Our hormone therapy solutions include:
Bioidentical Hormone Pellets
Testosterone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses pellet-based methods of balancing your hormones. The pellets have hormones that replicate the characteristics of the ones produced by your body. The pellets do not have synthetic hormones and are among the most natural treatments to balance your hormones.
Testosterone therapy can result in several life-enhancing benefits, which include improved energy and strength, increased libido, improved mental focus, and overall, restored testosterone levels. You can also enjoy better rest and experience less anxiety, depression, and other mental stress factors. You can regain the energy and well-being to enjoy life.

You have undoubtedly heard a lot about bioidentical hormones. Hormones are natural chemicals that regulate many of the body’s processes and are produced by the endocrine glands.
But conventional synthetic hormone therapy has earned a bad rap because of side effects that can include headaches, nausea, fatigue, digestive upset, muscle and bone loss, thinning hair, and memory problems. More seriously, blood clots may develop, strokes can be triggered by the treatment, and even cancer risk is higher.
That may sound like not much better than tolerating the effects of menopause, when estrogen and testosterone decrease and get out of balance, commonly resulting in hot flashes and flushes, a lower sex drive, a severe lack of energy, weight gain, moodiness, anxiousness, irritability, and depression.
In addition to aging, hormonal imbalance can be caused by poor diet, certain medications, inadequate sleep, and stress.
Fortunately, bioidentical hormones are an alternative to synthetics in restoring your optimum balance. Unlike these foreign chemicals that your body often reacts to negatively, bioidenticals, as the name implies, are designed to mimic your own natural hormones. The prescription your doctor writes is so unique that a personalized formula has to be created by a specialist at a compounding pharmacy. You cannot buy a mass-marketed bioidentical hormone product off the shelf. No patent is possible because each prescription is for your body only.
Men also need bioidentical hormone therapy. Their hormonal system also goes out of balance as they age, resulting in similar symptoms as women, plus lower sperm count and erectile dysfunction. They are especially prone to loss of muscle, an increase in body fat, decreased bone density, elevated blood sugar, and a significantly higher risk of prostate cancer.
On the positive side, studies have shown that using bioidentical hormones to get anyone’s hormonal system back in balance lowers the risks for cardiovascular disease, diabetes type 2, osteoporosis, and even Alzheimer’s disease.
Even better is that restored hormonal balance in men and women can renew your life. You will feel a surge in your sex drive, experience a new level of personal health and energy, and be able to maintain a positive mood in even adverse circumstances. Let us help you turn back the clock.
