As we age, our health needs change as our bodies’ cells naturally slow down. The process of aging causes our bodies to adapt for change and to protect us against age-related diseases. However, due to these natural changes in cellular composition, we become more vulnerable to other medical conditions. For instance, due to our blood vessels losing elasticity with age, high blood pressure can result, introducing more serious health risks including heart attack, stroke, heart failure and more. Unhealthy lifestyle choices such as smoking and poor diet, furthermore, can add to these risks, taking their toll on your overall wellness and impacting other facets of your health such as inhibiting sexual performance and creating imbalances in critical hormones such as estrogen, testosterone and progesterone.
At AllCare, your sustained health is our utmost priority. We believe that wellness is of paramount importance and should not be an inconvenience; as such, our comprehensive clinic is designed to address any and all health concerns you have, and to completely facilitate your optimally balanced health under one roof.
Hormones are at the center of wellness. As we age, hormone levels decline. When your hormones are imbalanced, a number of health problems—such as low libido, fatigue, anxiety and depression—ensue.
Women are particularly affected by hormonal shifting as it relates to menopause. Deficiencies in estrogen and progesterone compromise a woman’s reproductive health, and can lead to a number of unwanted side effects including anxiety, emotional irritability, depression, loss of libido, fatigue, poor sleep, headaches, abnormal weight gain and more.
Many men, on the other hand, face testosterone deficiencies which may lead to decreased muscle mass, abnormal weight gain, changes in cholesterol levels, decrease in body hair and even may cause andropause (commonly called “male menopause”), which can cause more unwanted side effects including decreased libido, depression and fatigue.
To address hormonal imbalances and associated hormonal problems, AllCare uses Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) in which hormones that match the hormones in your own body are employed in order to replenish deficiencies and return your quality of life. Testosterone replacement therapy in men, or estrogen or progesterone replacement in women, can help balance these necessary hormones to their optimal levels in order to help return normalcy to your life and improve its overall quality.
In men, sexual dysfunction is typically characterized by:
To combat these problems, we offer a number of treatments to restore penile function. Erectile dysfunction is typically caused by inhibited blood flow to the penis. This is mediated with Viagra, which restores blood flow to the penis. On the other hand, low levels of testosterone can sometimes be at play in male sexual dysfunction cases. Testosterone replacement therapy mediates this issue, restoring your body’s testosterone to optimal levels. We also offer penile injections, in which the arteries of the penis are dilated in order to increase proper blood flow to the penis, facilitating your ability to achieve an erection.
In women, inadequate vaginal lubrication before and during intercourse is often a culprit of female sexual dysfunction. To combat this problem, AllCare offers injections specifically designed to restore normal vaginal function.
Additionally, we offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to combat hormonal imbalances as they relate to female sexual dysfunction. Unlike in male sexual dysfunction cases, which are typically identified and addressed, female sexual dysfunction is oftentimes underplayed or dismissed as part of the aging process, ultimately going untreated. In fact, many of these cases originate from an estrogen deficiency or the onset of menopause, both of which can be addressed with BHRT to mediate their symptoms.
Being overweight opens the door to a number of physical health risks including stroke and heart attack, as well psychological factors such as depression. At AllCare, we believe, no matter the cause of weight gain, that weight loss is an important facet to sustained wellness that is hard to achieve on your own. That’s why our clinic boasts a comprehensive weight loss program that can help facilitate your weight loss journey, supporting you both physically and mentally.
