Bioidentical Hormones Q & A

Vital Wellness & Weight Loss

What are hormones?

Hormones are chemical messengers that your endocrine system continuously secretes into your blood. They communicate with your body’s organs and systems and regulate most of your bodily functions. Hormones play a crucial role in processes like sexual function, metabolism, and mood.

Some of the primary hormone-producing glands in your body include:

  • Thyroid
  • Pituitary
  • Adrenal
  • Ovaries
  • Testes

Men and women both have hormones, and those hormones can change and fluctuate throughout your life.


What are the symptoms of hormone imbalance?

Since proper hormone function is crucial for virtually every bodily process, an imbalance can lead to one or more of the following exasperating symptoms: 

  • Mood swings
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Hair loss
  • Weight gain
  • Infertility
  • Dry skin
  • Sweating

If you’re suffering from hormone-related conditions or transitioning into menopause, Dr. Eller and Dr. Cavenee provide individualized care to help you regain your balance so you can feel healthy again.


What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormones are specially made from organic sources to match your natural hormones perfectly. The ingredients that make up bioidentical hormones are found mainly in plants, such as soybeans and yams, and closely mimic your body’s progesterone and estrogen.

As part of the aging process, it’s common for your hormones to decline and become imbalanced. However, hormonal fluctuations can impact your every activity and overall well-being. Your provider at Vital Wellness & Weight Loss replaces your lost hormones so that you can maintain optimal health.


Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy only for women?

No, men benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy too. Men experience significant dips in testosterone levels as they age. 

The loss of hormones in men is called andropause, but it’s colloquially referred to as male menopause. The symptoms of male menopause are similar to those in women, and include:

  • Reduced sex drive
  • Thinning hair
  • Night sweats
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain
  • Urinary problems
  • Muscle loss
  • Memory loss

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a natural treatment for andropause as well as menopause and helps men and women regain their health and sense of self. 

With personalized therapy for your unique hormone needs, your provider at Vital Wellness & Weight Loss makes sure you consistently have the right levels of testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, and adrenal cortisol.

Don’t let hormone imbalance interfere with your day-to-day activities. Dr. Eller and Dr. Cavenee can evaluate your health history and current condition and develop a custom hormone replacement program to restore your health. Call or use online booking to schedule an appointment today.
