There is no reason that even in your 60s, 70s and 80s, you shouldn’t enjoy the vitality produced by “hormone optimization”, bringing you back to levels you had when you were “20” years old.

As we age and our glands lose their vitality, our hormones fade, become imbalanced, chemicals interfere with the hormones and then actually wreak havoc on our ability to function, feel good, and thrive.

Unfortunately, hormones have something to do with just about everything…

Low sex drive isn’t the only symptom of low testosterone in men. Most major bodily processes are also regulated by hormones. Hormonal imbalance and low testosterone can cause a whole host of symptoms including:

  • Low Sex Drive
  • Fatigue
  • Brain Fog
  • Decreased Bone Mass
  • Loss of Muscle Mass
  • Increased Body Fat (especially in the waist area)
  • Mood Changes
  • Low Mood
  • Irritability
  • Anxiousness
  • Stress
  • Elevated Blood Sugar
  • High cholesterol
  • Metabolic Syndrome

Women: Signs And Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance

Hormones play an essential role in the body. When there is too much or too little of a hormone in the cells, this causes hormonal imbalance. Even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause unwanted symptoms in the body. Women experiencing hormonal imbalance can experience many different symptoms including:

  • Hot Flashes or Flushes
  • Night Sweats
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Weight Gain
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased Sex Drive
  • Discomfort During Intercourse
  • Mood Swings
  • Irritability
  • Anxiousness
  • Low Mood

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy can provide relief from the symptoms of a wide variety of conditions. Natural hormones are made to match your body’s biological hormones exactly and the dosages are customized to fit each individual patient. The “one size fits all” idea does not work with bio-identical hormones.  Each patient is put on a dose specifically chosen according to his/her hormone levels, symptoms, genetic profile, stress level, metabolic rate, alcohol consumption, and overall health assessment. Since the product is compounded at special pharmacies, any dose of any hormone can be added, subtracted, and adjusted as appropriate.  This approach is individualized hormone replacement therapy which takes into account the fact that all women and men are not the same.

There are multiple modalities of administering natural hormones:  creams, gels, sublingual drops, injections, capsules, and implants. However, they all fail miserably to adequately treat the symptoms and achieve balance. Dr. Robert Thompson has perfected transmicosal Bio HRT which has many advantages including

  1. 100% absorption, peak dose in 30 seconds.
  2. Predictable and reproducible dosing
  3. Decreased cost (These Hormone use Generic, Naturally occurring, un-patentable less expensive bio-identical substanances.)

All of the benefits of hormone replacement therapy – mood, sex drive, hearth health, brain function, bone density, and cancer protection – apply to natural hormone replacement without clinical evidence of the well-documented side effects and risk of cancer, stroke, and heart disease from the therapy drug called precisely more chemicalized, horse urine conjugated estrogens contained in conventional pharmaceutical so called “HRT”.

Mental Benefits for Men

Research has also shown that for men, returning their testosterone to optimal levels improved their mental capacity and significantly reduced brain fog.

Emotional Benefits

Some of the emotional symptoms of a hormonal imbalance that hormone replacement therapy can relieve include low mood, irritability, stress, and anxiousness.

Emotional Benefits For Women

Estrogen is closely linked to a women’s emotional well-being and is also linked to mood disruptions that only occur in women, such as premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and postpartum low mood.

An important part of a woman’s overall health is keeping estrogen levels in check. Returning estrogen levels to their functional and normal state can help stabilize mood.

Low testosterone levels in Men can cause mood changes, irritability, increase in metabolic issues, decreased libido, loss of muscle mass, decrease metabolic rateand stress. Returning testosterone to its ideal level can significantly reduce these symptoms by treating them at their source.
