in Men

Freedom Healthcare is a leading provider of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men in Utah. BHRT in men, typically focuses on the balance of testosterone levels. However, men also benefit from a variety of hormone replacement therapies such as DHEA, melatonin and thyroid. These hormones will optimize the benefits of testosterone replacement therapy, increase energy levels, enhance mood and improve the ability to concentrate.

Testosterone

Replacement Therapy

FHC treats hypogonadism (low testosterone) in three ways. The first treatment is Clomid, or clomiphene. Clomiphene triggers the brain’s pituitary gland to secrete the optimal amount of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), which increases testosterone production by the testes. The second method FHC uses to optimize the body’s testosterone levels, is human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injections. hCG injections directly stimulate the testes to produce testosterone. These first two methods often produce insufficient testosterone levels on their own.

However, Clomid and hCG can be used in conjunction with testosterone supplementation itself, the third method, to help maintain optimal testicular function. Testosterone supplementation provides patients with bioidentical testosterone, which is molecularly equivalent to the hormone naturally present in the male body. Bioidentical testosterone also eliminates the negative side effects of synthetic hormone replacement therapy. FHC practitioners administer testosterone in the form of transdermal creams, subcutaneous pellets, intramuscular injections and subcutaneous injections. The method of treatment varies for each individual. Patients may require one or a combination of treatments for optimal results.

Health Benefits for Men

Testosterone

A low testosterone level is a condition common among men as they age, known as hypogonadism. FHC treats this health condition with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). The benefits of testosterone replacement therapy include improvements in mood, energy, libido, erectile function, cognitive function, exercise tolerance and recovery. In addition, optimal testosterone levels reduce obesity, depression, anxiety, prostate cancer, diabetes and dementia.

Melatonin

Melatonin is commonly known for its ability to regulate sleep patterns. However, this is only one of its important functions. This hormone plays an important role in all of the body’s biorhythms and is a strong antioxidant which helps to fight cancer. In addition, research shows melatonin can increase longevity.

DHEA

DHEA boosts the production of the body’s white blood cells which fight diseases of every kind. This results in a powerhouse of an immune system with the ability to fight common infections and cancer. In addition, it has been shown to reduce depression, lupus, heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and signs of aging. DHEA also delays the onset of chronic illnesses and increases lean muscle mass.

Thyroid

Thyroid disease and deficiencies are common, especially in people over 45. However, these conditions are treatable with BHRT. Replacing essential thyroid hormones can help to stimulate metabolic rate and weight loss, improve mood and energy, decrease fatigue, keep the skin healthy and enhance reflexes.
