What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
BHRT replaces hormones that have declined due to aging, stress and other conditions. BHRT can relieve many symptoms that may cause health conditions if not treated. BHRT is all-natural and plant-based and is tailored to your individual needs.
All-Natural and Plant-Based
BHRT is derived from plants and has the same molecular structure as naturally found in our bodies. They are matched and compounded based on an individuals’ needs with high quality and all-natural, no artificial ingredients.
After testing and determination of need, we offer Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) that is administered by a nurse, Physician Assistant or Medical Doctor, using a high quality compounded bioidentical hormone and results are monitored and adjustments made based on an individual basis.
Applying creams topically are a fast and easy method of hormone treatment. They are best applied to areas that will not cause transference, such as the inner thigh. Progesterone, estrogen, testosterone and DHEA are all available for this delivery system in a lotion or cream form.
Hormones can be given by mouth and can be effective if taking regularly. Some may opt for other options due to difficulty taking pills or non-compliance due to inability to keep up the regimen and therefore resulting in poor outcome.
Therapies for Women
Many women may experience anxiety, fatigue, loss of sleep that they are told is normal and may be prescribed medications such as anti-depressants or anti-anxiety that mask the symptoms but do not treat the root cause. Hormone imbalances, either too much or too little, could be the main culprit and bringing the endocrine system back in balance can lead to a healthier, happier life.
Some common symptoms in women include:
- Change in menstrual cycle (heavy, irregular, painful)
- Hot flashes
- Night Sweats
- Decreased libido
- Vaginal dryness/painful intercourse
- Brain Fog/forgetfulness
- Mood changes
Therapies for Men
Testosterone is the main sex hormone in men. Men experience a decrease in testosterone, known as Andropause, that occurs gradually over time as men age. Since it is occurring gradually, the effects may be more subtle rather than occurring suddenly over a shorter period of time. Besides some common symptoms such as anxiety, fatigue, and hair loss there are other signs that may be the cause of out of sync hormones including:
- Loss in Muscle Mass
- Decreased sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Memory changes
