This type of therapy under discussion is conducted in Connecticut, by Dr. Jacobson. He is a board-certified doctor who specializes in Litchfield bioidentical hormone therapy. Dr. Jacobson is the leading authority for this treatment in the Southeastern New York/Connecticut area.
Residents of Litchfield, which was the social center of Northwestern Connecticut throughout much of the 1700s, being far enough away from the revolutionary conflicts, and now is a popular vacation destination, can make the scenic trip through the Appalachian Mountains to Greenwich for a visit to discuss hormone replacement treatment.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is not the same thing as conventional hormone replacement therapy, so the effectiveness of each is not the same either. The conventional version is known to produce side effects and can potentially increase the risk of more serious health complications, such as heart attack, stroke, and blood clots.
The reason for this is because the conventional hormone replacement therapy uses hormones that are similar to the hormones that are being replaced without being exactly the same. This difference is what makes bioidentical HRT a safer, more-effective treatment option.
Replacing diminishing levels of hormones with identical supplements helps maintain healthy levels within the body. A healthy level of hormones promotes healthy body functions both for men and women going through the stages of andropause and menopause correspondingly.
