replacement therapy programs have long been recognized
in treating symptoms relating to aging in women. Men can
also benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Age related decreases in
hormone levels and hormonal imbalances have been shown to
have a causative effect in many chronic health problems in
men and can increase the risk of and susceptibility to
Millions of men suffer
from andropause, often referred to as male menopause which
is caused by a gradual decline in testosterone. Andropause
in men is similar to Menopause in women, in that it is
characterized by a decline in hormone levels. However,
unlike women, whose symptoms may arise fairly suddenly and
are quite noticeable, men experience hormonal decline very
slowly, with no specific, noticeable symptoms. They just
begin to notice that they feel less like themselves.
Signs of Andropause and Related Hormonal Issues
Low sex drive
and stiff body
Until very recently,
andropause has been largely ignored or misdiagnosed because
of vaguely reported symptoms and the general reluctance of
men to acknowledge these types of problems and seek medical
help. Indeed, many are unaware that there is help
available, thinking that "it's just a part of getting
However, with the advent
of new research, it has become much more widely recognized,
with bioidentical hormone testosterone being
recognized as a viable treatment modality.
Clinically Controlled Testosterone for Men
The cornerstone of
bioidentical hormone therapy for males is the
supplementation of the male hormone Testosterone. As men
age, Testosterone levels decrease, resulting in a loss of
drive, irritability, decreased muscle mass, decline in
sexual function, and weight gain. When Testosterone levels
are replaced and returned to more youthful levels, they feel
more alert and assertive, notice an increased libido and
find it much easier to replace fat with lean muscle.
It is also critical to
monitor the levels of other vital hormones, including
Melatonin, Pregnenelone and DHEA. When all of the hormones
are returned to more youthful levels, men have found the
results to be remarkable. Hormone replacement is far more
effective than the “little blue pill” and can improve all
aspects of your life.
The use of bioidentical
hormones in testosterone supplementation has been studied since
the sixties. Bioidentical hormones have proven to be safe,
and are an effective way to combat many of the symptoms
commonly associated with male aging.
