Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men & Women
As we get older, our body chemistry changes and we often develop deficiencies in our hormone balance. At first, we develop age-related symptoms, such as lower energy, weight gain, bloating, aches and pain, and mood changes. At our medical practice, we are trained to evaluate normal hormones and optimal hormone balance and in some cases suggest hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormones are structural, just like human hormones, not synthetic. Numerous research studies for both men and women have proven that bio-identical replacement by a trained specialist is both safe and predictable. Men, too, experience a change in hormone levels. Testosterone replacement therapy for men can help achieve medical weight loss, as well as improve stamina and strength. For women, it is well-known that natural estrogen decreases risk of heart disease, and properly balanced with natural progesterone; it does not increase risk of breast cancer. Hormonal imbalances are the genesis for many chronic health problems in both men and women. In some cases, hormone imbalances can increase your risk of serious disease.
The symptoms often first appear in women in pre menopause or menopause, when estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone production starts to diminish. Some of the signs of menopause or related hormonal issues in women include:
- Weight Gain
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Mood Swings
- Low Libido
Good News about Menopause
The good news is that hormone losses and imbalances caused by menopause can be corrected. By using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or through the HCG diet, women feel relief from the symptoms, and can effectively protect themselves against osteoporosis and heart disease. With supervised treatment, natural hormone replacement therapy can make women feel healthier and younger than they have in years.
What is the HCG Diet?
HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone produced by women during pregnancy. This approach to medical weight loss was developed in the 1950’s, by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. He discovered that using HCG in low doses in combination with a low calorie diet resulted in weight loss in pounds and inches.
Facts about the HCG Diet
Unlike all other diet programs, HCG addresses the metabolic and hormonal reasons that cause you to gain weight. HCG literally resets your hypothalamus thus allowing your body to maintain your new weight. The HCG diet is a safe and rapid weight loss program with visible results without loss of critical muscle tissue and without hunger. How Does It Work? The HCG hormone triggers your hypothalamus to break down your abnormal fat cells so you can utilize the stored fat that has now been released as additional energy. Most patients do not feel hungry while on this diet. The HCG diet addresses your metabolism and you will be more likely to successfully lose weight and keep it off.
