Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Specialist
Age Healthier, Live Happier. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy assists the body in controlling the aging process through the endocrine and immune systems. Energy and quality of life decline as the function of these systems decline. Hormone therapy supplementation boosts the immune system as hormone levels are balanced. Keeping hormones in balance is known as hormone optimization which assists with anti-aging or preventing the debility and illness that are common in the aging process.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical Hormones, or natural hormones, have the same chemical structures as the hormones that occur in the body naturally. These hormones include the three estrogens: estrone, estradiol, and estriol, as well as progesterone, pregnenolone, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol. Hormones used in treatment are compounded by doctors and pharmacists from natural plant extracts. The results are hormones that work in conjunction with the body’s natural processes including improved sleep, energy, weight maintenance, mood, and overall quality of life. Our Bioidentical Hormone Therapy uses BioTE brand bioidentical hormone pellets.
Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
Some of the benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) include:
- Improved sleep
- Better mood, concentration and memory
- Reduced risk of depression
- Improved cholesterol levels
- Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease
- Reduced risk of osteoporosis and improved bone density
- Reduced incidence of hot flashes and vaginal dryness
- Reduced risk of endometrial and breast cancer
- Better maintenance of muscle mass and strength
- Improved libido
Many patients opt for BHRT because each bioidentical hormone prescription is custom-compounded, based on each patient’s individual diagnostic results, making bioidentical hormones safer and more effective in comparison to conventional (synthetic) hormones.
