Bioidentical Hormone Optimization
Are you tired of being tired all the time even at a fairly young age? Do you lack enthusiasm and sexual drive and feel as if you’ve lost your youthful glow? If you’re a “woman of a certain age” you’ve probably heard of BHT or BHR and wondered what is it? Who needs it? How do we know? How can we have it?
Innovative Medical Therapies and Dr. Bill Fisher are here to provide treatment for hormone imbalance so you can continue to have optimal health, beauty, and radiance for life!
What is Bioidentical Hormone Optimization?
Our hormones impact all of our body processes. They are natural chemical messengers that travel throughout the body coordinating complex processes like growth, metabolism, organ function, and fertility.
They also influence the function of the immune system and alter behavior. Some of us have hormonal imbalances at an early age due to stress, lifestyle, and immunity issues. Typically, once we reach our 40s, our hormones become imbalanced and start to throw off all internal systems, changing how we look and feel, inside and out.
Hormone optimization is simply getting and keeping those hormone levels balanced and working at their best so you can feel well and not lose your vitality. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHT) is considered “alternative medicine.” It requires specialized physician training and involves hormone testing, hormone prescriptions, detailed documentation of symptoms, and careful oversight of treatment.
Treatment for hormone imbalance and BHT is rarely covered by insurance mainly because most of the hormones prescribed are compounded in a pharmacy from all natural ingredients. Dr. Fisher feels it is important to put natural hormones back into your body as nature intended!
Who Needs Treatment for Hormone Imbalance?
Many of us, men and women alike, have hormones that are not working at their optimum capacity or have become too elevated or too depressed to function well. As we age, most hormone levels decrease dramatically, and the goal of BHT is to bring those levels back into optimal range so your energy, vitality, and immunity can continue into later years.
Common Symptoms of Sub-Optimal Hormone Levels
- Weight Gain
- Loss of Muscle Mass
- Wrinkling or thinning of the skin
- Depression and stress
- Cognitive decline
- Loss of sex drive
- Sleep disorders
Treatment for hormonal imbalances can include various creams, sublingual tablets and drops, injections, supplementation, and even exercise. By replenishing hormones to optimal levels, we have witnessed our clients dramatically improve or alleviate their symptoms.
How Do You Know If You Need BHT?
If the list of symptoms above sound familiar and you’ve been to your doctor many times with complaints but no results, you may need BHT. Most patients with sub-optimal hormone levels often have similar “stories” – they just don’t feel right, have tried traditional medicine, and have yet to find a solution. Many have spent significant time and money having medical tests and visits with no improvement.
It is very common for hormone imbalances to be absent in blood work. All it takes is a tiny decrease or increase in one or two hormones to throw off your whole system. All too commonly, many patients are told that their problems are “all in their head,” yet their symptoms persist. Does any of this sound like you? Dr. Fisher can help you determine what will work best for you and help you sort through the tangled web of treatments for hormonal imbalance.
