WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, helps to restore and maintain your natural, youthful hormone levels. The hormones we use are exact replicas of the hormones that your body produced when you were younger, comprised of the identical chemical structure, now safely re-introduced into your body to restore your health, vitality, and function. Since they are natural and identical to what is already in your body, they have very few side effects, unlike synthetic hormones.

At GLRM, we can help you improve your quality of life with our BHRT treatment for low testosterone. You’ll first talk to Dr Mahl about your symptoms and concerns, and then we will take a full medical history, followed by a physical exam and blood testing to determine your current testosterone level. We will then implement a program that includes BHRT, and you will return to our office for regular follow-up visits so that we can monitor your progress. You’ll soon feel more like your old self, and will reap the benefits of this hormone replacement therapy: increased energy and libido, renewed strength, and great mental focus.
BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT) FOR WOMEN
As women age, their hormones become unbalanced as certain hormonal levels begin to drop. As a result, women suffer a host of symptoms relating to deficiencies and imbalances of estrogen, testosterone and progesterone, among other hormones. This can cause women to experience hot flashes, weight gain, decreased libido, insomnia, etc. GLRM provides a safe and effective hormone therapy that can restore your original hormone levels, while helping to erase the many acute and chronic conditions that women experience due to drops in hormone levels.
WHAT IS TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, helps men regain and then maintain their natural, optimal testosterone level. The testosterone that we give you contains the same chemical structure as the hormones that are already in your body. Now, we are able to re-introduce them into your body, where they will immediately begin to improve your health and energy. Since these testosterone supplements are identical to the hormones you already have, they have almost no side effects.
WHAT IS HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE (HGH)?
HGH is a protein hormone which, like testosterone and estrogen, decreases with age. Starting in our 20s, HGH secretion declines 10-20% each decade. By age 50, you only secrete 25% as much as the average 20-year-old. By age 60, you produce very little HGH. This decrease in HGH speeds up the aging process and increase the symptoms of Adult Onset Growth Hormone Deficiency. In women, it signals menopause and tin men, it signals male menopause, or andropause.
HGH is critical for tissue healing, muscle growth, bone strength, brain function, physical and mental health, energy, and metabolism. A shortage of HGH accelerates processes that most people would prefer to slow down.
