BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES ATLANTA

Bioidentical hormones have gained popularity as a potential solution for addressing the decline in hormones with age. This may be a natural consequence of aging but may also be accelerated in some individuals. For these reasons, anti-aging physicians and patients seek methods of hormone replacement which might slow down the aging process.

 

Reproductive hormones are critical to our body’s health. They are produced in the endocrine glands (adrenal glands and ovaries or testes) and are the chemical messengers in our body that tell other cells what to do. They regulate virtually every bodily function. The natural hormone cycle of men and women is designed to flower briefly giving us the vigor and vitality to reproduce our species and to protect and guide our young, and then begin to decline as part of aging. The peri-menopausal and menopausal years for women are literally a process of withering away on the inside, losing bone and muscle mass, becoming weaker, developing arteriosclerosis, and losing mental acuity as bodily hormone production decreases.

Bioidentical hormone replacement refers to the use of hormones that are molecularly identical to those produced naturally in the body and the use of those to supplement or replace hormones that have declined abnormally. For sexual hormones, it is widely accepted to use bio-identical estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone for menopausal women. For men in andropause with low testosterone, bio-identical testosterone is recognized to be beneficial.
