Bioidentical Hormones

 

What are hormones?

Hormones are signaling molecules produced by your endocrine glands and transported in your blood to various organs. These hormones regulate physiology and behavior. 

Some of your hormones include:

Estrogen

Estrogen is a female sex hormone. It supports the normal function of many bodily systems, including the brain, blood vessels, bones, muscles, breasts, and uterus. 

Progesterone

Progesterone is also a female sex hormone. It balances estrogen levels and supports sleep, decreases swelling, improves cholesterol, and reduces inflammation. 

Thyroid

The thyroid hormones manage metabolism, energy, memory, and body temperature.

Cortisol

Cortisol is a stress hormone that increases blood sugar for energy and motivation. 

Testosterone

Testosterone is a male sex hormone, but women also produce it. It affects libido, mood, sense of well-being, and muscle mass. It’s also a natural antidepressant. 

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)

DHEA is a naturally occurring steroid hormone and assists in the production of your sex hormones. 

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that have the same structure and function as the natural hormones produced by your body. Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. offers bioidentical hormones for hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

By comparison, non-identical hormones have a similar structure, but they’re not identical to your natural hormones. These types of hormone replacement options are much stronger and not properly metabolized by the body. 

Bioidentical HRT also offers many health benefits and may protect your heart, vascular system, prostate, and bones. 

Am I a good candidate for bioidentical hormones?

How are bioidentical hormones given?

Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. has certified BioTE® providers and HRT specialists. They use BioTE pellets to restore hormone balance. The BioTE pellet is a convenient hormone delivery system.

No larger than a grain of rice, your provider at Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. inserts your custom-created pellet under the skin above your buttocks. The pellet releases a consistent dose of hormones for three to six months.

Restoring Health Medical Institute, Inc. schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor your symptoms and hormone levels and replaces your pellet as needed.
