HRT - Hormone Replacement Therapy

As we age our bodies begin to experience certain changes due to decreasing hormone levels. Commonly known as menopause in women and andropause in men, these changes can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain and belly fat, brain fog, difficulty sleeping, decreased libido and sexual dysfunction. These undesirable changes resulting from hormone imbalance and deficiency can be successfully treated with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy.

Do you suffer from any of the following symptoms of hormone imbalance?

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Weight gain
  • Increased belly fat
  • Fatigue
  • Low sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety/Depression

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can help

(BHRT) can help to relieve the symptoms of hormone imbalance by identifying and treating deficient hormone levels and balancing hormones as required. Synthetic hormones such as Premarin, Prempro and Provera are chemically different from our natural human hormones. By contrast, Bioidentical Hormones are biologically identical to our human hormones and are derived from natural ingredients such as soy, yams, and other plants. Bioidentical hormones are compounded by specially trained and licensed compounding pharmacists by prescription only.

Why are bioidentical hormones better?

Hormones used in BHRT are derived from natural plant / animal sources rather than synthetically engineered.

Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Right for Me?

Many women ask themselves this question if they are experiencing the symptoms caused by hormonal changes during and after menopause. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement might be just the treatment you have been waiting for to make you feel like yourself again. Dr. Croland designs and individualizes your BHRT treatment based on the results of hormone laboratory tests* which typically include: Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Cortisol, Thyroid and Vitamin D.
