Dallas, TX, March 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- BodyLogicMD is pleased to announce the addition of Dallas bioidentical hormones expert, Dr. Phyllis Okereke
, who will join fellow BodyLogicMD physician Dr. Lisa Gorn at BodyLogicMD of Dallas. Dr. Okereke practices integrative and preventative medicine, helping patients balance hormones naturally, using a combination of customized nutrition and fitness regimens, pharmaceutical grade supplementation and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
At BodyLogicMD, physicians help women and men prevent disease and improve their overall health by taking a whole body approach to medicine. This unique approach to medicine focuses primarily on the underlying root causes of health problems, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
“Many of the changes women and men face as they age are the result of a combination of lifestyle and environmental factors,” shares Dr. Okereke. “I help my patients address each aspect of their overall health, through lifestyle intervention, nutritional guidance and natural hormone replacement, so they can live the best possible life.”
Using a multi-faceted approach to wellness, Dr. Okereke helps women and men overcome symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, depression, low libido, mood swings and irritability. In addition to helping patients overcome hormonal issues, Dr. Okereke also helps patients reduce their risk of a variety of age-related health challenges, such as osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
“Dr. Okereke will undoubtedly be an invaluable asset to our team here at BodyLogicMD,” shares Dr. Gorn. “Our collaboration and shared knowledge enables us to help more patients find relief from symptoms of hormonal imbalance to improve their overall quality of life.”
