According to a recent article published on USAToday.com, the long-term use of osteoporosis drugs (bisphosphonates) such as Boniva, Fosamax and Reclast, can increase the risk hip fractures and breaks. Although the drugs affect men more or less the same, women are more likely to suffer from conditions stemming from low bone mass, making them prime candidates for the drugs. It’s estimated that 10 million Americans have been diagnosed with osteoporosis – a condition where the bones becomes brittle and porous – and 34 million Americans suffer from poor bone density and risk spine and hip fractures.
Bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body; matching the body’s natural hormones molecule by molecule. They are referred to as “All Natural” because they are extracted from soy and yams. Bioidentical hormones are processed by a compounding pharmacist. Once the plant-based hormone is processed, its structure is identical to the estrogen, progesterone, and androgen hormones produced naturally by one’s body. This is why our bodies can metabolize them naturally as it was designed to do, with minimal or no bioidentical hormones risks or side effects.
Dr. Robert Rubin of BodyLogicMD was interviewed by Gayle Guyardo on WFLA-Tampa. He discussed “The Oprah Effect” on his practice and the Anti-Aging industry in general. He’s excited to see so many people taking control of their health and doing their research since Oprah started the conversation on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
In women who are entering menopause, estrogen levels are either too high or too low. Estrogen influences the production of serotonin – a neurotransmitter that regulates mood. Irritable Men Syndrome or Irritable Male Syndrome (IMS) is the term used to describe the mood swings in men. Although Irritable Male Syndrome is most often caused by high stress and/or low testosterone; high estrogen levels can also cause irritability in men.
