Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormones offer an alternative to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and is a way to relieve menopause symptoms, which are chemically identical to the hormones your body produces, because our body cannot distinguish between bioidentical hormones and the ones produced by your ovaries. As hormone levels in our bodies decrease as we age, hormone replacement therapy restores your hormones to more youthful levels resulting in more energy, a sharper memory, stronger bones, a healthier heart and an overall more youthful glow. The treatment comes in patch form, a cream form or pill form. Many patients chose bioidentical hormone treatment as a hormone replacement therapy and have experienced great results.
