Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Learn How Hormone Therapy Specialists in Virginia Can Help You

The male body reaches its peak for testosterone production in the late teens and early 20s. This hormone is responsible for a variety of functions, including sexual and reproductive functioning, muscle strength, distribution of body fat, and pushing a young boy’s body into puberty. The typical man starts producing less testosterone starting around age 30. From that point forward, he loses about 10 percent of his testosterone for every decade of life. This can lead to hormone imbalance and the many uncomfortable symptoms that accompany it. If you are regularly feeling run-down and generally unwell much of the time, you could be struggling with low testosterone.

Other hormones may also play a role in the imbalance, such as thyroid, cortisol, and even estrogen. Just as women have trace amounts of testosterone in their system, the same is true for estrogen in men. Like many men, you may have a hard time admitting that you don’t feel like yourself and you need outside help. There’s no shame in that. In fact, recognizing your need is actually a sign of strength.

Have You Already Been Down This Road?

Perhaps you have already visited a doctor in the Greater Virginia area about some of your symptoms. You may have even left the office with a prescription for anti-depressant or erectile dysfunction medication. The problem is that those issues didn’t get much better and you still experienced all of the other ones. That is because most traditional doctors don’t have the time or desire to investigate the root cause of a series of symptoms that appear unrelated at first. This is especially evident when it comes to hormone imbalance. Doctors who practice alternative or complementary medicine take an entirely different approach to both diagnosis and treatment.

Your Male Hormone Specialist spends at least an hour with you during the first appointment to understand what is really going on with you. He or she wants to hear about your symptoms in detail, including how they affect your day-to-day life. This gives some clues as to the specific hormones that may be out of balance. Next, your doctor confirms your verbal report by running some laboratory tests to get a current reading for each of your major hormones. When the results come back, he or she provides them to a pharmacist to prepare your customized Hormone Replacement Therapy compound.

No two patients who undergo Hormone Replacement Therapy receive the exact same treatment. Each compound contains the specific replacement hormones the patient needs in a dose that allows for maximum symptom relief in the shortest amount of time.

Natural Ingredients Make a Big Difference

Men are increasingly receiving prescription medication for andropause, a condition that happens between the approximate ages of 35 to 55. It is similar to menopause in women. Unfortunately, the artificially created ingredients can cause significant side effects for some men. This discomfort leads them to look for a more natural solution for hormone balancing. Male Hormone Replacement Therapies offered by the Hormone Specialists found on the Virginia BHRT Locator® are prepared with plant based ingredients that have an identical cellular structure to the hormones produced in your own body. This allows for gentle relief of symptoms, something that both men and women can appreciate.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can transform the way you look & feel – for good. Contact one of these Virginia Bioidentical Hormone Doctors and get back to being you.
