Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
All of our hormone treatments use “bioidentical“ preparations to seek a balance of male or female hormones within the optimal limits of the normal reference range. This provides a foundation for maximum efficiency metabolism. This is done in a natural fashion with the bioidentical hormones being the exact same molecule as hormones that are naturally produced in the body. As opposed to traditional (i.e. synthetic or animal-derived) hormones, these bioidentical hormones are derived from plant sources; once they are in the bloodstream, however, the body cannot distinguish them from those produced by the body itself.
These result in long term preventive health benefits and reduce risks associated with aging without introducing a synthetic, foreign molecule which can be metabolized into byproducts that confer potential for side effects and serious adverse reactions such as clotting and an increased risk of cancer. Based on an evolving body of scientific evidence, more than 15 major medical organizations now endorse bio-identical hormone therapy as a safe and effective treatment plan for many symptoms and health conditions associated with hormone deficiency.
