What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Your hormones control almost every aspect of your body. With age, men and women tend to notice a drop in their hormones, primarily testosterone for men and estrogen for women. This hormone decline can interfere with your quality of life, leaving you prone to illness and uncomfortable symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy replenishes your body’s natural hormone supply to establish hormonal balance.

By age 50, many men begin to experience andropause, the male equivalent to menopause. It too can cause undesirable symptoms such as lack of sex drive, increased body fat, irritability and fatigue.
