Do you suffer from unexplainable fatigue, a drop in sexual desire, erectile dysfunction or even a decline in mental clarity? If you do the truth is that you are not alone, these are common symptoms felt by many people as they age, especially men. The problem often stems from a drop in the male hormone testosterone. Women can experience similar symptoms as well as depression and mood swings. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy by our Axoxa practice has been helping patients overcome the effects of hormonal decreases. Not all hormone replacement therapy is alike the standard therapy is hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones. This therapy doesn’t always work well because even though these synthetic hormones are similar to natural testosterone they are not identical and our bodies often do not recognize them making the treatment less effective or even ineffective.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) from our practice is different because our hormones are synthesized from yams and has the identical chemical structure of our body’s natural hormones. Because they are identical to our natural hormones BHRT hormones are easily recognized by the body. By using BHRT therapies to replace the natural hormones the symptoms of male aging and sexual dysfunction can be alleviated. Premature aging in women is also treated using BHRT and the therapy can add an extra layer of protection against Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, osteoporosis and heart disease for women. Our practice believes in starting BHRT as soon as the symptoms begin or even before hormone levels in men and women drop to the point that these symptoms begin.
If you suffer from the signs of hormone deficiency our practice is here to teach you how to overcome them. While not a fountain of youth Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help reverse the consequences that normally accompany the aging process and drop in natural testosterone and other essential hormones. If you’ve been feeling fatigued, have lost that romantic spark, are depressed or exhibit frequent mood swings give our office a call and have our doctor evaluate if BHRT is right for you.
