Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy restores hormonal balance and supplements low levels of hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural sources (yam and soybeans) and are identical to the hormones your body makes. It’s critical for your body to deliver the right amount of hormones at the right time. Your body naturally orchestrates a delicate balance and release of hormones for optimal functioning. Many people find that insufficient hormone levels can negatively affect day-to-day life and lead to a host of symptoms, such as low libido and low energy. As you age, your body may no longer produce the proper levels of hormones needed, and bioidentical hormone therapy can be an effective solution.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been in use safely in the United States since 1938 and offers many benefits, including: Increased bone density, improved cardiovascular health, protection from Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis, protective qualities for breast, uterine, ovarian, and prostate cancer, and symptom relief. Unlike gels, creams, or injections, the pellets offer more consistent individualized hormone levels over longer periods of time and avoid the fluctuations sometimes seen with other methods of hormone delivery. Pellets deliver healthy levels of hormones for around 3-4 months in women and around 4-5 months in men. Bioidentical pellets are more natural and don’t increase the risk of blood clots like synthetic hormone replacement therapy. Studies show that bioidentical hormone pellets are superior for relief of menopausal symptoms, improved sleep quality, libido, and sexual performance, and improved bone density.
