Moscow Russia Longevity | Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy | GLMED
Over the past few months we have begun discussing a possible clinic launch in Moscow. We are working with local partners to do so.
From our own research, Moscow is very limited with access to professional bioidentical hormone replacement and nutrition coaching for age management purposes. There is a new provider called GL-MED, but they are virtually the only recognized player in the Moscow area offering anything close to what is offered in the USA and by the Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic.
For example, Moscow has one of the largest density of billionaires of any major city. Yet, a simple search for GL-MED on a search engine shows 43,000 searches. It looks like the local population in Moscow is searching for facial lotions, not for true bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Review of the GL-MED website is impressive. They have an excellent color scheme for an eastern bloc country offering age management services like testosterone replacement therapy and human growth hormone replacement therapy. Unlike western cultures who prefer blue color tones for medical anti-aging sites, the GL-MED website incorporates earth tones. The GL-MED look and feel is soft, yet sophisticated.
As we discuss our unique hormone management program along with excellent nutrition and wellness coaching with our Russian partners, they still raise the concern that conventional medical doctors view hormone replacement and optimization as taboo. Even in Russia. Even in Moscow, which is hard to believe in such a sophisticated city.
The excellent contribution GL Med is making in Moscow and Russia creating awareness for bioidentical hormone replacement is very encouraging. The benefits of age management and anti-aging medicine with hormone replacement are many. We applaud gl-med’s effort and look forward to launching our unique approach in Russia very soon.
So why do so many doctors, even in Moscow, get concerned with HRT?
Well, surprisingly, to this day, many physicians lack the knowledge on the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies. Many of these doctors remain stuck in the past, basing their beliefs in outdated research. They continue to accept dogma that has consistently been debunked by major business globally offering anti-aging medical services. Without understanding the difference between natural bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and synthetic hormones, this is a logical response.
Note: Synthetic hormones like Premarin (made from horse urine) are to blame for the confusion.
You see, synthetic hormones are synthesized in a lab. They are altered so pharmaceutical companies can patent the molecular structure of their invention. We called these Franke0stien-Hormones named after Dr. Frankenstein. They’re not ideal for health and wellness and have been correlated to increases cancer rates and other negative side-effects.
On the other hand, bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and genetically engineered to be the exact same molecular structure as your own hormones. These hormones naturally enhance the important signaling and messaging within the body. They do so without negative side-effects, when dosed at appropriate physiological levels. This is critical to cell repair and rejuvenation.
GL-MED appears to be well on its way in Moscow communicating this important message to its local population. Especially those elites and upper middle class, searching for ways to live healthier, with more vitality and well-being.
Can GL-MED help women in Moscow? Of course. Women going through menopause often use synthetic hormones to treat symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and low libido. This is true around the world, like Moscow and other parts of Russia. These menopausal symptoms generally occur because of declining estrogen levels. Bioidentical hormone replacement should be the first choice of any hormone replacement protocol.
This is why we encourage bioidentical hormones for HRT. Often, the human body sees synthetic hormones as foreign toxins. Why? Because their molecular structure has been slightly modified. Key molecules are altered or are completely different than our own hormones. This is done by big pharma. That’s so they can patent it and maintain their unique position in the market.
Bioidentical hormones are different. Big pharma cannot patent the natural hormone structure of the human body, and that’s what bioidentical hormones are – an identical molecular structure to our own.
The body views non bioidentical hormones as unnatural hormones and as toxic. The body cannot “harmoniously & Synergistically” metabolize the modified chemical structure of synthetic unnatural hormones. Pseudo-hormones if you will. Results? Over time often it leads to negative side effects in the metabolic function of the complex operation of the human body.
Again, it is important to reiterate, this is not the case with bioidentical hormones. There is no direct evidence that bioidentical hormones, prescribed in optimal amounts within natural physiological ranges have any negative side-effects. All side-effects of bioidentical hormones are positive.
Bioidentical hormones must be prescribed by a trained doctor experienced in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. We generally encourage anyone seeking this treatment be board certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. If and when we open our services in Moscow, we will of course only do so with physicians trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy by our board certified physicians.
Additionally, we require all our physicians to pass their Anti-Aging Board Certification with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, to work for our clinics. This is true even in Moscow and in other parts of Russia. It is so important.
Please note that synthetic hormones have been related to:
- Blood clots
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Cardiovascular diseases
Only use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Only get your therapy from properly trained physicians. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) is currently the best source for this education. At least as it related to bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
We look forward to launching in Moscow soon. We also applaud the work the GL-MED is doing at brining awareness and education to this historic and beautiful city.
