Detroit Michigan Area Bioidentical Hormones Specialists
Alternacare, led by Dr. Steven Margolis, M.D., FAAFP, DABCL, is Macomb County’s oldest and largest bio identical hormone center. Since 1990, Dr. Margolis has been bringing the best of both Eastern and Western medicines to the Tri-County area. So novel was this information in 1990, ABC News dispatched a film crew with satellite feed to Dr. Margolis’ inaugural lecture, streaming to all parts of the country. Thus began a pioneering career in bio identical hormones and anti-aging medicine.
Having long recognized that a single blood test was inadequate to diagnose a complicated hormone imbalance, Dr. Margolis is pleased to offer state of the art 24-hour urine testing for the most precise diagnosis and treatment of hormone disorders.
Dr. Margolis uses the internationally recognized gold standard supervised by none other than Jonathan Wright, the inventor of bio identical hormones in the 70’s. Dr. Margolis has also completed rigorous training in the field supervised by Dr. Wright.
Currently, Alternacare is boarding a 99% success rate in treating hormone imbalances, meaning only one patient out of one hundred does not experience relief of such symptoms as brain fog, fatigue, weight gain, depression, insomnia, headaches, mood swings, sexual dysfunction, low libido, severe PMS, hot flashes, night sweats and menstrual disorders. With results like these, it is no wonder Dr. Margolis was referenced in another pioneer’s book, Suzanne Somers.
Alternacare also offers a variety of other anti-aging testing and treatments focusing on hair analysis, stool analysis, food allergy, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic diseases and cardiovascular risks. Dr. Margolis is also one of the first board certified Lipidologists in the country, specializing in cholesterol disorders, and has directed the Cholesterol Treatment Center since 1991.
Dr. Margolis graduated at the top of his class from the university of Michigan Honors College, Ann Arbor and from Wayne State University School of Medicine. He completed his residency at the nationally acclaimed William Beaumont Hospital and has gone on for advanced certification from the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Clinical Lipidology. Dr. Margolis is a national thought leader in both and lectures extensively throughout the country.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
To answer that question as briefly as possible, they are hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones your body used to produce, but is not making in sufficient quantity anymore. Lack of these crucial hormones causes a wide array of symptoms. Replacement of these hormones with exact replicas from natural products brings your body back to its normal “feel good” state.
Why is it important to replace these hormones?
Forty years ago, our bodies did not have enough time to feel the effects of hormone loss. The latest research is also indicating that replacement of these vital natural hormones helps to prevent the development of some diseases. Some studies have even suggested that the lack of natural hormone supplementation may shorten one’s life span. Research is ongoing, and most all studies are showing positive outcomes toward longevity & improving the quality of life.
Optimize your physical state, feel like you are in your 30’s again!
Aging is difficult enough for women without having to suffer from declining hormone levels. Women often complain of a diminished sense of wellbeing, chronic fatigue, and a loss of libido just to mention a few hormone imbalance symptoms. Once women realize they can restore their natural hormones (their bodies once made abundantly) with bioidentical hormones, they can restore their energy, feelings of wellbeing, and sexuality.
Too many women have given up trying to find the right combination of estrogen and testosterone hormones. Once this hormonal balance is determined, combining hormone replacement with a healthy lifestyle and appropriate diet, will allow females to return to a healthy and vibrant lifestyle as well as maximize the years in which to enjoy it.
The Health Need for Hormone Balance in Males
Symptoms of menopause in women are well studied, but the male equivalent andropause ADAM (androgen deficiency in male) is essentially ignored. Men suffer needlessly from testosterone deficiency also because hormone deficiency goes unrecognized or the male does not talk about it, especially as it relates to any perceived decline in sexual function.
When men think of diminished testosterone levels, they do not usually relate this to decreased enjoyment of life; however, men may notice a decline in their competitive drive or decreased enthusiasm for things previously enjoyed.
Growing older is hard enough for men without having to needlessly suffer from declines in testosterone hormone levels. Now for good health news!
Recent medical research shows that replenishing low testosterone deficiencies provided significant improvement in sexual function and libido, mood, increased energy and general well being for men.
