Testosterone Replacement Therapy Can Be Life-Saving
At Age 30, The Levels Of Male Hormones Start To Decline
Low Testosterone Causes:
Sleep and/or Mood Issues
More Body Fat & Less Muscle Mass
The Male Hormones Which Decline Most Noticeably Are:
Testosterone Human Growth Hormone DHEA Melatonin Thyroid Hormone
With testosterone therapy as well as all other hormone treatment, we measure and then precisely replace these hormones to youthful levels with the following results:
Increased lean body mass
Decreased body fat
Improved sexual performance & libido
Increased energy & sense of well being
Improved memory & concentration
Improvement in sleep
Fewer wrinkles - you'll look younger!
Replacement of Male Hormones
As men age, they lose precious hormones which help maintain total vitality. This is called male andropause (hypogonadism), and men experience this at differing ages and degrees; just like women. Replacement of low testosterone and other low levels of life-giving hormones not only restores youth and vigor - it confers medical benefits such as:
Decreased incidence of heart disease
Decreased risk of prostate cancer
Decreased risk of Alzheimer's
Reversal of metabolic syndrome
The correct combination of estradiol/estriol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and in some cases; pregnenolone, thyroid hormones and HGH often work wonders. Many ailments such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol just to name a few, do normalize once the right combination and dosage of hormones is used.
A little known but important fact about hormone replacement therapy is that there are two types of hormones available for replacement therapy: Bioidentical hormones and Synthetic hormones. This is important because of side effects.
Bioidentical hormones are made from natural substances using a compounding process that results in an exact biological replica of the substance produced by our bodies. This is why they do not produce undesirable side effects when administered properly.
In contrast, synthetic hormones are synthesized from a variety of chemicals and, although these molecules resemble those produced by our bodies, they are not biologically identical replicas. As a result their use can result in very serious side effects, as evidenced not only by the warnings on the labels, but as also shown by research and clinical studies.
Furthermore, in addition to avoiding the risk of side effects and thus being safe, bioidenticals have been shown by most clinical studies to be protective when administered properly. Meanwhile, the latest studies are refuting prior claims that synthetic and bioidentical hormones are "the same."
I did specify "when administered properly" because hormone replacement therapy is a complex and delicate balancing act that needs to be individually tailored to each patient, often requiring a combination of hormones in conjunction with other mitigating "integratives."
This can only be accomplished by a physician who has specialized in this field. Unfortunately, too many physicians claim to be qualified after attending a few week-end seminars and the use of synthetic hormones is widespread.
This is a dangerous proposition so my advice to you is: make sure to do your homework, do some research and ask the right questions before choosing a genuinely "qualified" hormone replacement therapy physician.
