What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy:
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the term for the treatment of symptoms and conditions caused by the effects of aging and hormone deficiencies resulting from menopause and andropause (male menopause). Bioidentical Hormone Replacement uses hormones that are identical in their molecular structure to the hormones produced naturally within the human body.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is used more generally to describe the practice of using only bioidentical hormones in the treatment of all hormone deficiencies, not just menopause. These include perimenopause, andropause, thyroid, adrenal fatigue and weight loss.
Hormones regulate the activity of cells and tissues in the body. Optimized and balanced hormones are essential to good health and a feeling of well-being. In both men and women, hormones decrease with age causing a wide range of symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, loss of sex drive depression and disrupted sleep patterns (insomnia). The hormones estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, thyroid and cortisol all play a very serious role in daily life and health and an imbalance can impact life dramatically.
Many people resign themselves to living with the serious symptoms caused by hormone imbalance, accepting them as an unchangeable and an untreatable part of the aging process. However, maintaining optimum levels of hormones promotes an improved quality of life and prevents many of the degenerative illnesses commonly associated with aging.
Bioidentical Hormones are derived from plants, such as yam or soy and are chemically and functionally identical to human hormones. Bioidentical Hormones produce the same responses in the body as hormones made by the body without increased risk of allergic reaction and sensitivities.
Our approach is to individualize treatment plans for each patient based on medical history, physical examination, symptoms and laboratory analysis. The prescription is tailored to the exact amount of each hormone needed for the individual’s balance. We focus on Bioidentical Hormone restoration and optimization.
