Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Santee CA

As men and women age, hormone levels decline. Declining hormone levels cause significant changes in the body, including low energy, weight gain, difficulty sleeping, and loss of libido. BHRT helps alleviate these symptoms while reducing the risk of many diseases associated with aging.

EFFECTS OF BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy will not reverse aging. Natural hormone therapy aims to maintain sound levels of hormones to alleviate symptoms and reduce the risks of acquiring many of the diseases associated with aging. BHRT’s benefits include increased energy, weight loss, the diminished difficulty of sleeping, and improved libido.

Knowing which hormones to replenish and how to adjust the levels for optimal results requires specialized tests and training. Dawn Philp, FNP, has undergone extensive training in diagnosing, treating, monitoring, and adjusting hormone levels for both men and women.

ALLEGED CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH RISKS

Several newspapers in early 2014 cited a flawed study that was retrospective, poorly designed, and implied negative cardiovascular effects from testosterone treatment. This study could not be further from the truth. Numerous studies document the beneficial cardiovascular effects of testosterone optimization.

SAFETY OF BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Unlike bioidentical hormones, many of the commonly prescribed synthetic hormones introduce foreign substances that produce toxic by-products, causing a wide array of side effects and more serious conditions such as an increased risk of cancer and heart disease.  Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is safe and free of the risks associated with synthetic hormones.

Natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional (synthetic) hormone replacement therapy. Studies have shown the long term health benefits of natural hormone optimization reduces the risks of the diseases associated with aging (i.e., cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke, and senility).

ALLEGED PROSTATE HEALTH RISKS

There have been numerous studies documenting no increased risk of prostate cancer with testosterone supplementation. A well-known Harvard urologist, Dr. Abraham Morgentaler, has devoted a large piece of his career to studying this issue. Prostate cancer is almost always contracted later in life when testosterone levels have significantly declined.
