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.
Dr. Ferro has used bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to treat many different conditions and has been beneficial in aiding symptoms such as:
As men and women and get older, many often wonder whether bioidentical hormones are the right option for them. Bioidentical hormones, coupled with the expertise of a highly trained physician like Dr. Alex Ferro, can contribute to your overall well-being.
The decision to use bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a personal one based on individual needs and assessment. The first step in deciding on the use of bioidentical hormones is to speak with Dr. Alex Ferro about your individual symptoms and ask any questions you may have about the process. From there, Dr. Ferro can develop a treatment plan based on your specific requirements. If you have a history of serious conditions, such as breast cancer or cardiovascular disease, bioidentical hormones might not be the right option for you.
Hormone pellets are the most natural way to deliver bio identical hormone treatment for both men and women alike. The pellets are made of estradiol or testosterone and implanted under the skin, where they consistently release small doses of bio-identical hormones. Because the pellets are hormones, it allows your body to use the exact amount as needed.
