Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy New York
by Robert A. Jason, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.
I LIVE and BELIEVE in the POWER of Natural or Bio-Identical Hormones!! As a Board Certified Gynecologist for over 24 years, I have been witness to and have lived first hand, the healing and anti-aging benefits of Bio-Identical Hormones. Additionally, as a practicing Cosmetic Gynecologist for over 10 years, I have witnessed the incredible benefits of Natural Hormonal Replacement in the surgical-healing process. Gynecologists around the world also attest to the benefits of Bio-Identical Hormones, more particularly with the use of Estrogen for Menopausal symptoms. The healing power of Estrogen for women with atrophic vaginitis which is dry, contracted, and atrophic never ceases to amaze Doctors. With merely two weeks of Hormonal therapy, the sexual canal can experience benefits which include a more robust, moist, distensible, natural, and accommodating canal.
I have witnessed in my own practice the amazing healing power in those patients who are 65 and older. Those same 65 year old patients, who traditionally come to me for routine maintenance, are now coming to my cosmetic practice for Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation (LVR) and Designer Laser Vaginoplasty (DLV). You may be asking yourself, why would a 65 year old patient need LVR or DLV? The answer: Hormonal Therapy. Historically, the 65 year old patient wouldn’t need these procedures due to decreased libido, however, because of Hormonal Therapy; the 65 year old now has a robust, moist, distensible, natural, and accommodating sexual canal and the libido of a 25 year old! As of 2013, there are over 200 articles written in peer-reviewed medical journals which provide proof of the benefits of Natural Hormonal Replacement as opposed to the deleterious effects from the lack of Hormonal Replacement and use of synthetic hormones.
Unfortunately, not enough physicians understand the benefits of optimizing natural hormonal levels. The popular belief amongst these physicians is that the body goes through a natural aging process, a sort of “nature will take its own course” approach. They couldn’t be more off. With the optimization of your hormonal levels you can now begin to feel like you did in your 20′s and 30′s when you were in the peak of your mental, physical and immunological state.
It is popular belief that there are tremendous benefits to exercise and supplementation, which for the most part is true. However, there is nothing that is nearly as powerful and beneficial to treating the vagaries of the aging process and the prevention of disease than the optimization of our own natural hormones. In Medical school we are taught how to treat disease. In Gynecology we are taught how to diagnose disease as early as possible with pap smears and mammograms. With Natural, or Bio-Identical Hormones we are taught how to prevent disease. Please read below the benefits of particular hormones.
DHEA is an important adrenal hormone that protects our blood vessels, immune system, and bones. It is also a precursor to make all of your other hormones.
Natural Thyroid Hormone helps improve metabolism and symptoms like fatigue, energy levels, cold intolerance and thinning hair.
Testosterone protects against deterioration of muscles, ligaments, joints, and tendons. It is also important to maintain muscle, which maintains metabolism and facilitate weight loss. It is also important to maintain skin thickness and prevent osteoporosis. It helps improve sexual performance and libido.
Melatonin is an antioxidant hormone to help improve your sleep. By improving your sleep, so does your immunity, energy and fatigue levels.
Estrogen is important to protect against heart attack, strokes, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and urogenital atrophy. The natural estrogen prescribed is derived from soy and is different than the synthetic estrogen that has been associated with a multitude of problems. If transdermal estrogen is prescribed, there are no increased clotting tendencies and is safe to take even if women have a congenital clotting disorder.
Progesterone balances or opposes estrogen. It also protects against uterine cancer, breast cancer, and osteoporosis. The natural progesterone prescribed is derived from yams and is different than the synthetic Provera(R) that has been associated with cancer.
Natural Hormonal Therapy is a great start to preventing disease and optimizing health.
