I can say quite simply has changed my quality of life. Since I’ve been his patient I have lost 80 lbs, and have been involved in HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy). I am a 47 year old male and Ifeel like I’m 30 years old again. I have never met a more comprehensive physician. I have recommended my friends to BodyLogicMD, and would encourage anyone who wants a better quality of life to [see] Dr. Eric Honing.
A very grateful 47 year old,
I was on antidepressants, anti-anxiety medication and sleeping pills. I was 75lbs overweight, easily distracted, forgetful and unhappy. My Primary Care Physician told me my hormone levels were “within” the normal range. I surrendered in the knowledge of this being how I was to live out the remainder of my life. Then I saw Dr. Eric Honing. He sets a much higher standard for an individual’s therapeutic hormone levels and health.
Thanks to his Hormone Replacement Therapy I no longer need to take antidepressants, anti-anxiety meds or sleeping pills. I am happy, focused, look better and have more energy than I have in 20 years. I even lost 80lbs. I have been able to “reinvent” myself. I am excited for what my future holds and it’s all thanks to Dr. Honing at BodyLogicMD. He has changed my life exponentially and I encourage everyone to seek his help.
A Very Thankful Patient,
In 2008 I sought Dr. Honing’s help with a variety of health concerns.
I was gaining weight, mostly in my core as belly fat. I was unable to fall asleep or stay asleep. I had night sweats and daytime adrenal flashes. My skin was dry, my nails brittle and I was losing hair and I had very low energy; I was tired all the time. Most troubling to me however, was that after 34 years of marriage to my husband who is my best friend I had little to no interest in intimacy. At age 58 I felt I was too young to feel this old!
After getting back my test results I was relieved to hear there were treatment options to fix my brokenness. I didn’t have to accept this state of health as my “new normal.”
Within the first weeks of treatment I saw results. Over the years there have been small adjustments to my treatment plan as I “listen” to my body and Dr. Honing listens to me.
Recently I celebrated my 66th birthday and told one of my grandchildren “I’m just getting old-er, Nana’s not old.” I love my real new normal.
I have been your patient since 2009. When I came to you my condition was mostly day-time fatigue, low libido, unable to sleep through the night, and muscle and joint pain.
At that time you began a regiment of testosterone pellets for me which has helped my day-time fatigue so that now I don’t feel like I need a nap everyday at noon. Also the low libido has improved significantly. I would say that the testosterone has helped level out my day so that there are fewer ups and downs emotionally. You also prescribed Aswagandha and DHEA at that time to help with balancing mood and emotions. The other ailments (sleep, muscle and joint pain) are more related to arthritis. But some improvement has been achieved through my testosterone treatments simply because I feel better overall.
Thanks for being my friend as well as my doctor.

My name is Marty and I am currently 56 years old but I feel more like “30”. I would like to share my experience regarding HRT (hormone replacement therapy).
December 8, 2011 was the turning point in my life, I say this because it was the day I began a new journey in my life. I actually started this journey with my wife when she was diagnosed with a very large ovarian tumor. Several weeks after her surgery, my wife started experiencing night sweats, mood swing, low energy, and feeling of overall unrest. I went to every appointment with her trying to find that one doctor who could help improve her symptoms, health, and wellbeing. She must have gone through a half a dozen doctors who pretty much came with the same “treatment plan” but offered no hope to actually improve my wife’s health.
My wife found Dr. Honing through a website and she instantly made an appointment for a consultation. My wife discovered that he was offering a way to truly replace what was surgically taken or through the aging process in the form of “bioidentical hormone” not just treating symptoms. After three years of witnessing this phenomenon of change in my wife’s overall health I was astonished and grateful for Dr. Honing; he was able to give me my wife back. So, here is where my journey begins to a path of wellbeing and overall health for myself.
I am your typical “guy” but on top of that a big macho firefighter who at an early age started working out not only for my health but it enabled me to do my job more efficiently. But, eventually age caught up with me and gradually I started to slow down a bit and when I hit the age of 52, I came to a standstill. I literally had no motivation to go to the gym and when I did I just couldn’t find that motivation to stay. I was lethargic and had no energy to work out and would literally come home from the fire station and pass out on the couch. I had no outside interest except to get up and go to work. After one of my wife’s appointments with Dr. Honing she confronted me with the suggestion of having labs done and setting up a consult with him. I thought what could it hurt and at the same time I could appease my wife.
The day of my appointment, we were scheduled to see Dr. Honing at the same time, my wife went first, I watched as Dr. Honing slide a tray over and implanted her pellets, and then it was my turn. Dr. Honing went over my lab results explaining what was good and what was not so good. He went over my cholesterol, triglycerides, PSA, but what caught my attention is when he read my testosterone level. So, I took in the information and started to leave when he pulled over a second tray. I asked who the tray was for and he and my wife at the same time replied it was for “ME”, that day changed my life. I have been a patient of Dr. Honing’s now for almost four years. I was weighing 254 pounds with 28% body fat and in one year’s time on the pellet based HRT, I lost 30 pounds and body fat melted from a 28% to 22%. I was back in the gym gaining back muscle lost 4 inches on my waistline I’ve regained my stamina. But, little did I know, that at age 56, I would feel like I did when I was in my 30’s.
