Dr. Terese Harris is a Board Certified Gynecologist specializing in Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and Cosmetic Gynecology, and she is also Board Certified with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The combination of her advanced education leaves her uniquely qualified to help her patients attain optimal health naturally and to feel and look youthful.
Dr. Harris has incorporated Bio-identical Hormones into her practice for the last 15 years, and she has successfully used Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy to help restore and balance her patient’s lives. From the moment a patient steps into the office, they are pampered with comfort and caring. The patients’ optimal health is the ultimate goal. Whether this involves improving the patients’ energy, nutrition, fitness, or helping shape the body to its original comfort level, Dr. Harris’ focus is on both the physical look and internal physiology.
As aging occurs, the natural endogenous hormone levels decline. Environmental toxins, drug interactions, and diet may also lower hormones. Hormones are necessary for the body to work properly, and they work as little messengers to control the function of every cell in the body. Bio-identical Hormones are identical to the molecular structure of the hormones made in the body. Upon receiving Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, each patient is then monitored to achieve perfect hormonal balance. Dr. Harris replaces only what a patient is missing, thus supporting the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology guidance to treat with the lowest effective dose for the shortest time.
While aging is inevitable, it is possible to live an ideal life instead of just living “within normal limits”. This is the basis for anti-aging Medicine. It is the evaluation of Nutrients, Hormone Levels, Toxicity, and other biomarkers of aging to facilitate perfect mind and body balance and to optimize cellular functions to give patients the energy and stamina of their youth. Anti-Aging medicine involves extending the lifespan by increasing health.
Dr. Harris is able to analyze the blood, saliva, or urine for hormonal levels, biochemical pathways and oxidative damage, which may show the levels of DNA damage and genetic testing. Dr. Harris can even measure telomeres, which are parts of the genes to see how fast a person is presently aging. With all this information, Dr. Harris can then utilize regenerative technologies to turn on or off gene expressions, replete lost proteins, amino acids, nutrients, detoxify the body, and replace lost hormones with natural Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement so that you may optimize its function and live with full health to over 100 years.
Bio-identical hormones are most commonly ordered through a reputable compounding Pharmacy. Large drug companies do make a variety of bio-identical hormones, yet they come in standard dosing. Compounding pharmacies are critical partners in treating patients as individuals and providing customized, individualized care.
This is not alternative Medicine, and Dr. Harris only utilizes evidence-based Anti-Aging Medicine, which means all medicine supplements must be backed by excellent science in order to provide individualized integrative care. Common patient comments are “I have never met a doctor like Dr. Harris,” “Does she spend this much time with everyone?”, and “Finally, a doctor that cares and actually hears me!” Dr. Harris has a woman’s sense of artistic beauty with the qualified eye of a surgeon.
