Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (bHRT)

Bioidentical hormone replacement is the practice of using hormones that have the exact same chemical structure as the naturally occurring hormones in your body to restore the hormone levels to those mirroring that of a more youthful age.

 

These hormones are indistinguishable from the hormones naturally produced by the body which means that there are very few, if any, serious side effects. This allows us to positively impact each clients health and improve their quality of life.

 

While we do monitor your hormone levels during treatment our overall goal is to improve your symptoms and restore the protective benefits that the hormones offer with the least amount of risk of side effects.

Frequently asked questions

When do hormones start to decrease?


Testosterone and estrogen start to decrease in or late 20’s & 30’s. Our bodies go through a process called andropause/menopause in our 50’s.




What are some of the symptoms of hormone deficiency?


Females typically experience hot flashes, low libido, night sweats, memory loss, weight gain, depression, painful intercourse and thinning/drying of the skin. Males typically experience prolonged fatigue, muscle weakness, vaginal dryness, memory lapse, fibromyalgia and decreased libido.




How are hormone deficiencies diagnosed?


With bHRT we strongly rely on symptoms and improvement of these symptoms. We do check lab work, with a take home test, to confirm our diagnosis.




How are hormones deficiencies treated?


We utilize pellet therapy in combination with oral therapy, if needed. With this treatment, a small pellet, no larger than a grain of rice, is painlessly inserted under the skin of the buttocks in females or the flank in males. These pellets contain either pure estradiol or testosterone (the active hormones in the body). Over a period of 3-6 months (3-4 for females, 5-6 for males), the hormones contained within these pellets are absorbed by the body and the pellets dissolve completely.




How do you know the treatment is working?


We rely strongly on the improvement/changes in your symptoms to help us understand if the dosage is working for you and if any changes need to be made. We do monitor blood work periodically to ensure the hormone levels remain in a safe range.




What are the benefits of hormone replacement?


For women, therapy is useful, and successful, in defeating the symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. This includes improvements in hot flashes and night sweats, decreased risk of osteoporosis, decreased mood swings and improvement in the overall feeling of well-being. For men, the benefits of treatment with testosterone include, but are not limited to, reduced osteoporosis, lower bad cholesterol and triglycerides and increase in good cholesterol, improved libido and erectile dysfunction, mental sharpness and emotional well-being. Regulation of estradiol levels in men may also help decrease the risk of prostate cancer.




Do you prescribe traditional/injectable hormone replacement?


Yes, we do offer these services if you prefer. We also offer services to help preserve fertility, reduce gynecomastia and other related treatments. You can take our Hormone Deficiency Screening Test here (https://web.keepglowingmedicalspa.com/intake/index.php/839353)

Weight Loss

It is a well established fact that you can safely lose more weight, and keep it off, when working with a doctor. Proper weight loss is a combination of lifestyle changes and, if needed, medication balance.

 

We offer diet and exercise counseling, diet monitoring, and some of the latest medications for weight loss. We work with you to help you make lifestyle changes so you can lose the weight and keep it off.

 

Every one of our programs is specially tailored to each individual client. We take the time with each client to get to know them, find out what has worked and, more importantly, what hasn’t worked and why. We work with you to change your lifestyle, not just your diet. Our program isn’t just for people who are overweight or obese, it’s for everyone. Whether you are looking to lose the baby weight, or slim down before summer or just learn to live a healthier lifestyle, we can partner with you.

 

Our philosophy

 

It has always been Dr. Mike’s philosophy, in all aspects of medicine, people will follow your instructions if they know why things are happening and how things work. He brings the same philosophy into this program.

 

We teach you how your body works, how different foods are processed, what is the proper level of exercise for you, how to reach your goals, and most importantly, how to deal with not achieving your goals but keep going.

 

We use education, meal planning, exercise planning, supplements, vitamins and medications to get you on your path to success. Think of our program like a pair of training wheels on a bike, you need us until you learn to do everything yourself, then there’s no looking back.

