Our bodies age because our hormone levels decrease over time. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the science of replenishing and optimizing hormone deficiencies that occur in menopause and andropause (male menopause).
Balancing hormones is equivalent to finding the fountain of youth. We are able to “turn back the hands of time”, thus making you feel more vibrant, look younger and to enjoy life as you did when you were younger.
Bio-identical hormones are exact replicas of the hormones that our bodies naturally produce; matching the body’s natural hormones molecule for molecule and thus produce no undesirable side effects. These hormones come in various forms, including, under the tongue tablets, creams, gels and under the skin pellets.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is based on the review of a comprehensive blood hormone test to determine which hormones are low and need restoring to an optimal level. Once the blood results are back, the patient and the doctor will have a conference and decide what is the best direction to proceed.
