Hormone replacement is a way to increase necessary and vital hormones to the body that begin to dwindle as we age. The ability of the human body to produce hormones often declines and/or becomes imbalanced as we get older, leading to feelings of fatigue, irritability, weight gain and many other side effects. There are also some non-aging related causes of hormone imbalance such as: surgical procedures, prolonged periods of stress, and even some medications.

Hormone regulation is critical to our everyday wellness and overall health. Each hormone has a multitude of functions in the body. Hormones can affect:
Bio-Identical Natural Hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones that are made by the human body. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) involves the use of bio-identical plant derived hormones. These hormones that occur naturally in the body cannot be patented, and manufacturers lack the financial incentive to commercially market these substances. Because plant derived Bio Identical Natural Hormones are biologically identical to the hormones that our body produced when it was younger, they allow your body to regain its natural balance again.
The value of Hormone Replacement Therapy is that it can be adapted to fit your own individual hormone levels and your specific needs. Not everyone ages the same or lives with the same life situations and stressors, your needs are your own. We make sure to understand exactly what you need for your unique set of circumstances and adapt your therapy to YOU!
