Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Feel like yourself again

Women & Peri-menopause / Menopause

Symptoms begin to manifest themselves in women by their late 40s, early 50s leading women into a new stage of their lives, peri-menopause. This stage typically lasts about 4 years, once a woman has gone through 12 consecutive months without a period, they have entered into menopause. This transition can be especially difficulty for women, along with the shift in mental perception of themselves and the new stage in their lives. Peri-menopause/Menopause may be accompanied by a variety of symptoms that can be quite disruptive to their busy lives. Many women may experience menopausal symptoms for the rest of their lives, this is commonly due to adrenal and thyroid insufficiencies.

Some symptoms of peri-menopause and menopause include:

  • Emotional lability
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Hot flashes / chills
  • Sleep disturbances
  • New onset depression in late 40s / early 50s
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Joint pain

Men and Hormonal Imbalances

Hormonal imbalances equally affect men, including hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, and andropause. Most commonly we hear about menopause occurring in the late 40s or early 50s in women, however men start to experience andropause or “low T” symptoms around this age range too.

Testosterone is major hormone for men that regulates key functions including:

  • Hair growth
  • Bone mass
  • Libido
  • Mood
  • Confidence
  • Erectile function
  • Muscle mass

Andropause, or “Low T” can be devastating for men, signs and symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Lack of motivation
  • Sadness/mood changes
  • Weight gain
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sexual changes such as low libido
  • Thinning hair
  • Joint pain
  • Loss of muscle mass

These changes can affect a man’s mental outlook, their sense of self, and their relationship with their significant other.

Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy for Andropause/“Low T

BHRT for men allows for improvement in mood and well-being, reduces the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol while maintaining muscle mass and improving sexual health and function.

How can we balance our hormones?

The first step is to conduct a series of blood lab work tests to examine basic blood levels, hormonal levels, organ function, and evaluate stress response through cortisol levels. In addition, a comprehensive evaluation and physical exam are necessary to fully evaluate the patient’s individual case.

Treatment can include:

  • Functional medicine to optimize organ function
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medical nutrition
  • Personalized supplementation
  • Botanical medicine therapy
  • Bioidentical hormones
