Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Everyone has hormones in their body, and these hormones control a wide variety of functions, such as:

  • Appetite
  • Mood
  • The immune system
  • Metabolism

If your hormones become imbalanced, you may need treatment, such as hormone replacement therapy, to help balance them out again. The team at House Of Healing uses bioidentical hormone therapy to balance your hormone levels and relieve your symptoms.

Unlike other types of hormone replacement therapies, bioidentical hormone therapies use hormones identical to those your body produces naturally. Plus, the treatment is customizable based on the hormone levels found in your saliva or blood. 

What does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treat?

Bioidentical hormone therapy is primarily used to treat menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms in women. However, it can also relieve symptoms from many diseases and illnesses that affect all genders, including:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thyroid disorders

Bioidentical hormone therapy may also treat side effects that stem from cancer treatments. 

What are the symptoms of a hormone imbalance?

Both men and women can experience hormone imbalances. Symptoms include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Weight gain or unexplained, rapid weight loss
  • Dry skin
  • Thinning hair
  • Stiff, achy joints
  • Depression
  • Rounded, puffy face
  • Increased anxiety or irritability

Women may also experience unique symptoms related to hormone imbalance. For example, if menopause is triggering your hormone imbalance, you may experience fewer periods and vaginal dryness, among other symptoms. 

How does bioidentical hormone therapy work?

There are multiple ways physicians can administer bioidentical hormone therapy, including pills and injections. The team at House Of Healing uses safe and modern methods to perform bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. This includes pellet therapy, which involves your provider inserting a pellet, usually in the upper buttock, that administers hormones throughout the day. This works to balance your hormones continuously over time.

Other methods of hormone replacement therapy may cause you to experience ups and downs between treatments, but the pellet method provides continuous symptom relief.

Hormone imbalance can cause a variety of unwanted symptoms related to the aging process, but treatment can balance your hormone levels and provide lasting relief. Call House Of Healing to schedule an appointment today, or you can request an appointment using the online booking tool.
