When I opened my Atlanta-based practice, I set out to help patients achieve optimal health and wellness at all ages — and even to slow or reverse the symptoms of aging. My patients come to me seeking advice and help with a variety of issues, from healthy aging, bioidentical hormone replacement, menopause and andropause to weight loss and expert nutritional testing and guidance to diagnosis and treatment of chronic illness, detoxification, and more. I strive to help my patients achieve these goals.
A Preventive Practice
The medical system in widespread use today is not designed to create wellness or to effectively prevent disease. Instead, it is designed to diagnose and treat the symptoms of disease in its final or acute stage. However, preventing disease is much easier — and healthier —than curing it. It’s not enough to diagnose disease in its early stages when it can be more easily reversed — you need to prevent it before any damage occurs.
Using the techniques of functional medicine, I strive to optimize the functions of your body systems. While I do use traditional drugs when necessary, my primary focus lies in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and individualized fitness and nutrition plans. When you become a patient, you will learn in detail exactly what, how, how much, and when to eat in order to achieve your best health. I also employ the targeted use of nutritional supplements and scientifically tested natural medicines to achieve health objectives that are not possible with standard pharmaceuticals.
How It Benefits You
There is a great beauty in my approach to medicine: I can help make everyone healthier, regardless of their condition. Some will be cured and everyone will have an improvement in their health and a better understanding of their illness and how their lifestyle impacts it.
As the medical director of BodyLogicMD of Atlanta, I dedicate my practice to anti-aging medicine, and customized nutrition and fitness programs, which help women and men resolve the symptoms of hormone imbalance, including weight gain, sexual dysfunction, declining energy levels and stress, brought on by menopause and andropause, thyroid disorders and adrenal fatigue.
