Men’s Hormone Optimization
Hormone Treatment in Tempe
Hormone health plays a vital role in your overall well-being. At Pure Body Health, we offer hormone optimization therapy along with a personalized combination of herbal and vitamin supplements, and diet and lifestyle modifications for men experiencing hormone imbalance symptoms.
Testosterone plays a vital role in a man’s body. It is the main hormone responsible for a man’s sexual development and function. It regulates muscle mass, sex drive, energy levels, and mood.
Testosterone levels in a man peak during puberty and start to decline around age 30, possibly by 1-2% a year. This decline is a natural part of the aging process. Low testosterone levels may make you feel tired, weak, and less interested in sex. You may also have difficulty building muscle mass and struggle with weight gain.
The link between testosterone and perceived masculinity in society can make it difficult for some men to talk about declining hormone levels; however, there are treatments available that can help! One option is hormone optimization therapy. There are a variety of treatment options to bring your hormone levels back into balance, helping to optimize your testosterone levels and improve your overall health.
At Pure Body Health, we know that experiencing the effects of declining and low testosterone can affect your physical and emotional health, and we want to help. If you are looking for hormone treatment in Phoenix, Tempe, Gilbert or Chandler, AZ, call (480)-427-0442 or complete the online booking form.
Testosterone Production in the Male Body
The pituitary gland in your brain produces hormones that regulate other glands in your body, including the adrenal glands and the testicles, both responsible for testosterone production. These glands produce hormones that act as chemical messengers traveling through your bloodstream and regulating various bodily functions, including:
- Sperm production and maturation, fertility
- Red blood cell production
- Muscle mass
- Fat storage
- Bone density
- Sex drive/libido
- Energy levels
What Is Andropause?
Andropause is associated with a decrease in testosterone levels as men age. Testosterone levels typically begin to decline around age 30 and continue to do so throughout a man’s life. If these levels drop particularly low, andropause can begin to cause problems.
While it is sometimes called “male menopause,” it is important to remember that andropause is not the male equivalent of female menopause. The two differ in several ways. Women experience menopause, caused by a sudden drop in estrogen levels that eventually results in the inability to reproduce. Not all men experience andropause, and if they do, it is a gradual process and does not cause the inability to reproduce altogether.
Symptoms of Testosterone Changes and Imbalances
While testosterone levels slowly decrease as you age, several other factors affect testosterone levels, including age, weight, sleep patterns, diet, and stress levels. When testosterone is too low, a man may experience a range of symptoms, including:
- Low sex drive/low libido
- Erectile dysfunction – difficulty getting or maintaining an erection
- Low sperm count
- Increased body fat
- Decreased muscle mass
- Decreased strength
Hormone imbalances can cause drastic changes to your everyday life, affecting your physical and emotional health and relationships. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, book an appointment with Dr. Scott Maymon ND, MPH, or Dr. Sarah Stone, ND. We will conduct a comprehensive examination and determine if a hormonal imbalance is the cause of your symptoms and develop a treatment plan.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment that uses hormones that are identical to the ones produced by your body. At Pure Body Health, we do not use brand-name products for bioidentical hormone therapy. We specialize in custom formulations made with cleaner ingredients specifically for the patient’s individual needs, including injections, lozenges/trochees, creams, and more.
We implement comprehensive lab testing and diagnostics to fine-tune your customized treatment safely. Bioidenticals are not the only hormone optimization therapy that we use. We also utilize thyroid, adrenal, and micronutrient optimization treatments along with herbal medicines to balance hormone levels.
The ultimate goal is a customized therapy option that balances, optimizes, and improves your hormones, quality of life, and lifestyle. If you are looking for treatments for bioidentical hormones in Phoenix, Gilbert, Chandler, or Tempe, call us at (480)-427-0442.
Natural Supplements to Improve Testosterone
There are natural supplements that can help to increase testosterone levels. These supplements work by stimulating the body’s own production of testosterone or providing precursors that the body can use to produce testosterone. A personalized combination of herbal and vitamin supplements can help restore the balance of low testosterone.
What Hormone Imbalance Issues Can Be Addressed?
Our goal is to use comprehensive evaluations, including sex hormones, adrenal, and thyroid testing, to help you address issues such as:
- Diminished sexual desire and performance
- Sluggish metabolism
- Mood problems like depression, low confidence, and irritability
- Poor stress responses
- Poor memory and cognitive function
- Poor sleep quality
- Fatigue and lack of motivation
- Poor stamina for physical activities
- Chronic pain

Frequently Asked Questions
Men can experience an imbalance in their hormones, leading to several symptoms, including low libido, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, weight gain, poor cognitive function, and mood swings.
We offer a personalized combination of herbal and vitamin supplements, diet, and lifestyle modifications along with our bioidentical hormone therapy to help restore the balance of low testosterone levels.
There is no definitive answer to this question. Some men may need to stay on bioidentical hormones for the rest of their lives while others may only need to take them for a few years. It depends on the individual.
It usually takes a few weeks to a few months for your body to adjust to taking bioidentical hormones. Rarely do patients experience side effects on these treatments, but this will be discussed with your provider.
It is important to remember that everyone receives a personalized approach and experiences treatment differently. Hormonal healing takes time as your body adjusts and cycles. It may take anywhere from 3 to 6 months to experience relief from the most uncomfortable symptoms. Remember, the goal is not a quick, temporary fix but optimized health and wellness that will last!
