Hormones are powerful chemical messengers within the body that regulate its day to day functions. These include mental and physical wellbeing, sleep patterns and sex drive.
Naturally, as we age our hormone levels decrease. This results in unwanted symptoms that can lead to reduced quality of life and accelerate the aging process. Bioidentical hormone treatment aims to replace these depleted hormones and restore the body to its optimum function.
Some of these unwanted symptoms are listed below.

Symptoms of hormone deficiency in men
