Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Sandy Springs, GA
Hormones are chemical messengers produced by specific glands in one location in the body that travel in the bloodstream to another part or parts of the body. There are over a hundred different hormones produced by the human body that are a crucial part of life. There is continual communication between all of the hormones, and a healthy balance is necessary to make up this well-oiled system. By targeting different activities in the cells and organs, they exert a specific effect for the benefit of the body. When any of these hormones are out of balance (too much or too little), the individual can feel miserable, and the quality of life is impacted. Our HRT Hormone replacement therapy focuses on restoring balance to the thyroid and steroid hormones.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
A “bioidentical” hormone indicates that the chemical (molecular) structure of the hormone being compounded into a medication is identical to that of the hormone that exists in the human body. For a replacement hormone to fully replicate the function of hormones that were naturally produced and present in the human body, the chemical structure must be an exact match of the original. Bioidentical hormones can follow normal metabolic pathways to generate the same physiologic responses in the human body as endogenous hormones. By choosing a bioidentical hormone, one is essentially making the wise decision to replace that which the body would naturally provide on its own. Human insulin injections for the treatment of diabetes are one well-known example of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Synthetic hormones currently used to treat signs and symptoms of menopause only mimic some of the hormonal functions and contain side chains that could cause undesirable side effects. A manufacturer adds a side chain to a natural product to make that product patentable. Scientific studies and clinical trials are less numerous on bioidentical hormones because they occur naturally in the body and therefore cannot be patented.
HRT for Women
Historically, hormonal imbalances in women were simply considered a normal part of the aging process. When your hormones are out of balance, it impacts the quality of your life and relationships. Hormonal balance is critical to your overall health and well-being and should be seen as a proactive approach to “aging gracefully.” Hormone balance is necessary to prevent a myriad of common problems such as infertility and miscarriage, osteoporosis, heart disease, premenstrual syndrome, breast cancer, fibroids, endometriosis, menstrual difficulties, mood disorders, and ovarian cysts. The thyroid and adrenal glands are crucial pieces of this puzzle for optimal hormone equilibrium.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms of hormonal imbalance, you’re not alone.
We custom-tailored your treatment plan to focus on your unique needs and ease the discomfort of the symptoms you’ve been experiencing. We provide you with safe and effective Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) treatment options in a dosage form suited to your preference: creams, gels, capsules, suppositories, injections, vaginal inserts, troches, sublingual drops, tablets, and pellets.
HRT for Men
The hormonal aging process for men starts as early as age 30. Each decade after 30, men’s hormones will decrease by approximately 10 percent. For some men, the decline is more rapid, resulting in unnaturally low levels of testosterone. This condition is known as hypogonadism. Low testosterone, or “Low T,” is a condition in men that is often associated with aging. The slow aging decline in testosterone eventually results in a condition known as andropause. The onset of the symptoms is gradual but eventually after the age of fifty or so; the symptoms start to look alike those of women entering menopause. HRT therapy addresses andropause and hypogonadism symptoms that are the result of low levels of testosterone. Other hormonal conditions in men such as low DHEA, low HGH, and high estrogen will also create unpleasant symptoms.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, HRT therapy could be beneficial
We provide safe and effective Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) and other cutting-edge treatment options for andropause, hypogonadism, and estrogen dominance in a dosage form suited to your preference: injections, gels, pellets, and capsules.
In addition to BHRT therapy we also offer
Human Growth Hormone, also known as HGH, is produced in the pituitary gland. The pituitary produces this growth hormone all of our adult lives from the moment we are born. However, as we age, production of human growth hormone declines about 15% – 20% every 10 years. This is why you see slower metabolism as you age. Unnaturally fast decline in human growth hormone creates symptoms of fatigue, fluctuating body temperatures, premature wrinkling and loosening of skin, depression and moodiness. Maintaining healthy levels of HGH is essential to the anti-aging process.
The most common candidates for HGH therapy are men and women between the ages of 40-65. Individuals outside that range may also be a good candidate for a HGH supplemented program. We can provide Peptide treatments that provide highly effective growth hormone stimulating programs without the actual usage of direct HGH injections.
