An Overview of Male Bioidentical Hormones during Men’s Health Month
Each June, the United States celebrates Men’s Health Month. During the month of June, men are encouraged to take control of their health and schedule necessary physician appointments, start a new workout program and follow a heart-healthy diet. Like many women in Tyler, Texas and surrounding East Texas communities, certain men lose the motivation and stamina to exercise on a daily basis because of lower energy levels from the natural aging process. Tyler Wellcare can help! Our office offers male bioidentical hormones (BHRT) in order to help men regain balance from lowering hormone levels.
Celebrate Men’s Health Month
Men’s Health Month is celebrated across the United States with free health screenings, health fairs, outreach programs and health education. The overall goal of Men’s Health Month is to raise awareness of preventable health conditions by encouraging early detection and treatment. By visiting a physician at least one time per year, countless men are able to address health conditions before they turn into a chronic disorder.
The top causes of death in men in the United States include heart disease and cancer. While cancer is often unpreventable, heart disease can be easily addressed in many cases with adequate exercise and a heart-healthy diet. Unfortunately, during the aging process many men lose the motivation to engage in regular workouts. In many men, the loss of energy is caused by a hormonal imbalance.
What are Male Bioidentical Hormones?
Male bioidentical hormones, also known as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), is a safe, effective and natural way for men to address the many symptoms of hormonal imbalance, including loss of energy, weight gain, muscle loss and depression.
Male bioidentical hormones are designed to replicate the hormones found naturally in the body molecule by molecule. Since they are similar to the hormones found throughout the body, the bioidentical hormones are able to be incorporated in the body without the negative side effects associated with synthetic hormones.
Male bioidentical hormones are safer and more effective than harmful synthetic hormones because they are made from plant-based compounds. The plant-based compounds are processed to hold an identical structure to the hormones found within the male body.
Male bioidentical hormones (BHRT) can help with:
- Weight gain
- Muscle loss
- Loss of energy
- Poor sleep quality
- Mood swings
- Decreased libido
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
