TAHQ - The Aesthetics HQ - Bio Identical Hormones
 
 
 

bio identical hormones

As part of the ageing process, our normal hormone levels decline.

Some of our hormone levels already start dropping as early as in our 20’s and 30’s!

Bio-identical hormones are chemically made hormones that are identical to our natural, endogenous hormones. The goal of these treatments is systemic anti-ageing, symptomatic relief of hormone depletion, and overall patient wellbeing.

Symptoms of hormone levels declining include:
• Decreased libido
• Erectile dysfunction in men
• Urinary incontinence in women
• Depression
• Insomnia
• Mental decline
• Osteoporosis
• Increased body fat and weight gain
• Decreased muscle mass and strength
• Increased cardiovascular risk

Myth:
The misconception is that bioidentical hormones are derived from natural sources. This is simply not true. Bio-identical hormones are made to mimic our body’s normal hormones.

Non-bio identical products are a one-size-fits all “approach to hormone replacement. The products are altered to allow for a molecule to be patented, and side-effects from their metabolism include increased cardiovascular and thrombosis risk, as well as increased cancer risk.

Individualized treatment and solutions:

Each individual (male and female) have different hormone levels occurring naturally. Ideally, as doctors, would have all patients hormone levels tested in their 20’s. This would  allow us as doctors to treat the patient according to their original normal values for better symptom relief and health.

Unfortunately, we often do not have these values when our patients become symptomatic from hormone decline, whether it be thyroid function, menopause, andropause, adrenopause or otherwise.

Blood and saliva tests allow us at TAHQ to prescribe and dose your hormone replacement to your individual requirements.

Treatments include compounded formulas to be taken as capsules or transdermal preparations. Pellets are also available for implantation.
