Some of the questions we get asked and their answers are listed below. You may have several questions of your own and we encourage you to call us or schedule a free consultation to obtain answers to all of your questions and to learn what we have to offer.
Why doesn’t my doctor prescribe natural hormones?
The answer partly involves the pharmaceutical companies who make money on patented drugs which they promote to physicians who prescribe them to you.
Your physician has to be self-educated and experienced in prescribing and monitoring natural hormone levels. They also have to prescribe within the constraints of your health insurance companies, who are generally not interested in preventive health and wellness.
Where do these natural hormones come from?
The pure bio-identical (human identical) hormones are extracted from plants or synthetically manufactured. What is important is that it is IDENTICAL to your body’s hormone molecule. We prescribe all the natural hormones at our clinic.
Who supplies the hormones that I need?
Our clinic sends an order to specialized pharmacies known as Compounding Pharmacies. These pharmacies are similar to the old-fashioned concept of a pharmacist with a mortar and pestle. They acquire the pure pharmaceutical-grade hormones and compound them into the form and dosage ordered by your physician as pills, capsules, liquids and creams. They are prepared specifically for you, making your treatment program customized and personalized.
Is hormone therapy in any way dangerous?
Our therapy only replaces the human hormones your body already produces. We just bring your levels back to that of a healthy 25-year-old. A trained physician monitors every client. Our program is safe.
How long does it take for me to see the results?
Many of our clients say they feel dramatically better in a matter of days. Most people can expect to notice results from 1 to 3 months after beginning hormone supplementation. Men may see physical manifestations, such as increased muscle mass, hair growth, and women may notice an improvement in their energy. The first visible changes, such as improved skin color and tone, usually take a month or so.
Are there any side effects from the treatment?
Side effects from out therapy are very rare and do not compare with the serious side effects from synthetic drugs. The possibilities may include carpal tunnel syndrome, edema and acne. These symptoms can easily be eliminated by adjusting or stopping the hormone, resuming at a lower dose and then gradually increasing to optimal levels.
