Hormone balance is essential to healing, longevity, and your quality of life.
Sex, stress, and thyroid hormones help regulate hundreds of essential processes in your body, and hormonal shifts as a result of aging or illness can affect every aspect of your well-being. Hormone imbalances can cause distracting, uncomfortable symptoms, including mood swings, sleep issues, sexual dysfunction, and changes in your weight, appetite, and skin. At The Center for Fully Functional Health in Carmel, IN, we specialize in discovering and correcting hormonal imbalances, so you live happy, healthy, and Fully Functional! By carefully analyzing hormone levels and the factors that impact them, we can offer a customized Hormone Therapy plan that uses the most natural options and modern treatment modalities, including the placement of hormone pellets.
Safe, Natural Hormone Therapy
Optimizing your hormone levels means examining several potential areas of imbalance, including your thyroid hormones, vitamin D levels (Yes, vitamin D is actually a hormone!), cortisol, and sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Our clinical team is extremely experienced at recognizing the subtle signs of hormone issues and creating a natural plan personalized to your needs. Many patients benefit from supplementing sex hormones through Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. CFFH Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can rebalance hormones to restore your vitality, an important aspect of living Fully Functional. BHRT uses hormones molecularly identical to those found in your body, which can tremendously improve your health and wellbeing.
Hormone imbalance is one of the most common issues we see in our office. Synthetic options are not identical to the hormones in your body and can pose unwanted risks. Fortunately, hormone replacement therapy has come a long way. BHRT is commonly used by people with medical conditions where hormones are affected or thrown off balance, including:
Care Tailored To Your Unique Hormone Composition
Everyone’s hormone composition has their own “fingerprint,” meaning it’s unique to you! When you adjust levels of one hormone, you must carefully watch important ratios throughout the body. Hormones that could be off balance include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, human growth hormone, thyroid, cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Living a Fully Functional life means optimizing your hormone health. Your hormones operate on circadian rhythms throughout your body to keep things running smoothly, including waking in the morning and getting sleepy at night. Some of the other functions your hormones influence include:
BHRT can offer improvement in all of these areas, and your Health Clinician will work with you to determine your goals and the appropriate therapeutic protocol. Your daily wellbeing is so intertwined with your hormone function, it’s no surprise that when your hormones are off-balance, your whole life can feel off balance. The Center for Fully Functional Health is here to help!
Achieve optimal hormone balance naturally
For many of our patients, BHRT offers newfound exuberance and vibrancy. We don’t immediately recommend BHRT therapy for everyone. Instead, we work through the important process of identifying lifestyle changes that can help your body naturally rebalance its own hormones. That being said, if you have been experiencing any of the symptoms below, it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment:
If you can relate to any of the symptoms mentioned above, we hope you consider scheduling an appointment. Let us help you feel better, faster.
Restore Youthful Energy On Your Way to Fully Functional
There are a number of factors that cause your body’s hormones to be thrown out of their natural, healthy rhythms, including your age, medication use, diet, sleep, and stress. Hormones exist in a delicate balance, so if you’re going to manipulate the levels of one, you need to watch the ratios of others. BHRT is designed to do just that, and its many benefits may include:
The key to getting the most out of BHRT is to work with a Functional Medicine doctor who understands the importance of restoring balance to hormones and how to do so properly. At CFFH, our Physicians are experts at detecting hormone imbalances and restoring optimal hormone function.
A Whole-Human Approach to Hormonal Health
If you suspect hormone issues, the first step is to schedule a Hormone Balance Focus Appointment. This all-inclusive appointment package includes the consultations and baseline labs needed to detect any hormone imbalances and create a treatment plan. Based on your medical history and test results, your Clinician will tell you whether Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or other treatment solutions are best for you and your needs. It’s important to remember that hormone health is multifaceted, and there is no one-size-fits all approach. That’s why it’s key to work with a team like CFFH, who understands the dozens of hormones and hundreds of symptoms that can be involved, as well as the safest, most modern approaches to hormone replacement.
We are proud to offer a range of Hormone Therapy, including BHRT and a variety of cutting-edge MedSpa treatments that can calm your symptoms and restore optimal hormone balance. In addition to hormone replacement, your Practitioner may advise the use of hormone-balancing supplements, Balance IV Therapy, or other wellness services. Schedule your Hormone Balance Focus Appointment to get started, and our compassionate team will listen carefully, perform the right testing, then offer the treatment plan that is right for you.
Assessing your hormone health is typically pain-free, beyond a minor pinch for lab blood draws. Your BHRT protocol may involve creams, injections, or subcutaneous hormone pellets, depending on your preferences and current hormone levels. Other hormone replacement may involve capsules or nose sprays.
Side effects to hormone replacement therapy are typically due to one hormone not being properly balanced against another, and we do all we can to prevent them. We are happy to discuss any concerns and answer your questions at your appointment.
BHRT Costs and Options
Costs depend on many factors, including any underlying conditions and your body’s needs. We always work to treat the underlying cause of imbalance hormones through effective lifestyle management first, which brings the cost of BHRT down. Testing will initially be required, and then your Physician or Nurse Practitioner will discuss options to address your unique needs.
Many insurance companies cover the cost of hormone testing, as well as some hormone replacement prescriptions. Other BHRT treatment options are not covered and will need to be paid for out of pocket. Our qualified, friendly team will help you determine what the cost will be for your plan and ensure there are no surprises.
