What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Portland Maine Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Doctor, Michael Bedecs, D.O. at The Age Management Center has helped many men and women to overcome the challenges associated with imbalanced hormones. Believe it or not, aging is directly related to a deficiency in hormones. In fact the truth is that we age because our hormones decline. Labeled as Adult Hormone Deficiency Syndrome (AHDS), this condition affects both men and women. Adult Hormone Deficiency Syndrome can affect anyone at any age.
The most common symptoms are:
- Decreased energy
- Reduced sex drive
- Reduction in muscle mass and strength
- Increased body fat and weight gain
- Mood swings
Hormone deficiencies affect the entire system and symptoms can also include:
- Memory loss
- Lack of endurance
- Bone degradation
- Loss of skin elasticity and compromised collagen accumulation
- Decreased joint flexibility
- Conditions related to impaired immune system
Women in menopause may have a host of symptoms including, hot flashes, low energy, fat accumulation and many more. Men in andropause may have erectile dysfunction, low sexual desire, less muscle, more fat, diminished energy and self-confidence.
Studies at Harvard University, the Mayo Clinic and many other prestigious research institutions have documented positive effects from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy on Adult Hormone Deficiency Syndrome (AHDS).
Although there are many products on the market that are supposed to help, using them indiscriminately can do more harm than good. A better way to deal with the decline in hormones is to conduct laboratory testing to determine hormone levels and then design a specific program for the individual.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy & How it Works
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy or Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medical treatment that optimizes hormones that are no longer being adequately produced by the body. Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate many different functions of our body systems. They are at optimal levels during the reproductive years and then begin to decline.
As those hormone levels decline, we begin to age. The hormones that need to be measured include the ovarian, adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary hormones, including testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, and growth hormone. Once measured, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement medications can be administered and monitored by a trained health care provider.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can replace the hormones your body normally loses with identical hormones at levels when many of us may have been in a healthier stage at an earlier time in life. These hormones come from plant sources and can replace those normally present inside your body, which results in re-balancing and restoration. A complete program of Anti-Aging therapy includes Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in conjunction with diet changes, exercise, and life style modifications.
AMC clients can expect:
- Increased energy level
- Restored sexual drive and interest
- Reduction in body fat

- In addition, other benefits include:

By recharging the hormones it is possible to maintain metabolic and endocrine functions at optimal levels so that each individual can benefit from a healthy and vigorous life.
Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for you?
Don’t make a decision until you read this important comprehensive report and get the truth about anti aging therapy and Bioidentical Hormone Therapy. Truths, Myths and Lies About Bioidentical Hormone Therapy by Portland Maine Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Doctor, Michael Bedecs, D.O. at The Age Management Center will give you insights into Natural Hormone Therapy.
Bioidentical Hormones are manufactured in a laboratory and are made from plant sources so that they have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by the human body. Even though Bioidentical Hormone Therapy has been around for years, most traditional medical practitioners are still unfamiliar with it. Now in contrast, drug companies manufacture synthetic hormones that are branded and intentionally different. Because companies are not able to patent the natural Bioidentical structure, they come up with synthetic options that they can patent. As a result, the synthetic proprietary brands are marketed as a one-size-fits-all dosage regime.
However, all bodies are not alike and the Age Management Center believes in an individualized approach using natural hormone therapy for the best results. Our anti aging clinic specializes in concierge medicine so you get personal attention and monitoring throughout the process. When considering hormone replacement therapy (HRT) we strongly believe it should begin with laboratory tests that include a comprehensive hormone panel. Each and every patient is monitored carefully throughout the process and we schedule regular follow-up hormone panels to make sure the natural hormone therapy is the best possible.
