As we get over the hill, both men and women reduce their hormone production. It can have a great impact on our personal and business life, on our physical, mental and sexual health. But Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help boost our hormone levels to those found in us when we were 10-20 years younger.
Synthetic hormones may offer a few benefits. But unlike natural hormones, they do not always fit exactly into your body’s hormone receptor sites. Therefore they may not work as well as bio-identical hormones. Synthetic hormones typically have a greater number of undesirable side effects.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can help treat women in menopause, peri-menopause (beginning menopause), or post-menopause. Treatment can reduce hot flashes, night sweats, and can improve the quality of sleep. HRT can also help in improving mood, concentration, and memory, as well as libido. Women who are on HRT also experience a lower incidence of osteoporosis. They can maintain better muscle mass and strength, which are key components to successful long-term weight management.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
HRT can also treat men suffering from symptoms associated with andropause (the male equivalent of menopause). Typical symptoms include low testosterone, chronic fatigue, loss of libido, erectile dysfunction (ED), irritability, depression, and reduced muscle mass and strength.
Zinnia Aesthetics takes great pride in our ability to prescribe personalized Bio-identical Hormone HRT “regimens”. Treatment can include hormone pellet implants, uniquely tailored to meet our patients’ individual needs. After a detailed review of your personal history, together with your laboratory and physical exam results, we can design an HRT regimen that is just right for you to optimize your hormonal balance. We then carefully monitor and modify (fine tune) your regimen over time, as your needs change.
