Hormone Replacement in Phoenix, AZ

BodyNew MedSpa, the premiere medical spa of Scottsdale, Phoenix, and the surrounding areas in Arizona, offers hormone replacement to its patients.

Bio-identical hormone replacement uses natural, plant-derived compounds that have the same molecular structure as those made by the human body. Unlike synthetics, our bodies can readily recognize and metabolize them, minimizing side effects. It may surprise you to know that bio-equivalent pellets have been used successfully by patients throughout Europe, Japan and the United States since the 1930’s. Study after study has shown that, when prescribed and administered correctly, bio-equivalent pellets can benefit a variety of conditions, including depression, weight gain, and osteoporosis.

Estrogen in Women

Estrogen is a woman’s most important hormone. Without hormone replacement therapy, the loss of estrogen puts her at increased risk for premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, Parkinson’s disease, and diabetes. The longer a woman is without the protection of her own estrogen, the greater the risk for serious health consequences of these conditions. These compounded bio-identical hormones can be matched to each woman’s unique needs, something that’s impossible with mass-manufactured products. Data also continues to indicate that receiving hormone replacement therapy at the start of menopause can be very important to a woman’s ongoing health.

Bio-identical hormones are plant-based, natural substances that our bodies can metabolize in the way it was designed to do, minimizing side effects. These compounded bio-identicals can be matched to each woman’s unique needs, something that’s impossible with mass-manufactured products.

Countless women and men have now made the switch to natural bio-identical hormone therapy. These human-identicals have long been preferred for hormone therapy in Japan, France and other European countries. They’ve been the subjects of many research studies on hormone therapy in which significant health benefits have been reported for both women and men.

Hormone Replacement Therapy is not just for Women!

Andropause is the male version of menopause and can be treated with hormone replacement therapy. It is caused by a decline in hormone production. Every man begins a gradual drop in hormone production around age 30. He loses approximately one to two percent a year until sometime between 40 and 55 years of age, when his testosterone levels fall sharply and signify the beginning of andropause. When this happens, he often finds himself lacking in sexual drive, putting on weight, losing muscle mass, and feeling sluggish, depressed, and irritable. Yet most men believe they have to tough out these symptoms as part of “getting older.”

The symptoms of andropause if not treated with hormone replacement therapy are very much like those of menopause. Men frequently experience anxiety, depression, mood swings, loss of eagerness and enthusiasm for daily life, decreased mental quickness and sharpness. With hormonal imbalance,  they also suffer from loss of libido, decreased sexual function and/or sensitivity, loss of mental focus, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, decreased energy, strength and endurance, prolonged recovery from exercise, no improvement with exercise, less desire for activity and exercise. Without pellet hormone therapy, even more dangerous issues such as an increase in body fat, weight gain, osteoporosis, loss of cardiac protection, lower good cholesterol, and higher bad cholesterol can arise.

Testosterone Hormone Replacement Therapy

There is strong evidence that testosterone hormone replacement therapy is very important to maintaining optimum health in both men and women. Studies suggest that hormone therapy with testosterone directly affects muscle development, fat levels, bone mass, many different parts of the brain, moods, depression, energy levels, ability to have orgasms, heart health, and ability to sleep. Testosterone natural hormone replacement therapy continues to receive a great deal of medical support and the benefits are well documented in a multitude of clinical trials.

How Do Hormone Therapy Pellets Compare to Other Treatments?

Other bio-identical hormone delivery methods including hormone creams, hormone pills, hormone injections, and even micronized capsules cannot adequately balance the hormones that are so key to good health. Only subcutaneous hormone therapy pellets can deliver a steady stream of hormones on demand to your bloodstream twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
