Ray Andrew, M.D.- Hormone Centers of Utah
Welcome to the Hormone Centers of Utah. We look forward to helping you achieve optimal health and feel your best. Every day we meet men and women who wonder where their health and zest for life went. “I’m just getting older, Doc” has become all too common as an excuse for feeling crummy. Yes, we hear this from young women in their 80s, but also from young men in their 30s! No matter how old you are, age is no excuse for poor health.
While some can trace the decline in their health to an event–such as menopause, andropause, childbirth, an injury, a surgery, loss of a loved one, or divorce–others discover that it creeps up on them, causing them to gradually reduce their physical activities and expectations for themselves over time.
Bioidentical hormones have become all the rage over the last few years, and rightly so. Common sense dictates that, if a person no longer produces enough of his or her own hormones, these should be replaced with pure hormones, not drugs. What most patients don’t realize is that a weekend seminar does not make a doctor an expert in bioidentical hormones. And few doctors understand that even bioidentical hormones can be dangerous (in some cases) or at least not as health-promoting as they should be (in other cases) if the delivery method is inappropriate.
At the Hormone Centers of Utah, we help men and women understand that age is not the problem. Rather, the loss of critical hormones, accompanied by inflammation, robs so many of the vitality they used to enjoy. Common complaints include fatigue, insomnia, muscle weakness, lack of motivation, foggy thinking, memory loss, loss of sex drive, depression, and prolonged recovery time after exercise. In addition, men experience difficulty with erections. For their part, women additionally suffer from hot flashes, night sweats, moodiness, and headaches.
While these and many other symptoms bring patients to our offices, we are equally concerned about the degenerative diseases that are accelerated by hormone deficiencies: arthritis, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s dementia, breast and prostate cancer, and more.
With offices in Springville and Moab, we at the Hormone Centers of Utah have been providing the ultimate bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in the form of pellets implanted beneath the skin to residents of Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico, Montana, and even Alaska since 2002. No other method provides needed hormones 24/7, and in a way that reduces one’s risk of numerous degenerative diseases. Moreover, we regularly attend conferences, seminars, and lectures by national experts in the field in order to stay on the cutting edge of our specialty.
With your health at stake, we don’t believe hormone replacement is something a doctor should dabble in following a weekend seminar. We did not become the best in the Intermountain West by accident. Years of experience coupled with regular conferences, seminars, and lectures enable us to provide the optimal form of hormone replacement–pellets–to men and women of all ages. Why bother with creams, lozenges, troches, pills, or shots when you have access to the most effective delivery method available, short of your own body producing enough hormones?
In addition to the ultimate bioidentical hormone replacement, we also specialize in optimizing thyroid and adrenal function, gut repair, treating allergies and autoimmune disease, electromagnetic field therapy, IV nutrition, chelation, and more. Everything we do is designed to replenish what belongs, remove what doesn’t belong, and restore the balance that is essential for vitality and longevity.
Give us a call today to find out if we can help you, too, feel your best and be your healthiest YOU!
