Bioidentical Hormone Treatments Available Online
Dr. Eric S. Gerken
Dr. Eric S. Gerken, based in Fort Myers, recently began providing bioidentical hormone treatment through his website. A longtime member of the American Board of Anti-Aging and Restorative Medicine (ABAARM) and a recent graduate of the Institute for Functional Medicine, Gerken works with Laurie Jean Krause, who specializes in anti-aging medical aesthetics. After potential clients complete a free online survey, Gerken contacts them with results and recommends steps that may include a meeting at a local practice with which he is affiliated.
“Bioidentical hormones are one of the closest therapies we know of that approach the Fountain of Youth,” says Gerken. “As we age, we produce less and less hormones, and simple supplementation is safe, easy and inexpensive.”
According to ABAARM, after menopause or andropause, we lose 1.5 to 2 percent of our skin thickness each year. In 25 years, up to 50 percent of our skin thickness and collagen is lost. With supplementation, that number can be reduced to 0.15 to 0.2 percent.
