Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Testosterone is the primary sex hormone of boys and men, although girls and women have small traces of it as well. The body produces testosterone in the testes or ovaries and secretes the hormone through the adrenal glands. It’s what gives men typically masculine features such as a deep voice, Adam’s apple, and facial hair. The body produces approximately 10 percent less testosterone per decade of life starting at age 30. Declining testosterone levels can cause numerous problems, including:
- Decreased bone density
- Low libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Loss of lean muscle mass
- Decreased bone density
- Night sweats and hot flashes
- Weight gain, particularly around the midsection
Testosterone Replacement Therapy Using Bioidentical Hormones
Scientists created bioidentical hormones from properties found in soy and yam plants for testosterone replacement and balancing of other hormones. These plant hormones offer numerous benefits over taking artificial hormone replacement in pill form. Because they contain only natural ingredients, the risk of your body rejecting the bioidentical hormones is low. You also don’t have to contend with potentially harsh side effects that make you question whether undergoing treatment is even worth it. It’s common for the body to perceive synthetic hormones as a threat and to reject them as a means of self-preservation.
Male Menopause is Real
Doctors have known for centuries that women experience dramatic body changes in the years leading up to menopause. Weight gain, unstable moods, and a lack of interest in sexual intimacy are just some of the problems women deal with in their 40s and 50s. It has only been in recent years that doctors have come to understand that men go through a similar change of life. Although not as dramatic as what menopausal women experience, uneven levels of testosterone can make life quite uncomfortable for a while.
