Just like their female counterparts, men also drop in hormone production at mid-life. Fortunately, men can also benefit with hormone balancing treatments at EverVitalMD. Male menopause (officially named “Andropause”) signals the retreat of androgens, the male hormones DHEA and Testosterone, which are the largest force that drives both mental and physical energy in men. Andropause may not be so commonly diagnosed due to its subtle signs in contrast to the roller coaster effects so commonly seen in a woman’s symptoms. The great news is we can make subtle adjustments over time to bring back a balanced and optimal state.
EverVitalMD utilizes its integrative and preventative approach to look at the cause through testing, holistic and natural treatments as well as bio-identical hormone therapy. We also incorporate various preventative treatments such as stress reduction, exercise, natural therapies and various organic foods. The end goal is optimal hormone balance based on each individual’s needs by listening to how you feel and also optimal lab values.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
The term “bioidentical” means the hormone molecule is structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body. Bioidentical hormones are available in many forms including patches, topical creams, injections, and pellets inserted under the skin. Some are available from pharmaceutical companies and are FDA approved and some are specially prepared by a compounding pharmacy.
Platelet Rich Plasma Injections
EverVitalMD offers a cutting edge alternative to invasive surgical procedures in the comfort of our office. PRP utilizes your body’s own platelets from your blood to aid in the healing process and offers most patients significant relief for joint pain, anti-aging, sexual wellness, and hair growth.
How will PRP help me?
Your blood is composed of the four main components: white blood cells, red blood cells, plasma and platelets. PRP therapy utilizes platelets to potentially heal chronic injuries and relieve pain.
Platelets are like the soldiers of cells that float around in your blood. The main job of platelets is to control bleeding. Platelets are also responsible for thousands of growth factors that aid in tissue repair and healing of lesions. A specialized centrifuge is used to to separate the platelets in your blood and then Dr. Woodward injects them into targeted points in the injured areas. By doing this, your platelet soldiers go to work by stimulating the body’s own healing process which can decrease pain and overall inflammation of joints. PRP is recommended for many areas of concern from ankles to knees, tennis elbow to wrists, shoulder pain and plantar fasciitis. Also, PRP has been shown to aid in erectile dysfunction, female orgasms, urine leakage, nonsurgical facelifts and hair growth.
