International Hormone Society (IHS)
The Society has two major goals. One is to make the public aware of the importance and availability of doctors specializing in the medical science of hormone deficiencies or excesses and in the medicine of aging. The second goal is to work within the medical community to bring the "medicine of aging" to a more prominent level of utilization in the various medical specialties.
We are a reliable source of accurate information. Scam artists and charlatans have invaded aging medicine. It is very difficult for the non-medically trained public to sort out the fact from the fiction. This society and this web site will never sell products or attempt to profit from the disease or heart ache of people. We are all about information and working to bring hormone balance to the world.
