Bio-Identical Hormones

Bio-Identical Hormones

Hormone imbalance is very common among women of all ages frequently showing up at times when hormone levels tend to fluctuate: puberty, pregnancy and menopause.

The key to restoring these levels is to first diagnose the imbalance,  then introduce natural Bio-Identical Hormones to replenish the body.

Common Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Brain fog
  • Decreased libido
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased muscle mass
  • Low energy
  • Sleep disturbance

Balance can be restored by treating root causes and replenishing with Bio-identical hormones.

What are Bio-identical Hormones?

Bio-identical Hormones are natural, plant derived prescription medications. They are identical in every way to hormones made by the body, making them extremely safe and effective. They must only be prescribed by a practitioner with a knowledge of human physiology, endocrinology and disease processes that may be associated with hormone imbalances. Using over the counter hormone treatments is discouraged.

The Benefits of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Once bio-identical hormones are introduced into the body, symptoms generally ease away and a sense of well being returns. By repairing the hormone foundation, we support the immune system, reduce inflammation and restore cellular communication. This has tremendous positive benefits on our brain, heart, bones, sleep, metabolism and sexual function.

What to Expect:

The key to balancing hormones is to first measure the baseline levels in the body using a combination of blood and saliva tests. Then, an individualized treatment plan is developed to meet your specific needs. Typically, women are treated with a combination of bio-identical hormones, botanicals, nutritional support and lifestyle modification. Saliva testing is usually repeated after 3-6 months to confirm hormone levels are in the target zone. Ongoing assessment is necessary as hormone requirements can change as the body regulates itself and/or ages.

Each and every patient is unique, so response to treatment varies. Some patients notice results within the first 2-3 weeks while others may need additional time and monitoring before experiencing remarkable improvement.
