A recognized treatment comes of age—naturally.
Mid-life can bring a variety of uncomfortable, interruptive symptoms that affect your quality of life — including your love life. Are you suffering from one or more of the following symptoms?
- Hot flashes
- Loss of libido
- Sleep issues
- Mood swings
- Night sweats
- Weight gain
If you’re nodding yes, your hormones may be out of balance, due to menopause, andropause or other conditions. But the good news is that hormonal imbalances are usually easily correctable with customized bio-identical hormone replacement therapy–BHRT.
BHRT may be the support you need to…
- Cool down hot flashes and night sweats
- Improve memory and concentration
- Ease mood swings
- Improve libido/s.e.x. drive and performance
- Promote normal, refreshing sleep
- Increase your energy
- Reach a normal, healthy weight
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a very well recognized treatment in conventional medical practice, and has been used for decades. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an exciting and contemporary approach to hormone replacement and anti - aging treatments. It is more appealing to many doctors and patients than traditional synthetic HRT, because it uses only hormones that are chemically identical to our own hormones.
Sergey Kalitenko MD specializes in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, and has treated many patients, both male and female. He has also had BHRT himself, so he has a personal as well as professional understanding of the benefits.
What to expect
Everyone’s body is different, but you can expect to see and feel improvements fairly quickly. Success isn’t easy to measure, however. The problem is what to consider “normal” in regard to hormone levels. Traditional medicine looks at norms that are derived from a wide age range of patients — about 18 to 75 years old. How can there be one optimal level for someone who’s 25 and someone who’s 75? (Another question to ask: do you want to function like a 25-year-old…or a 75-year-old?) So judge your own case by how you feel!
GUARANTEE: We only use bio-identical hormones, never synthetics.
What else should you know about BHRT?
- Bio-identical hormones have the same structure as our own hormones, so your body knows what to do with them.
- Dosage can be easily adjusted.
Why do we treat a natural process like menopause or andropause?
The truth is, many women and men experience menopause and andropause too early, due to environmental factors — and we believe that isn’t natural. What’s more, a drop in hormones, if left untreated, may lead to life-threatening conditions such as hip fractures due to osteoporosis. Lack of s.e.x. hormones has also been linked to heart disease and dementia.
What bio-identical hormones do we offer?
- Estrogen for vaginal dryness, memory, mood, concentration, and bone support.
- Progesterone for mood balancing and weight management, estrogen balancing and more.
- Testosterone for increased libido and performance in men and increased s.e.x. drive in women.
- HCG for appetite suppression support, and boosting testosterone production in men.
What about safety and side effects?
No drug or supplement is completely safe. And while there is some risk of an adverse reaction with any hormone treatment, French studies showed that bio-identical hormones are safer than traditional synthetic hormones. Possible very rare side effects of BHRT may include:
- Breast tenderness
The good news is that we can almost eliminate most BHRT side effects by checking your hormone levels regularly. We also check estrogen - related cancer risk and correct it if possible.
Are bioidentical hormones FDA-approved?
A number of biodentical hormones have been FDA-approved. We often use compounds of bioidenticals, and these customized combinations aren’t subject to FDA approval. But if you prefer, we can use only single hormones that have FDA approval.
