HEIGHTEN YOUR VITALITY

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an alternative approach that more closely represents the body’s own chemical structure of hormones. They are usually derived from plant sources such as wild yams or soy in contrast to synthetic hormones used in conventional HRT.

GET STARTED

Here at VIOR, we have a precise process to determine if you are a candidate for BHRT and then get you started with a custom program.

The Examination

Once we have identified that hormonal imbalance may be a contributing factor to your health concerns, a physical examination, detailed history and symptom review are performed.

Blood Testing

Initial blood testing is done to determine your current hormonal state and combined with specific questionnaires to determine if you qualify for this type of treatment. This may be supplemented with urine and/or saliva testing.

Start Hormones

Many patients opt for the bio-identical approach because it strays away from the “one size fits all” approach and provides a personal, customized treatment protocol.

Cream Applications

Cream applicators in a variety of bases. The creams are applied daily and the hormone is absorbed through the skin and interacts with the hormone receptor.

Injections

Testosterone may be injected intramuscularly. Most common injection is the gluteal muscle. Formats include Testosterone Cypionate, Enanthate and Proprionate in either a Grapeseed or Sesame oil base.

Pellet Therapy

Hormone Pellets are inserted below the surface of the skin and gradually release the desired hormone into the body. A simple procedure is performed in our office every 3-4 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

We offer a wide variety of options for bioidentical hormone replacement in our Miami office. Options include injections, topical creams and pellet insertions.

Typically we start with blood levels for all patients, however we may require urine or saliva in addition to the blood depending on the case.

As we age, our hormone production decreases. These hormone deficiencies can increase the risk of age related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, stroke and senility.

The reason for this decline is a variety of factors including chronic stress (chemical, emotional, physical), environment endocrine disruptors, GI imbalance, suboptimal liver function, sleep disturbances and age related decline.
