Perimenopause and Menopause

As we age, a cascade of hormones including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, growth hormone, thyroid hormone, and others gradually begin to decline. With the decline of hormone levels, undesirable symptoms such as a decline in sexuality, mood, and overall energy usually start to present in the mid 30’s to 50’s. We also see increasing risk of serious medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Menopause has been under diagnosed due to women and men not admitting that they have vague symptoms, and also clinicians not giving attention to investigating this problem. Our criteria for hormone regulations revolve around accurate diagnosis through signs and symptoms, physical examination, and hormone blood levels.

Initial Physician Visit

Initial diagnosis through physician visit that covers clinical history, physical evaluation, and lab work to measure current hormone levels.   Age Management of West Michigan providers accept most insurances and offers onsite both cash and insurance based labs for your convenience.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Direct replacement of hormones through prescriptive Bio-Identical Hormones tailored to your specific deficiencies.

BHRT Treatment Options

Bio-Identical replacement options that include pellet therapy, SubQ injections (1 x weekly), creams, troches, and oral.

A patient specific integrative approach to managing the patient’s overall health and well-being is a key component to optimizing hormone levels, hormone utilization, and hormone metabolism.

Bio-Identical Hormones are Safe and Effective

Age Management of West Michigan uses Bio-Identical Hormones.   Bio-identical hormones are derived from plant-based sources and are identical in molecular structure to the endogenous hormones which are produced in the body. 

Replacement with Bio-Identical Hormones improves quality of life and controls the aging process by having a systemic effect in preserving our organs, connective tissues, vessels, muscle, bone, and neurotransmitters.

Integrative Medicine Approach

AMWM is an Integrative Medical Facility that recognizes the importance of looking at the overall health of the body and its systems and how it impacts health and hormone levels   Age management optimizes patient benefits of TRT through a variety of lifestyle approaches:  Maintaining healthy body weight with low body fat, proper nutrition with whole food diet, regular exercise, healthy sleep cycle, supplemental support, managing stress, and avoiding tobacco, drugs, and alcohol.  Psychological stress, drugs and alcohol, sedentary lifestyle, injuries, surgery, medications, and obesity are often contributing factors to hormone decline.

Hormone Cleanse and Detoxification

Age Management utilizes and recommends Hormone Cleanse and Detox protocols at the start of treatment and every 6 months to optimize hormone regulation and metabolism.   Medications and toxins we are exposed to daily are major endocrine disruptors and can significantly reduce the effectiveness of BHRT results.   AMWM offers 1 and 2 week hormone cleanses to detoxify the body and optimize BHRT results.
