As hormone production declines with age in both men and women, the acceleration of the aging process begins. Significant changes in the body occur resulting in lack of energy, weight gain, difficulty sleeping and loss of libido. These and many other symptoms of aging can be alleviated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). According to extensive medical literature, BHRT can prevent many of the diseases associated with aging, including cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke and senility.
BHRT is very different from synthetic hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormones are derived from plants and are biologically identical to the molecular structure of hormones found in the human body. Many of the commonly prescribed synthetic hormones introduce foreign substances that produce toxic by-products, which can cause a wide array of side effects and more serious conditions . The primary reason for replacing your hormones is because of all the protective benefits from cancer and cardiovascular disease.
The goal of BHRT is to maintain hormones at appropriate and medically sound levels necessary to alleviate symptoms and prevent diseases associated with aging. Knowing which hormones to replenish and how to adjust these for optimum results requires specialized training. Dr. Lu-Jean Feng has undergone extensive training in the art and science of diagnosing, treating, monitoring and adjusting bio-identical hormone levels. Comprehensive lab work is performed to provide Dr. Feng with a blueprint of what is going on inside your body. Once your hormones are prescribed, lab work will be repeated every 6 weeks to monitor your levels. Dr. Feng’s goal is to optimize your levels to put you back to where you use to be when you were in your mid to late 20’s. This is the time in life where most people look and feel their very best.
