Ponce de Leon once crossed an ocean looking for the fountain of youth. By next year, the anti-aging market is predicted to be worth $191.7 billion globally. People everywhere are seeking vitality and youth. But if we focus more on improving our “healthspan,” both the quantity and quality of our years, using the best tools available to us, we can feel robust and youthful—even as we age.
Did you know that chemicals, environmental estrogens, and pesticides are part of the problem? Many complaints related to aging can be addressed with nutrition and lifestyle change, and the symptoms of menopause and andropause can be managed naturally and effectively using nutrition, herbal support, and bioidentical hormones.
Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) uses synthetic hormones that are created in laboratories. Many have been proven to be detrimental over the long term, potentially increasing the risk of cancer and cardiovascular problems for the people who take them.
At Integrative Medicine of Frederick we use only bio-identical hormones which are more compatible with our bodies. Hormones including the most beneficial type of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA can all be derived from plants and are available in many formats.
Bioidentical hormone therapy can improve sexual function, stabilize mood swings, decrease irritability and depression, improve skin and muscle tone, reduce brain fog, and increase bone density. They are available in a variety of forms and dosing schedules (creams, patches, oral), and can be customized based on your personal needs. We do not currently use “pellet therapy,” as the pellets sometimes do not metabolize as slowly as the manufacturers suggest, causing patients to experience unintended overdosing and side effects.
In addition, bioidentical hormones can also be used to address thyroid and adrenal problems, which may be causing symptoms like fatigue, hair loss, dry skin, cold extremities, weight gain, and erectile dysfunction.
