A Breakthrough in Achieving Hormonal Balance
Hormones are very powerful. When they are in balance, life is good. We feel energetic, happy, sexy, and alive. We sleep well and are energized in the morning. Our weight loss efforts from good nutrition and fitness programs actually work. We lose weight and keep it off. On the other hand, when hormones are out of balance, multiple symptoms can arise.
Think you might be experiencing hormonal imbalance?
The traditional way of treating these symptoms is with antidepressants or synthetic hormones called Conventional Hormone Therapy (CHT). examples of CHT include medications such as Premarin™, Provera™ (medroxyprogesterone acetate), Evista™, Activella™, all oral contraceptives, levonorgestrel and norethindrone. Women have had less than favorable results or even adverse outcomes with these synthetic hormones.
At The Johnson Center, we only use bioidentical estrogens, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA, when indicated. Bioidentical hormones are an exact replica of the hormones that are produced in your body. Bioidentical hormones mimic human hormones on all biologic pathways/receptors. They fit into the corresponding receptor perfectly. The other difference between CHR and BHRT is that BHRT treatment regimens are custom-tailored to the individual based on results of blood testing, medical history, physical exam, and symptoms. CHT is a “one-size-fits-all” approach.
