At Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center located in Roswell, Georgia, Dr. Marcia Byrd, M.D., is a highly-skilled physician who specializes in medically safe and effective techniques to revitalize and rejuvenate her patients—enhancing not only their outward aesthetic appearance but also improving their physical and mental health and emotional well-being. For men, that means bioidentical hormone therapy (bioidentical HRT).
Hormones are natural compounds in the body that stimulate cellular reactions and regulate the body’s systems to maintain a state of homeostatic equilibrium. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the science of replenishing vital hormones that have become depleted with age and are no longer being produced by the body in sufficient quantities. The goals of bio-identical HRT are to alleviate the symptoms caused by the decrease in natural hormone production, and to replenish the most important hormones in our bodies to levels that would be expected in a healthy, young adult male, before the onset of aging and chronic illnesses.
This is not traditional HRT
In order for a replacement hormone to function exactly as the original hormone, the chemical and molecular structure must precisely match the original. Unfortunately, synthetic hormones utilized in traditional HRT are produced by changing the molecular structure of the natural hormone to create a product that can be patented by a manufacturer.
This means that synthetic hormones are not exact replicas of the body’s own hormones, and these structural differences may be responsible for the side effects that are experienced when synthetic hormones are used for replacement therapy. Compounding this problem is the fact that synthetic HRT is only offered in fixed doses, which does not allow for the customization of individualized treatment plans.
Conversely, bio-identical hormones have the same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that are made by the human body. At Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center, we only utilize bio-identical hormones in our treatments, and we customize your treatment type, strength, and dose to work with your specific chemical makeup. The precise components of your therapy are determined after your initial consultation, baseline hormone level assessment, and evaluation of your laboratory testing results. We then collaborate with compounding pharmacies to create a prescription created just for you, in order maximize treatment results.
Schedule a consultation
During your initial consultation, Dr. Byrd will conduct an in-depth assessment and examination of your current symptoms and medical history and order the appropriate laboratory tests necessary to evaluate your current baseline hormone levels. After analyzing the results, Dr. Byrd creates a customized hormone supplementation strategy tailored to restore your body to a state of physical health and vitality.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy prescribed by an experienced, trusted physician
When administered in their bio-identical form, within the context of a customized treatment plan created by a knowledgeable medical professional, HGH and testosterone supplementation is completely safe. There is no scientific evidence correlating bio-identical HGH or testosterone to any kind of cancer. Contrarily, bio-identical HGH and testosterone have been shown to improve the overall functioning of the immune system, and to help prevent the onset of many diseases traditionally associated with aging. Dr. Byrd prioritizes the safety and health of her patients above all else, and diligently adheres to all standardized safety protocols and treatment guidelines.
Beneficial on several levels
Bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy for men has been shown to ameliorate the symptoms of low-testosterone levels, including diminished libido and sense of vitality, erectile dysfunction, reduced muscle mass and bone density, depression, and anemia. It has also been shown to have a positive impact on patients’ mental and emotional health and can enhance confidence, energy, mood, and male libido.
Benefits of bioidentical human growth hormone
According to an article in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, results from a ten-year clinical study demonstrated that patients treated with HGH replacement therapy experienced a number of health and wellness benefits that the control group patients (who did not receive HGH supplementation) did not:
- Diminished plaque in arteries
- Improvement in cholesterol levels
- Increased muscle mass
- Decreased visceral body fat percentage
- Fewer Strokes
- Enhanced sense of well-being
- Higher bone mass with greater mineral density
Hormone therapy for men has many benefits. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Byrd to find out how it can help you.
