Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

It's all about balance...

Hormone balance is an important component of overall wellness and anti-aging. Hormone levels decline over time and can increase your susceptibility to certain disease states. Balanced hormones within healthy ranges have been found to help maintain bone strength, prevent osteoporosis, help maintain mental sharpness, aid in prevention of Alzheimer's disease, help maintain a more youthful appearance, restore more restful sleep, aid in vaginal dryness and erectile dysfunction, restore libido, help maintain muscle mass with aging, alleviate fatigue, anxiety, and depression, improve insulin sensitivity therefore diabetes, help with weight loss, prevention of cardiovascular disease,  and improve blood pressure among many other benefits.


These days our long hours, stressful lifestyles, and poor diets significantly contribute to hormone imbalances. Other factors such as head injuries and diet can also contribute to hormone imbalances, even in those who are young and should otherwise have optimal levels.


There are five critical systems that you need to focus on in order to ensure optimal hormone production and balance, and this is true whether you’re male or female and regardless of what the hormone is that we’re talking about. The systems are blood sugar, adrenals or hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis or HPA axis is two, number three is the gut, number four is detoxification/liver and gallbladder function, and number five is essential fatty acid balance.


If you feel that you could benefit from hormone balancing or  bioidentical hormone replacement therapy done responsibly or just suspect that you have an imbalance, we would be happy to assist you!
