Improve Your Health with Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

At Omni’s medical spa in Olympia, we are dedicated to helping you maintain your health, happiness, and vitality through customized anti-aging hormone therapy options. As we age, hormonal changes can significantly impact our overall well-being, leading to issues such as weight gain, memory decline, fatigue, and muscle loss. These symptoms can begin as early as your 20s for hormones like progesterone and in your 30s for others.

Unfortunately, many individuals are misdiagnosed and mistreated, often receiving medications for conditions like ADD, depression, and anxiety when the root cause is a hormonal imbalance. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) offers a straightforward and effective solution by addressing the underlying hormonal deficiencies, thus improving health and restoring energy and vitality.

What Are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are designed to match the molecular structure of the hormones produced naturally by your body. Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and mimic the function of your natural hormones, allowing for seamless integration into your body’s physiology. These hormones are used to replace what your body no longer produces due to aging, stress, PCOS, thyroid disorders, or other factors.

BHRT for Women

Women may experience a decline in hormone levels as early as their 20s and 30s, leading to symptoms such as migraines, menstrual headaches, and menopause-related issues like vaginal dryness, incontinence, and urinary urgency. BHRT can effectively treat these symptoms and provide protective benefits against conditions like breast cancer, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease.

Hormone Delivery Methods for Women

  • Topical Hormones: Custom-compounded creams absorbed through the skin, bypassing liver metabolism.
  • Troches: Dissolvable tablets taken under the tongue for direct bloodstream absorption.
  • BHRT Pellets: Pellets offer a consistent release of hormones over 3 to 6 months, avoiding liver processing and hormonal fluctuations.

BHRT for Men

Men also experience hormonal decline, known as andropause, which begins around age 30 with testosterone levels dropping approximately 1% per year. By the age of 54 to 64, about 40% of men have testosterone levels below the normal range, impacting energy, sexual function, muscle mass, and increasing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, and diabetes. Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) aims to restore testosterone levels to normal, enhancing overall health and wellness.

Hormone Delivery Methods for Men

  • Topical Hormones: Custom-compounded creams for skin absorption.
  • Shots: Intramuscular or subcutaneous injections for direct and fast-acting hormone absorption.
  • BHRT Pellets: Provide steady hormone release over 3 to 6 months, avoiding liver metabolism and hormonal fluctuations.

BHRT vs. Synthetic Options 

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy offers a range of distinct advantages over traditional synthetic hormone treatments. One of the primary benefits is that bioidentical hormones are derived from natural plant chemicals, which means they more closely mimic the hormones your body naturally produces. Each treatment is customized to fit your unique physiological needs, ensuring that the therapy is precisely tailored to your specific hormone levels. Additionally, these hormones are naturally metabolized by the body, reducing the risk of side effects associated with synthetic hormones. Supported by European medical studies, bioidentical hormones are considered safer and more effective, making them an ideal choice for those seeking a natural approach to hormone replacement therapy.

Health Benefits of BHRT

The benefits of BHRT go beyond balancing your hormones. Patients who undergo BHRT often experience a significant reduction in symptoms such as urogenital discomfort, insomnia, and depression. Improved overall well-being, increased lean muscle and bone mass, and enhanced skin health are just a few of the many positive outcomes. BHRT has also been shown to lower hemoglobin A1C in diabetics and improve insulin sensitivity, making it a valuable option for those managing diabetes. Additionally, it helps reduce body fat, improve cholesterol levels, and bolster the immune system. With relief from hot flashes, night sweats, and joint pain, and a decreased risk of osteoporosis and certain cancers, BHRT not only enhances physical health but also improves quality of life and longevity.
