Symptoms of hormone imbalance vary greatly from person to person. They may include PMS, hot flashes, insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, low sex drive, weight gain, low motivation, vaginal dryness and acne. If you struggle with any of these symptoms and they are hormone related, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy may be beneficial.
For woman experiencing PMS, or unpleasant hormonal side effects due to menopause, peri-menopause; or, a man with a diagnosed testosterone imbalance, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a consideration.
Bio-identical hormones (BHRT) are made to match the molecular structure of hormones present in your body. These hormones bind to your body’s hormone receptors (similar to docking stations) in the exact same way as the hormones produced naturally by your body. After getting to know our patients and establishing a baseline hormone level with appropriate testing, BHRhe dosage can be tailored to each individual to achieve optimal levels and symptom relief.
Bio-identical hormone replacement can be delivered via the method that is best suited to your specific needs. The delivery methods used at Whole Health include creams, pills or troches. In order to achieve best results, BHRT is often paired with other tools in our naturopathic tool box including nutritional counseling, herbal or vitamin/mineral suggestions, and encouragement for optimizing sleep, stress management and exercise routine.
