Bioidentical Hormones For Men
Putting it All Together.
Bioidentical male hormone replacement therapy helps men who are suffering from the symptoms of hormonal imbalance including erectile dysfunction, thinning hair, weight gain, muscle loss, and depression. Expert anti-aging physicians work with you to design a customized treatment plan consisting of bioidentical hormones for men, nutritional support, prescription supplements and an individualized fitness program. These programs help put an end to stress induced adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and the symptoms of male menopause (andropause).
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones for men match the natural hormones in the body molecule by molecule, making them precise duplications of the male hormones that your body naturally produces. Natural bioidentical hormones like testosterone, estrogen and progesterone are easily metabolized, allowing your body to incorporate them without the negative side effects often associated with synthetic hormones.
Why not Synthetic Hormones?
Although synthetic hormones are prepared from plant and animal extracts, these hormones are not identical to the male hormones in the body. Additionally, the desire to patent the synthetic hormones leads to the addition of molecules or covalent bonds. These additions can lead to your body's inability to accurately metabolize the synthetic hormones. They are foreign to your body and can cause severe side effects that are oftentimes worse than the original symptoms they were intended to treat.
The chemistry of the male body is very intricate and synthetic hormones for men do not address this complexity. They treat one hormone deficiency or excess without consideration of how it will affect the other hormones in the malebody. Many times, the wrong hormone is prescribed without having performed comprehensive testing to determine the current hormone levels. Synthetic hormones provide a one-size-fits-all solution to varying individual hormone imbalances without considering the big picture or your individual needs.
How are Bioidentical Hormones made?
Bioidentical male hormones are made from compounds found in plants like wild yam or soy beans. Compounding pharmacies expertly formulate customized medications designed to meet an individual's specific health care needs. The plant-based hormones are processed to hold an identical structure to male hormones produced by your body.
