Bioidentical Hormone Doctor Houston – Julie Beth Yelin, M.D.
Julie Beth Yelin, M.D. at Choose Health Wellness Center of Houston, Texas uses a functional medicine approach to identify the cause of your problems, not just treat the symptoms. Detailed, thorough, integrated, and customized plans are developed for each patient. These unique patient plans take into account current lifestyle, stress levels, diet, exercise, and motivations when addressing the root causes of your symptoms. Dr. Yelin spends a lot of time educating her patients, making sure they understand the “what, why, and how” throughout each step of the way. She works with each patient as a team member toward the common goal of optimal health.
With over twenty years of medical experience, Julie Beth Yelin, M.D. has dedicated the focus of her practice towards Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, helping patients regain their health through optimal hormone levels. This therapy is an essential piece of the optimal health puzzle, and it should be combined with proper nutrition, exercise, vitamin and mineral replenishment, and detoxification. All of these therapies are important to achieving optimal levels of health, and it is Dr. Yelin’s mission to educate her patients to understand the potential benefits associated with a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Bioidentical hormones are identical in chemical and molecular structure and function to the hormones produced in the human body, and due to their identical nature to the body’s hormones, women and men can use them to balance their hormones with rare side effects. Restoring hormones to balance can reduce many of the consequences of aging and hormone decline.
Some of the many benefits offered by Bioidentical Hormone Therapy may include:
Hormone decline in both men and women can cause the metabolism to function more slowly, which can lead to Metabolic Syndrome. This syndrome can cause symptoms such as hypertension, high cholesterol, insulin resistance, increased abdominal fat, and high triglycerides. Balancing hormone levels may improve metabolic function and reduce the symptoms of metabolic syndrome.
Improved Muscle Tone
In both women and men, testosterone can help muscle to stay firm and prevent muscle atrophy and flabbiness. During hormone decline, most men lose around 12-15 pounds of muscle mass, and women lose muscle tone and become softer.
Increased Sexual Function
In men, signs of low testosterone can begin with a lack of desire for sexual activity, which is followed with a loss of involuntary morning erections. Eventually, reduced testosterone can lead to erectile dysfunction. In women, hormone decline can lead to vaginal dryness, inability to climax, and low libido. While these symptoms can occur at any time, they are most common during the times of perimenopause, menopause, or Andropause.
More Youthful Appearance
In women and men, estrogen can promote the production of collagen, which helps to keep the skin youthful and elastic. It can also help women to maintain breast fullness, and thick hair and nails.
Reduced Body Fat
In men, low testosterone can lead to a lack of motivation for exercise and reduced metabolism, which may cause body fat storage. Higher levels of fat have been shown to increase estrogen levels in the body which can also suppress testosterone. Balancing testosterone can stop the cycle of fat buildup and estrogen dominance and help men to lose body fat and increase testosterone levels. In women, imbalances in estrogen and progesterone can lead to weight loss resistance and also increase the risk of developing uterine fibroids.
Estrogen and testosterone balance can help both men and women to detoxify the brain and increase the neurotransmitter GABA, which transmits feelings of calmness. Hormone fluctuations can cause increased anxiety, anger, depression, and irritability.
Regulated Sleep Cycles
During hormone decline, both men and women can experience interference with the body’s cycles. Hormones trigger the hypothalamus to regulate sleep and waking cycles, and when this function becomes inhibited due to a lack of hormones, a person may experience difficulty falling and staying asleep, waking up many times during the night, or waking up very early in the morning and not being able to fall back asleep. Balancing hormones can reduce these symptoms and balance sleep cycles.
Each person has different genetics, chemistry, toxic loads, stress, hormone levels, and nutritional statuses. Because each person is unique, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapies must be customized for each specific patient. There is no one size fits all remedy in addressing total wellness and hormone therapies. Julie Beth Yelin, M.D. diligently records test results and symptoms to create a customized plan for each of her patients. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the foundation for optimal health.
