Restore Your Vitality and Zest for Life with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement!
If you’re feeling less energy these days, more aches and pains, or even a lower libido, hormones may be the cause. Men can lose hormones as they age, causing a wide range of symptoms. At Renewed Vitality in Dallas, we can ease those symptoms through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
At about 30, the average man begins to lose one to three percent of his testosterone per year. Along with the loss of testosterone, the glands produce less thyroid and other necessary hormones. This loss of hormones in men is known as andropause.
During andropause, you may experience:
- lowered sex drive and decreased performance
- weight gain or difficulty losing weight
- trouble sleeping
- lack of energy
- irregular blood sugar
- decreased muscle mass
- inability to build muscle
- loss of memory
Many men dismiss these changes as unavoidable signs of getting older — but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Our Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Specialists can adjust your hormone levels, thus improving your sex drive, memory, muscle strength, weight loss, and mood.*

Low Sex Drive and Hormones
A low sex drive doesn’t mean you have a poor relationship or difficulty dealing with emotions. It is a physical symptom of the body.
Both men and women can have a low sex drive — and it seems to strike at earlier and earlier ages.
Low hormone production is the core of the problem. As we age, hormones naturally decline — and stress can speed up the process, as can a heavy toxic load on the body.
Testosterone — one of the major hormones men can lose as they age — is essential for desire and arousal. It also allows increased blood flow to the genitalia, which improves sensitivity and responsiveness.
At Renewed Vitality, we use comprehensive laboratory blood tests to check your hormone levels. Then we develop your treatment plan using the best bioidentical hormones and natural supplements.
We will closely monitor your hormones until you reach levels that are ideal for you — and restore your naturally healthy sex drive.
What Exactly Are Bioidentical Hormones?
You may have heard the words synthetic, natural, and bioidentical with regard to hormones. A lot of confusion exists surrounding these words.
Most believe synthetic is bad and natural is good, and in most situations, this is true.
However, the most important issue is whether or not the hormone is 100% human bioidentical. The source of the hormone, whether natural or synthetic, is not as important as making sure the compound exactly matches what the body produces naturally. When a compound is bioidentical, the body can easily use it to heal itself.
The problem with most synthetics is that only synthetic hormones can be patented. Because of this, pharmaceutical companies have created synthetic hormones that attempt to mimic natural hormone function. Yet, these synthetics are structurally and functionally different from the natural hormones they are attempting to replace.
These synthetic hormones can help the initial symptoms, but often produce negative side effects such as bloating, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, increased clotting, heart disease, and possibly cancer.
Most natural hormones, by contrast, are substances that are structurally identical to those our bodies would normally produce. And natural, bioidentical hormones, instead of causing disease, can actually prevent disease and help maintain a healthy body.
Doctor Spurlock and our nurse practitioners are specialists who work to balance all of the following hormones: Testosterone, Thyroid, Adrenaline, DHEA, Human Growth Hormone, Insulin, Cortisol, and Pregnenolone.
Through treatment with bioidentical hormone replacement for men at Renewed Vitality, we can help restore your health and vitality.

Hormones and Their Function
Hormones are critical elements in almost every function of the body. Following are the most common hormones replaced in BHRT, and each plays a critical role in your physical and mental health.
Produced by the adrenal glands, testicles, and ovaries, testosterone is a vital hormone for both sexes. It contributes to muscle mass, strength, endurance, decreased fat, increased exercise tolerance, enhancement of well-being, and sex drive.
In men, testosterone protects against cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, and arthritis. It also leads to improved lean muscle mass, increased bone density, decreased cholesterol, improved skin tone, improved healing capacity and muscle repair, and increased libido and sexual performance.
It prolongs the quality of life by decreasing age-related diseases, similar to estrogen in women, including the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.
As one of the most abundant hormones in the body, DHEA also functions as a precursor hormone, which means that other hormones come from it. Mainly secreted by the adrenal glands, DHEA can also be secreted from the skin and brain.
DHEA is an essential component in many of the body’s metabolic and physiologic functions, including regulating hormone balance, building the immune system, reversing the effects of stress, making sex hormones, increasing short-term memory, and maintaining levels of well-being.
DHEA promotes an anabolic (protein-building) state, which increases lipolysis (the breakdown of fat). It also increases strength, energy, and libido. And several studies have linked DHEA to reduced cardiovascular risk and restored sexual vitality.
Thyroid hormone is produced by the thyroid gland and regulated by the pituitary gland. It is a metabolic hormone regulating temperature, metabolism, and cerebral function. It is a massive contributor to energy levels and the body’s ability to maintain a constant temperature.
The thyroid hormone helps remove toxic metals and chemicals, increases fat breakdown, improves hair growth of the scalp and eyebrows, and reduces cholesterol levels and body weight. It is vital in the prevention of cognitive deterioration.
The thyroid also serves as the Master Hormone, which gives it the ability to reduce cholesterol. Although infrequently used for this purpose, it probably is the safest and most beneficial cholesterol-reducing agent.
Pregnenolone serves as one of the major precursor hormones in our bodies. It is made in the brain and is a memory-enhancement hormone.
Pregnenolone is important to cellular repair, particularly in the brain and nervous tissue. It also protects against neuronal injury and aids cerebral function.
It is the main hormone used by the adrenal glands to make the adrenal hormones Cortisol, DHEA, Progesterone, Aldosterone, Testosterone, and Estrogens.
Produced by the pineal gland in the brain, melatonin regulates the circadian rhythm (pattern of wakefulness and sleeping). It acts as a neurotransmitter hormone.
Research has shown that cells of the body rejuvenate and repair during the deeper stages of sleep. These deeper sleep stages help produce natural “CD4” killer cells, which are vital to a strong and healthy immune system and aid in essential growth hormone production. Energy and moods are aided by deep sleep.
Disease prevention is linked to melatonin’s powerful antioxidant effects. A deficiency of melatonin is also linked to irritability, poor sleep, jet lag, hypersensitivity, and premature aging.
Melatonin has also been shown to reduce breast cancer cell development.
