A common misconception is that the hormone testosterone is only vital to the health of men. But that is not true! Testosterone is extremely important to the health of both men and women. It promotes healthy muscle mass, decreased fat, increased endurance, and enhanced psychological health.
Bioidentical hormones are different from traditional hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to hormones produced by the human body. This differs from traditional hormone therapies, where the hormones are produced from synthetic means and are not chemically identical to bodily hormones.
At RestoreMD we provide bioidentical replacement therapy by using pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, so patients can have a consistent level of testosterone. This is an important and extremely beneficial distinction. Some treatments, such as hormone injections and medications, only temporarily provide treatment. Pellets, on the other hand, are designed to be time-released, producing steady-state hormone levels on a continual basis. No more roller coaster of hormone levels.
Our patients experience decreased unwanted symptoms (such as hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, anxiety and mood swings), and increases in energy level, libido and sexual function.