 

We want you to join our program once, reach your goals and learn these important health and life skills, then go out and succeed on your own. Other programs set you up for failure because they know when you fail, you will come back to their program.

Frequently asked questions

Who is a candidate for weight loss treatment?


Anyone looking to positively change their body is a candidate. You don’t have to be considered obese or overweight for us to work with you. We can help you shave off the baby weight, lose a couple of pounds before your wedding, or drop the COVID 15.




What do your programs consist of?


That is up to you. We offer diet planning, with or without monitoring, medication prescription and monitoring, or a combination of all.




What medications do you use?


We offer the traditional medications used for weight loss and appetite suppression (Contrave, Phendimetrazine, Qsymia), but also utilize peptides, supplements and other medications depending on your goals. You don’t have to be obese to benefit from some of these medications.




How long are your treatment programs?


Our prescription program length varies based on your body’s response to the medication and how you progress towards your goal. The goal with our diet planning is to teach you how to make healthier choices and change your lifestyle so that you don’t need to rely on us anymore. That being said, we are here for you for as long as you need.




Do you replace my primary care physician because you are prescribing me medications?


No, we do not take the place of your primary care physician. We do take your other medication problems, and medications, into consideration but we will not prescribe you any medications outside of our plan. We do require you to have an established relationship with a primary care physician to monitor your other medication conditions while we work with you.

Anti-Aging

Our anti-aging services are based on the latest research that is published in the medical journals. We use this new data to develop treatment plans to address some of the most common signs and symptoms of aging. 

 

Physiologically, aging can be defined as a progressive function decline or a gradual deterioration of physiological function with age, including a decrease in fertility, or age-related loss of viability and increase in vulnerability [1-3]. Starting at age 30 functionality begins to decrease and morality begins to exponentially increase. After age 30 our fertility and ability to reproduce begin to decrease, the incidence of diseases increase, our flexibility, endurance, muscle mass and bone density all begin to decrease.

 

Frequently asked questions

Why do we age?


Some of the latest research on aging is focused around the belief that aging occurs at a cellular level [4-5] due to the actions of different types of stressors such as oxidative damage, telomere attrition (wearing away), the decline of DNA repair and protein turnover [6-7]. One of the leading hypotheses within this scope is that aging is due to the wearing away of telomeres & degradation of our DNA[8].




What can be done to help slow the aging process?


Unfortunately, we cannot stop or reverse the aging process, but we can help slow the process and help you get the most out of your remaining years and possibly extend the length of your life. Aside from promoting a healthy lifestyle consisting of avoiding smoking, regular exercise, and a healthy diet, we focus on supplements and medications to target some of the proposed causes of aging.




What types of anti-aging treatments do you utilize?


We utilize peptides such as growth hormone releasing peptides, hormones such as DHEA & Melatonin, nucleotides such as Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN). We utilize some medications for off label use, such as metformin & sirolimus, because they have been shown to have senolytic effects.




How do growth hormone releasing peptides work?


Growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP) mimic the actions of naturally produced growth hormone releasing hormone. As aging occurs and hormone levels change, specifically GH, GHRH, and IGF-1, leading to the consequences of aging [9]. GHRP have been shown to restore GH and IGF-1 levels. The benefit of GHRP, when compared to exogenous GH, is that the natural regulatory pathway stays intact, which assures that GH levels are not too high in the body. This makes anti-aging therapy with GHRP one of the safest options we currently have.




How can I benefit from anti-aging therapy?


Some of the benefits of therapy include increased lean body mass, fat reduction, improved energy, increased vitality, increased strength, increased endurance, increased mood, increased libido and sexual function, accelerated wound healing, improved cardiovascular and immune function, better sleep quality, improved bone density, improved skin quality and higher collagen density and hair strengthening and regrowth.




At what age can you start anti-aging therapy?


