Our skilled physicians want you to know: -What’s really going on with women’s hormones in their 40s, and how women really can turn back the clock to look and feel amazing -The connection between diet and hormone health that your OB-GYN never told you about -How anti-depressants are rampantly overprescribed for many women in their 40s, and questions you should ask your doctor to make sure the right root causes are being addressed -How women in their 40s can – and should be – enjoying the greatest sexual and physical fitness of their lives.

As a consumer/patient (not as a physician), one of my first big realizations as I went through my own personal transformation was the tremendous differences there are in doctors. In the quality of care and education that they possess. That was the major mantra in forming BodyLogicMD – working with the most highly trained, AMA board certified physicians. This training requires our physicians to devote several hundreds of hours in additional training (all at their expense which is extensive) to understand and apply the most effective methods of treating the symptoms associated with menopause and andropause. To help their patients feel better. We have thousands of patients that would agree. As well, President Obama will address this very same topic on Monday.

If your depression began recently, chances are good that it has a hormonal basis. Many women (men have these problems too!) are placed on antidepressant medications for symptoms of depression that are really due to hormonal decline and imbalance.

You should see someone and have your hormones checked.

"When Oprah began her “national conversation on Bioidentical Hormones” – an atomic bomb went off," shared Patrick Savage, MBA, Economist, and President of BodyLogicMD. He continued to say "she changed our industry and it will never be the same. We continue to seek more highly trained and qualified physicians to join our national network in order to continue to provide the same level of care our patients have come to expect from us."

Andropause is the male equivalent to menopause and is characterized by the decline of hormone levels. With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and a customized program including fitness and nutrition, men can find relief for the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, including erectile dysfunction, fatigue, depression, hair losss, muscle loss, night sweats, and urinary problems.
