Functional Medicine and Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
The current system of medicine tends to be oriented toward acute care, which is the diagnosis and treatment of an illness that is short-lived and sudden. In these cases, physicians treat the immediate problem with drugs or surgery. Unfortunately, acute care medicine does not address the increasing need for treatments of complex, chronic conditions that occur as you age and put stress on your bodies.
Doctors that practice functional medicine are trained to assess the underlying cause of disease instead of only treating one symptom at a time, as in acute care medicine. In the functional medicine model, doctors will seek out the source of your health imbalance. Dr. Eric Nager will take your lifestyle, diet, genetics, environment and stress levels into account when assessing your health. This holistic approach helps the doctor identify underlying health conditions that may be causing multiple symptoms. Using functional medicine in combination with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can result in some of the following benefits:
- Benefits of Natural Hormone Therapy for Men and Women
- Better Look And Feel Of Hair And Skin

- Decreased Risk Of Alzheimer’s Disease, Heart Attack And Stroke

By getting to know and understand the underlying causes and contributing factors of your health concerns Dr. Eric Nager is able to provide the most effective Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy protocol for each patient.
What to Expect: Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) treats hormone deficiencies by using only hormones that are identical to the hormones found in your body. The most common hormones replaced are estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and thyroid hormones. Baltimore Bioidentical Hormones Expert, Eric Nager, M.D. will assess whether you would do best on only one of these hormones or with a combination of them.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy differs from traditional hormone replacement therapy in its use of natural hormones. Synthetic, man-made hormones used in traditional hormone replacement do not match the chemical structure of the hormones produced by your body and not used in natural, bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Nager offers bioidentical hormones as oral hormone supplements, transdermal hormone patches or creams, hormone injections, or implanted hormone pellets. In addition to offering customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Dr. Nager offers the following services to address your health needs at all levels:
