Andropause

Hormone decline is not just a phenomenon that affects women; it also occurs in men and can cause a series of symptoms and changes to occur.

Testosterone is the primary male hormone, and it is responsible for forming the secondary male sex characteristics, such as a deeper voice, body and facial hair, and the testes.

This hormone also governs sexual function and reproduction, and it can begin to decline as early as a man’s 30’s. Starting in a man’s third decade, testosterone begins to decline at a rate of around 1% each year, and by the time he reaches his mid to late forties it tends to take a steep decline.

Andropause is the phase when hormonal changes take place for a man, and it usually occurs between the ages of 40-55. Andropause is also known as male menopause, and during this time, men can experience physical, mental, and emotional changes. In men, testosterone is produced in the Leydig cells of the testicles, and around middle age, these cells cannot produce adequate amounts of testosterone.

Some of the symptoms of andropause may include:

  • Muscle Atrophy
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Lower Libido
  • Thinning Hair
  • Weight Gain Around The Middle
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Night Sweats

Dr. Anju Mathur can help men to recover from testosterone decline with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical hormones are identical in molecular structure and function to the hormones produced in the human body, and for this reason, they can be easily metabolized and made active in the body to supplement deficiencies without producing negative side effects.

Many men have been able to improve their quality of life through partaking in Dr. Mathur’s comprehensive Wellness Program, which includes Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men. Some of the benefits that can be achieved with bio-identical hormone replacement include:

Improved Sexual Function & Libido

Decreased sexual and reproductive function can include erectile issues, decreased libido, or infertility. The testicles produce testosterone, and this hormone is responsible for sexual and reproductive functions. When the hormone decreases, the associated functions suffer. Supplementing testosterone can help men to restore their libido and erectile function, and some men report feeling the way they did during their 20’s and 30’s.

Increased Muscle Tone

Muscle atrophy includes a loss of muscle due to decreased testosterone, and during andropause, men can lose around 12-15 pounds of muscle mass. Muscle cells are directly influenced by testosterone, and they can wane away due to a loss of testosterone. Restoring testosterone to healthy levels can increase muscle tone and mass, heighten stamina and endurance, and allow men to have increased motivation for exercising.

Fat Loss

Weight gain can accrue, especially around the middle, because of a loss in muscle. Muscle burns up fat, and decreased muscle can result in fat retention. Low testosterone levels also slow down metabolism, which can cause an increase in body fat. Regulating testosterone levels can help the body to metabolize more fat and acquire a leaner appearance.

Better Sleep

Men experiencing hormone decline may have issues falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up early in the morning and being unable to go back to sleep. Sleep disturbances can be caused due to hormonal interferences with the body’s internal clock. Issues for low testeroine symptoms can include insomnia, sleep apnea, or vivid dreaming. Fatigue can result from improper rest and unsound sleep cycles. Balancing hormone levels can help men to sleep well and reduce sleep disturbances, and they can also regain their energy levels with proper sleep.

Regulated Body Temperature

Irregular body temperature is another result of decreased testosterone. Hot flashes, night sweats, or chills can occur from abnormal testosterone levels confusing the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is responsible for regulating temperature, and unclear signals can cause the body to feel too hot or too cold. Balancing testosterone levels can help men to reduce surges of heat, night sweats, or alternating heat and chills.

Improved Moods

Mood Swings including increased anger, sadness, or anxiety can occur when estrogen and testosterone levels fluctuate and cause a decrease in the chemicals responsible for regulating moods. Regulating hormone levels can balance moods and create an overall sense of wellbeing.

Improved Prostate Health

Urination problems, such as frequent urination or nocturnal urination, are usually due to the prostate. A drop in testosterone can cause the prostate to enlarge, and if it enlarges, it can push on the urinary bladder to cause urinary frequency. At night, when the bladder becomes full, the prostate can increase the pressure even more. Balanced hormones can help the prostate to remain healthy and prevent enlargement.

Thicker Hair

Hair Loss happens when the hair follicles lose their ability to regenerate. The chemical DHT and testosterone work closely together in maintaining hair follicles, and an imbalance causes hair follicles to die. Restoring testosterone levels can help the hair follicles to stay alive and active, and it can help men to grow thicker, more lustrous hair.

Reduced Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is an abnormal enlargement of the male breasts, and it is a result of a testosterone drop and an increase in estrogen. The ratio of estrogen to testosterone must stay balanced in order for men to experience optimal levels of health, and this is because estrogen promotes tissue growth. Higher levels of estrogen can increase breast size, enlarge the prostate, and lead to weight gain. Balancing testosterone levels can allow men to prevent the effects of high estrogen levels.

Angel Longevity Medical Center will evaluate the body’s hormone levels, which are typically obtained through blood tests performed by a lab. After reviewing lab results, Dr. Mathur will provide treatments for andropause, which will usually include bio-identical HRT for men using testosterone. Testosterone Replacement therapy is a treatment for men with low testosterone who want to boost their health and overall well-being. Hormone Replacement Therapy can be subscribed in various forms including gels, creams, patches, injections, and pellets.

Other therapies that are included in Andropause Doctor Mathur’s Wellness Program that can help male hormone decline include IV Nutrient Therapy and a Physician Supervised Medical Weight Loss Program. Infusing the body with nutrients can improve the effectiveness of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and improve overall health. Because many men complain of weight gain with hormone loss, a weight loss program can help them to lose weight and acquire a leaner, healthier appearance.

FIGHT BACK! An Answer to COVID-19

Learn More about boosting your immune system

Covid19 and Your Immune System – A special message from Our Founder, Dr. Anju Mathur

Update March, 22nd:

We remain open to provide crucial services to all our patients and we are welcoming new patients.

Our most important goal is to remain healthy and maintain or build a strong immune system. In an effort to do so, we researched and have found a special test to analyze the overall state of health of your immune system.

A healthy immune system is the only thing that will either keep you from getting Covid19 or if you do contract it, keep the symptoms as mild as possible and the recovery as quick as possible. Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Call now to schedule 818-294-7123

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur

Ingredients:

  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.

Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
