Bio identical hormone replacement
Andropause is defined as a gradual drop in testosterone that typically affects men between the ages of 40 and 55. The medical term is "hygonadism."
This decline in male hormones is a natural phenomenon; no man can avoid it. Due to lifestyle factors including high stress, poor nutrition, poor sleep, a lack exercise, prior abuse of drugs including anabolic steroids, more men even younger than 40 are affected by low testosterone levels.
Do you suffer from Low T (Testosterone?)
Have you been feeling more fatigued lately? Have you noticed the days are dragging? You make excuses and tell yourself that traffic, family, or long hours are to blame. Are you putting on a little weight around the middle but just can’t seem to get to the gym? Would you rather watch TV than have sex?
You may have low testosterone. Other signs of low testosterone levels are a loss of bone density, decreased muscle mass, memory loss, and irritability and/or depression.

How is Low T (Testosterone) treated?
Dr. Eugene Raber and Natalie Sharp FNP-BC of Pure Vitality Rx utilize Testosterone Cypionate injections every 7 days to deliver the exact amount your body needs to function at an optimum level. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) means the testosterone being injected has the same chemical structure as the testosterone already in your body, so it will not perceive it as a foreign substance or reject it.
Our holistic approach to care focuses on an integrative care model where each patient is treated as an individual. Every person is different, so our approach to treatment should be, too.
In addition to testosterone injections, other services such as weight loss programs , supplements and vitamin therapy, may help you look and feel your best.
