After years of private practice in OBGYN, Dr. Riegel has committed himself to studying the effects low hormone levels have on the prevalence of adult onset diseases. Now a leading authority on the application of natural hormone therapy to counteract the effects of aging, Dr. Riegel shares his extensive knowledge with patients throughout the Amarillo, Texas, area and deliver the most advanced technology in hormone treatment directly to your home or office.
Years of study has shown that many age-related conditions such as osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, and even some types of cancer are often linked to low hormone levels. Bio-identical hormone therapy introduces hormones which are identical to the hormones which the body produces on its own. In fact, the similarities are so precise, the body can’t tell the difference, and the patient is able to enjoy the benefits that come with increased hormone levels.
Women who receive bio-identical hormone therapy report improved energy levels, better mental focus, improved sleep, a decrease in anxiety and depression, an easier time losing weight, and increased sexual desire, among other benefits.
Hormone replacement in men has been shown to increase libido and muscle growth, improve sleep patterns, increase the capacity to exercise, and improve mood and energy levels.
