As we age, hormone levels begin to decline and the body may no longer function at an optimal level. Using bioidentical hormones, our practitioners develop an individualized care plan to balance and replace those declining hormones. A holistic approach to optimizing the entire male or female endocrine system is essential to good health and chronic disease prevention.
What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidendical hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones that are naturally produced by the body. The body knows how to use those hormones, metabolize them, and eliminate them. In general, bioidentical hormones are much safer for the long term health of patients.
Why are optimal hormone levels important?
Hormones are chemical messengers that travel throughout the body and signal complex processes such as growth, tissue repair, metabolism, and fertility. Hormones play a role in the immune system, cognition, behavior, and maintenance of the musculoskeletal system. If hormones become deficient or sub-optimal, symptoms associated with any of these body systems may arise.
What are the symptoms of hormone imbalances?
Men and women can experience symptoms related to a hormone imbalance. These include:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Reduced libido
- Vaginal dryness or trouble with erections
- Trouble concentrating or poor memory
Overwhelming, frequent fatigue, as well as muscle loss, fat gain, and a feeling that something just isn’t “right” can indicate a problem with your hormones.
How are hormone levels tested?
Hormones can be tested with blood, saliva, or urine. Depending on which hormone levels are being tested for, the type of specimen may vary. Most insurance companies will cover hormone screening for men and women. Your provider will select the best testing method depending on individual needs.
I’ve had acne for a long time and have tried facials, creams and peels with little success. Forever Clear BBL has not only managed to get my acne under control, but my skin has stayed clear
My self-confidence was really low (because of my acne). I tried everything! Nothing worked. I am so glad I got the Forever Clear BBL treatment: it made my skin look perfect and I feel fantastic! I would recommend it to my friends, because it works!
