About Jeffrey Kreher, MD
Jeffrey Kreher, MD practices anti-aging and preventive medicine at BodyLogicMD of Boston. Here, he helps men and women suffering from conditions such as menopause, andropause, thyroid disorders, adrenal fatigue, and other hormonal imbalances achieve a higher quality of life. Dr. Kreher uses individual, customized wellness programs that often include natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), pharmaceutical-grade supplements, stress reduction techniques, and nutrition and fitness regimens to help his patients improve mental clarity, enhance sexual function, restore energy and vitality, and ultimately regain their zest for life.
Dr. Kreher’s career path started at the US Air Force Academy, where he was training to achieve his dream of being a test pilot and astronaut. After sustaining a severe neck injury that required surgery, he had to shift gears and focus on a new path. That is when the medical field called to him.
After completing his education at the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Medicine and his residency at Indiana University (where he was also Chief Resident), Dr. Kreher spent years practicing Internal Medicine and Pediatrics before being drawn to integrative and preventative medicine. Before knowing that there was a specific medical discipline dedicated to preventing ailments and illnesses rather than just treating them after the fact, he started to focus on Primary Care Sports Medicine. This allowed Dr. Kreher the opportunity to educate his patients on aspects of lifestyle management like stress relief, healthy sleep, and nutrition. He had always prided himself on practicing the “Medicine of WHY” and trying to get to the root of a problem instead of just reacting to it, so he was essentially practicing functional medicine without even knowing it.
Yet, it wasn’t just the practicality of integrative medicine that allured Dr. Kreher; he also recognized that the individual-based approach of preventative health care lent to more personalized treatment plans for each patient. Instead of merely treating a list of symptoms, he wanted to spend more time with each patient to figure out what kind of solutions would work best for them. After being drawn away from a small family-oriented practice to work at the esteemed Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Kreher found himself drawn back to the more personalized side of health care. That is when he discovered the preventative health care community and decided to train extensively in integrative medicine.
In addition to being an instructor at Harvard Medical School and practicing Sports Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Kreher is an active member of the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM).
