It’s difficult to prevent disease from a reactive standpoint. Many of the health challenges affecting women and men today cannot be resolved by simply treating the patient’s symptoms. We need to take a more proactive approach to wellness, by investigating the underlying causes of these health challenges and factor in how lifestyle choices impact our overall health. Symptoms of hormonal imbalance that many women and men face as they get older are well within the realm of prevention.

The Expert BodyLogicMD Physicians from the Bioidentical Hormones Experts Blog come from a variety of different backgrounds and clinical fields, including psychiatry, neurology, anesthesiology, gynecology, and osteopathic medicine. However, they all share one common interest; a passion to help patients achieve and optimal overall quality of health, using preventive techniques and integrative therapies and by treating the body as a whole.

The bioidentical hormone doctors at BodyLogicMD, the nation’s largest network of highly trained physicians specializing in bioidentical hormones, fitness and nutrition, are gearing up for the upcoming Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Workshop (BHRTW) taking place in Los Angeles. California, from May 14th-16th. Presented by The Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and the Bio-Identical Hormone Society, the thee-day workshop will be held in conjunction with Modules IV and VI of the Fellowship in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and will feature a long list of industry leaders, with keynote speakers including Mark Gordon, M.D., Jonathan Wright, M.D., Founder of the California HealthSpan Institute Ron Rothenberg, M.D., FACEP, and Fellowship Director Pamela Smith M.D.

According to recent findings from the study known as the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), women who use antidepressants to treat depression have a higher risk of stroke and heart attack.

The debate over the safety and efficacy of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has been a perpetual tug-of-war between traditional and alternative medicine. We can all agree that there is a middle ground in the bioidentical hormone debate. Suzanne Somers is on one side of the debate, while others such as Julie Deardorff of the Chicago Tribune take a much different stand on the issue. So what’s it going to take to bridge the divide between mainstream and preventive practices?
