Bioidentical Hormone Balancing
in Dallas – Ft. Worth: What Can It Do For You?
Bioidentical hormone balancing brings the Fountain of Youth closer than you think. The common perceptions about the diseases of old age and the accompanying physical and mental deterioration are simply no longer true for the majority of people. An optimal hormone balance in the body, at levels normal for a healthy younger person, can significantly slow the aging process and greatly improve the quality of life. These youthful hormone levels can prevent the usual physical and mental decline that have become accepted parts of aging.
“Hormone balancing is important, as the hormones all influence and interact with each other,” says Dallas physician Albert L. Hirsch, MD, “Each hormone must be addressed to achieve an ideal balance.”
Highly skilled and experienced in the science of bioidentical hormone balancing in Dallas – Ft. Worth, Dr. Hirsch performs thorough hormone level evaluations with proper laboratory testing along with an in-depth patient assessment. Dr Hirsch is able to use bioidentical hormones, natural and identical in molecular structure to those naturally produced by one’s own body, to supplement a patient’s entire hormone balance. PLEASE NOTE: It was synthetic, non-bioidentical hormones in the Women's Health Initiative study in 2001-2002 that were recently in the news as having links to cancer. Bioidentical Hormone Balancing actually significantly REDUCES the incidence of cancer

Did you know that most Bioidentical Hormone Balancing in Dallas & Ft. Worth is often NOT performed by Medical Doctors?
Some practitioners (Podiatrists, Chiropractors, Homeopaths /Naturopaths, Nutritionists & Dieticians), and even medical doctors (MD or DO) or their assistants (PA, NCP, etc.), simply ask a compounding pharmacist who is not trained in patient care to recommend hormones for hormone balancing in their patients. Additionally, some doctors request these hormones often without proper lab testing to determine patients’ needs. In these situations the pharmacist will have someone licensed to prescribe medications “sign off” on his or her decisions.
As a highly respected physician in Dallas since 1978, Dr. Albert Hirsch is an innovator in the practice of bioidentical hormone balancing and replacement, HCG weight management, anti-aging, longevity, occupational medicine, and general & preventive medicine for his patients. Dr. Hirsch personally evaluates, prescribes, oversees and monitors all hormone therapies, and the progress of each of his patients.
Update October 2010: Now, many physicians are attending one course & trying to practice BHRT. It would be nice if it was that simple. There are so many different philosophies out there, that years of study & experience are necessary to "get it right." Dr. Hirsch has learned from virtually all anti-aging associations, many of the best practioners, and from having personally treated over 1500 patients for BHRT and/or weight loss. A helpful hint or two: Only serum (blood) lab results are valid indicators of hormone levels. NEVER trust saliva or hair testing! Be cautious with products being directly sold by the “health professional”. Never take “diet pills”! Appetite suppressants & “lypotropic” injections are not necessary with HCG use.
Update May 2011: Many recent published studies indicate that a more youthful hormone balance may prevent the development of Alzheimer’s. Optimizing the levels of two particular hormones seems to even slow the progression of existing Alzheimer’s.
CAUTION! We are now seeing and trying to reverse the damage done to patients who have been treated by expensive “age intervention” centers that advertise with amazing before and after pictures of older men, now looking buff and young. Enough Growth Hormone and Testosterone shots can make most patients look and feel younger, but significantly jeopardizes health and longevity! “Estrogen blockers” that significantly harm cardiovascular health are even being used. Remember, proper BHRT only optimizes hormone levels and enhances health and longevity. NEVER use implanted hormone pellets!
