The medical professionals at Total Image can create a custom Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) program for you.

Total Image offers hormone replacement therapies for men who are experiencing decreased levels of testosterone. Decreased testosterone can be a natural side effect of aging or can be caused by existing medical conditions. The side effects of low testosterone levels include fatigue, erectile dysfunction, depression, changes in sleep patterns, decreased sex drive, hair loss and irritability. Hormone replacement treatments combat these side effects in addition to increasing bone mass, maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and keeping the heart healthy.
Testosterone supplements are available in a variety of forms including skin patches, mouth patches, gels and injections. If you are interested in testosterone replacement therapy, a consultation with one of our medical professionals will determine what type of supplement you are prescribed.

In addition, DHEA can be used to treat erectile dysfunction and psychological conditions like depression.
