Robert Zimmerman, M.D. – Texas Bioidentical Hormone Doctor
Texas Bioidentical Hormone Doctor Robert Zimmerman, M.D. has found that long-term benefits and improved health can be achieved through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. He has implemented subcutaneous bio-equivalent hormone therapy into his practice to better treat his patients who suffer from the devastating effects of hormone deficiencies and age-related symptoms including menopause. He has discovered that bioidentical hormone pellets are the superior choice in hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is for men and women. For men, biologically equivalent Hormone Replacement therapy achieves the sustained levels of testosterone that would be produced by normally functioning testicles. This form of therapy is the only kind that produces the natural level of hormone that men need. Because the testosterone used is totally natural, it is ideal for men wanting the benefits of a bio-equivalent hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
Symptoms of testosterone deficiency in men include fatigue, lack of mental acuity, loss of libido, and difficulty achieving, or sustaining erection.
What is Bio-Equivalent Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a prescription alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy (conjugated estrogens, medroxyprogesterone, etc.).
Bioidentical medications are plant-derived, and chemically changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what your body would naturally produce. BHRT is customizable; in other words, it can be adjusted to fit your needs, unlike conventional HRT, which has a few standard dosage strengths.
What are the goals of BHRT?
- Alleviate symptoms caused by the natural decrease in hormone production in the body
- Reestablish the individual’s hormonal balance
- Provide protective benefits that were originally provided by the body’s naturally occurring hormones
What are the benefits of BHRT?
BHRT offers a number of health-related benefits:
- Helps in the prevention of Osteoporosis and restoration of bone strength
- Protection against heart disease and stroke
- Reduced hot flashes and reduced vaginal dryness
- Muscle mass and strength are better maintained
- Improvement in cholesterol levels
- Risk of depression reduced
- Reduced risk of breast and endometrial cancer
- Improved libido
- Prevention of senility and Alzheimer’s Disease
- Improved sleep
- Mood, concentration, and memory become better
- Far fewer unwanted effects than synthetic hormones
