Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy – B-HRT Therapy

Who needs Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (B-HRT)? Almost all of us over the age of 40 (and in many cases over 30) begin to experience hormone imbalance. Over our lifetime, we are exposed to environmental and dietary toxins, which contribute to the natural decline of hormones as we age. To balance your hormones for optimal health and wellness, it is critical to be evaluated by a highly trained physician – including comprehensive lab testing and in depth initial questionnaires – prior to creating a personalized treatment plan.

Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for You? Many factors can contribute to conditions and diseases that can occur at any stage in life, resulting from an imbalance of hormones:

  • Adrenal fatigue (Link to Adrenal Fatigue )
  • Thyroid disease
  • Metabolic Syndrome (Link with Ideal Protein page including metabolic syndrome)
  • Sexual dysfunction (Link to Pelvic floor)
Because of hormone imbalance related to these conditions, you may be experiencing one or a combination of what have become known as the classic symptoms of aging:

  • Weight gain
  • Lack of energy
  • Hair loss
  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Sleeplessness
  • Poor concentration
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue

If symptoms like these have begun to affect your quality of life, you could be a candidate for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (B-HRT)

Adrenal Fatigue in Men

One of the most common health complaints today is the experience of fatigue and lethargy. If you have fatigue along with other symptoms such as difficulty concentrating, insomnia, inability to lose weight, feeling anxious, allergies, or brain fog, adrenal fatigue syndrome (AFS) may be at the root of the problem. Adrenal fatigue consists of many nonspecific but debilitating symptoms. The onset of this condition is often slow and insidious. Sufferers are told that they are stressed and need to learn to relax more. The real truth is that stress and adrenal fatigue are not that mysterious at all. The problem is most physicians don’t know how to test for it and more importantly, they don’t know how to treat it. Unfortunately, most physicians do not take adrenal fatigue syndrome seriously and therefore treat the condition with antidepressants and sleeping pills. Worse yet, some physicians will treat this condition with thyroid medication even if the thyroid hormones are perfectly normal.

The Adrenal Glands Male adrenal fatigue and stress go hand in hand. The adrenal glands, two triangle-shaped glands found above the kidneys, are responsible for regulating the body’s response to stress. The chief adrenal hormone used to manage stress is cortisol. The adrenal glands secrete cortisol in response to stress (Physical and Emotional), low blood sugar, excitement, and during exercise. The highest amount of cortisol is secreted by the adrenals in the morning which helps us begin our day, with levels slowly decreasing as the day progresses.

What is Male Adrenal Fatigue? When your stress level remains excessive for a prolonged length of time, the adrenal glands respond by producing the adrenal hormone, cortisol, continually. When stress is not properly managed or when it becomes extreme, the ability for the adrenal glands to function optimally is compromised causing us to turn to coffee and other caffeinated beverages, or worse, sugar-laced foods for energy.  Unfortunately, this over -exertion taxes the adrenal glands to the point where the glands are unable to produce the necessary levels of cortisol to keep up with the level of demand. This causes the adrenal glands to become overstimulated and potentially “Burn Out” leading to a worsened case of adrenal fatigue symptoms. This hormone imbalance induced fatigue affects all the other hormones in the body, producing a chain-like reaction. While attempting to maintain high cortisol production to manage the chronic stress levels, the adrenal glands are unable to maintain the production of other necessary hormones. One such hormone is DHEA, or dehydroepiandrosterone. DHEA is vital to maintaining the balance of hormones in your body and low amounts of this important hormone contribute to male adrenal fatigue symptoms.

Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms in Men

Adrenal Fatigue Treatment: The Steps to Natural Hormone Balance for Men At Hope Health & Wellness, we have successfully helped men suffering from adrenal fatigue with comprehensive, customized treatment plans. The first step in treating adrenal fatigue is to get a complete comprehensive lab testing to determine cortisol levels. Adding bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and a targeted, high-quality supplement regimen are often the next steps. To maintain healthy adrenal function, you should avoid hydrogenated fats, excessive caffeine, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, and sugar. Instead, you should eat a diet that includes quality protein with regular meals of high nutritional value.  Eating at least every three hours keeps your blood sugar stabilized which will control blood sugar related stress problems placed on the adrenal glands. Getting eight hours of sleep every night is essential to give the adrenals an opportunity to repair. Furthermore, taking time to evaluate daily and situational stressors and practice stress management with deep breathing, meditation, or yoga can be very beneficial in addition to your customized nutritional program and supplements. Following a specific program customized for your needs, adrenal fatigue can be managed, and often times even reversed.

Immune Boosting IV Therapy

WHAT IS IV THERAPY?

Even a great diet may not translate to proper nutrition at the cellular level. There can be many reasons for this, which may include poor digestion, food sensitivities, chronic inflammation, poor immune function, including any sickness/illness leaving our cells weak and starving for nutrients. But, the nutrients are not available because our cells are too weak to transport the vitamins and minerals to where they are needed.

For any of these reasons and more, you may need something I recommend called intravenous vitamin (IV) therapy. Now, this might sound a bit strange at first. But consider what I’ve just shown you… it’s possible to lead a very healthy lifestyle and still be nutrient deficient.

What IV therapy allows us to directly infuse the nutrients your body is starving for. This often works more efficiently than supplements. IV Therapy offers you the ability to individualize the content and amount of ingredients to tailor to your needs. When we do this, IV Therapy can be very beneficial and help you manage any imbalances. You can even use IV Therapy periodically if you are healthy to enhance your overall well-being.

IV THERAPY FOR ANTI-AGING

Poor nutrition, chronic stress, improper sleep patterns, and lack of physical activity all contribute to premature aging, loss of skin elasticity, weight gain, abdominal fat, anxiety/depression, digestive disorders, skin problems, fatigue, and illnesses. Learning how to manage your lifestyle is key to slowing the aging process and retaining youth. A healthy diet high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber and amino acids, along with proper sleep, exercise, and stress management techniques, are all necessary for retaining youth and slowing the aging process. Even if you eat well, your body might not be absorbing the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight the aging process. IV therapy boosts the antioxidant vitamin and mineral levels in your body much more effectively than oral supplements. You can choose from a variety of IV cocktails, each designed to help your body repair damage, prevent aging, and recover its youthful vigor.
