Nature's Viagra: Why Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men Is Hotter Than Ever

Jacksonville, Fla. (PRWEB) May 21, 2009 --

All the attention celebrities have been giving bioidentical hormones in recent months is paying off for credible practitioners who can successfully prescribe the therapy as an anti-aging and menopausal treatment option. Bold-faced names such as Oprah, Dr. Phil, and Suzanne Somers have brought more attention to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) than ever before. Unfortunately, with all the focus on how bioidentical hormones help women going through "The Change," no one is letting the guys know that BHRT can also be their sexual salvation.

C.W. Randolph, Jr., M.D., board certified gynecologist and Medical Director of the Natural Hormone Institute, says the vast majority of the patients in his practice used to be women. But now, one in every three patients he sees is a man. "Men are excited to learn that they have options besides Viagra to maintain a healthy sex life as they get older," says Dr. Randolph. "And, because of recent medical studies released by Harvard University Medical School, the importance of reversing age-related testosterone level decline is being recognized as a key factor in promoting long-term prostate health."

Male patients who seek BHRT are primarily focused on erectile performance, says Randolph, but after their testosterone deficiency is treated with bioidentical testosterone they quickly reap the added benefits of increased energy, improved mood and more lean muscle mass.
Randolph, co-author of the bestselling book From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well, says "Growing research also suggests that low testosterone levels may be intimately linked with insulin resistance and its related conditions of metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is a group of risk factors - high blood pressure, high blood sugar, unhealthy cholesterol levels and abdominal fat - that make heart disease and diabetes more likely."

Randolph works with male patients by testing their hormone levels to determine individual hormone level deficiencies. Then a man's optimal hormone balance is restored via a personalized prescription of bioidentical testosterone. "A regimen of bioidentical testosterone is less expensive and more effective than Viagra, without the side effects. Even better, a man doesn't have to allow a 30 to 45 minute window before he can spring into action. Once lagging testosterone levels are replenished, a man can be as spontaneous in his 40's, 50's, 60's and beyond as he was in his rambunctious 20's."
