Introduction to Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

introducton to bioidentical hormone therapyIn our younger years, our bodies produce all the natural hormones we need to be vigorous, healthy, and active. As we age, we gradually begin to produce less testosterone, estrogen, progesterone and other hormones that are crucial to our well being.

In the early period of humankind, that served us adequately. Life was hard and short. Much of hormone production was geared to achieve strength and vitality to the end that we might successfully reproduce. After that the decline was rapid. We got old and weak and were soon dinner for a saber tooth tiger.

Over the centuries, medical advances have provided more and more treatments for diseases and injuries. Now that lifespans are lengthened well into our 70s but we are still left with significant drops in hormone levels after our peak reproductive years. There’s still a lot of living to do! We need those hormones around a lot longer.

We use only 100% natural hormones – nothing artificial

At Genesys Medical Institute Hormone Balance Centers in Salt Lake City, Utah, there are no artificial medicines that mask the symptoms of hormone depletion. We use natural ingredients and we match, identically, the hormones that your body naturally produces. Which also helps to reduce the risks and hazards commonly associated with hormone treatments.

Lots of doctors today prescribe estrogen replacements that are manufactured with artificial ingredients in a laboratory and generally do more harm than good. They are known to have dozens of serious side effects. Most women, and men too, go through significant hormone changes as they age.

While not life-threatening, hormonal imbalance can rob them of full enjoyment of life. Menopause (and it’s male counterpart dubbed ‘andropause’) produces tension and unexplainable irritation. There is generally a reduction in sexual drive and an increase in frustration. It takes a toll on relationships.

We will prescribe an individualized, all-natural hormone replacement program for you

At our clinic, you talk and we listen. We focus on symptoms by listening to your concerns to determine the most effective way to balance your individual hormone levels. By evaluating a series of blood tests, we design and prescribe an individualized hormone replacement treatment. We currently treat men and women from 16 to 92 years of age.

Common symptoms in women include osteoporosis, hot flashes, fatigue, and hormonal weight gain. We see men in increasing numbers who are experiencing symptoms of andropause (male menopause), loss of drive and energy, lowered libido, and increased abdominal fat. We have a remarkable medical weight loss program that is unlike anything you have ever seen before. If you are “weight loss resistant,” you simply must check this out.

Having a healthy balance of hormones is critical to a fulfilling life, and this is our specialty.
