Our Bioidentical hormone replacement doctors are highly trained in the replacement of bioidentical hormones in both men and women. Bioidentical hormone therapy is a treatment that gained public interest specifically in 2002 when it was released as an alternative to synthetic hormone treatments. Bioidentical hormones accurately replicate hormones in chemical and molecular structure that are produced in our bodies. Hormone replacement therapy including natural replacement for the treatment of menopause, male aging, premenopause, sleep, headaches, fatigue, andropause is offered in our Beverly Hills clinic.
During the reproductive peak in a woman’s life she experiences a regular release of hormones estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. As her age progresses so does the lag time between releasing the hormone until finally menopause sets in, no longer stimulating an estrogen release for eggs. The aim of all hormone replacement is to maintain the lost balance within a woman’s body as she experiences her transitional phase of menopause.
Women who choose bioidentical hormone replacement are seeking alternatives to traditional therapies that might be synthetic. Benefits to bioidentical hormone replacement include less bleeding and bloating and a formulation that is bioidentical to what is produced naturally in the body.
Men start to experience Andropause or the decrease of the male hormone testosterone at age 30. There is more of a gradual decrease in the production of testosterone then after age 40. Bioidentical testosterone therapy aims to replace the lost testosterone levels.
