Years ago, getting older meant saying goodbye to certain aspects of life. For many, that list included restful sleep, a healthy sex drive and a sense of well-being. As midlife hormone fluctuations become more pronounced, so do unpleasant symptoms that accompany menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, chronic fatigue, brain fog, decreased libido and unexplained weight gain. At Advanced Medicine & Aesthetics, we want you to know that you do not have to live this way. Help is available, and it’s easier than you think.
At Advanced Medicine & Aesthetics our group has great empathy and understanding for patients who have struggled with symptoms of hormone imbalance. We are highly trained in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
BHRT is one of the most widely studied methods of hormone replacement therapy available today.
Bioidentical hormones are plant-based, non-synthetic hormones that are identical in structure and function to the hormones your body is no longer producing and offer natural, balanced relief of symptoms.
Bioidentical hormones can be introduced to the body in several ways. Methods include creams, drops, injections, oral capsules, or pellet therapy.
Before undertaking BHRT, the Provider reviews all of your lab reports and all of your symptoms that you may be experiencing. Then, you will receive a complete physical exam and thorough review of your medical, personal, and famiy history. Additional tests may be requested — such as serum or saliva testing. After taking a comprehensive look at all of these things, the Provider will determine what type of therapy will most benefit you.
Our Providers use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy coupled with diet and exercise, to help patients achieve renewed energy and vitality. For your convenience, all blood work is drawn in-office, and most patients start to feel better after only three weeks of treatment.
Pellet therapy involves placing small pellets painlessly in the subcutaneous fat, to deliver the perfect amount of hormones slowly over time. Our group uses bio-identical hormone replacement therapy in the form of pellets for male and female hormone replacement therapy.
Testosterone Pellet therapy has been shown to have the most dramatic and profound change, and can be prescribed for both men and women. Energy and vitality are increased, and typically, sexual drive is increased as well. Advanced Medicine highly recommends pellet therapy for those who are low in Testosterone.
We also utilize hormone replacement therapy to treat thyroid and adrenal issues, as well as cortisol issues. These non-sex hormones can also have a great effect on your life. If they are out of balance, energy and mental acuity are compromised. Patients respond well once these hormones are at proper levels, and can’t believe how good they now feel!
