Males begin a hormonal decline at age 35 - there is a decrease of 2% of testosterone production per year. As those testosterone levels fall, men begin to experience decreased mental clarity, mood swings, irritability, depression, anxiety, extreme fatigue, and sleep disturbances. Most men do not lose their sex drive, so this can't be used as a marker of hormonal balance!   Often patients are band-aids with antidepressants, sleeping and anxiety pills and a host of other medications. These drugs have additional side effects such as weight gain, zombie like-state, dependency for sleep, and decreased sex drive. These medications do not address the root problem that is causing the symptoms.   In a recent study, men over 55 with higher levels of testosterone showed

You Are Tested Low In Hormones   This one is pretty obvious, but not always acknowledged. Similar to the fact that doctors don’t give insulin to someone who doesn’t test with abnormal levels, doctors test to make sure that your levels are signaling a need for a hormone. If your body is producing a normal level of the hormone, there isn’t a reason to take it. Your body is producing a level that it is happy with, so let it be happy!    Your doctor will be able to look at your other hormone levels and the standard levels for your age, to determine that your results are within a healthy range. Many people assume they are low in a hormone because of age

Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant extracts and have been modified to be structurally indistinguishable from the hormones our own bodies make. As such, they are safer and more effective than traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which uses animal hormones that are similar, but not exact to our own. However, even with plant-based hormones, there are limits on how long you should be treated.   How Long Should You Use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?   Despite the fact that BHRT uses plant derivatives rather than synthetic animal derivatives, the use of bioidentical hormones hasn’t been studied as extensively as traditional HRT. There’s some evidence that because they’re natural and identical to the hormones your own body produces, they could be appropriate for continual use.   That

Your body produces hormones that act as messengers to tell various parts of your body when and how to work. They control nearly all your bodily functions, from your brain to your digestive system to your sex drive. When you age, your body starts to produce fewer hormones, and you experience symptoms that make you feel less like your younger, energetic self. Fortunately, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is available to help you perk back up.   While you may have heard some bad press about traditional HRT — which was made from animal hormones — the negative conclusions associating HRT with adverse health events are now considered flawed and unreliable. The professionals at Columbia Fertility Associates recommend BHRT because it helps

Defined as man-made hormones; they are very similar to the hormones produced by the human body. These are then used as treatment for men and women whose own hormones are low or out of balance.   Hormones are special chemicals made by parts of the body called glands. They are messengers that tell other parts of the body how and when to work. Hormones control almost all tasks in the body. These include sex and brain function, growth and the breakdown of food. When hormones are out of balance, symptoms can occur.   Common hormones that are matched are estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. These are then used as treatment for men and women whose own hormones are low or out of balance. Some prescription

  There’s no doubt that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be a life-changing solution for men and women experiencing an array of frustrating symptoms related to hormonal imbalance or fluctuating hormones. In addition to traditional HRT, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is also a highly sought-after option for a number of reasons.    Hormone fluctuations that people experience during menopause or andropause can cause physical and emotional changes such as mood swings, insomnia, lethargy, brain fog, lack of energy, dry skin, hair loss, and more. Whether you’re a man or a woman, these symptoms can affect your lifestyle and even your productivity.   Fortunately, there is a therapeutic treatment that helps to balance out your hormone levels and thereby alleviate the symptoms, and it’s called hormone
