Male Hormones

As a man ages, the amount of testosterone his body produces gradually declines. This natural decline starts after age 30 and continues throughout life. Testosterone is also important for maintaining muscle bulk, adequate levels of red blood cells, bone density, sense of well-being, and sexual and reproductive function.

Female Hormones

Every patient is unique in her needs and we have the expertise and attention to detail necessary to formulate the perfect treatment plan. We employ the highest quality supplementation and natural bio-identical hormones available.

1 What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are made to act exactly like the hormones produced by our own bodies. Conventional hormones, on the other hand, are either completely synthetic or derived from the estrogens produced by horses (e.g. Premarin).

2 What are the side effects of bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones have demonstrated fewer to none of the side effects associated with conventional hormones. Because of the increased risk of developing breast and uterine cancer associated with conventional hormones, bioidentical hormones are presented as a preferred alternative in hormone replacement.

3 How are bioidentical hormones created?

Unlike conventional hormones, which can be patented by the pharmaceutical companies, bioidentical hormones cannot be patented and are typically only available through compounding pharmacies. Compounding pharmacies allow physicians to tailor the dose and type of bioidentical hormones to your specific needs.

4 How do hormones affect your health?

After the age of 30, most of us begin to experience a decline in the sex hormones (estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone). This decline is typically the result of years of poor eating habits, environmental toxins, and stress.

When the sex hormones become deficient, the aging process is accelerated, which sets the stage for the chronic diseases associated with aging (i.e. high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and breast and prostate cancer).

Contact Dr. Winton to find out if your hormones are in balance and if bioidentical hormones are a good fit for you.
