Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the use of supplemental doses of hormones that have a chemical structure identical to the hormones that the human body naturally produces.
Fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, and low libido are just a few examples of the common symptoms of hormonal imbalances that should not be brushed off as a simple way of life. We offer a customized bio-identical therapy to treat your unique hormonal needs and to optimize your health.
Vitalogy Wellness Center is now offering both transdermal creams and patches as well as pellet insertion.
Transdermal Creams and Patches
Transdermal creams and patches are used to balance the body’s naturally occurring hormones. When estrogen is taken in pill form, it’s first processed through the liver. This stimulates proteins associated with heart disease and stroke, such as C-reactive protein, activated protein C, and clotting factors. Depending on your specific needs, a combination of progesterone, estrogen and testosterone are used.
Pellets are inserted in the hip and deliver consistent, healthy levels of hormones for 3-5 months in women and 4-6 months in men. They avoid the fluctuations, or ups and downs, of hormone levels seen with every other method of delivery.