I often share my experience with anyone who is willing to listen about what Dr. Honing did for me. I have referred several men in my profession and others to Dr. Honing and they too are experiencing a more fulfilled life because of him. My wife and I are extremely grateful and blessed to have Dr. Honing in our lives.

My name is Cari and I am currently 50 years “young”. I would like to share my experience regarding going from a complete hysterectomy to receiving HRT (hormone replacement therapy).
Shortly after my 42nd birthday, I started to experience problems with one of my ovaries which after several months of ultrasounds/doctor visits ended up being diagnosed with a very large ovarian tumor. After a consult with an OB specialist, it was determined that I needed to have a complete hysterectomy. At this time, I had already had three children and was not planning on having more so I agreed that this would be the best method of treatment for me but I had a lot of questions and concerns about what would happen once all of my female parts were removed. I was both scared and confused not knowing what this would mean going forward for me.
Once the surgery was complete and the benign tumor was removed, I was told that I had just experienced “surgical menopause”. I didn’t have a clue what that even meant until several weeks later when I started experiencing the night sweats, mood swing, low energy, feeling of overall unrest. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. Later that week I went for my follow up visit with my OB surgeon and he handed me a prescription for an Estrogen pill. After having done some research of my own, I learned that this “standard” method of treatment was not something I was interested in. I discovered that the Estrogen pill was derived from a pregnant horse’s urine. Not acceptable.
So, there began my journey to find a doctor who could help me feel like myself again while also being able to offer a treatment plan not only to “treat” my symptoms but hopefully to improve my overall health and wellness.
I sifted through 5 or 6 doctors who claimed they all were specialist in the field of HRT but quickly learned that they all would offer the exact same method of “treatment”. Each doctor had offered me a way to treat or “manage” my symptoms but none had offered me any hope that I could actually improve my health after having a hysterectomy. So, I continued to search for a doctor that would be able to truly help me.
I found Dr. Eric Honing through a website and instantly saw something about him and his practice that made me aware that he was not like the other doctors that I had come across. He was offering his patients a way to really replace what was surgically taken in the form of “bioidentical hormone” instead of just treating the symptoms.
I continued to read about Dr. Honing for several weeks and finally decided to make my appointment with him and see what he had to offer me that was different than the rest. After my initial consultation with him, I knew that I had finally come to the right place and had finally found a doctor who could really help me get back to being ME. I left my first visit with him feeling very hopeful and a little teary eyed. What a relief.
I have been a patient of Dr. Honing’s now for almost seven years. I started out with cream based HRT which was good but still lacking a little something for me. I then went to receiving pellet based HRT which has literally changed my life. I have lost 36 plus pounds and have gone from 32% body fat to 18% body fat. Not only that, but I have gotten back my stamina, my energy level is amazing, and I have been an amateur body builder for almost 3 years now. Little did I know, that at age 50, I would feel and look better than I did when I was in my 20’s. Wow!
I never pass up the opportunity to share my experience and what Dr. Honing has done for me with anyone who is willing to listen. People stop me all of the time and ask what I’m doing and I tell them. I’m going to Dr. Eric Honing, he cares about his patients, he listens when you speak, and he is always trying to do better at each appointment than he did the time before.
Oh, I need to mention here that I also encouraged my husband who just turned 56 to seek therapy with Dr. Honing. Yes, he is a typical guy; he did not think he needed to go to a doctor. However, once he received his blood tests result from Dr. Honing and realized his hormone levels had depleted over the years he was quickly on board with receiving HRT for himself.
In closing, I started out with a not so fun situation of having to have a hysterectomy but ended up with one of the biggest blessings in mine and my husband’s lives by having the good fortune of finding Dr. Honing and being his patient. He truly has changed both of our lives for the better!
Five years ago I was dealing with post-menopausal symptoms by taking synthetic estrogens by mouth. It was not an ideal solution to the hot flashes and night sweats that had disrupted my life for several years. Besides still having some symptoms, I thought this was the best I could do. But I worried about the effect on my body long term. I did not know of an alternative therapy in my area and was resigned to doing what I was doing as long as it sort of worked. Coincidentally, I learned there was an employment opportunity in Dr. Honing’s office. Once I was working there I was very curious about the treatment he offered to patients who were feeling much better after beginning his regimens tailored to their individual needs. I decided to try it for myself. I am so glad I did! I feel so much like my pre-menopausal self again! Through testing we even discovered that I had some thyroid issues; treating those brought more relief! I am a believer in bioidentical hormone therapy and Dr. Honing’s considerable skills as a practitioner.
You were the best doctor I have ever had.
Thank you from the depths of my heart <3 for helping me to come up out of what was constant torture in my body for so long! I am deeply touched at your compassion in helping me. So very thankful you are here for us who need your help in a big way!
Eric and his team are awesome! Sooooo great to have doc who understands the aging challenges of us fellas! Not that I’m aged, or old, or even getting old… BUT IF I WERE…. it would be GREAT to get help with my man-stuff 😉
