What is Hormone Optimization Therapy?

  • As we age, our bodies naturally start to reduce the amount of hormones like testosterone and estrogen they produce.
  • Hormones such as these are incredibly important to how many areas of your body function – such as your brain, heart, bones, reproductive organs, and more.
  • When these hormones are out of balance, people can experience a number of different symptoms.
  • Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones and aiming to relieve these symptoms, using compounded hormones that are identical in structure to those your body naturally produces. That way, your body recognizes and uses these replacement hormones in exactly the same way it would hormones it produces naturally.

  1. First, you do a simple blood test
  2. Then, we review the lab results with you and develop your individualized treatment plan based on your body’s needs

Our hormones impact so much in our bodies. You may be struggling with persistent symptoms and not even know they might be related to a hormone balance!
