BodyLogicMD dedicates an entire library of literature to help provide you with the information you need to know about bioidentical hormone therapy and how hormones work in your body.

ageless“Ageless: The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones”
After forever changing the face of menopause in her revolutionary book, “The Sexy Years”, Suzanne Somers, perhaps one of the foremost advocates of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), continues her extensive research into the causes and prevention of hormonal imbalance with 16 leading experts on BHRT in her 2006 release, “Ageless: The Naked Truth about Bioidentical Hormones.” Somers offers a medically validated, multi-faceted approach to wellness, incorporating fitness, nutrition, stress reduction and bioidentical hormones when necessary to prevent age-related diseases and symptoms of hormonal imbalance.


book“Hormone Harmony: How to Balance Insulin, Thyroid, Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone to Live Your Best Life”
BodyLogicMD Chief Medical Officer Dr. Alicia Stanton has just recently announced the highly anticipated release of her debut book, “Hormone Harmony: How to Balance Insulin, Thyroid, Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone to Live Your Best Life.” Because of recent research and the controversy that surrounds the risks of hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women, hormone imbalance has become a hot topic, but few straightforward, comprehensive guides have been written on the issue. Hormone Harmony fills that gap with an in-depth look at how hormones are deeply connected to nutrition, lifestyle, and supplements. Most importantly, it provides a road map for women seeking to create hormone balance, providing a checklist of symptoms for identifying imbalances.

breakthrough“Breakthrough: Eight Steps to Wellness”
In “Breakthrough: Eight Steps to Wellness,” Suzanne Somers and her team of expert anti-aging physicians advises the use of what she calls “breakthrough medicine”—All natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy: “to remain youthful, healthy and energetic.” She outlines how hormone imbalances in our bodies cause conditions such as menopause, andropause and even cancers. Somers also attributes symptoms such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, lack of sex drive, and sleepless nights to hormonal imbalance as well. The natural process of aging causes some of these hormone imbalances, but others are most certainly linked to lifestyle, environmental effects and dietary habits – Somers’ book gives a step by step guide on what you can do to avoid the pitfalls.

The book includes a hormone balance test to determine which symptom group you’re in, up-to-date information about the symptoms and causes of hormone imbalances, a monthly calendar to track symptoms, and guidance on timing and dosage for yourself.
