Breakthrough: Eight Steps to Wellness.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) September 19, 2008
Suzanne Somers answers this bioidentical hormone question best in her recently released book, "Breakthrough: Eight Steps to Wellness." Does aging cause a reduction of hormones in the body or does a reduction of hormones in the body cause aging? BodyLogicMD physicians report that a reduction of hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone can cause premature aging and that bioidentical hormone therapy can help reverse these age-related symptoms.
Bioidentical hormone therapy alleviates symptoms caused by menopause and andropause (the male menopause) such as weight gain, memory loss, low libido, mood swings, and can overall help restore youthful vitality to the body.
"We begin feeling aging symptoms between our thirties and forties," said BodyLogicMD Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Alicia Stanton. "The aging process is different for men and women. Men usually complain of increased fatigue and decreased mental sharpness, while women experience typical peri-menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and mood swings."
Additionally, symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women and men are often misdiagnosed as depression or anxiety over aging.
"I see many patients who are on a regimen of anti-depressants when they have their first visit," said Dr. Stanton. 'My patients are relieved to hear their symptoms are caused by hormonal imbalance rather than depression."
Patients who visit BodyLogicMD first encounter diagnostic testing in the form of blood or saliva samples, followed by a consultation appointment with their physician, who then decides, based on the test results, if a bioidentical hormone therapy program is necessary. In addition, the physician may recommend lifestyle modifications including nutritional supplements, establishing a fitness routine, and diet changes.
Founded in 2003, BodyLogicMD currently has 19 locations nationwide each with highly trained, physician-owned practices specializing in natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy integrated with fitness and nutrition for men and women suffering from hormonal imbalance, menopause, and andropause. Suzanne Somers' latest book "Breakthrough: Eight Steps to Wellness" lists BodyLogicMD as an expert source and her previous book, "Ageless, The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones" dedicates an entire chapter to BodyLogicMD.
