Countless women (and men) have now made the switch to bio-identical hormones, long preferred for hormone therapy in Japan, France and other European countries. It is finally receiving considerable attention in the U.S. and being more widely prescribed.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
When you explore bioidentical hormone treatment in Addision or Forney, TX, you will discover that these naturally occurring hormones offer a safe, effective treatment for many conditions.
Using hormones that are identical to the ones found in your body, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can target a wide range of symptoms using hormones custom-made for your body.
These hormones work by mimicking the natural hormones your body creates. Therefore, they can help restore function and health by balancing your body’s natural equilibrium.
We offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in Addison, TX, and Forney, TX, to anyone struggling with imbalances. Many people with menopausal or postmenopausal symptoms find that bioidentical hormones help target symptoms brought on by their body’s change in estrogen levels.
Hormone replacement therapy is always tailored to your biology. We perform bloodwork to determine your precise levels, then biologically source and customize each dose to suit your needs.
You may decide to explore BHRT to treat symptoms caused by hormonal imbalance, such as:
- Issues with metabolism
- Struggles with sexual health and infertility
- A disrupted sleep-wake cycle
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- Hormone-induced acne
- Low testosterone (hypogonadism)
- Thyroid disease
- Type 2 diabetes
BHRT is not a substitute for other proven treatments of these conditions. However, it can, in some cases, eliminate the need for additional interventions. Patients who try BHRT may notice that many symptoms resolve as their hormone levels improve.
Routine follow-ups and collaboration with your primary care physician are all part of the treatment process.

All forms of hormonal therapy have potential risk of side effects. The exact side effects vary by hormone, but general reactions can include dizziness, headaches, weight gain, blurry eyesight, bloating, cramping, mood swings, skin changes, acne, and increased facial hair.

Andropause? What’s That?
Often, when we seek help from our primary practitioners, we are band-aided with antidepressants, sleeping and anti-anxiety pills and a host of other medications. These drugs have additional side effects such as weight gain, zombie like state, dependency for sleep, decreased sex drive and so forth, not a good remedy! Furthermore, they do not address the root problem that is causing the symptoms!
