BOCA RATON, Fla.--(bioidentical hormones don’t seem to work for everyone.)--On Tuesday, Ricki Lake turned the discussion to bioidentical hormone therapy and why, although it is the best medicine for anti-aging, it only works with the right physician. “If you go to a doctor who doesn’t understand what [hormone] replacement is, it’s like going to a plumber for a heart bypass,” was one comment highlighted in the discussion, when Ricki asked why

BodyLogicMD understands that it isn’t enough to just have doctors who offer bioidentical hormones. That is why it is a requirement that every physician within the network be either a board-certified M.D. or D.O., and specialize in bioidentical hormone therapy and functional medicine, as well as maintain continuing education in this evolutionary field. In fact every physician of the BodyLogicMD network must meet some very specific criteria:
- Board Certified or Board Eligible in an AMA specialty
- Complete the Fellowship for Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine (approximately 200 hours of additional training)
- Continuing medical education in the area of anti-aging and functional medicine of no less than 150 credits accrued over a three-year period
- Active member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M)
- Pass both oral and written board of the American Board of Anti-Aging Physicians within 1 year of opening their practice
Dr. Jennifer Landa, Chief Medical Officer of BodyLogicMD and a former OB/GYN, says, “I transitioned from traditional medicine to BodyLogicMD because I wanted to make a wholehearted difference in the lives of my patients. I pursued extensive training with the American Academy of Anti-Aging, and, after more than five years with BodyLogicMD, I see the difference bioidentical hormone therapy can make in someone’s life. But it’s not just the therapy - it’s the whole treatment plan. My training taught me that hormone therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach to medicine. Different doses, different diets and different treatment plans are required for each patient. This isn’t about averages and ranges of 'normal,' it’s about each individual patient.”
Experience the difference a highly-trained physician of the BodyLogicMD network can make in your life. It’s not about just living longer - it’s about living better, longer with the best medicine from the best doctors.
