What is bioidentical hormone therapy and how does it help?
Simply put, bioidentical hormone therapy uses natural methods to balance hormone levels that are too high or too low. Many of these ‘too high’ or ‘too low’ hormone levels are the root cause for many of the ailments that plague a large portion of the population. Just a few issues that may be caused by hormone inbalance:
- Weight Gain/Inability To Lose Weight
- Changes In Mood Regulation
- Decreased Sex Drive
- Brain Fog/Memory Issues
- Temperature Regulation (Too Hot or Too Cold)
- Changes in Vision
- Skin/Hair Thinning/Drying Out
Do any of these sound familiar?
Doctors theorize that possible environmental factors such as environmental toxins and even substances called “xenoestrogens” have contributed interfering with the body’s ability to normally produce and secrete hormones in the right amounts and at the right times.
Of course, all of these things didn’t pop up overnight. The process started gradually and over months or years has finally taken its toll. You looked in the mirror and felt enough is enough, it’s time to fix all of this once and for all using bioidentical hormone therapy.
Maybe your regular doctor has ordered standard hormonal testing before and maybe even explained the results to you. But if you’re still having problems there is a very good reason for this.
The traditional blood tests for women are LH (Luteinizing hormone) and FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone). The traditional blood test for men is Testosterone. However, there are dozens of other crucial hormones that play a vital role in determining what’s going on inside your body.
That’s why we pride ourselves on using comprehensive hormone testing profiles that look at more than 30 hormones and metabolites. We also look deeper by determining the specific form of each hormone. For example, Free Testosterone(the actual key marker for men) vs. a regular Testosterone level.
Based on these comprehensive test results, we can then formulate a customized plan to rebalance your hormones. Most patients typically take oral capsules or creams that rub onto the skin. And once we get your levels balanced, you can start feeling great again!
We use the safest, highest quality and most effective bio-identical hormone replacement therapy available today.
So take back your life from the disheartening and frustrating symptoms, and really start living life again!
