December 18, 2009 (Newswire.com) - Cincinnati, Ohio - November, 2009 - Baby Boomers don't take aging lightly, so the opening of a new bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) practice by anti-aging expert Dr. Julie Kissel is just the ticket for Cincinnati's over-30 crowd. Dr. Kissel is a member of BodyLogicMD, the nation's largest network of highly trained physicians specializing in bioidentical hormones. She leads the network's third Ohio-based bioidentical hormone practice to meet the growing demand of both women and men seeking to overcome age-related health challenges brought on by hormonal imbalance.
"Traditional medicine is not meeting the needs of my 'typically aging' patients," says Dr. Kissel. "The number of men and women who come to me complaining of the symptoms of menopause and andropause (the male menopause), such as weight gain, fatigue, depression, low libido, irritability, hot flashes, and night sweats, has increased dramatically. These are people who are unwilling to accept a diagnosis of aging treated with prescription drugs to mask their symptoms. I am able to work closely with each patient to pinpoint the underlying cause of his or her symptoms, which more often than not is related to hormonal imbalance. This is good news because it is not only treatable, but can also be reversible."
Dr. Kissel specializes in integrative and wellness medicine, correcting hormonal imbalances in women and men by using BHRT, integrated with customized nutrition and fitness programs. She made the decision to partner with BodyLogicMD to make a greater, more positive impact on her patients' health and well-being. With comprehensive preventive care, Dr. Kissel is helping the baby-boomers of America look and feel better than they have in years!
