Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy uses hormones found naturally in the human body to return the body to a more healthful hormonal state.
hormones are derived from natural plant compounds and developed to match the structure and function of the hormones produced within the human body.
They are identical to endogenous human hormones, so the body is able to metabolize them normally, thus minimizing side effects. A unique and personal
blend of hormones is created for the individual patient, based on hormone deficiencies identified by saliva or blood tests and clinical assessment.
Thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormones are all evaluated.

body to recognize and process.
2. Bio-identicals are made by hand by our corresponding pharmacy just for you.
We can do any strength & any combination needed for you body based on your
hormone testing. Most synthetic commercial hormones come in only a couple of

4. There is a much broader selection of hormones that can be compounded in a
bio-identical blend than what is commercially available. Some of the hormones
our corresponding pharmacy utilizes are:
