Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormones are crucial to your body’s wellbeing controlling most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body, coordinating everything from digestion and growth, to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. So, when your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being. Unfortunately, as we age, hormone levels decrease, affecting multiple aspects of your health and wellbeing.

Some of the health problems that low hormone levels are known to cause include:

  • Decreased bone density leading to osteopenia and osteoporosis
  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • Onset of diabetes and its complications
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Increased fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Greater irritability and mood swings
  • Thyroid problems
  • Decreased mental focus
  • Depression or depressive episodes and anxiety
  • Lowered sexual drive
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Increased inflammation
  • Wrinkled and thinning skin
  • Decreased skin volume, collagen, and elastin

The Key to Anti-aging

Replacing the hormones that are at suboptimal levels as we age is the key to anti-aging while controlling and reversing the problems mentioned above. When hormones drop or become unbalanced, people turn to hormone replacement therapies to ease symptoms. Unfortunately, not all hormone therapies are equal. Some hormones are made by pharmaceutical companies and others are compounded from plants by specialty pharmacies and made to order.

Joie De Vivre MedSpa of Chattanooga Medical Aesthetics & AntiAging recommends Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), which is chemically identical to the hormones produced the human body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) uses these hormones to help address symptoms related to hormonal imbalance. BHRT most often seeks to increase or balance the hormones estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and adrenal hormones. The length of treatment depends on your individual needs and how you are feeling – some people may require hormone therapy indefinitely while others many only need hormones until their own body can restore its natural hormone balance.

What Causes Hormone Imbalances?

Hormone imbalance can occur due to natural changes, including menopause in women and a drop in testosterone in men (andropause). In addition, certain diseases, medications, environmental and dietary toxins can also accelerate or cause hormone imbalance. The good news, for both men and women, is that hormonal balance can be achieved, as long as you are evaluated and treated by a highly trained health provider. Located in Chattanooga, TN, our hormone expert has over 25 years of experience creating personalized treatment plans for the optimization of hormones and overall health.

Why Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

BHRT pellets are our most popular hormone replacement therapy. These hormones are delivered in the form of tiny pellets, implanted subcutaneously (below the skin). No need for injections, creams or pills because the pellets constantly release plant-based hormones, boosting and matching the hormones your body naturally produces. “Bio-identical” means that these hormones address the deficiency using the same hormones your body would create when fully optimized. After a comprehensive history and physical exam, including comprehensive blood test, your baseline is established. Calculating the exact dose your body needs to achieve balance is essential, as well as choosing the right pharmacy to compound the hormones needed- based on exacting guidelines approved by the FDA, one of our preferred compounding pharmacists will create your pellets. Once implanted, your pellets will begin to release the needed hormones into your bloodstream in the most natural way – over time, and slowly.
