Bio-identical Hormone Therapy

Discover a renewed sense of vitality and well-being with bio-identical hormone replacement.

What are Bio-identical Hormones

Let's demystify the concept of bio-identical hormones. When we say "bio-identical," it simply means that these hormones are an exact replica of the ones naturally produced by your body. In theory, your body should be unable to differentiate whether the hormone originated internally or was obtained from a pharmacy. Some bio-identical hormones are available from traditional pharmacies like estradiol and micronized progesterone, while others need to be compounded like testosterone cream for women.

What are Synthetic Hormones

Let's shed some light on synthetic hormones. Unlike bio-identical hormones, synthetic hormones are artificially created chemicals that aim to mimic the actions of natural hormones. However, they fall short of being an exact replica. This means that synthetic hormones are not identical to the hormones your body produces. As a result, there ARE differences in the risks and benefits associated with their use. Furthermore, measuring the levels of synthetic hormones in your body through lab tests is not currently possible.

Are Hormones Safe in Men or Women ?

For Women
  • While there are risks and benefits to everything, the benefits of hormone replacement far outweigh the risks for most women, especially women who are within 5-10 years of menopause.
  • Extensive research conducted to date has failed to establish a correlation between any form of estrogen and an elevated risk of breast cancer.
  • Conversely, studies have indicated that synthetic progesterone is the only hormone associated with an increased incidence of breast cancer.
  • On the other hand, bioidentical progesterone has long been regarded as a potentially protective factor for breast health.
For both
Men and Women
  • It is important for individuals undergoing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to undergo regular monitoring of hormone levels on an ongoing basis
For Men
  • Extensive research and clinical studies have demonstrated the overall safety of testosterone replacement therapy for men.
  • When used appropriately, testosterone replacement therapy does not appear to significantly increase the risk of prostate cancer.

What you should know before Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy?

We strongly feel to simply give hormones does the patient a disservice. We are all bio-individual meaning we will all have different hormonal needs AND will all breakdown hormones in a different fashion.

It is important for your medical doctor to assess not only your hormone levels but to ALSO measure hormone metabolites to see how you breakdown your hormones BEFORE you start hormone replacement therapy.  Otherwise, you may end up losing your hair which is no good particularly if you are a woman. Men may end up with gynecomastia (man boobs) which is also not desirable.

Our approach

We do a comprehensive intake, labs are ordered to assess hormone levels: Sex, adrenal and thyroid.  Your body is optimized to receive the hormones in a process that delivers Dr Rajka’s proprietary “3-D”  protocol in a 1-2 punch. Your labs are reviewed and then you are started on therapy that is individualized to you. 3 months after starting your labs are repeated.  From start to finish you are supported to walk you through the the process to optimize your response.
