Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are made from plant estrogens. These hormones are molecularly identical to the ones your body makes naturally, and they connect with the hormone receptors in your body to keep it functioning like a finely tuned watch.

The providers at Concierge IV Nutrition use bioidentical hormones rather than synthetic hormones because they’re thought by the medical community to be safer and more effective.

Synthetic hormones can act as a cancer-causing agent and may potentially increase your risk for developing the disease.

Why would I need bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy may be an effective treatment option for symptoms that result when you have a hormone imbalance. This imbalance can develop due to the natural aging process in both men and women.

Women may benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy as they transition into perimenopause and then menopause, the time when your period stops for good. Common menopausal symptoms include:

  • Bloating
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sleep disruption
  • Thinning hair
  • Decreased sex drive

Maintaining hormonal balance is also important for protecting the health of your skin and bones, as estrogen plays a role in soft, youthful skin and strong bones.

In men, bioidentical hormone therapy may be effective in relieving the symptoms of andropause that result from low testosterone. Common symptoms of andropause include low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle mass, and mood swings.

Even an imbalance in just one hormone can cause cascading events that alter the balance of your other hormones. 

The naturopathic physicians at Concierge IV Nutrition offer comprehensive hormone panels for both men and women to assess their overall state of hormone balance and identify deficiencies that can negatively impact their health.

Is bioidentical hormone therapy safe?

The naturopathic physicians at Concierge IV Nutrition administer bioidentical hormone injections in a safe and clean environment. Respected, licensed doctors supervise each therapy to ensure you receive the proper dosage while minimizing your risk for side effects.

When administered in a responsible, medically supervised manner, bioidentical hormone therapy is both safe and effective. The providers continue to monitor your progress throughout your therapy to identify and treat common side effects like breast tenderness, headaches, weight gain and other minor symptoms.

If you need help managing persistent symptoms of menopause or andropause, contact Concierge IV Nutrition to discuss your candidacy for bioidentical hormone therapy. You can call the Beverly Hills office or request an appointment through the online booking system.
