Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
As an adult woman, are you experiencing any of these symptoms:
Disrupted sleep, frequent awakening during the night
Weight gain, especially at the hips and/or waist
Increased body or facial hair
Cold body temperature
As an adult man, are you experiencing any of these symptoms:
Disrupted sleep, frequent awakening and need to urinate at night
Reduced sex drive
Difficulty maintaining erections
Reduced morning erections
Increased abdominal fat
Reduced muscle size
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 bioidentical hormone replacement can alleviate many of the symptoms. The difference between bioidentical hormones and others is that the bioidentical match the ones in our bodies. They are not made from another animal. Nor are they “close” but not quite the same. Because they are bioidentical, they can produce the same effects in the body as our natural hormones. Bioidentical 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. At the Lippman Center, we recognize what is special in every individual and focus on the requirements specific to each.
