Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men & Women

Eden Prairie Minnesota Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Specialists of The MediSpa at Life Time Athletic offer customized Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy plans to both men and women. There are significant differences in the risks, benefits, and safety between natural and synthetic hormonal replacement. Bioidentical Hormones are molecularly identical to the hormones naturally found in your body. They are known to be safer and more effective than chemically similar synthetic versions.

Many people find that although they take good care of their bodies with proper nutrition and exercise, they still feel fatigued, or can’t lose extra weight. Hormones are often the missing piece of the Trifecta of health, which include nutrition, fitness, and hormonal balance.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Women

Have you noticed unwelcomed changes in the past few years? Changes to your energy levels, moods, and to your libido? It could be your hormones. As we age, the levels of our hormones decrease. The effect is undeniable. Fortunately, hormone levels can be restored to the optimal levels of your youth, and there are advanced methods that make it safer and more effective. Many patients report improvements of their clinical symptoms and quality of life as a result of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Estrogen and Progesterone

Optimal levels of estrogen and progesterone and the balance between these two critical Bioidentical Hormones is perhaps the most important intervention that can support long-term health and wellness in women. When these hormones are in balance, patients often experience fewer headaches, improved moods, increased muscle mass, bone strength, and an improved sex life. Cosmetic improvements can include smoother skin and improved hair texture. Progesterone may be indicated to women who are pre-menopausal, peri-menopausal, and post-menopausal. Bioidentical forms of estrogen (estradiol and estriol) are only given to women in menopause.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Men

If you feel that you have lost your edge, it could be Low T. Low testosterone (Low T) is the male equivalent of menopause, also known as andropause. If you have Low T, it’s possible to restore your hormones back to the optimal, physiological levels of your youth, while not exceeding normal limits that are vital in restoring your health and wellness.

Testosterone & DHEA

Testosterone enhances energy, muscle mass, and sex drive, while decreasing body fat. It can also lower blood pressure and help improve cholesterol levels. Clinical studies have shown that DHEA has a beneficial effect on immune response, metabolism, and emotional stability and supports cognitive function, stress management, and protects against heart disease. We deliver testosterone in pellet form, so your levels will be replenished 24/7 and will remain in your system for 4-5 months.

Bioidentical Hormones For Both Men & Women

Thyroid Hormone

Thyroid hormones regulate temperature, metabolism, and cerebral function. Insufficient thyroid levels can result in fatigue, hair loss, skin thinning and dryness, muscle aches, increased cholesterol levels, and increased risk of coronary artery disease. With age, thyroid hormone levels gradually decline, resulting in a slowed metabolism, which affects all cells and organs. We measure and supplement both Bioidentical T3 and Bioidentical T4 hormones for the greatest impact.

Melatonin

Melatonin helps initiate sleep, promotes better quality of sleep, and is known to be a powerful antioxidant and free radical neutralizer. Among many other benefits, deep sleep is known to stimulate the immune system. In most cases, patients who rely on sleeping agents may be able to reverse their dependency on these products through a slow-release prescribed formula as part of their Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Extended release pellets

About the size of a grain of rice, pellets are injected just beneath the skin, usually in the hip or buttock area in a simple, 15-minute office procedure. This method enables your circulatory system to distribute and absorb the hormones consistently throughout the lifecycle of the pellet, 24/7. Hormone pellets are completely customized to you, 100% natural and do not contain fillers or additives.

Before Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is recommended, an in-depth consultation is scheduled with the Eden Prairie, Minnesota Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Specialists of The MediSpa at Life Time Athletic to discuss unique symptoms. A blood test is also completed to gain a bench work analysis of hormone levels. Throughout the therapy, a combination of regular check-in consultations and follow-up blood work analyses ensure you receive the proper dose at the proper frequency to attain and retain optimal results.
