June is Men’s Health Month
Skip the tie or barbecue tools for Father’s Day. Instead, help the man you love discover new vitality and well-being at Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health and Wellness.
Often, that journey starts with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
“While the majority of our patients seeking help for hormonal imbalance are women,” says James Mirabile, M.D., FACOG, medical director and founder of Mirabile M.D., “we’re seeing more and more men at our medical center.”
Recommended by women who care
“Many of our male patients are encouraged to come here by their wives or girlfriends—even daughters and colleagues—who have noticed a decline in the man’s health, vigor or mental acuity; all symptoms that can be demonstrably helped by hormone therapy,” says Dr. Mirabile.
But more and more men are making appointments on their own after seeing the remarkable strides the women in their lives are achieving when hormonal levels are balanced via Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Testosterone — a Man’s Most Vital Hormone
Beginning at age 30, men manufacture less and less of this all-important hormone. Then, usually between age 40 and 50, testosterone levels drop dramatically and signal the onset of andropause, the medical term for the male equivalent of menopause.
Symptoms include losing muscle mass, feeling sluggish, finding it hard to concentrate and becoming irritable.
That irritability convinced Tom to seek help at Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health and Wellness. As someone in the public eye as a server at a popular restaurant, it was affecting his work as well as his love life.
Like a lot of men, Tom had tried a number of treatments to ease his moodiness and lack of energy. “I should have known better, but I bought testosterone creams at a gym. They were messy and didn’t do anything to minimize my problems.”
A return to exercise—and romance
Tom was the ideal patient for SottoPelle®, a bio-identical hormone therapy method administered by a small pellet placed under the skin. The pellets (about the size of a grain of rice) work automatically by secreting the right amount of hormones into the blood stream.
When more hormones are needed due to stress at work or exercise—such as Tom’s love of mountain biking—the body responds and delivers more hormones. No other form of therapy, including capsules, pills, creams or patches can produce the consistent level of testosterone that pellets can.
Eliminated “roller-coaster” moods
For Tom, the pellets eliminated what he called his “roller-coaster” moods within a few weeks of his first visit with Dr. Mirabile.
“Honestly, it was like night and day,” he says. He laughs about the change in his disposition with a testimony that reflects his bigger-than-life personality. “I no longer wanted to kill (not literally) anyone.”
Tom also appreciates the ease of treatment.
“No more messy creams or forgetting to take a pill,” Tom says. “With my busy schedule, getting the pellets implanted every six months is super convenient.”
Another health benefit for long-term use
Dr. Mirabile also points out an important health advantage of SottoPelle pellets versus creams, shots, patches or pills. “The tiny pellets are placed painlessly in the subcutaneous fat, usually in the hip. It’s not metabolized by the GI tract, liver or kidneys.
“The right amount of hormones is released through the capillaries to match up with the levels in your brain, as needed,” Dr. Mirabile says. For men, pellet re-insertions are needed every six to seven months. For women, it’s usually every three to four months.
A latte or a life-changing treatment
When he talks about the cost of pellet therapy, Tom says “It’s about the same as a coffee drink a day. But how I feel now; it’s priceless.”
“It’s more than just my overall mood that’s improved,” he says. “I’ve lost weight and I enjoy working out again. I finished a grueling mountain trek in Colorado feeling like I was 20 again.”
“And let’s just say my love life has improved as well,” Tom says with a smile. “Over the past few years I honestly just had no desire. My sex drive is definitely back.”
A gift for him—and you
Father’s Day 2018 is the ideal time to encourage the man in your life to make a healthy lifestyle change, whether through a subtle suggestion or—if needed—a strong push.
Circle this article and give him a gift certificate to Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health and Wellness. Along with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, he’ll discover a vast variety of other treatments to help him look and feel his best.
These include Medi-Weightloss®, a medically supervised weight loss program that helps patients attain long-term results.
Another division of Mirabile M.D. Beauty, Health and Wellness is MedCosmetic, a medical spa that offers the latest in aesthetic services suitable for men as well as women.
Subtle changes make big differences in confidence
More and more, men are seeking ways to look more youthful and vital with procedures like Botox; skin rejuvenating laser treatments; and Ultherapy, a non-invasive, skin-tightening miracle worker for the face and neck.
Most of these require little or no down time. And the changes can be subtle; men often hear they look well rested or back from vacation.

SottoPelle helps both men and women restore hormonal balance.
The only method that allows the body to control the release of hormones – raising levels when more hormone is needed and decreasing it when requiring less.
Delivers a very low dose of hormones continuously, 24/7.
Releases hormones directly into the bloodstream, thereby passing the gastrointestinal system and liver.
Decades of positive research show bio-identical hormone pellets to be safe and the most effective hormone delivery method available when properly administered.
In fact, hormone pellets are the only form of hormone replacement therapy to closely mimic what the human ovary and testicle do.
Dr. Mirabile is proud to have been on the national SottoPelle Advisory Board and the former SottoPelle Medical Director.
