James Lewerenz, D.O. – Detroit Area Bioidentical Hormone Doctor
Longevity Health Institute specializes in bio-identical hormones, hormone replacement therapy, anti-aging, nutrition and weight management programs. Our regenerative approach will maximize your quality of life… FOREVER.
Anti-aging medicine views disease as a condition caused by toxins in your body, nutritional deficiences, and stress. These factors in your body then eventually result in changes in enzyme and hormone production, which produces signs and symptoms of biochemical dysfunction. Over time, a chronic illness could develop.
Our medical program is a proactive approach that encourages and promotes healthy living and aging.
Why Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
The body functions best when the cells are in their optimal state. When you have symptoms of bodily dysfunction (i.e. weight gain, insomnia, weakness, fatigue, mood changes, sexual dysfunction, etc.) there are imbalances in the five basic areas: hormones, nutrition, toxins, mind, and body.
These imbalances are the source of degenerative conditions such as menopause, perimenopause, andropause (male menopause), diabetes and arthritis.
Natural menopause is a condition that every healthy woman will experience as she reaches middle age. It is a natural, gradual process that occurs when a woman’s ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, and her lifetime supply of eggs becomes depleted.
Perimenopause is the word that describes the time when a woman’s body transitions from her fertile, child-bearing years into middle age. During this natural transition, the body undergoes biologic changes resulting from declining ovarian hormone production.
The signs and effects of the menopause transition can begin as early as age 35, although most women become aware of the transition in their mid to late 40s.
Normally lasting for several years, its duration varies for every woman, and its course is impossible to predict.
During perimenopause, a woman’ menstrual cycle becomes irregular and varied, and fertility becomes diminished.
Every woman’s experience is different, but common symptoms of perimenopause include irregular menstrual periods, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, insomnia, and mood swings, depression, and weight gain.
Andropause is the period in a man’s life that is marked by a drop in the levels of the male hormone, testosterone. Normally occuring between the ages of 45 and 55, andropause is slow, steady reduction in testosterone levels.
Unlike menopause in women, however, middle-aged men do not experience the complete and permanent shutdown of their reproductive capacity.
