Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an innovative way to treat conditions caused by hormone imbalances. Dr. Strong uses bioidentical hormones to replace those that you’re missing. They’re identical in structure to the hormones that your body naturally produces.

If you’ve been feeling “off” lately, a hormone imbalance or deficiency might be the cause.


What conditions can hormone therapy help treat?

Hormone therapy helps treat a wide variety of symptoms and conditions, most of which are caused by a significant hormonal change like menopause.

For men, hormone therapy refills testosterone and manages:

  • Lack of energy
  • Erectile dysfunction 
  • Insomnia
  • Weight gain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Low sex drive

For women, hormone therapy increases estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels, and treats:

  • Lack of energy
  • Low sex drive
  • Painful intercourse
  • Sleep distubances
  • Hot flashes

The symptoms listed aren’t the only ones that indicate a hormone imbalance or deficiency. If you experience any other unusual or unexplained symptoms, Dr. Strong evaluates them to see if hormones are at fault.


What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

There are many benefits of hormone therapy, enhanced by the bioidentical hormones that Dr. Strong uses to treat your deficiency. After hormone therapy, you’ll likely notice:

  • An improved mood
  • More energy and alertness 
  • Higher libido
  • Better sleep
  • Fat loss
  • Increased muscle
  • Higher bone density

In general, you’ll feel better than you did before you started treatment. Even if you were unsure about trying hormone therapy for the first time, you’ll see a difference and thank yourself.


What should I expect at my hormone therapy appointment?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Strong discusses your symptoms and decides if hormones are to blame. He gives you a complete physical exam and takes your medical history, then obtains blood test to determine the hormone deficiency you have.

Once Dr. Strong gets the results of your blood test, he gets organic plant-material pellets containing the hormones you need. These pellets are the size of a grain of rice. He implants them under your skin during a quick in-office procedure. They gradually release the hormones directly into your bloodstream to replenish your levels.

Hormone deficiencies are difficult to identify without professional help. To find out if your hormones are off-balance and explore hormone therapy as a treatment, call Strong Health & Wellness or book your appointment online today.
