The body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They are the internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate everything from digestion, metabolism, appetite, immune function, mood, brain function and sexual function. When hormones are out of balance, it can have a big impact on health and overall well-being.
BHRT can be used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly used in addition to DHEA and Pregnenolone in treatment. Thyroid hormones are extremely important for the body and correction of low Thyroid hormone levels with bioidentical hormones can help patients in many ways. Treating Adrenal fatigue also is important to maintain healthy hormonal balance in the body.
We work with compounded bioidentical hormones that are custom made by a compounding pharmacy, according to doctor’s orders specifically tailored to the needs of an individual based on their blood work.
Bioidentical hormones are different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in that they’re identical chemically to those our bodies produce naturally and are made from plant estrogens.
