As an adult man, are you experiencing any of these symptoms:

- Reduced sex drive
- Difficulty maintaining erections

People commonly interpret these symptoms as “I am just getting older.”
Of course your body changes as you age. Both men and women experience a decline in certain hormones which can affect mood, energy levels and many bodily functions.
Utilizing bio-identical hormone replacement can alleviate many of the symptoms. The difference between bio-identical hormones and others is that bio-identicals match the hormones in our bodies. They are not made from another animal. Other hormones are not “close but not quite the same.” Because they are bio-identical, they can produce the same effects in the body as our natural hormones. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has been used safely for decades.
Hormone replacement commonly addresses hormones from the gonads, the adrenals, and the thyroid. Because each of us is unique, hormone replacement therapy needs to be individualized. The Lippman Center focuses on the requirements specific to each individual.
