Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Men & Women

Our weight loss clinic is excited to offer Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) as a health option for men and women! BHRT could help alleviate the symptoms caused by the natural decrease in production of hormones by the body. This treatment option also can give the protective benefits which were originally provided by naturally occurring hormones and help to re-establish a hormonal balance.

Since 2001, we have been helping men and women to naturally balance their hormones, with the potential of improving overall quality of life. We realize that hormone therapy should not be “one size fits all” approach, which is why we customize a treatment plan that fits your needs. We proudly use a PCAB Accredited Pharmacy for all of our compounding needs, as your safety is our top priority. All compounding pharmacies are regulated by each state, however, accreditation is a more comprehensive way to ensure they are meeting the highest quality and safety standards. We have found that using a PCAB Accredited pharmacy helps in making the compounding medications consistent every time.

Women

At our weight loss clinic, there are several steps we take to create the best plan possible. We utilize saliva testing for women to determine what your body is no longer producing. Saliva testing is much more specific and correctly identifies the level of hormones at the cellular level, in contrast to a serum (blood) test, which measures the level of hormones circulating in the bloodstream. When your hormone levels are unbalanced, the symptoms can include the following:

  • Exhaustion/Low Energy
  • Anxiety
  • Hot Flashes
  • Uncomfortable Intercourse
  • Low Libido
  • Mental Fog
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Weight Gain

Men

Testosterone, the main male hormone, is best tested through a blood test, which is found to be extremely effective when treating men for replacement therapy. We perform all lab testing in-house which makes for quicker result times. The following symptoms could indicate that you need BHRT:

  • Low Libido
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Increased Irritability
  • Exhaustion/Low Energy
  • Reduced Muscle Mass/Strength
  • Inability to concentrate

Female BHRT

For your body to function properly, hormone levels should be balanced. When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can cause chronic symptoms and disorders, and raise risks for disease.If you have tried to figure out what is happening or perhaps treated your symptoms in ways that don’t seem to work, testing your hormones may be the first step to feeling better.

A whole host of symptoms may signify an imbalance:

  • Depression
  • Loss of libido
  • Fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Headaches
  • Infertility
  • Weight Gain
  • Irritability

Bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources and are created to replicate the chemical structure of the hormones found in our bodies. Based on your specific levels, we can create a hormone regimen designed just for you.

BENEFITS OF BHRT

Natural hormones are identical to your own hormones. Unlike synthetic formulas, natural hormones have exactly the same chemical structure as those found in your body.

With BHRT treatments performed at our weight loss clinic, it could reduce symptoms of menopause. Many women enjoy complete relief from uncomfortable menopausal symptoms with this treatment.

As a second benefit, there are few side effects. Since they are identical to your own hormones, you do not have to worry about the uncomfortable and potentially dangerous side effects often experienced with synthetic hormone treatments.

Since each person is unique, each patient who comes to our weight loss clinic receives individualized doses to meet their unique needs. When working with a physician and a compounding pharmacist, each patient can receive specific amounts of each hormone to create the therapy that is just right for them.

Male BHRT

For your body to function properly, hormone levels should be balanced. When levels of each hormone are in the right proportions, body systems are stable. When balance is lost, hormone deficiencies and excesses can cause chronic symptoms and disorders, and raise risks for disease.

Typical symptoms of low testosterone include:

  • Low sex drive
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
  • Fatigue
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Increased Irritability or depression
  • Reduced muscle mass and strength
  • Decreased bone density; osteoporosis

As men get older, the ability to produce testosterone declines. Studies show that men lose testosterone at a rate of 1 to 2 percent a year after age 30.
