Men Need Hormones, too
When you hear the phrase “hormone replacement therapy,” you probably think we’re talking about menopausal women. But men need hormones too. Every man experiences a gradual decline in hormones production as he ages.
Testosterone is the central to a man’s well-being. Without it, fatigue, anxiety, depression, loss of mental clarity and libido occur. Furthermore, a deficiency in testosterone may lead to prostate problems, poor sexual performance, loss of muscle tone and mass and the potential to develop osteoporosis.
Every man experiences a gradual decline in hormone production as he gets older. Beginning at age 30, his body starts to manufacture less and less testosterone, losing roughly one to three percent per year. Then, sometime between 40 and 55, testosterone levels drop dramatically and signal the onset of Andropause or Low Testosterone, the medical term for the male equivalent of menopause.
What are bio-identical hormones?
Bio-identical hormones are plant-based compounds specifically formulated to match the molecular structure of human hormones. Synthetics, however, are engineered not to match in order to be patented.
Balanced Body MD uses a pellet based method. The pellets are compounded according to the highest industry standards, using the best quality botanical ingredients available. They are specifically formulated to replicate human hormones. When the body is in need of estrogen or testosterone, these tiny implants placed under the skin consistently release small physiologic doses of hormones providing optimal therapy.
Why is it best?
The pellets used for hormone therapy are small – only a bit larger than a grain of rice – and are made to be inserted quickly and painlessly under the skin. Once in place it delivers a steady, natural dose of hormones directly to wherever the hormones are needed. They are crafted according to the highest industry pharmaceutical standards and are chemically identical to the human hormones they are replacing. They work for 6-9 months and you won’t have to remember to take a pill or apply a cream.
Many patients who have been on creams, pills and patches discover that their hormone treatment can create side effects over time. Non-pellet methods provide an irregular dosing amount, which produces a roller coaster-like effect in the body.
Over time, extra hormones that are stored in the body can spill back into your system and cause a progressive overdosing. This can cause a cascade of imbalances that you were trying to treat in the first place!
Pellets deliver a steady and measured dose of the hormones your body needs, only as it needs them.

Many of the symptoms of male hormonal imbalances come on very gradually. You may not notice them at first, but as more symptoms appear and become worse over time, they do become apparent.

And through proper treatment, these symptoms will often disappear and bring about a healthier, younger you.

I wish I had had come to BBMD before I started HRT at ``another`` place.I wish I had had come to BBMD before I started HRT at “another” place that used injections weekly. The pellet platform works best for me and doesn’t require weekly visits and multiple injection sites which add infection risk and pain. The staff here make it a point to treat me with the utmost respect and privacy – and remember my name and history making me feel like one of the family instead of just another client. I couldn’t be more satisfied and highly recommend you consider Balanced Body MD for your health needs.
