As the scientific understanding of hormones has evolved, hormone therapy has emerged to address many types of hormonal imbalances that initiate the physiological cascade of aging and compromised physiological, psychological and cognitive functioning. Because many hormones function as neuroactive regulators in the brain and nervous system, hormonal optimization can play a key role in mood and cognitive health.

  • Female hormones: Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Pregnenolone, Oxytocin
  • Male hormones: Testosterone, DHEA, Pregnenolone, Oxytocin, Testosterone Stimulators
  • Thyroid hormones (T4, T3)

The efficacy and safety of hormone therapy depends on the type of substance used, appropriate dosage, timing, frequency and route of administration. Dr. Parker is board-certified in anti-aging and regenerative medicine with an emphasis on hormonorestorative therapies. This requires advanced training and written examinations in hormone methodologies that refine the clinical understanding of the safest and most effective practices based on contemporary updates from scientific literature and from an international panel of medical experts.

In addition, Dr. Parker pursued a two-year, post-doctoral fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine in order to provide contemporary healthcare that makes dynamic use of scientific advancements in human longevity, neuroplasticity, neurogenesis, mood, cognition and the prevention and treatment of age-related health decline.
