Gregory Brannon, M.D. at The Youth Institute uses Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy in combination with anti-aging medicine to create specialized treatment protocols that greatly increase the quality of life for men. Recently, male hormone decline and imbalance has been more widely understood, and men have no longer been accepting.
Hormonal imbalances in men can create a domino effect that leads to varying symptoms and syndromes that can be embarrassing, inconvenient, or painful. Dr. Gregory Brannon has helped countless numbers of men to improve the signs and symptoms of hormonal deficiencies or imbalances.
Andropause is a medical condition characterized by low testosterone levels in men. All men have a normal decrease in testosterone levels in the 40’s, but by age 50 at least 95% of men experience symptoms. Andropause in men is similar to menopause in women, except the symptoms and the intensity can vary greatly. Andropause has received little medical attention until recently, as doctors attributed patient complaints to old age or depression. The symptoms of Andropause can include depression, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, poor concentration, reduced memory, sweating, hot flashes, decreased muscle mass, and sleep disturbances. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men has been shown to successfully alleviate many of the symptoms of andropause and restore youthful vitality to aging men.
Hormones play a role in neurological functions and moods, and low levels of certain hormones can affect neurotransmitters that send messages of peace and calmness throughout the brain. Reduced levels of progesterone can reduce GABA receptors, which help men to have a sense of emotional well-being. Fluctuations in testosterone can lead to depression, but balancing hormones with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help reduce anxiety and depression while helping men to feel less anxious and depressed.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an illness that may be exacerbated with hormonal decline. Because hormones play a large role in immune function, declining hormones can cause the immune system to break down. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome closely mimics the flu, and it causes a person to feel mental and physical fatigue that lasts more than one entire day. Other symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may include a chronic sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, headaches, body aches, insomnia, joint pain, muscle pain, and a poor memory. Restoring hormonal balance with Bio-identical Hormones can help reduce & in some cases eliminate the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and restore proper immune health.
When hormones decline, men may suffer from erectile dysfunction. Hormones affect blood flow, and if blood cannot flow correctly, men may have problems achieving an erection. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help replenish the hormones that help blood to flow smoothly, which can improve sexual function, it can also help to increase sexual desire, libido, and the quality of a climax.
Low levels of testosterone can lead to low libido in men. In aging men, the body naturally produces a smaller amount of testosterone which can reduce the energy and desire for sexual activity. Men going through andropause may feel that they have a lower sex drive and find that Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help them replenish deficient hormones in order to regain a healthy libido.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can replenish waning testosterone to healthier levels. In men, testosterone begins to decline at a rate of around 1% each year after the age of 30, this can lead to numerous problems that can greatly reduce the quality of life. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help improve testosterone levels in order to increase muscle tone and strength, promote fat loss, improve scalp hair thickness, balance moods, strengthen bones, improve blood flow, raise libido, and improve sexual function.
