Treatment Options

Bioidentical hormones are compounds that are created from naturally occurring substance that are purified, combined and tested within a laboratory to mimic those produced naturally in our bodies. Bioidentical hormones are used to help treat hormonal imbalances that occur in both women and men. Commonly used hormones are Thyroid, Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone & others. 

The Bioidentical hormones used from compounding can be made into various forms: Tablets, Capsules, Suppositories, Creams, Lozenges, Troches & Gels. They are derived from plant sources such as yams or soy. They are processed so that the result is no different than human hormones. They do not have to be converted by the body into the actual hormone. 

Bioidentical hormones come in a variety of strengths and can be formulated into creams, gels, ointments, patches, pills, suppositories and pellets that are individualized for each patient’s needs. 

Compared to traditional synthetic hormones, they are a safer and more effective form of treatment for hormonal balance with fewer side effects. Side effects are one of the most common reasons patients discontinue taking hormone therapy.
