If you are an athlete or active person who wants to keep competing, but your body just won’t allow it, or if you are a man who feels he is losing his MOJO, consider Bio-identical Hormone Therapy to help your body function as it did 10 years ago!
In this post, we want to encourage you to discover what life would be like if you had increased energy. If you worked out and felt stronger. If you had that spark again in the bedroom. In no way does this post offer specific medical advice for you because every person’s needs are different. To fully understand your body and what hormone therapy is right for you we strongly suggest you come visit us for a consultation. But here is a break down of why Testosterone is so critical to keeping you feeling like yourself.
The word testosterone is sometimes used in everyday language to excuse or explain behavior or characteristics regarded specifically as male. Testosterone is, indeed the key male sex hormone – but what exactly does it do, and should men worry about their levels getting lower as they grow older?
WHAT IS TESTOSTERONE?
Testosterone is a hormone, i.e. a chemical messenger, that is responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics, although females also produce testosterone, albeit usually in smaller amounts.
TESTOSTERONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR:
- Sex drive
- Bone mass
- Fat distribution
- Muscle size and strength
- Red blood cell production.
WHAT HAPPENS IF TESTOSTERONE GETS TOO LOW?:
- Decreased desire for sex (libido)
- Diminished erectile function
- Reduced intellectual and cognitive function
- Depression and mood swings
- Decrease in muscle mass and strength
- Decreased body hair
- Changes in skin’s appearance
- Decreased bone mass/mineral density
- Increase in abdominal fat mass.
Testosterone levels decrease with age. Bones weaken and muscle mass decreases along with energy levels. Testosterone supplementation restores levels to those of a healthy younger version of themselves. Increased lean muscle mass and bone density and decreased body fat can all result from testosterone replacement.
While aging will continue whether or not we want it to, we are finding treatments that slow or reverse its effects. Still unsure if HRT is right for you? Read on and hear from a patient of ours…
Testimonial from Chris Pixley, Patient
“As a Husband & father, multiple business owner, & fitness & nutrition consultant, energy is my number one priority. And while there are certain things in my control, the decline of testosterone is not.
I recommend HRT to all of my clients, friends, and anyone that is low in testosterone. I can’t stress what a difference it has made in my life from improved mood, focus, energy, and libido, just to name a few.
I used to think that feeling tired and unmotivated is just part of aging. Now I feel and look better than I ever have at 39 years old. And the best part is that I have more energy for my family and my work.
Dr. Jonathan Weiler and his medical team really focus on individual care and that really has made all the difference. If you’re on the fence, just schedule a consult with Jade at Rejuvime. All of my friends and clients are glad they scheduled theirs!”
