Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

As we age, hormone production in both men and women decline.  These hormones include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid hormones, growth hormone, melatonin, DHEA, brain hormones, and other hormones not listed here.

While most people understand the concept of menopause in women, men also experience a hormonal decline known as andropause which can create symptoms beginning in the mid to late 40's.

 Symptoms may include:

Women

  • hot flashes and night sweats 
  • weight gain

  • loss of energy
  • insomnia
  • mood swings
  • irritability
  • vaginal dryness
  • wrinkles 
  • memory loss
  • anxiety/depression
  • irritability
  • decreased muscle mass 

Men

  • decreased sex drive 
  • erectile dysfunction
  • decreased muscle mass 
  • decreased confidence 
  • irritability 
  • depression and anxiety

What Are Bio-Identical Hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are becoming widely accepted among men and women who want relief from the symtoms of declining hormones. There is no difference between the hormones your body produces and bio-identical hormones, they are identical. Synthetic hormones on the other hand are not natural to the human body and are therefore not capable of being metabolized by our body's enzymes which creates toxicity. Unatural synthetic hormones have been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer along with blood clots in the legs, pulmonary emboli, heart attack and stroke. Natural bio-idenetical hormones given correctly represent a safe alternative to synthetic hormones 

What Are the Benefits?

Bio-identical hormone replacement significantly reduces symptoms associated with hormonal decline. In addition to symptom relief, Bio-identical hormones have also been shown to protect your brain, heart, vessels, bones, skin, hair follicles and muscles. Many patients who start on bio-identical hormones usually feel emotionally and physically better within two weeks.
