About My Practice
I dedicate my practice, BodyLogicMD of Greenville, to a single overarching goal: helping patients achieve optimal health and wellness at all ages while feeling better than they have in years. I advise and help my patients with such issues as healthy aging, bioidentical hormone replacement, menopause, andropause, weight loss, expert nutritional testing and guidance, diagnosis and treatment of chronic illness, detoxification, and more.
A Preventive Approach
I use the techniques of functional medicine to optimize the functions of the body systems, striving not only to diagnose disease in its early stages when it can be more easily reversed, but to prevent it before any damage occurs. Our current medical system, on the other hand, is designed to diagnose and treat the symptoms of disease when it is in its final or acute stage. It is not designed to create wellness or to effectively prevent disease.
I focus on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and individualized fitness and nutrition plans, and also employ the targeted use of nutritional supplements and scientifically tested natural medicines to achieve health objectives that are not possible with standard pharmaceuticals. 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.
How My Practice Works
The technology and medical science of the 21st century allows me to optimize wellness and find the roots of disease, particularly the chronic conditions that are only treated symptomatically by mainstream medicine. At BodyLogicMD of Greenville, we do not focus on symptoms so much as finding the root causes of illness and preventing or reversing them. We strive to prevent damage before it occurs and to repair the damage that may have already been done. We take an individual approach to each patient.
I practice integrative and functional medicine and dedicate my practice to helping women and men find relief from hormonal imbalances such as menopause, andropause (the male menopause), adrenal fatigue and thyroid disorders, using a three-tiered approach to wellness, combining customized nutrition and fitness regimens with bioidentical hormone therapy. I believe that proper diet, regular exercise and balanced hormones are the cornerstones of longevity.
I made the decision to transition into anti-aging and preventive medicine because I wanted the opportunity to spend more time with each patient in order to address their health and wellness needs from a preemptive perspective. As a bioidentical hormones expert, I specialize in treating the underlying causes of symptoms oftentimes associated with aging, such as hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, weight gain, fatigue, mood swings and irritability.
