Nava Health and Vitality Center – Douglas Lord, M.D.

Douglas Lord, M.D. at Nava Health & Vitality Center in Columbia Maryland uses Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to help men and women overcome the signs and symptoms of aging and hormonal imbalances. Because Bioidentical Hormones are identical in chemical and molecular function to the hormones produced in the human body, they can be more easily metabolized in the body. By addressing overall wellness, rather than isolated problems, Dr. Lord can identify potential triggers and the underlying causes of unpleasant symptoms. The body functions as a system, and each part, no matter how small, has the power to affect the body’s systems. Dr. Lord feels that it is his job to fix the problem, not merely to relieve the symptoms or disguise them. This shift in perspective from that of a traditional wellness approaches allows for a more thorough course of treatment and results that are long lasting. Dr. Lord has helped countless men and women to improve their health and overcome the challenges associated with hormone decline.
