Bio-identical Hormones

Better sleep, sex, moods, mental clarity and weight control.
That’s the power of hormone replacement therapy.

It happens slowly at first. Your partner notices you’ve been moodier. At night, you lie awake even though you’re just so tired. And then it gets worse: You can’t focus at work. You put on the pounds and find reasons to avoid the bedroom. You might even feel depressed.

Hormonal imbalance affects both men and women at almost any age. Fortunately, our Vernon bio-identical hormone therapy offers a safe, effective way to balance your hormones and meet your body’s unique needs.

How do your hormones get out of balance?

Our naturopathic doctors meet patients who have hormonal imbalances at a variety of life stages—for women, often before, during and after menopause; and for men, any time in mid-life.

When your body produces too much or too little of hormones such as estrogen, testosterone and progesterone, for a variety of health and environmental reasons, your hormones become imbalanced, and it can affect so many parts of your health and well-being.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance:

  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Foggy brain
  • Hot flashes
  • Infertility
  • Low libido
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Sleeplessness
  • Weight gain

What are bio-identical hormones?

Bio-identical hormones, also known as ‘natural hormones,’ are identical replicas of the hormones your body naturally makes. They’re made in laboratories using soy beans and wild yams.

Why is our Vernon bio-identical hormones therapy better for you than synthetic hormones?

Synthetic hormones fit your body’s hormone receptors, but they send different messages to your cells than your natural hormones would. This can lead to numerous side effects and health risks.

Bio-identical hormones, however, have an identical structure to your own, so they send the same messages and your body can metabolize them safely and easily.

Our naturopathic physicians determine if you have a hormonal imbalance using blood, urine or saliva tests that measure your hormones. Once we get the results of your hormone testing, our Vernon bio-identical hormones therapy involves having a compounding pharmacist prepare your prescription.
