STRIPLV HEALTH 1117 Hormones typically get discussed in the context of temperamental teenagers, pregnant women or men experiencing a “mid-life crisis.” But hormones play a key role in every aspect of our health – from cradle to grave – and rightly deserve to be kept in harmony. Hormone replacement therapy, or more specifically bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), has become an increasingly hot topic and doctors are using this treatment to help a variety of ailments, from fatigue, low libido, to bone loss, mood issues and sleep disturbances. One of the practice specialties offered by Dr. John Pierce at Ageless Forever in Las Vegas is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT.) Simply put, hormone replacement therapy is the practice of using hormones to treat symptoms caused by an imbalance or insufficient production in a patient’s body. However, BHRT uses only hormone preparations that are chemically identical to the hormones your own body produces. “BHRT has been used by forward-thinking physicians for well over 20 years, and is rapidly gaining in popularity and being actively sought out by patients,” says Dr. Pierce. “We focus on the fact that biological age, not chronological age, determines the aging of our body and its ability to maintain and repair itself. Even though your body may not be showing signs of illness, your body may not be aging optimally, due to unbalanced hormones.” Regardless of the symptoms, a patient is exhibiting, Dr. Pierce says that the most important thing is to “start low and go slow” and work with a doctor trained in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy through a credible organization. “Many women (and men) come into my office insisting their hormones have been hijacked – when often times, some basic dietary, lifestyle and stress management changes can make a significant impact on how they feel,” says Dr. Pierce. “Once we’ve evaluated the whole body and decide they still need hormones, I can do it at a much lower dose.” Dr. John J.
