Our All-Natural Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy treatments for men and women can resolve numerous health issues related to hormone imbalance.
Why “Bioidentical” Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses all-natural hormones that are identical to the hormones made by your body to ease the degenerative side effects of medical issues, environmental factors, and aging. The goal is to re-establish the hormone levels that your system was designed to maintain.
Optimal Bio provides Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for men and women. With four locations in North Carolina, we provide hormonal solutions to some of the most common medical issues associated with aging and current environmental factors.
Low Hormone Levels
Hormone levels naturally decline as the human body ages, and may also be affected by factors such as your diet and the environment around you. Low hormone levels in your body can lead to:
- Ongoing Lack of Energy
- Susceptibility to Depression
- Increased Risk for Heart Attacks
- Blood Clots
Men and women with low hormone levels share a number of symptoms, but a few issues are gender-specific.
Side Effects of Low Levels
- Ongoing Lack of Energy
- Hot Flashes
- Difficulty Focusing
- Mood Swings
- Decreased Immune Functions
- Weight Gain
- Poor Workout Performances
- Decreased Libido
- Decreased Sexual Function
- Sporadic Sleep Cycles
- Weak Bones
At Optimal Bio, pellets are the preferred method of hormone replacement delivery. Over the years, Optimal Bio has worked with compounding pharmaceutical companies to produce the purest pellets possible. Small pellets, roughly the size of a grain of rice, are placed in fatty tissue of the buttocks or lower back area. The pellets can deliver a dose of either testosterone for men, or testosterone/estrogen for women. Additionally, each pellet implant lasts for several months and provides a substantial and stable release of hormones into the body.
Solutions for Men
The male body is resilient and it works efficiently when given the right components. On the cellular level, the hormone testosterone helps the body operate as expected. Low testosterone, or “Low T”, issues include a number of outward symptoms and over time, can be the cause of many physical issues.
Men have an ongoing drop in their testosterone levels from their 20s onwards. As the testosterone drops noticeably in the 40s into the 50s, doctors have started referring to this as “andropause” – rather, the male equivalent to menopause.
Solutions for Women
Women are more susceptible to feeling the effects of hormonal imbalance. When hormone levels are low, the female body will not function as it should. Low hormone levels result in a number of symptoms. As time passes, the ongoing lack of hormones can cause the body to slow down and even deteriorate faster than it really should.
When menopause occurs, a woman’s hormone levels drop dramatically. Women may experience a downward trend in testosterone and estrogen over the years, but when menopause occurs, estrogen levels can drop to zero.
