Let’s talk about hormones


What are bioidentical hormones?
They are a natural supplement made from yams. They are the closest thing to the human hormone at the cellular level.
Our whole body is run on hormones and as we age there is a fluctuation in these hormones. Most noticed by women, but also affects men.
Do you find yourself having mood swings, agitation, irritability and sadness for no apparent reason?
I want you to know that you aren’t going crazy, it could just be a fluctuation in your hormones.
Are you in menopause?
Do you suffer from hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, low libido or fatigue? These can easily be treated with bioidentical hormone replacement.
Men, did you know that testosterone levels start dropping as early as age 30?
Have you gained weight? Are you not getting the gains in the gym that you once did? Do you suffer from fatigue? These could all be because of low testosterone.
Who qualifies for hormone replacement?
Men age 30-80. 
Women age 25-80.
Does everyone qualify for hormone replacement?
Not necessarily. If you have had a history of any reproductive cancer, blood clots, strokes or ministrokes you aren’t a candidate for hormone replacement. 
What about the cancer risk that is associated with hormone replacement?
The increased risk for cancer is minimal, and varies by the individual. Schedule a consult to discuss your risk and benefits.

Still have questions?

If you would like to see if you could be a candidate for hormone replacement: stop by the office to fill out a questionnaire and have your hormone levels are measured via a blood test. While you’re there, you will be scheduled for a virtual consultation.

Hope to see you soon,
