Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
(for Women & Men)
Balancing hormones is an art. Dr. Alexandria has focused on this therapy since she started practicing nearly 20 years ago. She used bio-identical hormones long before they were a buzzword in women's and men's health. Over the years she has helped thousands of patients obtain optimal hormone health.
Dr. Alexandria begins by testing both your blood serum levels and 24-hour urine samples for hormone levels. She then surveys digestive, liver, thyroid and adrenal health to get a complete picture of your system. Based on that information, bio-identical hormones from a reputable compounding pharmacy may be prescribed.
Dr. Alexandria typically applies low-dose applications of hormones as part of a WHOLE hormone balancing strategy that works with your physiology - this is not just hormone replacement. Hormones applied may include estrogen, DHEA, progesterone, and testosterone. Nutritional and lifestyle strategies are also considered.
This holistic therapy helps women with PMS, fertility, and perimenopausal and postmenopausal symptoms to overcome fatigue, hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, cardiovascular symptoms, headaches, muscle tension, irritability, anxiety, depression, and lack of mental clarity to return to a state of optimum health and a feeling of wellbeing.
For men, hormone replacement often addresses issues of fatigue, depression, decreased sex drive, weight gain, and cardiovascular function.
