The society aims to make the public aware of the importance and availability of doctors specializing in the medical science of hormone deficiencies or excesses and in the medicine of aging. The second goal is to work within the medical community to bring the “medicine of aging” to a more prominent level of utilization in the various medical specialties.
- Dr Sarah Myhill
Dr Myhill, Secretary of the British Society for Ecological Medicine, a medical organisation which has its own scientific journal and bi-annual scientific meetings at the Royal College of General Practitioners, was hounded by the General Medical Council in UK over her approach to medicine for years but eventually won.
Her website contains useful information on many conditions including thyroid issues. In particular see Thyroid – the correct prescribing of thyroid hormones
- Professional Compounding Centers of America
A useful introduction to compounded hormone replacement therapy. It makes the point – again – that each woman’s body is different and has its own unique needs, but commercially manufactured products tend to be “one-size-fits-all,” and do not always account for the differences between individuals. The same applies to men, not all men are the same – different men need different amounts of testosterone to help address their individual symptoms. The value of hormone replacement through pharmacy compounding is its ability to fit your unique body and hormone levels, resulting in better accuracy and a healthier balance.
- Dr Bill Reeder
This New Zealand doctor’s website contains useful and interesting information on various health issues. He defines his type of practice as “Integrative Medcine”, about which he states:
Biomedical Medicine, Integrative Medicine therefore should ‘integrate’ with mainstream pharmaceutical treatment. Some prefer to use natural based therapies as first line prevention or treatment. Certain medical disorders however are without doubt better managed with drug treatments as prime treatment.
