As you age, your hormones decline. And as your hormones decline you decline in every way.

About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a personalized medical treatment designed to restore hormone imbalances in both men and women. As we age, our hormone levels naturally decline, leading to symptoms that can impact our quality of life. Bioidentical hormones are plant-derived and are identical in molecular structure to what is naturally produced in the human body. We use natural, bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic hormones to ensure the health and safety of our patients. BHRT is a safe and effective treatment that uses compounded hormones to meet the individual needs of each patient.

Customized Treatment Plans:

At Performance Medicine, our experienced healthcare professionals conduct comprehensive assessments and laboratory tests to determine your unique hormone levels and identify any imbalances or deficiencies. Our team creates tailored treatment plans to address your specific symptoms and health needs. Unlike conventional, synthetic hormone therapies, BHRT offers individualized dosages and delivery options, ensuring the best possible outcome for each patient. Some of the hormone delivery options include pellets (under the skin), troches or triturates (under the tongue), creams (applied topically to the skin), or injections (into the muscle).

Conditions Treated with BHRT:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is effective in treating a range of hormonal issues: 

  1. Low Testosterone (andropause) in men: low libido, fatigue, muscle loss, weight gain, mood changes, difficulty sleeping, daytime somnolence, loss of competitive drive, and more.
  2. Menopause and perimenopausal symptoms in women: hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain, loss of muscle tone, loss of libido, fatigue, skin changes, and more.
  3. Thyroid hormone imbalance, such as hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
  4. Cortisol imbalance from chronic stress or adrenal fatigue.

Benefits of BHRT:

  • Natural: Bioidentical hormones look like what the body naturally makes. BHRT is the safest and most natural form of hormone replacement therapy.
  • Individualized treatment: Using your lab results and symptoms, we design a treatment plan that is customized for your needs.
  • Feel your best: Relief of hormonal symptoms, restoring balance to your health, and improving quality of life. Hormones help balance energy levels, improve sleep, banish brain fog, stabilize mood, and many other health benefits.
  • Look your best: Balancing hormones helps you maintain ideal body composition, as well as providing nourishment to the skin and collagen, helping to slow the visible signs of aging (*link to aesthetics*).
  • Prevention: BHRT reduces the risk of many diseases such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases such as coronary artery disease, heart attack and stroke, dementia, and other age-related diseases. BHRT helps maintain cellular health and function.

Safety & Monitoring

Our medical team works closely with each patient to ensure the patient’s wellbeing and safety throughout the hormone treatment process. We regularly check hormone levels and maintain close follow-ups to keep you feeling your best and ensure optimal health.
