Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are compounds that duplicate the chemical and molecular structure of your body's natural hormones. They're plant-based instead of chemical-based, making them easier to process and more effective than synthetic chemical hormones. 

Because bioidentical hormones are almost identical duplicates, they serve the same purposes as your body's natural hormones. The Soni Medical team can design a customized bioidentical hormone compound for your body's specific needs. 

What are the signs that I may need hormone replacement therapy?

When you suffer from hormone imbalance, it's common to experience a wide range of uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • Weight gain
  • Hair thinning or loss
  • Poor libido
  • Low energy levels
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Restless sleep
  • Forgetfulness
  • Difficulty concentrating

These symptoms can occur in both men and women, and they can start at any age. But, in most cases, the symptoms appear as you approach middle age. 

If you try to ignore the symptoms or power through them, you could make things even worse. There is a link between hormone imbalance and a number of diseases and serious health conditions, including:

  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Thyroid disease
  • Sexual dysfunction

With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, you can avoid these serious consequences while also increasing your brain's serotonin level. 

Furthermore, estrogen hormones can prevent bone loss, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, heart disease, vision impairment, and colon cancer.

How does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy work?

The Soni Medical team starts with endocrine system testing. This determines exactly what your hormone deficiencies are, allowing them to create a customized plan to return you to full natural hormone levels. 

In many cases, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plans at Soni Medical include a combination of hormone replacement with estrogen or testosterone, dietary supplements, and healthy lifestyle changes. 

Usually, a member of the Soni Medical team implants testosterone or estradiol pellets subcutaneously under the skin in your hip or buttocks. Then, the pellets release the hormones your body needs over time. You can feel results in only a day or two. 

Bioidentical hormone replacement can restore you to the health that you enjoyed as a young person. Call Soni Medical or book online to get the best in hormone replacement therapy today.
