It is using hormones that are identical to the hormones naturally made by your body. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has transformed the healthcare of men and women as they enter the second half of their lives. It provides an alternative to hormones that are synthetic, like injectable testosterone, or concentrated from horse urine (Premarin). Patients taking BHRT usually prepared by compounding pharmacists can be given in dosages tailored to their individual needs; instead of the narrow choices available with mass-produced hormone therapies (one size fits all). Most patients experience fewer side effects from BHRT than synthetic hormones.The interest in a more natural approach to hormone therapy has focused attention on bio-identical hormones — hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones men and women make in their bodies. They are not found in this form in nature but are derived and made from plant compounds extracted from yams and soy. Bio-identical hormone therapy is often called “natural hormone therapy” because bio-identical hormones act just like the hormones produced by your body.On a lab test, your total estradiol or testosterone not only measures the bio-identical estrogen or testosterone you’ve taken but also the amount of those hormones your body makes. On the other hand, Premarin, the old standby estrogen used for decades is metabolized into various forms of estrogen that are dangerous and are not measured by standard laboratory tests. Proponents of bio-identical hormones say that one important advantage of bio-identical therapy is that hormone levels can be monitored more precisely and treatment individualized accordingly.WHO NEEDS BHRT?Almost all of us over the age of 40 (and in many cases over 30) begin to experience hormone imbalance. Over our lifetime, we are exposed to environmental and dietary toxins, which contribute to the natural decline of hormones as we age. In order to balance your hormones for optimal health and wellness, it is critical to be evaluated by a highly trained healthcare provider – including comprehensive lab testing and in depth initial questionnaires – prior to creating a personalized treatment plan.IS BHRT RIGHT FOR YOU?any factors can contribute to conditions and diseases that can occur at any stage in life, resulting from an imbalance of hormones:Adrenal fatigueThyroid diseaseMetabolic SyndromeSexual dysfunctionSYMPTOMS PROFILEWomenAs a result of hormone imbalance, you may be experiencing one or a combination of what have become known as the classic symptoms of aging:FatigueAnxietyWeight GainLow Sex DriveNight SweatsLoss of EnergyDepressionMental FogInsomniaLack of MotivationHeadachesHot FlashesMenMen may experience these symptoms of low testosterone levels:Loss of EnergyLow Sex DriveWeight GainIrritable, MoodyLoss of FocusInsomniaDecreased Sense of Well-beingDecrease in lean muscle massIncrease body fatMiddle-aged Spread or Beer BellyIncreased FatigueDecreased Erectile FunctionLoss of Muscle Mass and StrengthIncreased Belly FatDepression and AnxietyLoss of ConfidenceDecreased enduranceMEDICAL EXAMA comprehensive review of symptoms, medical, family and personal historyTesting – saliva, urine and/or blood laboratory analysisNatural hormone balancingOngoing evaluationsQuality compounded pharmacyHighest quality supplementsFitness programsNutrition planningStress reduction plansLAB TESTING INFORMATIONThe healthcare provider at Advanced Practice Clinic will determine exactly which lab tests you need based on your symptoms and health goals. No two people are exactly the same. The hormone tests used by Advanced Practice Clinic include the saliva hormone test, and blood/serum hormone tests.Saliva Hormone TestsOne of the simplest methods of measuring hormone levels is the saliva hormone test. Saliva tests are used to detect the levels of sex-hormones produced by the body. The saliva samples should be collected in the morning, afternoon, evening and before bedtime to accurately measure your cortisol levels, which fluctuate throughout the day. Measuring cortisol levels provides an accurate assessment of symptoms of adrenal fatigue.Serum Hormone TestsSome hormones circulating in the bloodstream, such as the thyroid hormones and insulin, do not enter the saliva because of their large size; this means that saliva hormone tests cannot measure these hormones.These additional hormone tests will not only help your healthcare provider get a clear picture of your hormone levels, but also allows your provider to tailor a personalized wellness program that addresses your individual needs.Simple Tests for an Extraordinary SolutionThe simple saliva tests and blood spot tests described above allow Advanced Practice providers to get an accurate picture of what is going on inside the body. This information makes all the difference in designing your personalized treatment plan. These tests are the first step towards a healthier, happier you.MEDICAL EXAM AND LAB PRICINGSINCE EACH PERSON IS SPECIFIC NO TWO PEOPLE WILL HAVE THE EXACT SAME TREATMENT PLAN OR COSTS.

offers natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) utilizing pellet therapy. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a way to bio-identically replace the hormones men and women lose over the course of their lives. Balancing hormones in this natural way helps patients learn more about this hormone replacement therapy utilizing proven method of pellet therapy.WHY BIO-IDENTICAL PELLET THERAPY?Because it’s easy! As a patient, you receive two to four pellet insertions per year. This way you don’t have to think about it, and the hormone is available when your body needs it.WHAT IS BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT PELLET THERAPY?Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can come in oral, topical and pellet forms. BHRT has many advantages over other hormone therapies – most notably, the consistent administration of the hormone prevents the rollercoaster-like effects patients often experience with creams and pills.HOW LONG DOES A BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT PELLET TAKE TO WORK?As each patient’s symptoms are unique, so is each patient’s path to hormone optimization. Most patients report some symptom resolution in as little as two to four weeks, but full optimization may take up to six months. Your journey will be customized to fit your specific needs. It takes more than one to two weeks for your hormones to get out of balance, so expect it to take time to resolve.
