Bio Identical Hormone Therapy
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement therapy involves replacing EXACTLY what the body is missing due to age, stress, or both. This non-drug form of therapy means there are no side effects since the therapy is not a foreign substance in the body. Bio-identical therapy restores balance, and we can prove that balance is restored by checking subsequent hormone levels.
At your first visit, you will meet with Lynda Quesnel NP
to discuss and prioritize your symptoms over time.
Based on this initial assessment, the appropriate testing will be ordered.
This can include blood tests for detailed thyroid function, and salivary adrenal and gonadal performance.
Your results will be reviewed at your second visit and targeted bio-identical therapy will be prescribed.
At follow-up visits every 6-12 weeks, progress is assessed using many indicators.
Only rarely will repeat salivary testing be necessary in the first 6 months.
