Menopause & Andropause
Hormone levels have the ability to affect growth, metabolism, behavior, and immune system functions. When essential hormones are lost over time, they can have a negative affect on energy levels, and personal well being.
This is most easily seen by Menopause in women in which medicine has recognized for many years. The male counterpart, Andropause, is now being recognized as well.

Why is hormone loss occurring to me?
Our own hormone production has declined rapidly in the last 20 years or so. Some of the more prominent reasons are:
- Contamination of our food supply with artificial hormones in beef, chickens, pork, etc.
- Pesticides that are absorbed into our food chain.
- Parabens, the preservatives that are in our everyday toiletry items such as shampoo, deodorant, and make-up are really hormone imitators that easily get transferred into our bodies transdermally and alter your body’s balance.
- Plastics, one of our most common used products of the modern world, contain Parabens, so even drinking bottled water adds to these imitators to your body.
- Using plastics in microwave ovens can also cause these hormone imitators to get into the food you cook.
Our physicians and staff are trained in the latest medical techniques and treatments; however, when necessary, they may consult with specialists to ensure quality and continuity of care.
