Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy Safely Treats Menopause Symptoms

Menopause Symptoms Hormone Replacement Therapy Can Help - Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when her childbearing years come to an end. While the average age of menopause in the U.S. is age 51, the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause may actually start years before, as the ovaries begin to produce far fewer of the body’s "sex hormones”, including estrogen. This time period leading up to menopause is called perimenopause. The sex hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, not only enable reproduction but also regulate almost every aspect of a woman's body - from metabolism and weight gain to bone density and libido.

Top 10 Signs of Low Testosterone & How to Treat It -  Testosterone is an “androgen” (male sex hormone) that is most often associated with libido and sexual performance in men.

Statistics on low testosterone vary, but it is generally agreed that almost 40 percent of men aged 45 years and older...

PRP Hair Loss Treatment FAQs

PRP Hair Loss Treatment Frequently Asked Questions – Hair loss can be frustrating and embarrassing, make you look much older than you are, and lead to a loss of self-confidence and lowered self-esteem. And, while “going bald” is frequently considered a men’s issue, hair loss is extremely common in women – with more than 21 million American women currently suffer from some form of hair loss. Up until recently, the only truly effective means of reversing hair loss and restoring hair growth was either expensive and painful hair transplant surgery, or harsh medications with extremely dangerous side-effects. But all that has changed with the introduction of 100% natural “PRP” – extracted from the patient’s own blood – to regrow thick, healthy hair. Dr. Hakim is one of only...
