Testosterone for Men
Hormones for Men is an important component to maintain long term health and wellness. Testosterone can help improve strength, exercise and endurance, sexual function, libido, fatigue and so much more. Hormones decline with age and levels that are considered normal for your age are no longer optimal and as they decline many men no longer feel and function like you used. Listen to some of benefits of exploring if hormone therapy is right for you.
Hormone Therapy for Pre-Menopausal Women
Most women are aware of the symptoms associated with peri-menopause or pre-menopause and these include weight gain, bloating, swelling, fatigue, cramps, headaches, depression and more. Hormones tend to decline right before your period and this is when most symptoms occur. For many they get worse as you get closer to menopause. Why is this? The falling of hormones particularly progesterone results in symptoms related to PMS. While many physicians prescribe medications to control symptoms, but simply replacing progesterone will do the trick. Listen to Dr. Rouzier explain why you feel the way you do and what you can do about it.
Hormone Replacement for Post Menopausal Women
Every study shows that when women go through menopause and lose their hormones it has an adverse effect on health and wellness. It increases risk of strokes, dementia, bone loss, vaginal atrophy, sexual function and causes changes in skin, mood and fatigue to name a few. We understand there is a lot of controversy regarding hormone therapy and we hope this video will help explain fundamental differences in the side effects that can be associated with synthetic hormones like Premarin and Provera vs the beneficial effect of bio-identical hormones like estradiol and progesterone.
