Treating Low Testosterone at Home

Treating low testosterone starts at home. We recommend several actions to be taken to start a low testosterone wellness plan today.

      1. Get better sleep: Insufficient sleep over the long term can contribute to severe health conditions as sleep controls your stress hormones and maintains your nervous system. Not enough sleep can lead to increased blood pressure, appetite, and blood glucose levels.
      2. Exercise: Regular physical activity can help boost testosterone thereby slowing the natural effects of aging. We recommend getting your heart rate up for at least 30 minutes per day as physical activities release serotonin which promotes healthy sleep while also positively impacting mood, social behavior, appetite, digestion, memory, and sexual function.
      3. Get Key Nutrients: Your diet is the cornerstone of your wellbeing. Consistently eating well is a proven way to improve your wellness. Choose foods rich in minerals which are essential for a healthy hormone balance.

Treating Low Testosterone with BHRT

If you suspect low testosterone, a simple blood test can determine if you have this condition. If lab work finds your testosterone is beneath 300 nanograms per deciliter, we can help you increase testosterone to a more acceptable level.

At Florida Center for Hormones and Wellness, we provide a highly customized, medically-proven program that includes:

  • Blood tests
  • Lab reviews
  • Symptom surveys
  • Medical history reviews
  • Bio-identical hormone replacement
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Scheduled follow-ups

From encouraging the body’s production of testosterone via lifestyle and diet adjustments, to professional-grade nutritional supplements, we offer layers of treatment that fit together to increase your testosterone in a healthy process.

As part of our treatment plan, we often recommend Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. BHRT uses hormones to help resolve the symptoms related to decreased testosterone production in men. These hormones are called bio-identical because they are chemically identical to those produced by the human body. BHRT is an evidence-backed, safe, and effective way to treat low testosterone in men.

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is carefully administered by a highly trained professional as an oral pill, topical cream, subcutaneous injection or pellet.

What is the difference between TRT and BHRT?

While TRT focuses exclusively on testosterone, BHRT refers to holistic hormone balancing beyond just testosterone. BHRT for men uses bio-identical hormones which closely resemble the hormones our bodies produce, allowing for safe, healthy integration and bioavailability. Frequently providers selling TRT are using synthetic hormones.
