Hormonal changes are a natural part of the male aging process. Unfortunately, though, those changes often elicit bothersome symptoms that for many, seem altogether inexplicable. At Arijai Aesthetics, we deeply understand the negative repercussions of hormonal decline and how they can affect both your physical and psychological health. That’s why we provide bioidentical hormonal therapy as a natural treatment for endocrine imbalance.
Below, we explain what hormonal therapy is, how it can help symptoms of endocrine imbalance, and whether it’s a treatment option you should consider.
What Is Male Hormonal Therapy?
Hormone therapy for men is designed to administer one or more replacement hormones, with testosterone being the most common. Replacement hormones can be administered via injection, patch, or subcutaneous pellet insertion — at Arijai Aesthetics, we use the BioTE method of pellet therapy. BioTE pellet therapy involves bioidentical hormones only, not the traditional synthetic form of the body’s naturally produced hormones.
Bioidentical replacement hormones are designed to function within the male body just as a man’s naturally produced hormones do. Technically, the body cannot distinguish between the hormones it produces endogenously and those contained within a bioidentical hormone replacement pellet.
How Can Hormonal Therapy Help Symptoms of Aging in Men?
Though hormonal decline is often associated with the aging process and many men believe endocrine imbalance doesn’t occur until mid-life, that’s not necessarily true for every male. Increasingly, men in their 20s and 30s are experiencing symptoms of endocrine imbalance.
Since the widely held opinion is that men don’t experience hormonal decline until later in life, many younger men tend to write these symptoms off as mysterious health issues with no known cause. Typically, that assumption is false.
Hormonal therapy can improve or even eliminate — depending on the individual — many of the aggravating, “mysterious” symptoms associated with endocrine imbalance. These symptoms include but are not limited to:
● Diminished sex drive
● Erectile dysfunction
● Loss of muscle mass
● Hair loss
● Gynecomastia (overdevelopment of breast tissue)
● Low sperm count
If you struggle with any of the above symptoms or seemingly inexplicable health issues despite living a healthy lifestyle, it may be time to speak with your doctor about hormone therapy. You’ll need to have comprehensive bloodwork done to determine if you suffer from an endocrine imbalance and are a candidate for treatment.
If your bloodwork confirms your hormone levels are not within the normal ranges, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team at Arijai Aesthetics. We can help you determine whether BioTE pellet therapy is right for you and guide you through the process of reclaiming your health.
