Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the use of hormones to help resolve symptoms related to hormonal imbalance or decline in men and women.
Almost all men over the age of 40 begin to experience hormone imbalance. There is a natural decline in hormone production with age. Production declines by 50% by age 50. There are also lifestyle and environmental factors that may accelerate that decline.
As we age, we start to experience a multitude of symptoms that are a result of a decrease in our natural hormone production and levels. Men each have their own set of issues that can result from hormone deterioration and imbalance.

The result is andropause, known as the “male menopause.” Andropause results in feeling like you have lost your competitive edge and life seems to be an uphill battle. HRT can assist in relieving these symptoms and making life fun again. It also helps protect against the deterioration of organs that results from declining hormone levels.

- Night Sweats in Men
- Lower Sex Drive
- Hair Loss
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Urinary Problems
- Memory Loss
Andropause is the male menopause. A gradual decline in testosterone can start in the 30’s. According to the US Census bureau, 4-5 million men suffer from symptoms of low testosterone. But it is estimated that only 5-10% will seek treatment. By the age of 50, 50% of men will have low testosterone. By 60, 60%, by age 70, 70% ……Fortunately, the best news is that these hormone losses and imbalances easily correctable.
