What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormones are chemical messengers that carry tremendously important messages around the body. They control the growth and repair of tissues, reproduction, energy levels, mood, protein synthesis, overall vitality, and nearly every aspect of our lives. As men and women age, many hormone levels decline. This is more apparent in women as they stop having menstrual cycles and enter menopause, but it absolutely happens to men also and has been called “andropause.” Some of the critical hormones we focus on include testosterone, estradiol, progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, Cholecalciferol, and human growth hormone (HGH). In addition some hormones (insulin and cortisol) may increase with age and that can cause other undesirable problems and symptoms.Low or imbalanced hormone levels can have widespread effects on your health and feeling of well-being. For many people, the solution is hormone replacement therapy, which is the use of compounded medications customized to replace the hormones your body isn’t producing.
At Prestige Regenerative Medicine, we administer bioidentical hormones for women and men. Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure and function as natural human hormones and are the preferred treatment of the medical community.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Done properly and medically supervised, hormone therapy can help you restore the joy, energy, and vitality that you may no longer be feeling, and alleviate the symptoms of menopause and andropause. In addition, many studies have shown that having optimal hormone levels can help reduce your risks or improve the ravages of chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, dementia, and autoimmune diseases.
We offer a variety of affordable options and plans for bioidentical hormone replacement including multiple delivery methods such as topical, injectable, and our most popular method, hormone pellet therapy. Our partners at Belmar Pharmacy compound our BHRT prescriptions using plant-derived natural ingredients from FDA approved sources. Unlike a traditional non-compounding pharmacy, we can combine, remix, or change a medication’s active ingredients and additives to meet each patient’s widely varying needs.
Hormone Therapy For Women
Restore Health and Balance
At Prestige Regenerative Medicine, we specialize in balancing and replacing the critical hormones that all women lose as they age. In doing so, our goal is to bring your hormone levels back into a healthy and optimal range. We only prescribe bioidentical hormones, meaning the exact same molecule that your body already makes and expects. This avoids many of the risks that have been previously associated with synthetic hormone replacement therapy that is more commonly prescribed. We DO NOT prescribe the synthetic hormones or pharmaceutical products that have been shown to potentially cause cancer and heart disease.
Hormone Therapy For Men
Optimize Health and Energy
As men get older, the level of testosterone gradually lessens — about 1% per year from age 30 onward. While this is normal, you may start experiencing physical and psychological symptoms from low testosterone levels beginning in your 40s.
In men, the primary hormone we replace is your testosterone (“T”) when needed, but there are a variety of other important hormones that need to be considered and can help add to your vitality. Testosterone replacement can also increase your overall health and prevent future chronic diseases and disability. Medical monitoring and supervision is paramount.
How Do I Pick a Provider for Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Knowing which hormones to replenish and how to adjust the levels for optimal results requires specialized tests and training, which is often not available with many providers and at-home testing kits. Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Rob Hamilton, is Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine, and has undergone extensive training with years of experience diagnosing, treating, monitoring and adjusting hormone levels for both men and women. Dr. Hamilton oversees the treatment protocols and courses of care implemented by our providers in all of our clinics.
