Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy: Is It Right For You?

Peridot Primary Care is excited to offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy utilizing the pellet method for men, women and transgender clients!

As we age, our bodies tend to experience hormonal imbalances. While this can be a common phenomenon it can also be uncomfortable and often leads to a decline in health and wellness. Some issues that can arise from hormonal imbalances include hair loss, fatigue, thyroid disease, weight gain, depression and sexual dysfunction just to name a few.

If you are experiencing any of these issues (or more) you might be a candidate for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).

At Peridot Primary Care, we use bioidentical hormone pellets to naturally replicate the hormones that your body produces on it’s own using plant-derived hormone pellets, often derived from molecules in soy or wild yams. The pellets are then seamlessly inserted under the skin and are slowly released in to the bloodstream. Your body naturally absorbs the hormones to replicate the usually pattern of your natural hormone cycle.

Since the hormones are structurally identical to the ones naturally created by our bodies there are no side effects such as those often experienced by patients when treated with synthetic hormone substitutes.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is completely customized per patient. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your blood work as well as review where your levels should be. We work together to tailor your treatment plan to your needs.
