BHRT for Men

For Men

Knowing how vital a youthful hormone profile is to health and well-being, Dr. Patel has developed a natural hormone balancing program call Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT, this involves the use of hormones that are identical to those manufactured naturally by the human body. Hormone imbalance in men can occur at any point in the life cycle, but it is most commonly experienced around middle-age when testosterone levels reach a peak point of decline.

Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance in Men

Men who experience one or more of the following symptoms related to low testosterone can call and schedule a testing and discussion with Valley Natural Health

  • Muscle Loss
  • Weight Gain
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep Problems
  • Gynecomastia
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Irritability 
  • Lower sex drive
  • Depression 
  • Hair Loss
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Memory Loss
  • Urinary Problems

It can be easy to dismiss these issues and not pursue treatment or a discussion, but low-testosterone can severely affect a man’s quality of life, in addition to loved ones.

What is bio-replacement therapy for men? 

The term "bioidentical" refers to the replication that can be credited for the reduced number of side effects and risks patients experience, as well as the effectiveness of the treatment. Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from naturally-occurring sources and designed to be structurally indistinguishable from human hormones. 

Dr. Patel will discuss specifics of laboratory testing, lifestyle, history and symptoms that can impact the compounding pharmacy’s outcome. A compounding pharmacy is closely monitored by the FDA where specific treatments are tailored in the exact strength and dosage the doctor prescribes. This ensures the correct, natural treatment for you.

BHRT benefits for Men: 

A drop in testosterone can severely impact well-being

  • Increased muscle mass and stronger bones 
  • Improved mood
  • Restored libido and better erections
  • Reduced incidence of depression 
  • Maintenance of lean body mass 
  • Reduced anxiety 

Hormone replacement therapy using bioidentical hormones is an effective and natural option for restoring and balancing hormone levels in men. At Valley Natural Health we believe conventional methods used to restore male hormone levels, such as synthetic hormones do not provide the tailored treatment necessary for achieving and maintaining optimal health.

Lifestyle modifications

Education concerning your stage of life and the connections with your thyroid and adrenal glands

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)

 How we Test

An assessment of your hormone levels can be made from sampling your saliva. Saliva testing measures the levels of hormones circulating in the bloodstream that remain free from serum-binding proteins, and can therefore be used by the cells. This form of hormone testing is believed by Dr. Patel to provide a more accurate measurement on which to base a balancing regimen and symptom control.
