Victor Kopyev, M.D. is a practicing internist with 25 years of experience treating chronic disease. Through this experience, along with his training through Cenegenics, Dr. Kopyev takes a 360 ° approach to his patients’ healthcare and prevention.
Age Management Medicine is not a new concept in the medical field. It concentrates on targeting the causes of aging and preventing disease before it can affect the body. An ancient Chinese proverb states, “The inferior physician treats the disease once it occurs. The mediocre physician prevents the disease from coming back. The superior physician prevents the disease from ever occurring.”
It is a simple fact of life that we all age. Some will age more gracefully than others. Hormone Replacement Therapy has been used successfully for over eight decades to control and prevent weight gain, metabolic slowdown, energy decline, loss of libido, depression, hair loss, memory decay, physical signs of aging, and chronic diseases.
However, in the past many people suffered from the side effects of synthetic hormone replacement. A newer approach to hormone therapy takes the place of previously rejected conjugated equine estrogens (CCE) for women, due to an increased risk in breast cancer, heart attacks, and strokes, and specific protocols have been designed for men. This new approach to replenishing deficient hormones is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, which uses hormones identical in molecular structure and function to the hormones produced in the human body, and this can help to prevent many inconvenient side effects.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can be used for a wide variety of symptoms and diseases. BHRT is used for hormonal imbalances, which means that it begins with prevention of disease, but it can be used as a compliment to any traditional medical treatment, to eliminate symptoms, or as a complete treatment. The situation always is dependent upon the individual’s unique circumstances, and another positive aspect to BHRT is that it can be customized to fit individual needs.
