Aug. 20, 2010 - PRLog -- Boca Raton, FL, According the Senate Committee on Health, American’s spend a staggering $2.3 trillion annually on health care and 95 percent of every health care dollar is spent on treating illnesses and conditions after they occur. “We can significantly reduce disease spending if we focus on prevention,” says Jennifer Landa M.D., bioidentical hormone expert and Chief Medical Officer of BodyLogicMD.

BodyLogicMD is America’s largest network of highly trained physicians who have completed hundreds of hours of advanced training specifically in preventive and functional medicine. BodyLogicMD medically supervised programs are focused on lifestyle changes; including diet, nutritional supplements supported by medical science, fitness, stress reduction and the use of bioidentical hormones .

Every BodyLogicMD physician dedicates their practice to helping women and men manage the aging process – as well as the negative effects of poor diet, lack of exercise, environmental toxins and hormone imbalance – through prevention.

“It is important that we recognize the significant role that preventive medicine plays in optimizing health – no matter what our age,” says Dr. Landa. “Of course we need the skill and training to diagnose disease and treat it with the most up-to-date methods available. But now that we know the best practices for the treatment of disease, as well as the factors that contribute to the growth of disease, it makes even more sense to put the focus on prevention and use our knowledge to improve the lives of our patients.”

This approach, while closely tied with the new Health Reform, is also directly in line with the building trend toward age management through wellness. Preventive medicine makes the most not only of the advanced screening options for the early detection of disease, but also draws upon a host of innovative and practical measures.

“Functional medicine looks at the human being as a whole, including all the factors that may affect a person and cause disease,” adds Dr. Landa. “It allows us to treat patients in a more holistic way, taking into account how the glands are working and how they may affect the nervous and immune systems, something that is not typical in the traditional practice of medicine. This is they type of medicine most of us dreamed of practicing when we went to medical school.”
