Hormonal imbalance can be the cause for low libido and general disinterest in sex for women and men
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) February 8, 2008 -
For some, Valentine's Day is a reminder of love and libido but often times women and men are suffering from no or low libido and trying to regain their desire. BodyLogicMD hormone therapy experts say the answer could be a case of hormonal imbalance, diet and exercise. BodyLogicMD is a group of highly trained physicians specializing in bioidentical hormone therapy integrated with nutrition and fitness programs that can help patients recover their libido once again.
"Hormonal imbalance can be the cause for low libido and general disinterest in sex for women and men," said BodyLogicMD's CMO, Dr. Alicia Stanton. "Bioidentical hormone therapy helps balance out hormonal levels such as testosterone and cortisol so that libidos are improved."
Experts say that loss of desire and sex drive may be directly related to lower estrogen, progesterone, or testosterone levels, which often happens during menopause or andropause (the male menopause). A low sex drive is the most common sexual complaint made by women - up to 30 to 40 percent of them.
Even younger individuals can feel the effect of a hormonal imbalance as it relates to their sex life. Brought on by stress, women are losing hormones long before the first signs of menopause.
Besides biology, the following factors can affect libido:
- Quality of the relationship
- Attitudes of upbringing
- Support of peer group
- Quality of touch and sex
- Understanding of partners
- Use of medications
"At BodyLogicMD, we treat each patient's situation uniquely. Hormone levels are evaluated using comprehensive saliva and blood testing," said Dr. Stanton. "We then use bioidentical hormone therapy coupled with proper nutrition and fitness to correct any imbalance. By using these therapies and programs, our patients feel younger and revitalized."
"I wasn't ready to give up my sex life," said one BodyLogicMD patient. "Once starting the bioidentical hormone therapy, my libido was back and I was enjoying my sexuality again like I did when I was younger!"
BodyLogicMD physicians use bioidentical or natural hormones, to treat their patients. Unlike synthetic hormones, more commonly used by physicians today, bioidentical hormones replicate the body's own natural hormones. They make women feel normal again without any adverse side effects.
Founded in 2003, BodyLogicMD is a network of physician-owned practices specializing in natural bioidentical hormone therapy integrated with fitness and nutrition for men and women suffering from hormonal imbalance, menopause and andropause. Suzanne Somers' latest book, "Ageless, The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones" features BodyLogicMD as an expert source. BodyLogicMD currently has 14 locations in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, New Hampshire, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia. The most recent BodyLogicMD just opened in Indianapolis, Indiana.
