Hormones regulate a wide variety of functions, so they must be in balance for you to achieve optimal levels of health and wellness. Your natural hormones can become imbalanced due to stress, aging, or pregnancy.
Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant chemicals and match the molecular structure of hormones produced in our bodies. With bioidentical hormone therapy, Dr. Taylor customizes a blend of hormones according to your symptoms.
Bioidentical hormone therapy can improve a variety of health issues with the supplementation of vital sex hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These issues include:
Bioidentical hormone therapy resolves a number of issues you might consider as natural, inevitable effects of aging, such as:
During age-related hormone decline, men and women can lose several pounds of muscle mass, however, improving hormone levels improves muscle tone and results in a leaner appearance.
Maintaining optimal hormone balance can increase sexual function and libido and minimize symptoms of vaginal dryness and erectile dysfunction. Both of which can improve intimate relationships and boost confidence in men and women.
Appearance of Skin and Hair
Proper levels of hormones, especially into old age, can help you maintain a lustrous head of hair and strong fingernails.
Balancing hormones with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps men and women to keep an active metabolism and prevent sudden hormone related weight gain.
Restoring hormones to healthy levels can help men and women improve and preserve their memory and cognitive function.
Maintaining healthy hormone levels helps prevent bone thinning in men and women and even reverses some of the effects of osteoporosis.
Dr. Taylor offers BioTE pellet therapy for bioidentical hormone replacement. Unlike other forms of bioidentical hormone replacement, this method provides a sustained 24/7 release of hormones, thus mimicking the natural physiology of the body. It’s a longer term treatment, lasting three to five months for women and up to six months for men. The pellets pose no danger to loved ones, small children, or pets who may experience serious side effects if they come into contact with hormone creams.
In addition to pellets, Dr. Taylor offers many other forms of hormone therapy including oral, topical, troches, injections, and patches. She customizes each treatment plan based on needs and patient preferences. Dr. Taylor also works very closely with her compounding pharmacist, Gayane, at Arcade Lane Compounding Pharmacy in Pasadena, for patients who do not want pellets. She is also happy to work with another pharmacy depending on patient preference.
