Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Andropause Therapy “Male
as women go through menopause, which causes a decrease in hormones,
SO DO MEN.
Male Menopause, also called ANDROPAUSE, is not nearly as dramatic
as the female version. Some men, though, may actually go through
a rather sudden change in testosterone levels that might correlate
with the hormonal changes that women experience during menopause.
However, most men experience a slower, more subtle hormone decline.
When hormones are replaced or restored to physiologic levels considered
normal for younger males, older men may experience a dramatic reversal
of many of the changes caused by aging.
Natural Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy in men involves
the use of the hormone Testosterone. Please note that Natural
Testosterone should not be confused with synthetic derivatives.
Testosterone deficiency in males has been an unrecognized syndrome
for many years, possibly because the blood levels of testosterone
in men decrease over time.
Andropause Replacement Therapy may also include the addition of
Pregnenolone, DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone), Aromatase Inhibitors,
Chrysin, Dihydrostestosterone, Zinc, Selenium,
and other supplements.
There are many symptoms of testosterone deficiency that are sometimes
referred to as the “grumpy man syndrome”.

- Reduced libido or the reduced desire for sex
