This past week, the Mayor of Los Angeles, Karen Bass, invited the Los Angeles Consular Corps and the US Ambassador to the United Nations, the Hon Linda Thomas-Greenfield, to the Getty House for a private reception; I was honored to attend.

The Getty Mansion, also known as the Getty House, is a historic residence located in Los Angeles, California. Built in 1921 by Arthur Letts Sr., founder of the Broadway department store, the mansion showcases the Classical Revival architectural style. Since 1975, it has served as the official residence of the Mayor of Los Angeles, hosting various cultural, political, and official events. Mayor Thomas Bradley was the first Mayor to reside there and every Mayor since then has as well. Its historical significance, beautiful gardens, and symbolic importance as the Mayor’s residence make it a notable landmark in the city’s history.

The Getty House has been the site of numerous cultural and political events, as well as official functions hosted by the Mayor. These events often bring together influential figures from various sectors, making it a hub for civic engagement and social gatherings. The Getty House is known for its well-maintained gardens and landscaping. These green spaces provide a serene and picturesque setting, adding to the overall appeal of the residence. As the official residence of the Mayor, the Getty House holds symbolic importance as a representation of the city’s leadership and history.

Why Consider Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

by Dr. Juris Bunkis

As we age, our hormone levels naturally wane, leading to a decrease of energy, weight gain, lack of libido and a number of other traits we may consider “normal aging”. For those of us not wishing to “feel aged”, hormone replacement therapy is a great option. Synthetic hormones, often available in pill form, pastes or injections, can be associated with higher risks of cancer, blood clots and so forth. This is not the case with bio-identical hormone therapy.
Bio-identical hormone pelleting offers several advantages for hormone replacement therapy. Firstly, these pellets are derived from natural plant sources, making them biologically identical to human hormones, reducing the risk of adverse reactions and side effects.
The pellet delivery system provides a sustained and consistent release of hormones into the bloodstream over several months, eliminating the need for frequent injections or daily pill-taking. This steady hormone release ensures a more stable hormonal environment, resulting in improved symptom relief and overall well-being for patients.
The procedure is minimally invasive, performed under local anesthesia in a clinical setting, not much different from coming in for a Botox or filler injection. Patients can resume their daily activities shortly after the procedure.
Moreover, bio-identical hormone pelleting is customizable, allowing healthcare providers to tailor hormone dosages to each individual’s specific needs, ensuring optimized results for each patient. Regular monitoring and adjustments can be made as required, enhancing treatment effectiveness and patient satisfaction.
In summary, BioTe bioidentical hormone pelleting offers a safe, convenient, and personalized approach to hormone replacement therapy, providing patients with a better quality of life and hormonal balance. Come and see us if you would like to feel as good as you look!
