Are you beginning to notice the effects of aging? You may not be imagining it.

Hot flashes, night sweats, trouble sleeping, mood swings are the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalance in woman and men as they age.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the natural way to optimize your hormones to more youthful levels. BHRT can help reduce symptoms of menopause in women and hypogonadism in men as referenced in the medical studies. It’s the natural way to balance your hormones for improved health & well being.

Dr. John Alevizos D.O., Board-Certified Physician specializing in Anti-Aging Medicine and Hormone Replacement Therapy will work with you to optimize the balance of your bioidentical hormones to minimize the effects of menopause and andropause symptoms.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is a natural replacement for the loss of hormones due to aging. Bioidentical hormones are molecule for molecule, atom for atom identical to the hormones your body produces. Many of us have heard from our doctors our hormone levels are “normal” and it’s all in our head. There is a huge difference between normal and optimal. For example the difference between a low normal and a high normal thyroid level is 12 pounds in the average person (both still in the normal range). If we took a 50 year old man or woman’s hormone levels and assigned them to a 25 year old, the conventional medical community would say “you’re deficient, sick, etc”. But these levels in a 50 year old are acceptable due to their age, as is arthritis, osteoporosis, and many other conditions that are due to lack of hormones causing aging and degeneration.

* Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help:

  • Decrease Menopause Symptoms
  • Reduce Night Sweats
  • Improve Moods
  • Reduce Anxiety
  • Reverse Low Testosterone

If you are suffering from severe PMS, perimenopause, early menopause, menopause, or andopause (male menopause) BHRT may help in reducing your symptoms.

Dr. Alevizos will design a comprehensive individual hormone therapy program to prevent further hormone loss and replenish your body to more youthful amounts. This includes performing:

  • Full Medical/Family History Review
  • Comprehensive Blood, Urine, Laboratory Testing
  • Nutrition/Fitness Planning
