What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Starting from age 27 to 28, the hormones of both men and women begin to steadily decline and continue to decline as we age. However, these drops in hormones generally need an average of 5 to 15 years before an accumulative loss is marked enough for you to realize that you’re not who you once were. A comprehensive lab (blood) work-up is first analyzed to reveal deficiencies in hormones that rob you of your energy, strength, vitality and health.
Typical andropausal symptoms in men due to testosterone deficiency may include loss of drive and motivation, loss of libido, loss of strength & stamina, poor muscle tone & loss of lean muscle tissue, abdominal weight gain & increased fat, joint pain, and a lack of mental clarity. WE DO NOT PROVIDE GYM MEDICINE. You must be at least 30 years or older for consideration. Exceptions include those under 30 who have frank defiencies.

Symptoms of thyroid deficiency may include weight gain, fatigue (especially in the afternoon), dry hair, dry skin, cold hands, cold feet, and constipation.
Hormone treatments in the order of effectiveness can include topical creams, intramuscular injections, and subcutaneous implantation of testosterone and/or estradiol hormone pellets. Creams are not as highly recommended as shots or pellets since the transdermal administration (via the skin barrier) may disallow as effective dosing as intramuscular or subcutaneous administration that bypass the skin.
The net result of treament is the restoration of your quality of life, more independence, improved energy, increased strength & stamina, enhanced mental clarity & acuity, and improved cardiovascular morbidity factors because of the increased lean muscle and decreased fat tissue.
