Bioidentical Hormones

The term bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (also known as BHRT) refers to the use of hormones that are identical, on a molecular level, to our body’s own hormones. They are used to treat symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, post-menopause and andropause.

and progesterone depending upon your symptoms and level of hormone. Usually we prescribe them in
the form of cream or oral preparation.


andropause word in letterpress typeFor some men advancing age is associated with reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle, increased abdominal fat, and a decline in energy level. This could be due to a condition called andropause. Andropause is also known as the “male menopause”. It is decline of the sex hormone “testosterone”. Andropause is steady decrease of testosterone levels drop by about 10% each decade after turning 30. Because of its slow progression and overlap with common age-related symptoms, many men may not be aware they are going through andropause.

One of the first effects of andropause is a reduction in sex drive. Mild to moderate erectile dysfunction
and lower libido may serve as the first signs of andropause.

Benefits of individualized BHRT for andropause includes increased sexual function, Enhanced libido,
increased bone mineral density, higher energy level and stamina, increased muscle mass, Improved muscle strength, More youthful looking, Reduced body fat, Better memory, Improved mood, Enhanced quality of life.

Testosterone therapy needs to be individualized and monitored to maximize results and improve one’s
sense of well-being. Hormonal imbalances associated with andropause may also be to blame for weight
gain, especially around the abdomen. With the help of individualized bio-identical hormone
replacement therapy and proper nutrition, men can feel more vital and, as well, lose excess body fat.
