Think Testosterone is for Men Only? THINK AGAIN!

Testosterone. Most people immediately think of several words and images when that word is mentioned. The manly hormone. Big, powerful, muscular men. Bravery. Machismo. Masculinity. Toxic-masculinity. Testosterone rage, fueled by testosterone-loaded men. Confidence bordering on cockiness. Aggression. Risk-taking.

All of these words can and do apply to men. And it’s true. Excess testosterone can, in some men, be detrimental. But in the vast majority of men, testosterone is a force for good. Protecting the vulnerable, erecting skyscrapers, building businesses, exploring all four corners of the planet, and being a strong and steady influence for their families and communities are all the result of testosterone.

The consequences of low testosterone levels (aka “Low-T) in men can become severe. Here are a few of them:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weakened, shrinking muscles
  • Dry, wrinkled, weathered skin
  • Weight gain and accumulation of fat that often leads to obesity
  • Mental confusion
  • Depression
  • Chronic inflammation that causes incremental joint aches and muscle pains
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • A lack of libido
  • A weakened immune system

It should be evident that these afflictions are not things that men would ever stand in line for. As a result, the demand for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has exploded in recent years. When applied under medical

supervision, TRT has helped millions of men slow the aging express and experience a renaissance of youthful exhilaration and vigor.

But what about women? Do they also need testosterone?

YES! This may come as a surprise to men and women alike. But it’s true: testosterone plays a crucial role in women’s health. Most of the above-mentioned afflictions suffered by men with Low-T also affect women.

As women age, their levels of testosterone recede, similar to men, especially during their menstrual cycle. As much of a shock as it sounds to many women, they require testosterone to maintain their libidos and produce new blood cells. Healthy testosterone levels in women are lower than in men, but the hormone is still vital for women.

One area in particular that concerns women are the dreaded osteoporosis. The disease weakens the bones and may lead to breaks and brittleness, two conditions that can cause a cascade of other health issues. Nutrition and strength training are two crucial and practical tools to prevent osteoporosis. However, a lack of testosterone and hormonal imbalances can also affect bone health.

Chronic fatigue as a result of Low-T does not give women a break. As in men, tiredness is often a symptom of hormone depletion. Exhaustion can cause irritability, making exercise a burdensome chore, which affects bone weakness.

Testosterone is vital for building muscles and retaining strength. Again, it is a simple formula: Low-T = less energy to exercise = less muscle and strength = increased chance of developing osteoporosis.

Another symptom of Low-T is weight gain and increasing adipose tissue (fat). This condition on its own can exacerbate the other issues for women with Low-T. Depression is also linked to Low-T, and when that is added to the mix, motivation and energy often crash and burn, which feeds the other adverse developments.

As if all of this weren’t enough, add insomnia and a vanishing libido to the gifts from Low-T, resulting in a severely decreased quality of life.

But it doesn’t have to end this way.

At our clinic, we recognize that women, while having gender-specific health concerns, share many of the same issues that men experience as a direct result of disappearing testosterone.

The good news is that this condition can be treated. You don’t have to go it alone! We will measure your current testosterone levels and create a comprehensive Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) treatment regimen that will be developed for you and only you.

We never use a “cookie-cutter” approach. No two humans are identical, nor should their treatments be.

In addition to our cutting-edge hormone therapies, we also offer detailed nutritional programs, sleep recommendations, what supplements to take, and which ones to avoid, the importance of hydration, controlling stress, physical fitness routines, and ways to remove toxins from your environment.

All of these additions are geared toward maximizing the benefits of our hormone therapies.
