What causes a hormone imbalance?

Having a hormone imbalance means your body, for any number of reasons, makes too much or too little of a hormone or hormones. 

Your body needs the right balance of hormones for your tissues and organs to function optimally. This mix of hormones controls your body’s:

  • Stress/mood levels
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Libido
  • Sex characteristics
  • Metabolism
  • Energy levels
  • Blood pressure
  • Physical growth 

When hormone levels become imbalanced, that affects the function of your entire system—sometimes with terrible consequences.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Rebalances Your System

BHRT provides an effective treatment for hormone imbalance. The hormones in the BHRT pellets are chemically identical to the natural hormones your body produces. 

The BHRT Procedure

After your initial consultation with Dr. Christi to discuss the signs that you need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, her team will schedule your procedure. In the meantime, lab work from blood samples will be analyzed, with your specific symptoms and risk factors considered, to create the correct BHRT dosage pellets.

The implantation of BHRT pellets is simple and relatively pain-free. During your 30 minute procedure, Dr. Christi will first numb your skin at the implant site with local anesthesia. Once that’s ready, she’ll insert the cylinder-shaped bioidentical hormone pellets through a small incision, using a small insertion tube.
