Hi, my name is Dr. Monte Slater, MD , FACOG, ABAARM, and I just wanted to take some time to introduce myself to you and to let you know how happy I am to bring what I think is a vital piece of the Anti-Aging puzzle to the Savannah Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Center. I’m talking about Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy!
Let’s face it, the Anti-Aging revolution is sweeping the country and for many good reasons. No one wants to experience the diminishing effects of aging, including decreased vitality, decreased sexual function and enjoyment, aging skin changes, unwanted and undeserved weight gain, mystifying hair loss, and many other negative aspects of the aging process, especially when many if not all of these negative effects can be reduced or eliminated by maintaining a balanced hormonal milieu with in your own body.
As a practicing, Board Certified OB/GYN for 30 years I saw first hand the devastating effects of aging without appropriate hormone replacement, but like everyone else, I felt helpless in providing relief to these women due to the negative studies which cast a shadow on the safety of the medications that were being offered at that time. The potential side effects of the alternative medicines were just as scary.
As for men’s aging needs, we weren’t even on anyone’s radar. We just assumed that there was no alternative to loosing muscle mass, having decreasing sexual performance, or gaining weight in our midsections. Of course the end results of growing old without replacing our declining hormones is that Grandma begins to look like Grandpa and Grandpa begins to look like Grandma. The vital components of what makes a woman a woman and a man a man are slowly lost with time.
Then I began to learn about Bio-Identical Hormones and decided to really do an in depth study and became Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. It was through this process that I began to understand the many issues involved in medically managing hormone replacement therapy, for both women and men. I learned that the majority of the problems with hormone replacement involved the use of medications that proved to be toxic to the human body, medicines that are still being used today! The use of Bio-Identical Hormones means that we are using drugs with the exact same chemical structures as those that your own body makes. The implications of this are immense.
First, it means that these hormones fit into the body’s receptors exactly as designed, much like a puzzle piece, and therefore initiate precisely the right response for the body as they were intended to do. No falling off early or only affecting a partial response. Once they have served their purpose and fall off the receptor they are immediately recognized by the body as being a normal part of body function and captured and removed via the body’s own natural metabolic pathway for that hormone. Non bio-identical hormones are not even recognized by the human body and so wind up slowly degrading within the body, sometimes over several weeks, and it may be these degradation byproducts that contribute to or cause the negative side effects of these types of hormone products.
In addition, I learned that medical management that involves either taking a one size fits all approach to prescribing hormone replacement without obtaining and following appropriate levels or giving over vital medical management decisions to non-medical providers can lead to less than desirable outcomes, wasted time and money, and in some cases may even be dangerous. Also, consider that your hormonal needs are likely to change as you mature and so will need ongoing monitoring and vigilance to ensure quality and safety. My goal is to provide you with a medically reasoned, safe and effective yet convenient way to maintain your individual hormonal balance.
So in closing, I invite you to join me in this Anti-Aging Revolution, and again want to thank Dr. Finger for allowing me to be a part of the innovative, cutting edge anti-aging program that he has developed at Savannah Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Center. Finally, I want to thank you for taking the time to allow me to share my experiences and insight into this exciting new field.
