Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Programs
Kansas City Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy specialist, Marilyn Richardson, M.D. at KC Wellness Center specializes in helping men and women to overcome the side effects of age related syndromes, such as andropause and menopause. By supplementing deficient hormones and correcting imbalances, countless patients have been able to gracefully transition through the different physiological phases of aging. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has helped men and women to completely avoid or reduce the uncomfortable physical and mental changes related to perimenopause, menopause, and andropause.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
- Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Menopause
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy For Women
Most women face the changes that menopause brings with some trepidation. Once a woman has reached this stage, her body no longer produces the same level of estrogen or progesterone hormones. Because of these decreased hormones, menopause is often accompanied with a host of physical, emotional, and sexual health problems including:
- Emotional changes
- Anxiety and irritability
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Dry skin
- Decreased libido
- Reduced mental focus
- Joint pain
Following menopause, this hormonal imbalance causes many women to also face a higher risk of coronary artery disease, higher cholesterol levels, as well as loss of bone mass that can lead to osteoporosis.
How does Bioidentical Hormone Therapy help the symptoms of menopause?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are identical to the ones you have lost with the onset of menopause. Although your body is no longer producing these hormones, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy will re-introduce the hormones you’ve lost, safely and effectively. Unlike women who take synthetic hormones, patients using this treatment experience few side effects. Your symptoms will begin to disappear soon after you begin your customized treatment. Once your original hormone levels have been restored, you’ll begin to look and feel like you did a year ago or even decades earlier. The risks associated with menopause and post-menopause will being to be reversed.
- Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement For Men
Men of all ages can experience decreased levels of testosterone, and as men get older, they often hear that they should start expecting the symptoms of these lower levels, which include losing strength, gaining body fat, decreased energy, and a diminished libido.
If you find this is true, Kansas City Medical & Wellness Center can help you regain your appetite for life! Our hormone replacement therapy program will help you regain optimal levels of testosterone, which will reverse many of the symptoms that men experience relating to low testosterone, especially in their 40s and 50s.
What Is Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps men regain and then maintain their natural, optimal testosterone level. The testosterone that we give you contains the same chemical structure as the hormones that are already in your body. Now, we are able to re-introduce them into your body, where they will immediately begin to improve your health and energy. Since these testosterone supplements are identical to the hormones you already have, they have almost no side effects.
Getting Started With Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
When you visit KC Medical & Wellness Center, we will set aside time to talk to you about your overall health, including your health history, and the changes you have experienced with the onset of hormone decline. Then, we will give you a comprehensive medical exam and blood tests that will help us determine your customized plan. This plan is designed just for your body and may include various levels of natural testosterone, estrogen, or progesterone. After your treatment begins, we will ask you to return to our Center for weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly follow-up appointments.
