Hormone therapy

Bio-identical HRT

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a powerful tool in combating the effects of hormonal changes as we age. Both men and women can benefit from this proven therapy. Uncomfortable symptoms of Menopause and Andropause (male Menopause) can be dramatically improved.

Symptoms of Unbalanced Hormones:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Weight Gain
  • Low Sex Drive and Performance
  • Poor Concentration
  • Decreased Muscle Mass
  • Poor Exercise
  • Hair Loss
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Poor Sleep

BHRT is customized to the individual based on a simple laboratory test to identify hormonal imbalances. The bioidentical hormones are then prescribed and compounded by a specialty pharmacy that is trained in BHRT. Your Doctor will prescribe a compound to address imbalances in estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, cortisol, thyroid, and Vitamin D. Leveling your hormones can have a profound impact on your weight loss efforts, improving results drastically.

What is the difference between Bio Identical and synthetic hormones?

Unlike Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy, BHRT Uses Hormones That Derived From Natural Plant Sources Such As Soy And Yams, BioIdentical Hormones Can Be More Easily Assimilated By The Body Without The Side Effects Commonly Associated With Synthetics.

While both BioIdentical and Synthetic Hormones are created in lab, how they are used and how they work with the body has significant differences. BioIdentical hormones are 100% naturally derived, from plants such as soy and yams and are Biologically Identical To The Hormones In Our Bodies. Additionally, BioIdentical hormones can be adjusted for the individual more precisely. Synthetic hormones are patented by pharmaceutical companies and only sold in specific strengths. Because BioIdentical Hormones are not patented, your doctor can adjust how your medication is compounded more acutely. Your specific dosage is truly yours, based on your hormone balancing needs.
Another advantage of BioIdentical Hormones is that they are created to be structurally the same as human endogenous hormones. This leads to fewer side effects and improved effectiveness. BioIdentical Hormones work in harmony with your body.

 

Do I need a prescription for Bio Identical Hormones?

Yes. Your prescription is compounded specifically for your hormone balancing needs. Throughout the course of your treatment, we will routinely check your hormone levels and adjust your medication as your own hormone production stabilizes.
