Dr. Mark Scroggins is one of the areas leading Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialists. Given the above facts, perhaps you can see why it is imperative that you learn the true role of Testosterone in your body.
Hormones rejuvenate, regenerate and restore. They serve as powerful chemical messengers sent to specific cells throughout your body to orchestrate many of your body’s internal functions and how your organs behave. Even a small fluctuation in levels can cause big changes in cells or even disrupt the balance throughout your entire body. Too much or too little of a hormone can have serious consequences.
NOTE: This is another reason to be cautious when selecting hormone
replacement therapy. The goal should always be hormonal balance and based in science rather than experimentation or guessing. Many therapies merely attempt to replenish estrogen and/or progesterone and testosterone but never achieve homeostasis. And too many physicians lack the expertise or knowledge to attain the proper outcome.
Dr. Scroggins uses the BioTE Method witch provides precise individualized dosing based on more than 35 years of research.
