Most people are aware of the hormone imbalances that women may experience but, men suffer from low hormone levels too! Dropping levels of male hormones causes more than sexual problems. It can also affect your mood and concentration. I am pleased to offer men all natural bio-identical hormone pellet replacement therapy.

Men may lose 1 to 3% of their testosterone by the age of 30. Decreased levels of hormones in men can be detrimental contributing to more serious long-term health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Many men do not realize that low testosterone levels may be part of the reason for the changes that they feel.

Signs and symptoms of low T (testosterone) maybe loss of mean bone and muscle mass, weight gain with increased fat mass, loss of hair, changes in their skin, mental and/or physical fatigue, mood disorders, signs of depression, memory loss, insomnia and sexual dysfunction with loss of sexual desire and erectile dysfunction. My male patients come in and tell me that they get tired much sooner during the day at work than they used to, just feel rundown and have a beer belly they never had.

At Schultis Healthcare, we have been treating men for years with services including laser hair removal, tattoo removal and aesthetic procedures. Several years ago, when I trained with Hormone Therapy Centers of America, I realized I was uniquely qualified as a hormone expert to help men as well deal with hormone imbalance. I have found a great deal of satisfaction in helping men who many times will not seek medical attention and suffer in silence. We perform a full consultation to understand each man's own individual situation including a blood panel with a PSA level, and take a complete history including documentation of medical conditions and medications. We can then determine if indeed his testosterone levels may be contributing to his symptomatology and determine what dosages of bio-identical hormone pellet therapy would be best for him. Many men have tried non bio-identical forms of testosterone and have found them to not be useful, or inconvenient to use a daily gel or receive regular intramuscular injections.

Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy is a quick, minimally painful procedure where small individualized dosages of bioidentical hormone pellets are inserted under the skin. Fortunately for men, they may only require two insertions six months apart per year. We follow lab work as needed for safety and fine-tuning treatment. We also encourage regular check-ups with their primary care physicians and or urologists.

Many of our men also take advantage of another procedure performed here at Schultis Healthcare called The Priapus® Shot. This painless and safe procedure involves the use of PRP (platelet rich plasma) obtained from a man's own blood to enhance his sexual experience by rejuvenating his penis with his own growth factors leading to improved blood flow and stem cell proliferation.

Of course, not all people will experience the same results with any treatment and not everyone is a good candidate for hormone replacement. However, a most men with low testosterone do feel like their old selves again with hormone replacement therapy. And, research indicates that they are healthier with normal hormone balance. This has been a very fulfilling experience for me.

So, if you or someone you know may suffer with hormone imbalance from low testosterone levels, please call my office for consultation and discover if bioidentical hormone pellet therapy may be right for you!

Hormone Imbalance in Men

Testosterone is very important in the physiology of numerous organ systems of the body. The serum testosterone concentration declines as part of the process of aging and even the slightest change can have a very big impact on a man's overall health and well-being. With low testosterone levels (sometimes referred to as Andropause or Low T) you may experience some of these symptoms including: Fatigue Mood Disturbances Sexual Dysfunction (decreased libido, changes in erectile and ejaculatory quality) Loss of Bone and Muscle Mass Loss of Body Hair Increased Body Fat Hot Flashes Hormonal imbalance can also be responsible for new on-set medical problems such as: Central obesity (beer belly) Elevated triglycerides/cholesterol Insulin resistance Type II diabetes Hypertension Cardiovascular disease Andropause typically occurs between the ages of 40 and 60, but, is seen in men as young as thirty. Not every man gets every symptom. Hormone replacement pellet therapy is not recommended for men who may plan on fatherhood.

Bio-identical hormone replacement pellet therapy is an all-natural treatment that delivers a constant level of hormones which helps in alleviating many of the symptoms of Low T while helping to improve a man's overall health.
