Stop aging and get your life back!!

Hormone therapy is one of the most effective antiaging treatments. The purpose of this therapy is to replace hormones that are low or absent.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation and fear regarding hormone therapy. In the past we only had synthetic hormones available which hormones which caused many side effects and complications including cancer, heart attacks, blood clots, immune disorders, etc. Most studies were done with synthetic hormones and due to these negative effects hormonal treatment were discontinued, giving bad reputation to the hormones. Fortunately bioidentical hormones were discovered.

Bioidentical hormones are extracted from plants as they share the same structure of the human hormones making them safe and effective. Bioidentical hormones have been in use for at least 40 years

Hormonal deficiencies are very common, affecting a large number of people, almost every woman after the age of 45-50 suffer from hormone deficiency (menopause) with very uncomfortable symptoms like: hot flashes, fatigue, insomnia, irritability, depression, body ache, low sex drive, painful intercourse, recurrent urinary infections, osteoporosis and accelerated aging with hair loss, weight gain and thinning of the skin, facial and neck wrinkles. It also affects relationships with spouses/partners and work.

Men frequently suffer from testosterone deficiency with similar symptoms, including: fatigue, apathy, procrastination, and lack of drive towards life, loss of muscle mass, obesity, enlarged breast and lack of stamina. We are now seen low testosterone levels in young adults. Almost every male is affected.

We replace hormones with bioidentical hormone pellets. These pellets are inserted under the skin with local anesthesia. The hormones are released slowly in to the blood supply and can last 3-6 months depending on the metabolism of the person. This is the most effective and physiological way to replace hormones, seeing benefits sometimes as early as in one week. The results are superior compared to creams, injections or patches. I have been treating patient with pellets for 10 years. It is a life changing experience for you and your family when you finally get your life back!!
