Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
It is different from Synthetic hormones that we usually buy at pharmacies (usually over the counter hormones). These synthetic hormones do not have the same chemical structure as the natural hormones the human body is born with. Therefore, they give incomplete messages to our cells which fail to produce a balanced hormonal response that results to its many reported undesirable side effects.
All of the hormones in the body are designed to work together for optimum health. If one is altered or deficient, it will affect the actions of all the other hormones. Consequently, Bio-identical, compounded, and customized hormone replacement is the only way to achieve this balance and replace hormones safely.
We source our Bio-identical hormones from APOTHECA INTEGRATIVE PHARMACY, the country's only FDA-licensed compounding pharmacy that specializes in custom compounded medication. Apotheca partners with the Professional Compounding Center of America (PCCA) and Medisca USA and Australia, assuring you of the highest quality compounded medications.
Many diseases are the result of prolonged and advanced nutritional imbalance, so the key is to address the problem at the root by replenishing these vitamins and minerals. An ounce of Early preventative treatment is definitely worth more than a pound of cure!
If you have been dealing with a chronic fatigue or illness, your immune, endocrine (hormonal), and hepatic systems (elimination of toxins) are likely severely depleted of nutrients and overtaxed. Taking oral supplements will likely not be enough to compensate for your accumulated deficit (or it may take too long). IV nutritional therapy delivers high doses of vitamins, minerals and other essential elements directly into the bloodstream and into the very cells that most need help, thus giving a quick boost and closing the existing nutritional deficit.
We practice customized medicine thus each IV drip is personalized specially for each patient. The type of ingredients used are based on your specific needs/symptoms and doses are computed based on your age and weight.
Some high dose drips for special conditions can take up to 2-3 hours. Our concierge will inform you ahead of time for scheduling, length of time of IV and other details.
After an IV infusion you can go back to doing your regular activity for the day.
