Whether you are experiencing perimenopause, menopause, or andropause (“the male menopause”), bioidentical hormones will help you stay young, healthy, energetic and vibrant. Are you feeling depressed? Are you experiencing insomnia, mood swings, weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, poor concentration, hot flashes, and/or limited energy? If you have any one or all of these symptoms, you are most likely suffering from hormone deficiencies.
Along with a proper dietary regimen, anaerobic and aerobic exercise, balanced hormone levels are the keys to a healthy lifestyle. “Think of hormones, nutrition, and fitness as a three-legged stool. You cannot have optimal health if one ‘leg’ is missing. You need to know a doctor with specialty training in all three,” Dr. Timothy Morley observes.
Not everyone is a candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), which must be undertaken with the careful, expert supervision of a trained medical doctor like Dr. Timothy Morley, a widely respected authority in his field.
Although hormone deficiencies are typically natural consequences of the aging process, that does not mean that we have to surrender to the whims of time. At the New York Health and Wellness center, we are committed to tailoring bioidentical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT) to your individual conditions and needs, with a view to ameliorating and, in some cases, obliterating physical distress and the symptoms most commonly associated with aging.
Many people fear the mere mention of hormone replacement therapy because they erroneously misconstrue bioidentical hormones for dangerous synthetic drugs that simulate or act like natural, safe hormone replacement.
The crucial, fundamental difference between synthetic hormones and bioidentical hormones is that the latter occur naturally in the body and, as such, cannot be patented. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, such as Premarin® and Provera®, are so molecularly different from naturally occurring hormones, that they pose a risk of serious diseases, such a breast cancer.
By celebrating the uniqueness of each individual, we take pride in offering you personalized attention and developing a treatment plan designed just for you, taking fear entirely out of the equation. We want you to live a life free of dis-ease in all respects, and we work tirelessly with you to attain that goal. Simply feeling “OK” or “the same as usual” is not the attainment of optimum health, for which all of us should and have a right to strive, regardless of age. As Dr. Morley notes, “you are cheating yourself by being satisfied with ‘normal.’ The goal should be to achieve your optimal health.”
Hormone replacement is one vital “leg of the stool” that often makes the difference. Safe and natural hormone replacement involves replenishing the naturally occurring hormones in your body. These are:

- Sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone).
- Adrenal hormones (e.g., cortisol, the weight and stress-response hormone, and DHEA, which regulates cognition, weight, and the immune system, among other functions).
- Thyroid hormones (T3-T4, which control metabolism and affect every cell in the body).
- Melatonin (associated with circadian rhythm — sleep-wake cycles, and the central nervous system, among other functions). It’s also the strongest anti-oxidant in your body.
A delicate balance of these hormones is required to ward off age-related diseases and other symptoms of declining health and vitality. By balancing your hormones naturally, you can avoid and/or ameliorate such maladies as heart disease, stroke, autoimmune diseases, insomnia, obesity, diabetes, alopecia (hair loss), stress, chronic fatigue, and a variety of other ailments.
Many physicians diagnose symptoms; but Dr. Morley diagnoses patients. If you address him with depression issues, for example, he won’t simply provide a pill and send you home. Rather, he will examine the underlying causes of your malaise, viewing the whole person and listening to your assessment of your condition and treatment objectives. In other words, he will be your co-partner in the attainment of optimal health.
Release the shame and humiliation often associated with under par feelings and performance in your daily life. Avoid the albatross of rote diagnoses that merely treat symptoms, not people, sometimes leading to even greater difficulties than you initially experienced.
