Our patients come to us because they want to feel better, look better and improve their quality of life. Common complaints include weight gain, memory loss, dull hair and skin, fatigue, depression, stress, sleep deprivation, sexual dysfunction and mood swings. Some patients simply say they just “don’t feel like themselves.”
In order to address these, and other concerns, we offer individualized treatment plans for each patient through:
- Hormone Deficiencies Analysis
- Vitamin and Nutrient Deficiencies Analysis
- Vitamins compounded for each patient
- Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) means that the chemical makeup of the replacement hormone is exactly the same as what the human body produces. The ideal substances for hormone replacement therapy are readily available. Bio-identical plant-derived estrogen and progesterone products have been safely prescribed by European physicians for over 50 years. These natural hormones are almost entirely without the side effects of the synthetic or semisynthetic HRT drugs which do not allow a person to produce the full range of other hormones which are needed for the body to function at full potential.
Unfortunately, many doctors are unaware of these natural bio-identical hormones. Since natural hormones can not be patented, manufacturers lack financial incentive to fund research and development costs to commercially market these substances,. And physicians receive little information on bio-identical progesterone, estriol, estrabiol, estrone, and andgrogens.
Women are no longer willing to accept the risks associated with synthetic hormones, and are searching for safer alternatives. New research is continually emerging. Over two million women are now benefiting from “plant-derived bio-identical” estrogens, progesterone, and androgens.
Various dosage forms can be compounded to meet the specific needs of each woman, including:
- Transdermal or transmucosal dosage forms such as gels, troches or suppositories.
Non-oral absorption avoids fist pass liver metabolism, providing a more reliable extent of
absorption which is independent of liver function.
- Capsules containing micronized particles for enhanced oral absorption.
- Many unique formulations to meet each woman’s specific needs.
