Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormones are identical in chemical and molecular structure and function to the hormones produced in the human body, and they are usually produced from soy or yam products. Men and women can both benefit from Bioidentical Hormones when they are experiencing age related hormone decline. In women, perimeopause and menopause are the times when hormones decline the most, and for men, male andropause is the phase during which symptoms of hormone imbalances may begin to appear. Using Bioidentical Hormones to restore hormones to healthy levels can reduce the symptoms of hormone decline without producing unpleasant side effects. Many people have been able to enjoy increased libido, sexual function, muscle tone, energy, strength, endurance, cognition, and motivation after using Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to balance their hormones.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help to reduce the signs and symptoms of aging, and it is one of the primary therapies used in anti-aging medicine. Physicians agree that the signs and symptoms of aging often occur due to hormonal loss, and as women and men age, the body becomes unable to produce an adequate amount of hormones. Because hormones control a wide number of functions, restoring them to normal levels can help to improve energy, sexual function, hair growth, metabolism, and emotions. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has helped numerous men and women improve their overall quality of life and battle the effects of aging.
Proper nutrition is essential to balancing overall levels of health and wellness, and without an adequate supply of nutrients, women and men cannot produce hormones. A lack of healthy cholesterol can make it impossible for the body to produce testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, and in people that do not take in enough vitamins and minerals, the body may not have enough energy to produce a healthy amount of hormones. Improving nutrition and balancing hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can drastically improve overall levels of health and wellness in individuals.
The clinic offers cosmetic services that can reduce the physical signs of aging. The clinic also offers Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, which can help women and men retain their youth from the inside out by improving skin elasticity, facial fullness, breast plumpness, muscle tone, and overall health.
IV therapy helps both men and women to receive potent amounts of nutrients that can help them to achieve optimal levels of health and wellness. IV therapy can especially benefit aging men and women because it can support endocrine function and falling hormone levels. Combining IV therapy with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men and women to improve their overall levels of health and wellness, while boosting immune function and diminishing the signs of aging.
Stress, bad emotions, foods, and environmental factors can all cause toxins to accumulate in the body, which can wear down energy levels and the endocrine system, which is responsible for producing hormones. Methods that detoxify the body can improve overall health and wellness levels and benefit the endocrine system and hormonal balance. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help patients to supplement hormones that the endocrine system could not produce due to being weighed down with toxins. Detoxification can overall boost several bodily functions and overall levels of health.
Medical Weight Loss
Often times, weight loss resistance is due to hormonal imbalances within both estrogen and progesterone. While deficient levels of estrogen can cause the body to retain body fat, low levels of progesterone can cause the body to have water retention and bloating. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help both men and women to lose weight by balancing these two hormones, which can improve metabolism and metabolic functions.
