Hormonal Imbalances

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

What is it?

Individuals going through hormonal changes, regardless of natural or surgical cause, could benefit from BHRT. The purpose of BHRT is to help the body function optimally, alieve symptoms from hormone imbalance, and restore the hormone balance to homeostasis.

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and soy. They are designed to imitate the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally in the body.  Based on your hormone levels, a specific protocol for your hormone replacement therapy can be designed and individually prepared by a compounding pharmacy. This is truly personalized medicine to help you look, feel and be your best.

Why do I need it?

Anyone with suspected hormonal imbalances could benefit for a hormone evaluation. Men and women suffering from acne, women experiencing premenstrual syndrome (PMS), perimenopause, menopause (surgical and natural), and men and women suffering from low libido would benefit from a hormonal evaluation and possible replacement.  Some examples of hormones imbalances are:

  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes
  • Acne
  • Migraines
  • Moodiness/irritability
  • Low libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Heavy menstruation
  • Belly fat
  • Hair loss
  • Depression
  • Memory loss
  • Poor concentration
  • Frequent vaginal infections
  • Anxiety
  • Night sweats
  • Irregular periods
  • Fluid retention

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and would like an evaluation for hormone assessment, make an appointment!
