If you are a woman seeking relief from symptoms of menopause, you no longer have to endure hot flashing, temperature and mood swings or unexplained weight gain and insomnia.

If you are a man approaching the andropause who is living with the unwanted side effects of declining muscle mass and libido to match, you might want to consider Testosterone Replacement Therapy and find your way to a stronger, smarter, faster more virile you.

BHRT refers to the therapeutic use of hormones that are identical in every way to hormones produced naturally in your body. One common source of confusion is that the term “bioidentical” hormone implies that it is a “natural” hormone. Like pharmaceutical hormones, all bioidentical hormones are created synthetically from vegetable products in a chemical process that is not “natural.”

However, by the end of the process, hormones are produced that are identical on a molecular basis to their human counterparts and therefore are better understood as ‘human identical.’ Unfortunately, the scientific term “bioidentical” is the one used to describe this new horizon in medicine.

Unlike bioidentical hormones, pharmaceutical hormones have been molecularly altered from their human prototypes so that they can be patented and sold as a synthetic substance. It is these differences that appear to have created some of the problems associated with hormone therapy in the past.

All hormone therapy, whether pharmaceutical or bio-identical, carries risks and must be monitored closely.

Our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program is designed with the intent of relieving the symptoms of hormone imbalances and deficiencies while keeping your safety at the forefront. Bioidentical hormones used in BHRT include: estradiol, estriol, progesterone, DHEA, pregnenolone, thyroid and testosterone.

Our team of highly specialized Technicians and BHRT Specialist are looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your way forward to a total personalized health strategy.
