Hormone Replacement - Men & Women

image

As we age, hormone production in both men and women slowly and steadily declines. These hormones include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid hormones, growth hormone, melatonin, DHEA, brain hormones, and the list goes on. While most people understand the concept of menopause in women, men also experience a hormonal decline known as andropause, that also generally presents with symptoms in the mid 40's to 50's.

Many of the symptoms that occur include:

Women

  • hot flashes

  • concentration loss
  • anxiety/depression
  • weight gain
  • irritability
  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • decreased sex drive
  • urine loss
  • muscle weakness

Men

  • decreased confidence
  • memory loss

What Are Bio-Identical Hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are becoming widely accepted among men and women who want relief from the symptoms of declining hormones. The body does not know the difference between the hormones it produces and bio-identical hormones, which are identical in molecular structure to the hormones made in the body. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, have extra molecules which are not recognized by the body. They are not capable of being metabolized by our body's enzymes and have been shown to remain in our bodies for long periods of time as toxins and carcinogens.

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.
