In our youth-obsessed society, men and women alike feel enormous pressure to defy the aging process. A lot of good has come from that attitude: many types of physical and mental decline once believed to be an inevitable part of getting older can now be slowed or even prevented by living a healthy lifestyle. But sooner or later, most men will feel like they are losing their spark—in the weight room, the boardroom, and the bedroom. We are bombarded my messages suggesting that all these struggles are the result of low levels of testosterone. Many advertisers imply that testosterone therapy is a fountain of youth.

No medical practitioner would deny that testosterone plays a large role in a man’s sex drive and overall vitality. Remember, though, that the body makes use of 50 or more hormones on a daily basis. Assuming that all of a man’s problems can be blamed on reduced levels of one single hormone is not just bad science; it is literally bad medicine that can put a man’s overall health at risk. Sex drive is the result of many complex interactions within the body. Restoring a man’s libido requires taking the time to fully understand his body’s chemistry and the many factors at play.

Healthline.com reports that traditional testosterone therapy hasn’t been shown to offer any benefits to a healthy man, and can even be dangerous if the man was misdiagnosed with low testosterone levels. Before any man starts hormone therapy, he should meet with a practitioner who carefully analyzes hormone levels to determine whether testosterone is even an issue. The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy offers Saliva hormone testing as a safe, easy way to unravel the mysteries of a man’s decline in health.

If testosterone is not the root of your struggles, we will determine what is. If you would benefit from a replenishment of testosterone, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that our Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy (BIHT) uses only hormones that are chemically identical to those produced by your own body, maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks. Give us a call today and we can talk you through the whole process.
