Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Learn more about Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Taylor Medical Group provides bio-identical hormone therapy for both women and men. Bio-identical hormones are compounded hormones which are identical to those made by the body. They achieve the best physiological effects because hormone receptors recognize them fully and bind completely to receptors. Synthetic hormones are structurally altered so that they can be patented and sold by pharmaceutical companies. As the result of these chemical alterations, synthetic hormones have some beneficial effects of bio-identical hormone but with necessary unwanted side effects.
Bio-identical hormones are most commonly prescribed to treat symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women and men, such as premature aging, hot flashes, night sweats, decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, anorgasmia, thinning hair, decreased muscle mass, memory problems, fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, and irritability. Hormones impact every aspect of our health and imbalances can cause a wide vary of symptoms that may be misdiagnosed as depression, bipolar disorder, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, ADHD, sleep and anxiety disorders and sexual dysfunction. Hormone imbalances can worsen medical conditions and decrease vitality, energy, metabolism and stamina.
Bio-identical hormones can provide the best results for patients with hormone problems without unwanted side effects. They may be customized for each patient since they are made by compounding pharmacists. Through salivary hormone testing, we can accurately measure hormones to identify hormone imbalances that are often missed by blood testing. Salivary testing allows our doctors to monitor hormone therapy and provide accurate hormone dosing which results in optimal outcomes. Bio-identical hormones that we prescribe include progesterone, estrogen, oxytocin, testosterone, thyroid and growth hormone and cortisol. They may be prescribed as a capsule, cream or pellet.
