Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

BECAUSE YOU ARE MORE THAN JUST YOUR SYMPTOMS

helping you recover your focus, sleep, mood, and energy through one of life's most significant transitions to get back to feeling like the woman you are capable of being

Hormones are vital chemical messengers that control the body's communication pathways and affect many aspects of overall health. While natural therapies and diet changes should alway be considered as first line therapy when appropriate, sometimes herbs, minerals and diet just aren't enough to reinstate balance. This is where BHRT comes in.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalances can include but are not limited to: hot flashes, night sweats, difficult menopause & peri-menopause, andropause, PMS and painful periods, endometriosis, irregular periods/amenorrhea, fertility issues, PCOS, abnormal hair growth, hair loss, weight gain, muscle loss, decreased libido, fatigue, thyroid dysfunction, bone loss, anxiety/ depression, brain fog, etc.

what are bioidentical hormones?

Unlike synthetically formulated hormones, bioidentical hormones have the same molecule structure as those occurring in men and women. Because they have a chemical structure identical to endogenous human hormones, they bind to and activate our receptors in the same way our own endogenous hormones do.

Bioidentical hormones can be used to correct hormonal imbalances and deficiencies in estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid hormones. They can also be used to replace synthetic hormone replacement therapy should the patient's lab values appear normal, but symptomatically they remain feeling unwell.

Estradiol, Estriol, Bi-Est (combo)

Progesterone

Natural Dessicated Thyroid

applied topically in bioidentical formate to replace deficient hormones and reduce symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, and brain fog

topical use minimizes side effects & risks associated with HRT 

an important reproductive hormone, progesterone is critical in balancing estrogen's impact on our endometrial lining, regulating our menstrual cycles, improving sleep and reducing anxiety

unlike synthetic progestins, this hormone molecularly mirrors our own progesterone and has not been shown to increase breast cancer risk

use of NDT differs from traditional synthetic thyroid hormone in that it is a mammal extract containing a combination of both T3 & T4 hormones

may benefit those struggling to convert their medication and presenting with low-grade thyroid symptoms despite 'normal' blood work

why bioidentical over synthetic?

When considering bioidentical vs synthetically formulated hormones, efficacy, side effects, and overall safety must be considered.
