“Diet, lifestyle, aging, and menopause can contribute to hormonal imbalance. If you are experiencing symptoms such as hot flashes, insomnia or fatigue, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) may help to address these symptoms. A holistic approach that takes into account diet, lifestyle, sleep, and stress reduction is also necessary to address hormone imbalance.”– Dr. Adriana
When our bodies are not in proper balance, our overall health can suffer. At Crest, our hormone treatments are designed to meet your specific needs and help you restore balance.
What Is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone replacement therapy is designed to help restore natural hormonal balance. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the therapeutic use of hormones that are identical to the hormones made naturally by the body; they include testosterone, progesterone, estradiol (E2), estriol (E3), DHEA, cortisol, and/or thyroid hormones. These hormones can be used as part of our holistic approach to address symptoms such as those of perimenopause, menopause, andropause (male menopause), HPA axis imbalance, and thyroid dysfunction.
What Does This Treatment Address?
At Crest, our BHRT services align perfectly with our comprehensive healthcare model. These supplements are naturally derived and can help address a wide range of concerns. As part of our functional medicine approach, we rely on multi-faceted, holistic treatments to not only ease your symptoms but to address their causes as well. This therapy approach can reduce the frequency of hot flashes, help you to sleep better, improve your mood, and restore your energy.
The expectation of this therapy is improvement in symptoms related to hormone deficiency and possible decreased health risks. Possible benefits include: prevention, reduction or control of physical diseases and dysfunction associated with declining hormone levels; relief of hot flashes and night sweats; alleviate vaginal dryness; prevention of fractures caused by osteoporosis; improvement of sleep.
What Does Hormone Replacement Therapy Involve?
Hormone replacement therapy commonly involves the administration of supplements either orally or transdermally (through the skin) in the form of patches or a gel. Your treatment method will depend on your specific needs.
What Can I Expect?
Hormone replacement therapy treatments can help to provide gradual improvement in mood, energy levels, and regulation of menopause symptoms. Moreover, these supplements have been shown to provide additional benefits such as reduced risk of osteoporosis. This therapy modality as part of a holistic approach may help you to enjoy better sleep, sexual function, and overall quality of life. It is important to understand that hormone therapy alone is not expected to optimize health or maintain youth.
