The Ultimate Hormone Tune-up

Are you tired, irritable, depressed, not sleeping well, having hot flashes, night sweats, or a decreased sex drive? If you answered yes to any of those, you may be suffering from a hormonal imbalance, which can affect men and women of all ages, not just those in andropause and menopause.

By now you’ve probably heard of Natural Bio-Identical Hormones, but perhaps don’t know what that means. Plain and simple, these are hormones that are biologically identical to those that your body naturally produces. Drs. Burns and Dagstani are experts in hormone replacement therapy and specialize in natural bio-identical hormones.

One preferred method for administering these hormones is in the form of small pellets, the size of rice grains, placed painlessly under the skin. This method allows for a safe transdermal (through the skin) delivery, which has been repeatedly shown in clinical studies to have fewer adverse side effects compared to oral administration, and lasts for 3-5 months. 

Our experience with hormone pellet therapy has demonstrated faster, better, and more complete relief of symptoms and, have a very high patient satisfaction rating.

We also have other effective delivery options if you and your doctor determine pellets are not right for you such as transdermal creams (applied to the skin), oral lozenges (hormones are absorbed through the mucosal lining of the mouth) and, injectable (testosterone).

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

Ever since the Women’s Health Initiative studies came to a screeching halt in 2002, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has garnered a pretty bad rep.

The number of women using HRT declined significantly after it was discovered that the combination of hormones that most women were taking (namely progestin and estrogen) increased the likelihood of heart disease, breast cancer, blood clots and stroke.

The main problem with these studies is that they were only focusing on women who used synthetic hormones, such as Premarin, Provera and Prempro.

Nearly a decade later, hormone therapy has become more popular among menopausal women, thanks to natural HRT alternatives, like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to the hormones that the body produces naturally. Bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally occurring, plant-based sources, such as soy and yams. All plant-derived hormone preparations require a chemical process to synthesize the final product, which can then be put into a cream, a spray, a patch or a pill.

Bioidentical vs. Synthetic Hormones

Pharmaceutical companies cannot patent a naturally-occurring substance, therefore, synthetic hormones used in traditional hormone replacement therapy are purposely made to be slightly different than the body’s own hormones.  As a result, undesirable side effects can occur. 

The benefits of bioidentical hormones over synthetic hormones include:

•Fewer side effects.  Since there are no added ingredients, and because the body can metabolize the bioidentical hormones in the same way it metabolizes the body’s own hormones, unpleasant side effects are minimized.

•Individualized Approach.  Bioidentical hormones can be compounded according to each person’s hormone profile, as determined by their physician, so that the lowest effective dose can be utilized.
