Portland area doctor describes the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

Bioidentical hormone therapy Portland expert doctor

Many patients have heard of hormone replacement therapy, but Dr. Adam Maddox of Portland takes it a step further and provides BHRT, also known as Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. This is a different approach to balancing the hormones during the aging process for both men and women. Andropause and menopause are times in which patients may begin to need assistance in balancing their hormones to maintain a better quality of life and help feel their absolute best every day. Instead of using traditional chemical hormone compounds, the doctor encourages patients to consider bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, as the hormones are derived from natural sources such as yams or soy. This ensures that all that enters the body is compatible, ensuring a reduction in side effects and problems that often occur with chemical solutions.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy helps in restoring balance to the hormones during the “change of life.” It can help with progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen levels. Deficiencies are identified through a saliva test to determine the levels of specific hormones, and then prescribe a mixture to help bring the body back in balance. A prescription is filled by the pharmacy using hormones from natural sources, and patients can get their body in balance for better performance, function, overall health, and vitality.

The primary benefit of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is the ability to restore the balance of hormones without chemicals or man-made hormones. Instead, these hormones come from natural sources, ensuring a more “natural” approach to hormone restoration. The doctor is a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist who understands how important it is to avoid introducing manmade chemicals into the body and encourages patients to consider biocompatible alternatives.

If you are going through the change of life and are interested in learning more about naturopathic ways of balancing the hormones in the system, contact Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive today to book a consultation appointment and examination. He can evaluate the levels of hormones and help you restore balance with a simple prescription.
