It’s not easy to live day to day with the many symptoms that come with the general aging process. Thankfully the practitioners at Rocky hormone replacementRiver Med Spa-The Fountain Clinic in Rocky River, OH, offer a solution called hormone replacement therapy, for both men and women. Find out more about this anti-aging treatment and how it can help you or someone you love get back to your life.

What Does Hormone Replacement Do?
Hormone replacement therapy helps patients rejuvenate themselves when they’re feeling the many adverse effects of aging. It traditionally has been used to help women who are struggling with the symptoms of menopause. However, hormone therapy can also help men restore their vigor, energy, and muscle function by supplementing naturally occurring hormones.

How Does Hormone Replacement Work?
First, you’ll visit a practitioner at The Fountain Clinic in Rocky River for a consultation to explain your concerns and talk more about the therapy, including any risks. The next step is a hormone evaluation lab panel, which will tell your doctor if you’re a candidate for this program. At the next appointment, your doctor will consult with you about your results and do a thorough physical, which will include an EKG. Once you pass your physical, you’ll receive a prescription for the hormones to take as suggested by your doctor.

Why Should You Choose Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider hormone replacement therapy:

  • You're feeling tired or fatigued often and need more energy.
  • You're a woman going through menopause, experiencing hot flashes and mood swings.
  • You want to lower your risk of osteoporosis (may improve bone density).
  • You’re a man interested in improving libido or reproductive ability.
  • You have concerns about aging skin or lack of muscle tone.

Hormone Replacement TherapyAs we age, it is perfectly normal for women and men alike to notice natural changes in their everyday lives. Many can be attributed to hormone levels lowering, causing metabolism to slow and energy levels to deplete. Luckily, The Fountain Clinic just outside of Cleveland, OH can help you feel like your younger self again using a treatment called hormone replacement therapy.

What is hormone replacement therapy?
To understand hormone replacement therapy, picture the hormones as messengers, sent through the bloodstream to stimulate organ tissues as they are needed. As we age, the number of these messengers tends to decrease, along with energy levels. Hormone replacement therapy uses bio-identical hormones, exactly the same in molecular makeup as the hormones our own bodies produce, to give you the boost you need to feel great.

Who is a good candidate for hormone replacement therapy? 
Age plays a large factor in candidacy for hormone replacement therapy, as it is most effective once hormone levels are decreased significantly during middle age. Women who have had a hysterectomy and people who have experienced certain types of cancers or clotting disorders are not good candidates to receive this therapy.

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy? 
The Fountain Clinic’s hormone replacement therapy is designed to get you to your most energetic, focusing on balancing hormones to an average 35-year-old person’s levels. Once the imbalances are leveled out, the patient often feels a heightened sense of focus and energy, and the ability to get through the day as efficiently as they did in the younger days.

Dr. Curt Birchall, M.D. of The Fountain Clinic in Independence, OH is board certified by the American Board of Anti-Aging and has many years of experience making his patients look and feel younger. If you are in the Cleveland area and want to get back the feeling of your younger days, Dr. Birchall can help. Call (216) 503-8517 to schedule an appointment for a consultation today!
