Alleviate the symptoms of menopause and andropause with bioidentical hormones. As men and women age, these symptoms can be uncomfortable and affect your daily life, such as changes in mood and sleep patterns. This can be caused by an imbalance of hormones being produced by the body. Our bioidentical hormone programs can restore your body’s natural balance and improve your quality of life.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Although hormones are typically an afterthought when it comes to your body, they are responsible for several of the body’s natural processes. When a hormone imbalance occurs in the body, several symptoms can develop in both men and women, such as:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Loss of libido
- Irritability and mood swings
- Chronic fatigue
How Do Bioidentical Hormones Work?
To date, bioidentical hormones are the closest match to the natural hormones produced by the body, mimicking them molecule for molecule. Bioidentical hormones come in many forms, such as pellets or injections, depending on the preferences and needs of the individual. We understand that no two cases of hormone balance are alike, and our experienced medical team will assess your individual condition and tailor your treatment to your personal needs.
How Are Bioidentical Hormones Delivered?
Bioidentical hormones come in many forms. At Knox Wellness, we work with you to find the right delivery system and offer pellets, creams and troches. They differ in these ways and are sometimes used in combination:
- Pellets: Pellets are inserted in the buttocks via a small incision in the skin. These are a great option for anyone who has issues remembering to take daily medications/creams, as they slowly dissolve over a period of several months.
- Creams: A bioidentical hormone cream is just as it sounds–a cream that can be administered to several different sites on the body.
- Troches: A troche is a lozenge that is placed between the upper cheek and gum and dissolves offering better absorption than a pill.
Hormone Replacement for Men with Low Testosterone (Low T)
There are many benefits to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men. Male hormone replacement involves testosterone treatment in the form of gels, creams and pellets supporting overall health and well-being.
Potential signs of male low T include:
- Low energy
- Loss of muscle mass
- Increased body fat
- Erectile dysfunction
- Moodiness or depression
- Low sex drive or libido
