Regain your vitality with bioidentical hormone therapy!

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

As its name suggests, it consists of a treatment based on bioidentical hormones, and more specifically testosterone in the case of men. These hormones are of vegetable origin and, thanks to this origin, all the risks of the hormones that have been used until now (hormones of animal origin) are avoided.

The technique consists of implanting subcutaneously, a “pellet”, bioidentical hormone granules that will pass directly into the bloodstream. It is only necessary to make an incision of about 4 millimeters to place them. These deposits will maintain the testosterone levels in the blood according to the needs of the person to whom they have been implanted.

The treatment is very fast, with a duration of about 15 minutes. The technique is performed in the office, using local anesthesia, so it is completely painless. In addition, it usually does not even require stitches and a dressing is sufficient.

Once the treatment is finished, the patient can return to normal life, being necessary only a minimum care of the entry point during the first days.

What are the applications and benefits of the therapy in men?

The therapy is very interesting in men from 45-50 years of age, when the physiological-hormonal levels of testosterone begin to decrease, with the consequences that this entails:

  • Lack of vitality
  • Decrease in energy, motivation and initiative.
  • Mood swings, emotional instability, nervousness and irritability.
  • Depression
  • Poor ability to concentrate, reduced mental clarity and loss of memory
  • Sleep disturbances and frequent drowsiness
  • Decreased physical and work capacity
  • Visceral obesity and increase in body fat.
  • Decrease in muscle mass and strength
  • Loss of sexual appetite
  • Decreased quality and frequency of erections
  • Bone pain

In short, the decrease in these levels causes aging in men. What the treatment achieves is to rejuvenate and recover the quality of life, providing a shot of vitality and returning the desire to enjoy life. It is worth mentioning the multiple benefits of the treatment, for example, in relationships, physical activity, work productivity and physical and mental well-being.

What are the steps prior to this treatment?

First of all, a visit to the urologist is necessary, which is beneficial for the control of the patient’s state of health and thus we ensure that there is no impediment to perform our therapy.

A thorough hormonal study is then performed to check that the patient is below the normal hormonal limits. If the patient has adequate levels, the treatment cannot be carried out.

Finally, the necessary doses are proposed to level or raise the hormone levels to the optimal levels to have a normal life.

Are the results permanent?

The first analysis verifies that the person is a candidate for treatment. After that, the bioidentical hormone therapy is applied and, once a month has passed, a review is carried out, with a new analysis to verify that the desired levels have been achieved, although the best reference to know its effectiveness is the appearance of the desired effects.

The treatment has a duration of about 6-8 months, when the person notices that he/she is dull again and loses the vitality that he/she had regained, it is time for a new implant.

It is important to emphasize that the treatment is completely physiological, only the levels of testosterone in the blood are normalized. It does not cause an overproduction of hormones, as we are used to hearing (for example, associated with gyms). These hormone supplements, which are more common in young people, have serious health consequences and have nothing to do with bioidentical hormone therapy.
