Hormone treatment is most often beneficial for individuals 40 years of age and older who are experiencing low libido, chronic fatigue, depression, weight gain, difficulty concentrating, hot flashes, and other symptoms in women associated with perimenopause (pre-menopause), menopause, or symptoms such as low energy, low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, loss of strength, and difficulty concentrating in men. Hormone treatments can improve or eliminate these symptoms, allowing patients the best quality of life possible.
In some cases, hormone replacement therapy may also be a viable treatment option for those younger than 40 or who are also suffering from hormone imbalances, including those involving a variety of nonsexual hormones which can, in some cases, still cause sexual problems. Since many health issues can contribute to symptoms, it is first necessary to undergo medical testing to see if hormone issues are to blame for symptoms or if some other type of treatment would be more helpful.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
When hormone replacement is called for, Revitalize Anti Aging Centers use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). This mode of treatment employs naturally-derived hormones that are biologically identical to those found in the body – which means that a patient’s system reacts to them exactly as if they were manufactured inside the body. Since there is nothing foreign for the body to react to, the risk of side effects is significantly diminished compared to synthetic hormones. BHRT can be obtained in several forms but the most popular choice is a subcutaneous pellet which ensures a steady and safe delivery with only a few office visits a year.
