All about Hormone Therapy
As you age, some of your body functions slow down. Many people suffer from sluggish hormone production while they grow older. Men do not produce and store as much testosterone in their gonads, for example, while women slow down the production of estrogen in their ovaries.
Reduced sex hormone production decreases the individual’s ability to reproduce. Low hormone levels also causes decreased muscle mass, a change in sleep patterns, lackluster libido and other changes. Decreased hormone levels also result in an altered mental state – many people say they feel more reasonable and less emotional once they reach menopause and andropause.
Unfortunately, reaching menopause and andropause is not like switching off a light – it is more like a crazy carnival ride that goes in unexpected directions at uneven speeds. Your hormones rage like a teenager one day and like a little old lady the next. You might struggle with hot flashes that soak your clothing, moodiness that makes you difficult to be around, and insomnia that drains you of your fading energy.
How Hormone Replacement Therapy Helps
Dr. Ann J. Peters prescribes hormone therapy to smoothes your transition to menopause and andropause. They work by keeping your hormones at therapeutic levels, which means you will not suffer the hot flashes, moodiness, insomnia and other symptoms that made life miserable.
Hormone replacement therapy has been around forever but the old-fashioned treatments used estrogen alone. During the course of a research project, scientists discovered the practice of single-hormone therapy was inappropriate as treatment for chronic illnesses. Today, anti-aging specialists like Ann J. Peters MD use bioidentical hormone therapy to reduce the symptoms of menopause, andropause and other hormone imbalances.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone therapy works like conventional hormone replacement therapy to relieve symptoms except that bioidentical hormone therapy uses a combination of hormones created in a laboratory. These hormones are pure, made from natural plant sources and are highly effective for treating hormone imbalances, including menopause and andropause.
Thousands of men and women in the United States find relieve from symptoms of perimenopause and andropause with bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Ann J. Peters creates a personalized treatment plan for each patient, based on that patient’s needs and medical condition.
