Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a treatment for hormone imbalances that occur in men and women due to aging or underlying medical conditions.

Bioidentical hormones are similar to the hormones your endocrine system produces naturally but come from yams and other plant materials.

Health Advantage Physical Medicine provides bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for adults. Team members are highly experienced in diagnosing hormone deficiencies and using bioidentical hormones to restore balance in your natural hormone levels.

When should I consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body that control many of your biological functions, including digestion, metabolism, and reproduction. When there’s even a small imbalance in your hormone levels, it can cause a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Hair loss
  • Hot flashes
  • Mental fog
  • Mood swings
  • Low sex drive
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Muscle and joint pain

Women may also experience irregular periods and unexpected weight gain when estrogen levels drop during the transition to menopause. Men can experience erectile dysfunction and loss of muscle mass when their testosterone levels are low.

Health Advantage Physical Medicine offers blood tests in-office to assess your hormone levels. Practitioners can also identify underlying medical issues that play a role in hormone imbalances.

How does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treat my symptoms?

Health Advantage Physical Medicine offers bioidentical hormone pellets to rebalance your natural hormone levels.

Your practitioner places the hormone pellet just under the surface of your skin during a simple in-office procedure. The pellet delivers a steady stream of hormones into your body to relieve your symptoms and support your overall wellness.

Bioidentical hormone pellets can last for several months before they need replacement. Ongoing treatment monitoringlets your practitioner know if changes need to me made to better control your symptoms.

Therapeutic services like acupuncture, massage therapy, and chiropractic adjustments are available to support symptom relief. Intravenous (IV) therapy is also an onsite treatment option to revitalize your energy levels and boost your overall wellness.
