Bioidentical hormone therapy in New Canaan is becoming an increasingly popular choice for the treatment of various symptoms of aging experienced by both men and women. This type of therapy offered by Dr. Jacobson is available just 8 miles outside of Stamford. It is no surprise that one of the wealthiest communities in the nation has access to the best hormone treatment options that modern technology has to offer.
Bioidentical hormones are synthesized from plant sources and have the same molecular structure as the hormones naturally produced in women’s bodies. As far as modern science can determine, bioidentical hormones are not distinguishable from the body’s naturally produced hormones by the body itself. As such, the New Canaan hormone replacement therapy offered by Dr. Jacobson is considered quite safe and the most effective treatment for the bothersome symptoms preventing graceful aging.
Menopause and andropause (the male equivalent) have long been recognized to cause symptoms that are disruptive to the normal functions of life for men and women. Symptoms such as depression, sleeplessness, lowered libido and hot flashes are just some of the issues that are commonly experienced and that are effectively alleviated using bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical therapy has the potential to have an even more significant effect on the signs of aging, however. Studies indicate that this therapy has the potential to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, various degenerative conditions and some cancers.
Dr. Jacobson is not offering a miracle cure for aging. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in New Canaan can be seen as a management tool, not a mythical fountain of youth. The results are gradual and can take months to become obvious, but the vast majority of patients report positive experiences and a higher quality of life after beginning treatment.
