Think About Being Happy
Hormones not only impact how you feel physically – these also help regulate your mood and optimize your brain activity. Both male and female brains require certain levels of the male sex hormone testosterone (in balance with estrogen) to produce the chemical compound known as serotonin, which helps people maintain emotional balance. If your brain cannot produce sufficient quantities of this important neurotransmitter, it will negatively impact your mood, memory, clarity, social behavior, and much more. Also, hormonal deficiencies have been linked to increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease in both men and women.
At Birken Medical Aesthetics, we are experts in all aspects of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for both male and female clients suffering from poor mental clarity and moodiness. In addition to these emotional consequences, reduced hormonal levels in the brain can lead to have physical problems as well. We begin treatment with specific blood testing designed to detect sub-optimal levels of adrenal, thyroid, and male/female sex hormones. Then, we review your results and decide on the proper method of treatment. Bioidentical hormones can be administered as a topical cream, oral capsule, injection, or time-release pellet inserted under the skin.
All of our bioidentical hormones are 100% natural, and as the name suggests, are identical to those chemicals produced naturally in your body.