We recommend everyone consider anti-aging treatments after they turn 25 years old to help slow the aging process.

Sexual Health

MEN

Sexual health is more than your ability to achieve an erection. Sexual health includes your libido/desire, erectile function as well as your ability to achieve an orgasm. About 5 percent of men that are 40 years old have complete erectile dysfunction, and that number increases to about 15 percent of men at age 70. Mild and moderate erectile dysfunction affects approximately 10 percent of men per decade of life (i.e., 50 percent of men in their 50’s, 60 percent of men in their 60’s). But this problem can happen at any age. 

 

There are many factors that play into your sexual health, these include your overall health & medical history, physical activity, weight, tobacco or alcohol abuse, as well as psychological components. 

 

We look to address all of the aspects of sexual health, not just erectile dysfunction. Poor sexual health can greatly affect your confidence, happiness, relationships and overall well being. It is something that, once addressed, can drastically improve your life.

Women

Community studies have shown that 43 – 63% of women experience some type of sexual dysfunction in their lifetime. Due to the sensitivity of the subject, women can be hesitant to discuss these problems with their doctor or significant other.

 

Physical connection and physical bonds are just as important as emotional ones in our lives, this remains true no matter our age. Studies have shown that couples who have regular sex enjoy happier, healthier, longer lives with stronger and longer-lasting relationships.

 

Sexual dysfunction in females can be a result of physical causes, such as hormonal imbalances or menopause, or psychological causes, such as work related stress and/or anxiety, depression, or marital/relationship problems.

Adrenal Fatigue

The “hormone health network” states that the term “adrenal fatigue” is used to explain a group of symptoms that occur in people who are under long-term mental, emotional or physical stress and the stress becomes too much for the body to handle.

 

Our adrenal glands produce a hormone called cortisol, during times of stress our adrenal glands produce extra cortisol. If you are experiencing a period of long-term stress your body is producing excessive cortisol, but it can only keep up with this high level of production for so long before they cannot keep up with this production. When the adrenal glands can’t keep up the high level of production, you experience a crash, we call this crash adrenal fatigue.

 

Some of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue include tiredness, brain fog, lack of motivation, trouble falling asleep at night, difficulty waking up in the morning, salt and/or sugar cravings, and needing stimulants, like caffeine, to get through the day.

 

Using a combination of treatments we can help safely support and restore the proper function of the adrenal glands.

Immune Support

Our immune system is our body’s defense against millions of germs, bacteria and viruses. Your skin and digestive tract serve as the first line of defense by attempting to block germs from entering the body. If germs get past the first line of defense, your body has specially designed immune cells that circulate your bloodstream and lymphatic system looking for and destroying germs, bacteria and viruses.

 

Many things affect your immune system including stress, diet, age, activity level, and nutritional status. We can help your body by giving it all of the nutrients that it needs to make sure it can do its best to defend you against sickness.

Performance & Recovery

Performance Support

 

No matter if you’re an avid runner, weekend warrior, or just looking to get the most out of your body, we can help give you that competitive edge. We can help improve the way your body feels, responds to exercise and how it recovers from exercise. We utilize a combination of peptides that help safely increase growth hormones levels, increase fat metabolism, increase energy and help the body work more efficiently.

 

Recovery Support

 

It doesn’t matter if you are 10, 20 or 50 years old, injuries happen. A sprained ankle, broken bone or torn muscle is the same injury no matter what the age. As we age it takes longer to recover from injuries, some injuries cause pain we feel forever, some injuries require surgery and a long course of rehab.

 

It’s no lie that as we age, our bodies don’t heal the same way as when we were younger. Changes in body composition, flexibility and hormone levels cause us to heal differently as we age. Don’t let that old shoulder injury keep you from performing at your highest level.

 

Our recovery treatments can focus on preventing injury or to safely speed recovery from an injury. We also can help you deal with the everyday aches & pains in your joints and muscles.
