Is Natural Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for You?
Anti-aging Medicine's Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) doctors take an integrated approach to anti-aging medicine for both men and women. Our programs are customized and prescribed by our specialized physicians to include proper fitness, nutrition and supplements in combination with possible anti-aging Bio-identicall Hormones. This balanced preventive medical approach helps put an end to suffering and the negative effects caused by stress induced adrenal fatigue, peri-menopause, menopause, post-menopause, andropause (the male menopause), hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
Men and women often mistakenly believe that fatigue, low sex drive, insomnia, weight gain and other symptoms of menopause, andropause, adrenal fatigue and thyroid disorders are just an inevitable part of getting older. However, these symptoms are in fact caused by imbalanced hormones of the body. Many people have found relief with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. This natural therapy is considered anti-aging because it works to combat the symptoms attributed to aging and it can improve longevity and quality of life.

Women suffering from premenopause, menopause, post-menopause, thyroid disorder, or adrenal fatigue symptoms who are seeking to put an end to hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, mood swings, weight gain, and low libido are turning to Anti-aging Medicine to replace their female hormones. Our anti-aging hormone therapy is designed with each individual in mind and our customized programs provide relief for many women suffering from the symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
Life moves so fast these days we rarely are able to take time out for ourselves. We change the oil on the car, fix the water heater, plumbing leak, mow the yard, and yet often put off the most important piece of equipment we own. Our BODIES.
Women are far better at keeping tabs on their health than men, however it is hard to stay on the cutting edge of the latest medical treatment, and preventive health practices due to an explosion of new information over the past decade.
You are also different from men in many respects. Your female hormones protect you from some diseases yet put you at risk for others. You are vulnerable to osteoporosis, breast and ovarian cancer along with many other conditions. Cellulite and weight gain due to hormone imbalances and/or Menopause can result in devastating changes in your bodies composition, skin, hair, energy levels, and consequently have additional drastic negative effects on your psyche.
As we age, certain hormones like estrogen, progesterone, HGH – human growth hormone - thyroid hormones and even testosterone decline. This decline causes an hormonal imbalance that can trigger sexual, mental and physical problems.
Women in their mid-thirties and forties can suffer from pre-menopause and women in their fifties and beyond can suffer from menopause.
Traditionally, women suffering from the above have been prescribed the contraceptive pill to “regulate periods”, or anti-depressants to “settle-down” or benzodiazepines like valium to “calm down”. This approach does not get to the root of the problem, and worse allows the underlying disease to progress.
In many cases, a simple age management treatment, combining exercise, diet, nutritional supplements and bio-identical hormone medications, if medically indicated, can improve or even reverse many of the issues that aging women suffer from.
Anti-aging Medicine’s focus is to treat the “cause” not just the symptoms by stabilizing your hormone levels so you can overcome or reverse your symptoms in a safe and effective manner, minimizing or eliminating the use of drugs, which almost always have negative side effects. We can help improve your health, performance and appearance enabling you to get back on track.
Hormone Replacement Therapy: Bio-identical vs. Synthetic Hormones
Much has been said about Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for women recently. The debate still rages over treatment of menopause with synthetic pharmaceutical hormones versus the Natural Bio-identical Hormones. Suzanne Somers claims in her many books that Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy has had life changing effects and has resurrected her career. On April 21, 2009, Dr. Phil addressed the importance of managing women’s hormone levels with Bio-Identical Hormones vs. synthetic. WATCH VIDEO
Bio-identical Hormones are made to have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. Synthetic hormones are intentionally different. Big pharmaceutical companies can't patent a bio-identical structure, so they invent synthetic hormones that are patentable like Premarin™, Prempro™ and Provera™.
Though Bio-identical Hormones have been around for years, most health care practitioners are unfamiliar with them. There are several branded versions now available for use in the kind of hormone replacement therapy typical of synthetic hormones. This is generally a one-size-fits-all dosage regime.
