Focusing on the areas overlooked by mainstream medicine we target the root cause of the problem, which is often related to hormonal imbalance. Our mission is to enhance quality of patient’s life. Using professional guidance and a personalized approach to patient care in replacing the hormones that are missing or reduced with their molecular duplicate (bio-identical), we bring our patient’s systems back into balance, helping them to maintain youthful fitness, energy, and well being. The safety and effectiveness of our therapy is based on the use of high quality Bio-Identical hormone pellets combined with accurate dosing and the proper pellet insertion technique.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a primary therapy of anti-aging medicine, which is the science and treatment of age-related conditions and their prevention for prolonging life with quality and function. While many things promise “anti-aging” effects, there is no real way to turn back the clock. We can however, increase the quality years of your genetic potential for longevity. By identifying and correcting hormonal imbalances and nutritional deficiencies we can restore a more youthful cellular function. Some of our hormonal, nutritional, and nutraceutical approaches have been shown in studies to improve and slow down cellular aging. By applying our integrative approaches we will optimize your health to help your body maintain its maximum function.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources and are designed to replicate the same chemical structure as hormones that are naturally produced. According to a patient’s hormone levels, a specialized compounding pharmacy can individually customize a bio-identical hormone regimen specifically designed for them.
As men and women approach a mid-life age and lifestyle, many of them often wonder whether or not hormone therapy is the right treatment option to go with. There have been many studies that show traditional hormone therapy as increasing the likelihood of various types of cancer and heart disease, but many people not are taking a natural approach to hormone balance with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. With B.H.R.T., patients are straying from any synthetic hormone therapies that can potentially induce threatening conditions.
This treatment method is exceptionally more appeal to the masses when dealing with symptoms associated with menopause and andropause because they are derived naturally and a patient’s body can metabolize them properly without any complications. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy also has many advantages, such as the fact that they are specifically tailored to match your individual hormonal needs. This greatly differs from any method of synthetic hormones therapy, which uses a universal one-for-all approach to alleviating symptoms.
Benefits Of Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Over the last 10 years, clinical research has shown that bio-identical hormones have distinct advantages and safety benefits over conventional non-identical oral hormones such as Provera and Premarin. The North American Menopause Society, the leading academic medical organization that focuses on HRT in women, has recommended bio-identical hormones for relief of symptoms and has endorsed them for their unique safety benefits and dosing customization.
There has been an overwhelmingly large body of substantial evidence that shows a growing support for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Patients have said that this is a safer method and is more effective than any synthetic hormone replacement regimen could ever be.
Although patients must remember that no drug or supplement is completely 100% safe, so there is always the chance for patients to experience some potential adverse reactions.
Bio-identical hormones are equally effective as traditional pill form non-identical hormones at treating the target conditions in both men and women, such as Low T, menopause, hot flashes, sexual dysfunction, osteoporosis (bone loss) and other conditions for which they prescribed. Bio-identical hormones such as testosterone, estradiol and progesterone, share the same exact chemical structure as your body’s own hormones, which adds to their safety profile. Some large studies have even suggested a reduced breast cancer risk with female HRT when compared to traditional hormone replacement.
Bio-identical Hormone Delivery
At Vitamore, bio-identical hormones are delivered via implantation under the skin or through a cream applied to the skin, as opposed to traditional pills. This avoids them from being broken down in the liver to toxic products that can turn on cancer genes. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) allows for very flexible and individualized dosing as multiple hormones can be combined for balanced replacement that addresses multiple symptoms as once. They are prescribed, like other medications, and can be custom compounded through specially trained pharmacists, to allow for unique administrations such as implantation.
