Just as vitamins and minerals decline with age, the organs in women and men alike produce declining levels of hormones with age. These include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid hormones, growth hormone, melatonin, DHEA, brain hormones and the list goes on. Replacement of hormones helps to maintain the health of the body’s organs, while effectively treating numerous symptoms. The hormones used at Florida Center for Hormones & Wellness are identical to the hormones the body makes. Florida Center for Hormones strives to meet the ever-changing health needs of men and women. Its staff focuses on the nontraditional medical specialties of hormone replacement, sexual health and dysfunction, nonsurgical cosmetics, health and wellness, anti-aging and integrative medicine. They firmly believe that the “quality of life” is an essential component to any discussion about longevity.

is an advanced fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine, and a member of the International Society for Sexual Medicine and the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health. He and his team go the extra mile so that their patients can function higher — physically, mentally and sexually. At Florida Center for Hormones & Wellness, patients are not rushed, and their feelings and concerns become the staff’s concerns. They take the time needed to help each patient achieve, or perhaps exceed, his or her realistic goals through a customized care plan. The practice uses a compounding pharmacy, giving the staff the ability to provide ingredients commonly found in mass-produced medications. This allows for accurate dosing, reduced side effects and ease of administration. Some patients ask if they are safe taking hormones. The center’s staff asks “How safe are you without your hormones?” The cells in a person’s brain, heart, vessels, bones, skin, hair follicles and muscles all have receptors for hormones. As hormone levels dwindle, these cells and tissues lose stimulation, leading to a rapid decline and advancement of degenerative diseases. If a person would correct a vitamin or mineral deficiency with bioidentical vitamins or mineral replacements, he/she should consider replacing a declining hormone.
