Steven Komadina, M.D. – Albuquerque Bioidentical Hormones
Health Horizons is a medical practice that strives to form a partnership with its patients in preventing disease when possible and encouraging a healthy lifestyle rather than immediately turning to prescriptive medications. We hope to be excellent listeners and that will be our goal as we see you in our office, and work out a program individualized to you. We are not primary care providers but will work with your individual physician to achieve a healthier life. Usually hormonal balance is a key component to your health and healthy aging.
The clinic is a provider for most HMOs, PPOs, and private insurance plans, and patients usually can see us for a consultation without a referral. Self-pay patients are welcome. Most endocrinologists will say that hormonal balance equates to health. Research continues to indicate that hormones are key to the intricate interrelationships of the body’s parts and systems. They play a pivotal role in your overall health.
Hormones rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They serve as powerful chemical messengers sent to specific cells throughout your body to orchestrate many of your body’s internal functions and how your organs behave. Even a small fluctuation in levels can cause big changes in cells or even disrupt the balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences. This is the reason to be cautious when selecting hormone replacement therapy. The goal should always be hormonal balance and based in science rather than experimentation or guessing. Many therapies merely attempt to replenish estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone but never achieve homeostasis. Too many physicians lack the interest, expertise, or knowledge to attain the proper outcome.
It is easy to see that hormone fluctuation and depletion during perimenopause, menopause, and andropause(in men) wreak havoc in the body. Research evidence repeatedly points to the relationship between the hormonal imbalance of menopause and andropause and an increased risk for developing cancer, osteoporosis, stroke, thyroid malfunction, and other age-related disorders.
It’s actually considered the norm for men and women to experience a decline in health at this stage of the aging process. You’re also more likely to experience problems like depression, anxiety, memory loss, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, libido issues, and sexual dysfunction.
Men and women do not have to suffer from these symptoms. Help is available, naturally and safely with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
