What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that have been extracted from a variety of different sources like plants or animals. They act in the body the same way the naturally produced hormones do.

As the body ages, the natural production of hormones can slow or even stop altogether. This change can be the source of deficiencies and other problems. Based on your hormone levels, Dr. Ferro can design a bioidentical hormone regimen specifically for your individual needs.

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement?

Dr. Ferro has used bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to treat many different conditions and has been beneficial in aiding symptoms such as:

  • Reduction of hot flashes
  • Reducing osteoporosis
  • Improving sleep, muscle aches and pains
  • Positive mood changes mood
  • Relieves the symptoms of urinary frequency
  • Reduces cardiovascular disease
  • Significantly improves vaginal dryness and sexual function

What is hormone pellet therapy?

Hormone pellets are the most natural way to deliver bio identical hormone treatment for both men and women alike.
