COMMON QUESTIONS

  1. What is a Bioidentical Hormone?

    Hormones are chemical messages that are sent throughout our bodies from special glands. These chemicals have a specific shape and fit into a receptor like a lock and key.

    Some synthetic chemicals and natural compounds in foods can also bind to these receptors with varying degrees of strength. After they are released and do their job, they are eliminated, usually through the liver’s detox pathways.

    Birth Control Pills are the most common example of synthetic chemicals. Bioidentical means that the hormone you are prescribed is the exact chemical structure that your body produces. We only use bioidentical hormone, which are the exact hormone that your body naturally produces. Based on your feedback and blood work, a customized prescription will be tailored to address your needs.

  2. What is the best delivery form of hormones?

    There are many different ways to administer hormones, including creams, injections, pellet implants, oral capsules, and oral lozenges or troches. The best delivery depends on the type of hormone and your health status. For example, men who are overweight do terribly with topical testosterone since it will convert into estrogen readily by the fat cells.

    For women, injectable hormones are less favorable than topical creams or some capsules. Consulting with our expert physicians is the best way to get your questions answered and feeling better ASAP!

  3. Can Thyroid Hormone help me lose weight?

    The Thyroid is a very important hormone in metabolism. It is responsible for temperature control, weight gain or loss, digestion, sleep, mental alertness, and more.

    According to some of the most recent studies in functional medicine, over 25% of patients with “normal” TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is too low in thyroid functioning. Furthermore, digestive issues such as food intolerances can shut down thyroid levels giving you a false positive.

    When healthy levels are restored, the thyroid can assist the body in weight loss. So in short, yes, but only after careful understanding of your individual health status.
