Due to many requests from California patients, Dr. Jacobson will be coming regularly to Beverly Hills and Newport Beach to consult with both women and men making Greenwich Bioidentical Hormones now bicoastal.
Dr. Jacobson’s practice focuses on the benefits of optimizing hormone replacement therapy stemming from evidenced based medicine and the results of controlled randomized trials, not simply observational studies.
This gives credibility and strength to Dr. Jacobson’s therapeutic recommendations which make you look and feel better while reducing your risks for heart disease, dementia, and cancer.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is natural hormone therapy. One may have heard about the risks of hormone therapy, but those risks apply primarily to synthetic hormones.
Bioidentical hormones are plant-based, and molecularly and chemically the same as a woman’s natural hormones – the hormones her body is no longer producing in the same quantities because of menopause. Besides the practical matters of allowing women to feel “like themselves” again, bioidentical hormones reduce a woman’s risk for cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, and dementia.
Bioidentical hormones can significantly increase bone density, which reduces the risk of fractures and other age-related spine and neck issues. In short, bioidentical hormone therapy can make a tremendous difference in quality of life. Bioidentical hormones are not just for women. Men can benefit from bioidentical testosterone hormone, as they go through similar changes as they age.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is not one-size-fits-all. The hormone therapy regimen is custom-tailored to each patient. Bioidentical hormone therapy requires a commitment on the part of the patient. Patients will not see instant results, but the benefits will occur in time.
In the short-term, patients receive relief from the symptoms preventing them from sleeping, enjoying sex, or feeling “foggy.” Over the long-term, bioidentical hormones help rebuild bone strength, repair plaque formation in the arteries and build muscle mass. With continued bioidentical hormone therapy, people no longer look or feel their chronological age. It is a way of turning back the clock.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is not for everyone. It is not recommended for clinically obese people or those with certain inherited conditions. The overwhelming majority of people can use and benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy.
Patients must undergo appropriate blood and other testing prior to receiving bioidentical hormone therapy. Every person’s body chemistry is unique. Unlike synthetic hormone replacement therapy, a patient’s bioidentical hormones are created for each individual in a compounding pharmacy. Remember that synthetic hormones can be patented, while natural hormones cannot.
The pharmaceutical industry makes a tremendous amount of money off of these patented synthetic hormones while putting women at risk. All laboratory work is done locally and, in most cases, is covered by insurance.
Compounding pharmacies in Beverly Hills and Irvine that meet our standards for quality and service deliver medications directly to client’s overnight if they are unable to obtain them personally.
Dr. Jacobson is available by text, email, telephone, or Skype by simply making an appointment through the Greenwich office. The staff will answer all of your initial inquiries in a clear, unhurried manner and can arrange for a limited telephone consultation with Dr. Jacobson if desired.
Dr. Jacobson will be in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, June 27 and in Newport Beach on June 29.
