Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Benefits – Symptoms of aging are both internal and external. Menopause and Andropause (male hormonal changes with age) are caused by hormone imbalances. As we age, our bodies produce lower levels of hormones that are vital to our health and well-being. By bringing hormones back to the levels they existed in the body during the 30’s, you can begin to feel and look your absolute best. Through hormone balancing, you can experience improved energy and greater enjoyment of life. Not everyone is a candidate for this therapy. Only a thorough medical evaluation can determine if it is right for you.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

How are bioidentical hormones administered?
First, your physician will conduct either blood or saliva tests to determine if you have hormone deficiencies. Following hormone testing and a full medical evaluation, the doctor will prescribe for you only those hormones in which you are deficient, at precise levels for your body. Hormones are administered in the form of creams, pills, or orally. Over time your hormone levels will continue to be monitored and adjustments made as necessary. The key to successful results is an individualized approach created by a physician specially trained in bioidentical hormone therapy.
