Bio-identical hormones are hormone treatments that we develop to replace natural hormones within the body. Their molecular structure is exactly the same as the hormones the body produces. They’re so identical that the body cannot tell the difference and will use them the exact same way. Areas of your body that have begun to show signs of aging due to a decline in hormones will naturally pick back up to a more youthful functionality.
Men notice several improvements as a result of bio-identical hormone therapy. An increased, more youthful amount of hormones means that the body will respond in a more youthful way. Our male clients see improvements in energy, exercise ability, muscle, sexual drive and performance, overall mood, and performance in daily routines. Hormone replacement can make you feel like a younger man doing an older man’s work!
Women in particular can experience a complete turn-around in their energy, their mood, and their life as a result of proper, natural hormone therapy. Again, it’s like the influx of hormones can restore your body to a more youthful state. Women might notice improved metabolism and healthy weight loss, more energy, a higher quality of sleep at night, improved libido, more regular menstrual cycles, fewer hot flashes, and better mood. This treatment is wonderful for women who have experienced a loss of energy, libido, and metabolism due to having kids or even going through menopause, all of which significantly affect your hormones.
First, you will have a virtual appointment by phone or Skype with Dr. Riegel in the comfort of your own home and at your own convenience. He will go over a few basic health questions with you to help determine your health needs. Then, you will need to have your blood drawn at your local LabCorp or other draw center. After Dr. Riegel has a chance to review your lab results, he will formulate your specific treatment plan and order it to be delivered to your house. That’s it! You will begin your hormone therapy according to Dr. Riegel’s instructions and repeat your lab work at 1 month, then 3, then every 6 months so Dr. Riegel can continue to monitor the efficacy of your treatment.
