Kansas City bio-identical hormone and age-management services
Rock Creek Wellness provides a cutting-edge approach to help both men and women in Kansas City regain quality of life through age-management services such as bio-identical hormone replacement, nutrition and exercise.
There’s a concert inside your body.
Bio-identical hormones may be instrumental.
For both men and women, a healthy lifestyle and higher hormone levels often act like instruments in an orchestra; each one relying on the other to make beautiful music.
But with age, hormone levels often decline, negatively impacting the body, mood, immune system, metabolism, growth and reproductive cycles. Changes in male and female hormones can even counteract the good nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices we make, preventing optimal health and well-being, disrupting the concert inside your body.
Symptoms associated with low hormone levels include:
- Fatigue/Decreased Stamina
- Weight Gain/Fluid Retention
- Mood Swings
- Low Libido
- Hot Flashes/Night Sweats
- Problems Sleeping
- Foggy Thinking
- Loss of Muscle/Strength
- Fatigue/Decreased Stamina
- Low Sex Drive
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Weight Gain
- Memory Loss
Natural hormone replacement therapy
At Rock Creek Wellness, we believe the music must go on.
Mark Strehlow, M.D., a Kansas City board-certified family physician and Gael Wheeler, D.O., board-certified in Osteopathic Family Medicine and Holistic Medicine, are both age-management specialists focusing on bio-identical hormone therapy and quality of life care. They will assess your individual needs and create a custom medical plan to restore your body’s natural rhythms.
Dr. Strehlow’s and Dr. Wheeler’s personalized, integrated approach features a combination of bio-identical hormone therapy, nutrition and exercise.
Bio-identical, or “natural,” hormone therapy replaces the hormones your body needs to function. Administration of hormones from other animals and synthetic derivatives has been linked to numerous health problems, including cancer.
Only bio-identical hormones can follow the normal metabolic pathway and be broken down into other hormones and derivatives needed by the body. Bio-identical hormones are, molecule-by-molecule, exactly the same as the hormones present in the human body.
Because hormones affect receptors throughout your body, hormone levels must be correct for you to feel your very best. It is recommended that both men and women get a baseline hormone evaluation between ages 35-40.
For optimal health, an integrated approach including bio-identical hormone therapy, nutrition and exercise are needed to restore your body’s natural rhythm.
At Rock Creek Wellness, we believe it’s about the quality of life.
