Live the best life possible with bio-identical hormones!
It’s true! Women CAN feel healthy, vibrant, and sexy throughout their entire lives. Why suffer from the symptoms of PMS or menopause when bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can bring you back to the balance and well-being of healthy hormone levels?
Results May Vary: Causes for being overweight or obese vary from person to person. Whether genetic or environmental, it should be noted that food intake, rates of metabolism and levels of exercise and physical exertion vary from person to person. This means weight loss results will also vary from person to person.
What is BHRT?
BHRT (or bio-identical hormone replacement therapy) is the most convenient and effective method of hormone replacement available. It has been thoroughly documented and researched in medical journals since 1939 and involves thesimple and painless insertion of a bio-identical hormone pellet under the skin. Once the pellet is inserted, a steady, low dose of natural hormone flows directly into the bloodstream when the body needs it. This gives a woman’s body the ability to control the release of the hormone just as it did when her ovaries were working normally. Bio-identical hormone pellets can last anywhere from three to six months or longer.
What is Bio-identical pellets made from?
Bio-identical pellets are compounded according to the highest industry standards, using the best quality botanical ingredients available. Derived from a natural plant source of soy and other plant-based ingredients, they are specifically formulated to replicate human hormones. No horse urine. No fillers . Just pure, natural, biologically equivalent hormones—plain and simple.
How do I receive my treatment?
Each tiny hormone pellet is slipped painlessly under the skin, typically in the hip. A mild, local anesthetic is used and the procedure takes less than five minutes. Repeat treatments involve a brief visit to your certified physician a few times per year.
As a woman, why do I need testosterone?
Testosterone gives a woman her mental clarity, libido, muscle tone and mass. Without it, women often complain of mental confusion, weight gain, and poor muscle growth even with regular exercise.
What can BHRT do for me?
BHRT has helped thousands of women achieve the natural, healthy balance of hormones their bodies need to maintain optimum well-being. Our patients report that they fee lfantastic again! Some of the benefits include:
- Enhancement of libido and/or increased sexual desire
- An increase in lean body mass and a decrease in body fat
- Greater capacity for getting in shape
- Reduced fatigue and increased energy levels
- Consistency in moods—reduction in feelings of anger, nervousness and irritability
- Relief from anxiety and depress
- Increased energy, focus, mental clarity, and concentration

Are there any side effects or complications?
Side effects are infrequent. A woman may experience transient breast tenderness lasting 7-10 days with the first insertion, but rarely with repeat treatments. Acne and hair loss are rare occurrences from testosterone therapy. The growth of facial hair is also rare and occurs no more frequently than what happens in post menopausal women on no hormones.
