Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Although most of us are aware that women’s hormones change with age, not everyone knows that the same is true for men as well! Hormone production slows down with each passing decade after age 30, so that a 70 year old man is producing considerably fewer hormones than he was producing 50 years earlier. Similar to the effects of menopause in women, “andropause” in men can have a profound effect on their daily lives as they age—often manifesting in fatigue, weight gain in the abdominal region, deterioration of muscle tone, and moodiness. Fortunately, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men offers a precise, individualized approach to male hormone therapy, matching the chemical compounds and dosages needed to provide optimal results for each individual. At American Integrative Pharmacy, we will work closely with you and your doctor to develop a precisely-formulated hormone replacement program, tailored specifically for your individual needs.
We prepare custom compounded bioidentical hormone medications as directed by licensed healthcare practitioners. Our hormone medications are made with high quality plant-derived ingredients that are identical in structure to hormones present in the human body.

- The Advantages of Bio-Identical Hormones
Hormone therapy can produce profound benefits for men as they age, allowing them to continue to experience life with the same energy, musculature, and drive as they once did. And although many generic hormones are available on the market today, they are not formulated to correspond with each patient’s needs in terms of dosage and molecular compatibility. With bio-identical hormone therapy, each patient’s personal hormone levels and composition have been carefully analyzed, allowing practitioners to develop a customized pharmaceutical compound more closely aligned with the hormones naturally produced by the patient’s body—thus ensuring a natural transition and physiological acceptance of the therapy. In addition to acquiring a good chemical match with each patient’s individual hormonal needs, the dosage of bio-identical hormones can be tailored precisely to affect the optimal benefit for each patient—without administering too much or too little of any compound. This customized approach to hormone therapy is critical when smoothing the transitions of aging back towards the more vibrant and youthfully energetic person you have always been.
