Hormones are chemicals secreted by glands in your body that are needed for many of the body’s processes such as sexual function, brain function, digestion and growth.
As we age, hormone levels change, sometimes resulting in diminished levels that need to be optimized for you to feel your best. Bio-Identical hormones are hormones found in nature that are identical to those in your body. Bio-Identical hormones replace these diminished levels through a treatment called Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, bringing balance back to your hormone levels and your life.
Symptoms that can be treated with Hormone Replacement Therapy:
- Night Sweats
- Sexual Dysfunction or low libido
- Problems Sleeping
- Loss of Energy
- Loss of Muscle Mass
- Weight Gain
- Foggy thinking or “Brain Fog”
- Mood Changes
- Memory Loss
- Symptoms of Menopause
- Symptoms of PMS
How Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Works
Treatment starts with labs to learn your specific imbalances, whether that be in progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormones, or cortisol (stress) hormones. Once we learn your imbalances, a plan is developed to help correct your symptoms and make you feel better.
Bio-Identical hormones are administered in a variety of formats such as pills, creams, gels and shots. Once administered we closely monitor your hormone levels to make sure you are achieving your therapeutic goals with the correct hormone dosage. Your dosage can be adjusted whenever needed to get the optimal balance necessary for your body.
