BodyLogicMD, America’s largest network of highly trained physicians specializing in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), fitness and nutrition, is pleased to announce the highly anticipated opening of the first Nevada-based practice, led by Jack Anstandig, M.D. Dr. Anstandig focuses his Las Vegas practice on addressing the overwhelming demand of women and men in their 30s and older seeking relief from the symptoms of hormonal imbalance and other signs of aging related to perimenopause, menopause and andropause (the male menopause).
Bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body; matching the body’s natural hormones molecule by molecule. They are referred to as “All Natural” because they are extracted from soy and yams. Bioidentical hormones are processed by a compounding pharmacist. Once the plant-based hormone is processed, its structure is identical to the estrogen, progesterone, and androgen hormones produced naturally by one’s body. This is why our bodies can metabolize them naturally as it was designed to do, with minimal or no bioidentical hormones risks or side effects.
The overwhelming response to Oprah, Suzanne Somers, Dr. Phil and Robin McGraw talking about bioidentical hormone therapy continues and in order to meet the increased demand, BodyLogicMD continues to welcome additional bioidentical hormone replacement therapy doctors to our national network. We have identified yet another extremely qualified practitioner who specializes in this exciting field of anti-aging medicine. Dr. George Solomon will be joining BodyLogicMD of Orlando and this will allow more patients afflicted by hormonal imbalances to find relief from fatigue, memory loss, hot flashes, mood swings, and more with bioidentical hormone therapy.
Dr. Alicia Stanton, Chief Medical Officer, BodyLogicMD of Manchester applauds Drs. Schwartz, Holtorf and Brownstein for clearing some of the confusion surrounding bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Stanton shares her thoughts on the Wall Street Journal article published yesterday.
