Osteoporosis is a condition of gradual bone loss. “Osteo”, meaning bone, and “poros”, which is Greek for porous, refers to the loss of bone density. Osteoporosis is a bone disease occurring when the body loses too much bone, makes too little bone, or both.  Literally meaning “Porous Bone,” when viewed under a microscope, an osteoporotic bone seems to have much larger and more frequent “pores” than healthy bone. As bones become less dense, they weaken and are more likely to break.   Both women and men have increased risk of osteoporosis as they age, especially after age 50. The biggest reason for this is because hormone levels decline, specifically estrogen.  This is the most common cause of osteoporosis, as it accelerates bone

  There are two main types of testosterone available, synthetic and bioidentical. Both are manufactured and produced in a lab but the important part is how differently your body reacts to each.   Bioidentical testosterone duplicates the exact chemical and molecular structure of the naturally produced hormone. Therefore, the body thinks it is the real deal, and your body reacts as it should.   Synthetic testosterone does not have the same molecular structure as the naturally produced hormone, so it doesn’t quite fit the receptor. As a result, these hormones can cause unwanted side effects.   Testosterone molecules are a bit like keys to a lock; they have a 3D shape that perfectly fits the hormone receptors. When these molecules attach to the receptor it fits tightly,

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

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

  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
