Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Genesis Health Institute
Genesis Health Institute is a national leader in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. With clinics located across the United States, our doctors have worked with thousands of patients to dramatically improve their quality of life and reduce their risk of getting chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a specialized branch of medicine that uses natural hormones to restore youthful hormone levels for both men and women. Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy, which relies on synthetic hormones and typically only addresses deficiencies in one or two hormones, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy looks at your complete hormone profile and, based on careful individual testing, adjusts levels of all your critical hormones back to the levels you enjoyed in your twenties or thirties. Our patients typically experience a cessation of hormone-deficiency symptoms, few side effects, and often report they feel like they've discovered the "fountain of youth."
- Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women. The hormonal stages of a woman's life are well known: puberty, optimal hormone levels, perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause. At each stage, a woman's hormone levels change, with profound effects on her health and well-being. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women uses the best forms of estrogen, natural progesterones, and other steroid hormones to relieve symptoms associated with menopause and reduce the risk of disease.
- Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men. When a man is in his twenties, his hormone levels, including testosterone, are at peak levels. Beginning as early as age thirty, however, male hormone levels begin to drop, while estrogen levels often rise. The result are wide-ranging symptoms including fatigue, depression and low mood, reduced sex drive, impotence, thinning hair, muscle loss, and even the development of secondary female characteristics. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for men uses testosterone as well as other steroid hormones to restore a man's youthful hormone levels and restore the youthful vitality he experienced in his early twenties.
