Have you ever wondered why some people who are well into their golden years are bubbling with youth and vitality, while others, decades younger, seem to be aging far faster? The truth is age really is just a number. The deteriorating effects of “growing old” have far more to do with what’s happening inside your body on a cellular level, than simply by the latest number on your birthday cake.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a proven and effective method for correcting hormonal imbalances and the effects of aging naturally.
At the DaSilva Institute, our hormone specialists have one goal – to restore your hormones back to your optimum levels to improve mood, energy, mental clarity, and even appearance. We do this by using only natural bioidentical hormones, which are molecularly identical to the hormones your body produces. Natural bioidentical hormones are a safer alternative to synthetic hormones that often come with negative side effects and serious health risks.
To reach this goal and to find your optimal levels we will need to see your labs.
Hormone testing & evaluation:
First, we will order the initial lab tests, which can be performed in our clinic or at a lab of your choosing. Next, we’ll arrange a consultation with one of our hormone specialists (either by phone or in our clinic) to discuss your hormonal imbalance symptoms, review your blood test results, and discuss your treatment options.
Personalized hormone therapy program:
If indicated, we will prescribe customized, compounded bioidentical hormones and pharmacy-grade supplements that meet your unique needs. You can choose a compounding pharmacy, or we can give recommendations.
[Important note: We will recommend only those compounding pharmacies we have personally audited to ensure they meet the most stringent standards. They must prove that they adhere to strict procedures to provide pure and sterile compounds. If choosing your own pharmacy to compound your bioidenticals, make sure it’s PCCA certified (a third-party certifying company)].
Your individualized therapy program, based on your age and medical status, may include the following:
- Progesterone and estrogen
- Human Growth Hormone
- Melatonin, DHEA, and Adrenal Hormones (Cortisol)
- Pharmaceutical grade supplements
- Lifestyle and dietary recommendations
Follow-up & maintenance:
During your therapy, we will reevaluate your hormone levels every six months to ensure that you are maintaining optimum balance. To teach you how to balance your hormones going forward, we will also offer nutritional guidance and support.
