Understanding Low Testosterone

As men and woman age, their hormone levels decline. This decline creates hormonal imbalances which millions of people are suffering from today. At Danville Holistic Medical Center, we use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) because different people get different results. HRT uses prescription medication that has been around and tested for many decades. BHRT uses hormones identical in chemical and molecular structure to ones produced by the human body. BHRT uses only plant-derived ingredients and are completely safe. They are essentially identical, molecule for molecule, to your own hormones. You cannot purchase them at a regular pharmacy, nor can pharmaceutical companies produce them. In most cases, they are compounded specifically for each individual patient in a special pharmacy and are only prescribed by your physician. Both therapies use hormones including testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, cortisol, thyroid and many others for treating the aging process.

There are several important hormones you may receive while at Danville Holistic Medical Center as our patient. Based upon lab tests, a physical exam, a questionnaire, and your specific goals, our physicians will prescribe the exact hormones your body needs.

Numerous studies have been done attesting to the safety of supplementing hormones for men and women. Hormone replacement therapies have been successfully used by men and women for decades. In well-known medical journals, researchers have reported that the hormones, like estrogen and testosterone, are not only safe but also have a positive impact on some diseases like osteoporosis and prostate cancer.

After the treatments have started, we closely monitor the results of HRT and BHRT to ensure results that are safe and effective. Hormone replacement therapies can assist you in slowing, stopping, and even reversing many of the negative effects of aging, truly rolling back the hands of time.

Call us today to see how you can experience our safe and effective treatments from our medical staff. Aging is difficult enough for women and men without having to suffer from declining hormone levels. Women often complain of a diminished sense of well-being, stubborn weight gain, chronic fatigue, menopause or perimenopause, and a loss of libido, just to mention a few hormone imbalance symptoms. Men often complain of erectile dysfunction, muscle loss, weight gain, andropause (male menopause), and a lower sex drive.


Once women and men realize that they can restore, through therapy, the hormones that their bodies once made abundantly, they can restore their energy, feelings of well-being, and sexuality.

Too many of us have failed when trying to find the right combination of estrogen or testosterone hormones. Once this hormonal balance is determined, combining hormone replacement with a healthy lifestyle, stress reduction, exercise, and an appropriate diet will allow you to return to a healthy and vibrant lifestyle, plus maximize the years in which to enjoy it.


Hormones are the body’s messengers that transport information from the brain to the glands, from the glands to the cells and from the cells to the brain. They rejuvenate, regenerate, and restore our bodies. We used to believe that as we aged, our hormones declined. It is now becoming clear that as our hormones decline, we age! At our peak levels (from ages 25 to 30), our bodies are the strongest and healthiest. Diet and exercise will not be as effective if your hormones are not balanced correctly. To determine your hormone levels, our physicians thoroughly evaluate your symptoms using cutting-edge diagnostics. We may take blood, urine, and/or saliva to determine your hormone levels and your individual hormone needs. After starting therapy, we will continue to monitor and re-evaluate your levels to make sure they are optimal.

Failing physical and mental health is not what we want in our 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond. Real health, long life, feeling and looking great is what we want for ourselves and our fmlies. Since it is increasingly more difficult to get everything we need out of the food we eat, AMG will recommend some important nutraceuticals and other supplements your body requires, especially as you age.


Danville Holistic Medical Center is focused on improving the patients life by taking control of it. The cost is determined by the type of service undergone and by the type and number of hormones and supplements prescribed. Typically, this costs about the same as you would pay for insurance. The benefits of a longer life plus the savings from a lifetime of better health make this a reasonable form of health care for most people.

During your initial visit, we will determine which parts of the basic program would be most beneficial for you, therefore determining the exact amount of your fees. We have a broad range of fee options to accommodate your personal budget and main objectives.

Treatment at Danville Holistic Medical Center is dependent on lab tests done. AMG doesn’t accept insurance, although the lab testing done in conjunction with treatment is usually covered by most insurance. We will help you with any paperwork necessary for you to provide this to your insurance company. The clinic will provide patients with all the information needed specific to each visit.
