What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the use of supplemental doses of hormones to correct the imbalances within your body. BHRT is utilized to treat the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and postmenopause.
How Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Different From the Hormones I’m Currently Taking?
Traditional hormones currently being prescribed are synthetic which can cause the body to react with various side effects. Bioidentical Hormones have a chemical structure identical to the hormones that the human body naturally produces. Hence the name “Bioidentical.”
How Does the Process Work?
After your initial consultation, medical history and physical with Dr. Allongo and the staff of Elite Contour Med Spa will determine if you are in hormonal decline. If so, he will prescribe a unique cocktail of hormones tailored to your individual needs. You will return every 3-6 months for a follow-up appointment to review your progress and make any needed adjustments.
What Else Can We Do?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in conjunction with proper fitness and nutrition can be an effective medical approach to help put an end to the suffering caused by stress induced adrenal fatigue, signs of early menopause, menopause, perimenopause and andropause. Dr. Allongo will determine the correct course of action for your individual needs.
