Bioidentical Hormone Therapy in The Woodlands, TX
With bioidentical hormone therapy by Woodlands Wellness, the goal to help you achieve optimal health is “hormonal balance”. Both men and women experience a dramatic change in their hormones, making bioidentical hormone replacement therapy necessary. For women, they enter “peri-menopause” approximately 10-15 years prior to the onset of menopause and their hormones slowly decline over time.
You may need bioidentical hormone therapy from Woodlands Wellness if you suffer from:
- weight gain
- hot flashes
- night sweats
- loss of libido
- vaginal dryness
- brain fog
- fibrocystic breast disease
If you are still menstruating, symptoms may include, mood swings, headaches, fluid retention, PMS, irregular cycles, heavy or irregular periods and breast tenderness.
Women have three different hormones in their body, Progesterone, Testosterone and three types of Estrogen. All of these hormones are important to females well-being. The problem is finding out which of the hormones are creating your symptoms and having a customized hormone therapy plan for replenishing those decreasing hormones. This is where the bioidentical hormones can be corrected.
All of our hormones decline at different levels. Most women in this country get additional estrogen in their body from their diet. Chemicals are sprayed on our vegetables and the chemicals are absorbed into our body like estrogen. Our protein food sources often have been given steroids and this also is absorbed into our body like estrogen. Add in the chemicals that are absorbed by beverages we drink out of plastic bottles and you body is absorbing more estrogen. It is this reason, that most women today are estrogen dominant. They have very low levels of progesterone and testosterone with high levels of estrogen.
Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy process
We use a comprehensive blood test to determine which hormones your body is deficient in and which ones you have in excess. We then customize a program just for you.
We use only bio-identical hormones which are 98% identical in structure to the hormones that you body produces. These bioidentical hormones are made from wild yam and cannot be patented. In contrast, hormone replacement therapies are a synthetic replica of your body hormones and are only 6% identical in structure. Which one would you rather have, a natural bio-identical hormone cream or a synthetic counterfeit cream? Of course, the pharmaceutical companies would prefer that you choose the synthetic type because they can patent the formula and charge more money. The natural bio-identical hormone alternatives occur in nature and cannot be patented.
