Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
At CHIC we are proud to offer the latest in preventive personalized medicine. Too often we hear of people who wait for serious symptoms to crop up before seeking treatment. Why not take an interventionary approach that can get the body into optimum balance before health issues even present themselves?
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a functional, holistic approach to achieving the ideal balance of hormone levels in the body that men and women generally experience in youth. By supplementing the body’s naturally produced hormones with bio-identical, plant-derived hormones in a way that mimics natural cycles, the common complaints associated with decreased or unbalanced hormone levels in the body can be reduced or eliminated.
The Centre for Hormonal and Integrative Care provides treatments for women and men of all ages that safely and naturally alleviate the symptoms of hormone imbalance. With factors such as chemical toxicity in our home and work environments and the damaging effects of stress and anxiety, more and more people are feeling the early warning signs of insufficient hormone levels. At CHIC our goal is to help minimize the ill effects of aging.
WHAT HORMONES DO:
Hormones are substances produced in the body by a series of organs called glands. Your glands are part of a complex system that includes the thyroid, pituitary gland, adrenal glands, ovaries, testes and more. Each hormone that your body secretes has a specific function that helps to regulate the action of cells all over the body, so they act as messengers to keep the body function properly. Specific hormones regulate hundreds of biological processes and there is no organ that is untouched by the work that hormones do.
As we get older, hormone production tends to slow down, and the results of decreased hormone levels often lead to uncomfortable effects that we commonly associate with the aging process. In addition, factors in our modern world, including the consumption of pesticides and chemicals can disrupt normal hormone production and lead to imbalanced
hormone levels. Our wellness and nutrition page provides more information about effects of commonly used chemicals on our endocrine system.
WHAT WE DO at CHIC:
Bio-mimetic hormone replacement therapy is a system of using plant-derived natural hormones to mimic the body’s original, healthy hormone cycles. Bio-mimetic hormone replacement therapy uses plant-derived hormonal compounds, taken primarily from wild yam and soy that can be compounded into pills and creams and prescribed in varying amounts throughout the month to mimic natural body cycles.
