Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
We Are The Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Experts in Austin, TX!
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Whether you suffer from symptoms of hormone deficiencies like hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, reduced muscle mass, decreased energy, or diminished sex drive, our physician-managed bioidentical hormone replacement program may be an effective treatment to regain your vitality, naturally.
For over 20 years, Wiseman Family Practice has used bioidentical hormones. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are identical to our body’s natural hormones. Bioidentical hormones are developed from yam, soy, and other plant extracts. These extracts are then compounded at a compounding pharmacy to be biologically identical to the hormones our bodies produce, resulting in the same physiological effects as naturally occurring hormones without the negative side effects and risks of synthetic hormones.
Getting Started With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Here at Wiseman Family Practice we understand that it is not enough to identify and treat each hormone problem, but each treatment plan has to be tailored to individualized need. We are personally involved in the process of compounding each hormone at the pharmacy level. Our providers work with the compounding pharmacy to create the most natural and effective hormones. Many of our patients have personal relationships with the pharmacists, nutritionists, and other professional staff at compounding pharmacies and find it invaluable to work with them directly in their hormone and nutritional approaches.
It is our highest priority that each individual bioidentical hormone that is issued meets the highest standard of patient safety. As a medical community we are learning more on how hormones work best and safest when tailored to each individual’s risk profile, nutritional approach, environmental risks, and holistic life practices. Hormones should be part of an overall wellness program for the ultimate benefit and safety. We are proud to have Dr. Lindsey Berkson, a certified nutritionist and hormone expert to assist Wiseman Family Practice in this area of total internal balance. Dr. Berkson is a world renown author and speaker in this area and has written over fifteen books on hormones, total health, and nutrition including Hormone Deception and Safe Hormones, Smart Women. We advise each patient who is interested in bioidentical hormone replacement and total body health to set up an appointment with Dr. Berkson to tailor their individual goals.
We follow the guidelines of the lowest effective dosage and number of hormones used, which means we only prescribe what is necessary and do not recommend esoteric, unproven treatments. We always use more affordable over the counter hormones, nutraceuticals, and supplements when possible. Keeping each hormone program simple and effective is always our approach.
For added convenience we use all the latest forms of bioidentical hormone replacement including pills, creams, gels, injectables, troches, and rapid dissolve tablets. You and your provider will decide which is best for you.
