What Is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a therapeutic treatment option to restore balance to shifting hormone levels. As men and women age, hormone levels change, particularly during andropause and menopause.
Shifting and declining hormone levels can negatively impact may areas of health. We often underestimate the impact hormones may have on our bodily systems, but bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help promote better overall health while addressing specific hormonal concerns.
What Hormones Are Treated?
Many people experience changes to their hormone levels, and each person experiences these changes differently. We provide treatment for hormones like:
- Estrogen – primary female sex hormone
- Progesterone – female sex hormone related to the menstrual cycle and reproduction
- Testosterone – primary male sex hormone
- Thyroid – hormones related to development, growth, and metabolism
A consultation with us will help provide a better understanding of your experiences and how to treat them.
What Does the Treatment Process Involve?
The bio-identical hormone replacement therapy process will vary for each person and their specific experiences. A treatment plan may involve:
The hormones used in treatment mimic those that naturally within your body. This helps promote their optimal functioning when restoring balance to your hormone levels.
Depending on your unique hormone therapy plan, your treatments may require a mix of treatments in our Texas office or on your own time. However, our team will provide you with all of the essential information you need to gain the best benefits from treatment.
Results achieved with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy will vary for each person. However, it is important to remember it may take some time to enjoy the results from treatment. It is important to give your body some time to absorb the hormones and experienced more balanced levels.
