Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the use of hormones to help resolve symptoms related to hormonal imbalance or decline in men and women.
Almost all men over the age of 40 begin to experience hormone imbalance. There is a natural decline in hormone production with age. Production declines by 50% by age 50. There are also lifestyle and environmental factors that may accelerate that decline.
As we age, we start to experience a multitude of symptoms that are a result of a decrease in our natural hormone production and levels. Men each have their own set of issues that can result from hormone deterioration and imbalance.
