing to see a physician devoting so much time to patients, + individually tailoring their care. When I decided to visit, I knew only that you had transformed the life of a patient of mine who had intractable migraines. I was unaware of the years of harassment and litigation you had endured defending your right to practice medicine—to do what you thought was best for the patient, even if it deviated from the conventional approach. If physicians strictly adhered to the standard of care, all medical progress would cease. Thank you for upholding a higher standard. We are all beneficiaries of your courage and perseverance. – WC, MD

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.
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. – T&C W, Chantilly, VA
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, etc.
Advanced Anti-Aging: Growth Hormone Replacement After 40
At what age should YOU begin to plan for a healthy old age? Dr. Levin outlines the major techniques for rebalancig and rejuvenating the aging body
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 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.”
Nutrition for the Child's Soul
Book review by Dr. Levin with practical diet advice and on the value of religious celebration for children
"What kind of Medicine do you practice?" The relationship of conventional and alternative medicine in Dr. Levin's practice. Sometimes, there is a need for pharmaceuticals in this practice. This is a last resort, but available as therapy. Dr. Levin believes in using the safest, non-invasive, more effective therapies when at all possible.

Intramuscular and Intravenous Therapy
This type of therapy offers a direct route to the cells in your body, bypassing the intestinal absorption that takes place with pills, capsules, or other oral medications. All orally ingested substances are filtered through the liver before reaching body tissues and organs. A great deal of the dosage is lost by that “first pass” while injected products are circulated throughout the entire body after injection, as a much higher concentration in the blood than is possible after oral use of the same product. It is done in the office and monitored by well trained staff. Dr. Levin’s office caters to those who are needle-shy.

Natural Hormone Therapy
With more than 40 years of experience supporting Hormone Replacement Therapy coupled with his recent research in the use of Human Growth Hormone and the new Genomics™ testing, Dr. Levin keeps his practice on the cutting edge of Advanced Longevity Medicine. He has been using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) since the mid-1990s. He utilizes thyroid and adrenal balancing as well.
This type of therapy addresses the adrenals and thyroid conditions, as well as menopause and andropause, representing the loss of youthful levels of Estrogen and Progesterones (female) and Testosterones (male).
The therapy includes bio-identical hormones (identical to those that healthy human organs make), and plant-based therapies (which have been around for centuries) to treat and reverse bone loss, osteoporosis, menopausal symptoms, fatigue, reduction of risk to breast cancer, etc.

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 delpeted. 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. An interview of Dr. Levin in Public Health Alert by Tina Garcia. (pdf)
Nutrition and Supplements
Only the highest quality supplements are recommended in this practice. Often, supplements make it unnecessary for dangerous pharmaceuticals. This therapy is safe when directions are carefully followed. Did you know that there were over 100,000 deaths [http://www.releasingfat.com/newsletter/upload/45.pdf] in one year from properly administered drugs given to patients in hospitals by qualified personnel, for the appropriate indications?
Despite the constant warnings from Medicine’s “Ivory Towers” and various governmental sources of the dangers of nutritional supplements, there was not a single death due to vitamins or minerals reported from the nation’s network of Poison Control Centers in 2009!

Vitamin C IV therapy and other high grade vitamins are available in this practice. Vitamin C IV therapy has shown to be beneficial to those suffering from chronic fatigue and other conditions. This is the best form of administering Vitamin C if you have an underlying condition that may prevent absorption (i.e. diarrhea). The IV therapy allows for the much needed vitamin to gain immediate access to your body so that it can help you to heal.

Obesity can be caused by many things, not just overeating. Some other causes may be slow metabolism, eating the wrong kinds of food, insulin resistance, inflammation, Leptin resistance, hormone imbalances, stress, and more. In order to lose weight, the underlying conditions must be detected and corrected. One of the most overlooked factors for the ultimate success of any weight loss program is the removal of the toxins that are released from their storage in body fat when fat is consumed during weight loss. There are many indications that some patients put on fat to keep toxins from getting into essential body organs. Dr. Levin offers nutritional supplementation therapies for weight control, including the all natural weight loss protocols utilizing HCG – a pituitary hormone protocol, based on the work of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, as modified by Dr. Peter Lindner and Dr. Levin over a period of many years. Dr. Levin’s contribution was the method detection and modification of the protocol because of Hypoglycemia. As a former VP of The American Society of Bariatric Physicians, Dr. Levin has used this therapy safely and effectively for over 30 years with dramatic results. This program includes weekly visits with a staff member and a Nutrient IV. Dr. Levin also taught Dr. Robert Atkins the importance of Adrenal support for Hypoglycemia during the Atkins Diet, which had been specifically negated in his first book, and subsequently added to his protocol.
