Bioidentical Hormones and Age Management Medicine in Houston and The Woodlands, Texas

Why do we age?  Certainly, lifestyle and genetics play a significant role, but declining hormones, increased oxidative stress from normal metabolism and exposure to toxins in the soil, air, and water, as well as poor nutrition and reduced exercise contribute to age related problems such as fatigue, weight gain, moodiness, poor sleep, reduced libido and sexual performance, loss of muscle tone, as well as lowered endurance and stamina.  Additionally, there is a an increased risk for chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiac disorders, arthritis, and dementia.

Dr. Randy Birken, a Cenegenics Medical Institute trained and board certified physician, specializes in bioidentical hormone optimization, proper vitamin supplementation, weight management, and chelation for toxic heavy metals.  Testing includes both reproductive and metabolic hormones, heavy metals such as lead, aluminum, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium, and nutritional evaluation.

“By bringing low hormone levels back to optimal values, educating effective exercise and proper nutrition, and ridding the body of toxic heavy metals along with good vitamin supplementation, patients can experience improved energy, better sleep, weight reduction, enhanced libido, and improved memory and mood while reducing risks for chronic aged diseases,” Dr. Birken said.

Hormones can be given orally, as creams, injections, or pellets.  The SottoPelle® method of hormone pellet therapy provides a consistent and even level of hormones for both women and men for many months. Studies indicate improved wellness and possible increased longevity.  This, combined with IV nutrition and IV chelation/detoxification may decrease the risk for aged related disorders.

Bioidentical and Natural Hormones for Women and Men in Houston and The Woodlands, Texas

Why do we lose muscle tone, endurance, sexual libido, and motivation as we age?  Why do we become fatigued, struggle with sleep, gain weight, develop more aches and pains, and have moodiness with age?

“It’s the decrease in hormones that leads to age related problems,” Dr. Randy Birken, a board certified and Cenegenics Medical Institute physician said. “And many age related diseases, such as diabetes, heart problems, arthritis, dementia, and possibly the increased risk for cancers are due to hormone deficiencies.”

Bioidentical hormones are molecular in structure to natural hormones and are not synthetic.  “That’s the difference,” Dr. Birken continued.  “They are two different kinds of hormones – synthetic hormones do not have the same physiological effects or safety compared to bioidentical hormones.”

Once hormones are optimized in a woman or man, there is improved energy, weight loss, better muscle tone, enhanced libido/sexual performance, more skin collagen, stabilized moods and sleep, as well as overall heightened vitality.  Even younger adults, and especially women on birth control hormones, have improvement if levels are low.

Dr. Birken uses oral, creams, and hormone pellets to raise deficient levels.  “The transformations we see in body contour, mood, motivation, memory, and energy is impressive,” Dr. Birken said.  “It’s the most gratifying medical service I have offered to my patients in 31 years of private practice and as Clinical Assistant Professor at Baylor College of Medicine, especially that we may be enhancing health,  wellness, and longevity.
