Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a clinical specialty that we offer in our practice that can be used to slow down the aging process as well as enhance your success with our medical weight loss program. Hormonal imbalances often hinder weight loss efforts.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is one of the first hormones that declines starting at the age of 30. DHEA is a hormone produced in the body. Low levels of DHEA can decrease immune function, lead to low energy levels, slows down fat breakdown, leaving you with stubborn body fat that you cannot get rid of. Supplementation of DHEA therefore can be used to slow or reverse aging by boosting immunity, energy levels, mood, increases fat burning, improves memory. Treating DHEA deficiency can be really helpful in getting rid of stubborn belly fat.
People who are obese, have been under stress, or have been yo-yo dieting for years may have subtle thyroid problems. Treating the thryoid deficiency can greatly help in weight loss.
Pre-menopausal, perimenopausal, menopausal and andropausal patients may benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy because treatment helps bring naturally occurring hormones to appropriate levels to alleviate symptoms and optimize health.
