It’s impossible to avoid many of the environmental and lifestyle factors that can lead to premature aging—like sun damage or stress—but both men and women are turning back the hands of time by learning how to manage the metabolic and hormonal causes of age-related symptoms from menopause to hair loss.
“When it comes to hormonal therapies, the goal is to bring your hormones back into balance so patients are no longer as symptomatic and can function better in their day-to-day lives,” explains Dr. Camille Semple-Daly, who is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, integrative medicine and aesthetic medicine. Her practice, Replenish Center, in Willingboro, offers integrative medicine as well as aesthetics and gynecology.
Among her practice’s offerings is Bioidentical Hormone Restoration Therapy, or BHRT; her method of Pellet BHRT more closely mimics the body’s ability to deliver necessary hormones to the organs in need. Patients may benefit from this therapy if they’re experiencing symptoms including anxiety and depression, fatigue, insomnia, hot flashes, low libido or erectile dysfunction, hair loss, sleep issues, irritability, vaginal dryness or weight gain.
Women that are already suffering from symptoms of menopause or may be battling heavy or painful periods, ovarian diseases or unexplained infertility—or men that have been diagnosed with thyroid disorders, adrenal fatigue or osteoporosis—can also benefit from BHRT. Its benefit is that alternative treatments for these types of conditions can lead to serious health issues ranging from blood clots to heart disease, she notes.
“These therapies are designed to help patients take charge of their health, return to optimal function and enhance their lives,” Semple-Daly explains. “The goal is to get to a point where you’re not just existing, but thriving… and doing so in a great state of mind and health.”
Many Americans struggle with weight gain, and part of the reason may be that people don’t always understand the root causes of why they’re having weight issues. “Most of it has to do with your lifestyle, but sometimes there are underlying factors that need to addressed,” she explains. Her practice offers a weight management program that helps patients lose weight quickly and safely while also helping them recognize why they may be gaining weight in the first place.
Further, for those problem areas that won’t respond to diet and exercise—like love handles—there are cutting-edge procedures like liquid lipo injections to help permanently eliminate fat in those problem areas. “The treatment is permanent as long as patients don’t gain the weight back; the body eliminates the fat cells through its own detoxification systems, but they can grow back with weight gain,” Semple-Daly further elaborates.
Among the practice’s most cutting-edge therapies is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), which can use the body’s own growth factors to restore vitality and replenish depleted resources with natural components. It can also be used to stimulate the natural production of collagen and both reverse and prevent premature skin aging.
PRP procedures include the trademarked Vampire Facials to reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks and Vampire Facelifts to restore volume, tone and smoothness to the skin; it can also be used to treat hair loss and male and female sexual dysfunction. The procedures are considered natural, safe and effective because they concentrate the regenerating cells from the patient’s own body and place them directly into the area where they’re needed; PRP injections trademarked as O-Shot and Performance-Shot, for example, can address sexual issues ranging from stamina and erectile dysfunction in men to urinary incontinence and lubrication in women.
“PRP can bolster your own body's mechanics for healing itself,” she explains. “For the most part, our bodies are self-healing systems, but when those systems become overly taxed, they tend to break down… so this is one of the many ways we can help the body heal itself, which can be more sustaining than trying to fix a problem with drugs or surgery.”
