  1. Interesting article. I think a major reason is also the lack of knowledge on the possible side effects. There has been too much speculation and not enough real scientific research on the side effects.

    This video made me a little angry – especially when Dr. Rubin explains that he was not trained to look at patients individually and vary the dosage. The two best things I’ve done to control my hot flashes during menopause are going on the compound bio-identicals that Dr. Stanton references, and using a ChiliPad (http://www.chilitechnology.com/) to cool my bed at night.

      Hi Cyndi,

      I’m so sorry for any confusion – Dr. Rubin was trained in traditional medicine, but now that he has transitioned into Anti-Aging and working with BodyLogicMD, he has found that there are alternatives to “one-size fits all” doses and remedies. He was trying to explain the difference between his old training and his new training.

      Using high-quality compounding pharmacies and bioidentical hormones, our expert physicians are able to customize the dosing and treatment for each individual patient. Being able to customize each patient’s treatment – based on their hormone level tests, symptoms and lifestyle is one of the main deciding factors that prompt our physicians to transition into a BodyLogicMD practice.

      Sincerely,
      Barbara at BodyLogicMD

  3. I am a doctor who actually makes house calls. I am also a doctor that utilizes an integrative approach to HRT. I prescribe mostly natural / bio-identical hormones in the correct ratios for humans for both men and women.
