Naturopathic andropause treatments
Andropause treatments can vary in forms from testosterone replacment to herbal medicine and other holistic treatment. Because andropause is a deficiency in testosterone the most effective approaches are testosterone therapy in some forms, most often in the form of injection but topical forms are also available. The injectable forms are preferred by most because they quickly enter into the body and the benefits are noticed more quickly.
Dosing will vary and our bioidentical hormone doctors tailor the dose to the amount your body needs by testing levels and adjusting doses appropriately. Taking a sample of your blood allows the doctors identify the exact dose you need to ensure your symptoms improve without giving you too much. Too much testosterone can lead to an excess of estrogen and other non-desirable effects.
Topical forms of treatment are also available in the form of cream and gel. Our bioidentical doctors use customized bioidentical hormone creams unlike the commercial forms on the market, these are individialized. The commercial forms don't allow for the same degree of customization and dosing.
Other andropause treatments use herbal medicine, acupuncture, nutraceuticals, and others treatments which address the individual symptoms like:
- Low Libido
- Increased Weight
