Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is unlike any other hormone treatment used in allopathic medicine today. It is unique because of the natural ability for the Bioidentical Hormones to be accepted and used by the human body. This is because Bioidentical Hormones are exact molecular copies of the hormones that are produced naturally. Another unique quality about Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is that each patient gets an individualized dosage of Bioidentical Hormones because the recommended amount varies from patient to patient. This ensures that men and women are receiving all of the hormones that their bodies need.

Specializing in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Dr. Monhollon uses his experience to bring people solutions to hormonal imbalances caused by aging. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to restore hormone levels to the same levels present in a person’s 20’s and 30’s. This means more energy, more confidence, stronger immune system, and more control over one’s life.

Although there are many reasons why people pursue Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, the most common reason is suffering from age related phases of life that are caused by hormonal imbalances. These stages are most commonly known as perimenopause, menopause, and andropause.

The benefits for both men and women are significant, and can include:

  • Improved libido
  • Better cholesterol levels
  • Increased prostate health
  • Healthier blood sugar balance
  • Improved moods
  • Increased mental cognition
  • More strength and energy
  • Improved well being
  • Reduced aches and pains
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Improved muscle mass

Menopause and Perimenopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy

Menopause is a natural part of the aging process in every woman’s life. The exact age that menopause begins differs from woman to woman, as do the symptoms associated with menopause. By decreasing the amount of hormones produced, the body is instinctively accepting that it is reaching the end of its childbearing years. Women going through the transition into menopause often experience many different symptoms which can include:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Heart palpitations
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Urinary urgency
  • Clammy skin
  • Depression
  • Weight gain


Most traditional medicine treatments only focus on managing symptoms but do not address the root cause of the problem. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to not only relieve symptoms and discomforts, but also eliminate them. With this kind of relief, a patient can expect to see a dramatic improvement in the quality of life.

Andropause and Hormone Replacement Therapy

Men experience similar transitional stages as they age. The body’s testosterone levels slowly start to decline beginning in a man’s 30’s, and the signs and symptoms of this testosterone decline is commonly known as andropause. During a man’s 40’s or 50’s, a dramatic drop in the levels of testosterone can occur, and uncomfortable symptoms may result. For men, some common symptoms may include low energy levels, decreased stamina, poor mental function, lower sexual performance, and a decreased sense of self-confidence.

Testosterone contributes to male characteristics, such as physical and behavioral traits. When testosterone levels begin to decline, a slight change in behavior is the common result. Men have reported feeling a loss of quality of life resulting from imbalanced levels of testosterone, and have little to no interest in activities or hobbies that used to interest them.

Andropause is often accompanied with one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue and energy loss
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Occasional bouts of impotence
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of physical strength

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been shown to help men rebalance their hormones and regain control of their life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy restores levels of hormones to what they used to be, bringing youthful vitality and energy.
