All of these conditions are considered normal signs of aging in men and women 35 and older. However, there is an alternative to this so-called “normal” process that is safe, effective, and proven to increase health and vitality as we get older. Hormone Replacement Therapy can help alleviate these issues and give you back the zest for life you had in your younger days.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (also referred to as HRT) refers to the treatment of the negative health issues of aging in both men and women through physician-supervised prescription of various hormones. A general practitioner, gynecologist, endocrinologist or medical doctor may prescribe a low dose of the appropriate hormones to alleviate the patient’s primary symptoms or complaint. This may include loss of energy, inability to lose weight, muscle loss, moodiness or overall negative feelings about life, loss of libido, urinary incontinence, cognitive decline, sleeplessness, hot flashes, night sweats, concentration and/or memory loss, changes in the skin’s appearance and texture, and so on. The most common hormones used in HRT are estrogen, progesterone and estradiol in women and testosterone in both men and women. Your body significantly reduces the production of these hormones as you age. Multiple studies over the past 40+ years have proven that bio-identical hormone replacement (as opposed to synthetic hormones) is a safe and effective treatment for most patients experiencing troublesome symptoms such as these.

Unlike a general practitioner, Dr. Harry Collins specializes in Hormone Replacement Therapy, completing a rigorous certification and training process, and is a renowned expert in Age Management Medicine. As part of that specialized training, Dr. Collins treats his clients with Hormone Optimization Therapy over HRT. Hormone Optimization Therapy is a customized health treatment that brings a patient’s hormones back to the same levels they were in their mid-20s with precision medicine designed and prescribed by a certified age management physician. Rather than just alleviate the symptoms of aging, Hormone Optimization Therapy helps prevent a multitude of age-related illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes, and various cancers. The preventative effects of optimizing hormones to their more youthful levels are documented in various medical journals and studies done since the introduction of Hormone Optimization Therapy in the early 1990s.

As a specialist in Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and Hormone Optimization Therapy, Dr. Harry Collins of Savannah Age Management Medicine recognizes that hormones alone are not the answer. His HRT treatment plan includes a personalized medicine approach to each patient to determine which hormones need to be optimized for the highest possibility of health and vitality. He reviews not only your current levels of estrogen, progesterone, estradiol and testosterone but also DHEA, IGF-1 (human growth hormone), cholesterol, and thyroid function. Your personalized treatment will include a variety of health-sustaining supplements. Dr. Collins also provides nutritional and exercise consulting with a certified health and fitness coach to his clients. HRT, supplements, nutrition and exercise create a winning combination to help bring you back to the health and vitality you enjoyed in your younger days.
