OptiHealth Institute’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Program
At OptiHealth, we use a variety of methods to administer hormone therapy, including pellets, pills, topicals, and injections. Your delivery method will depend upon the type of therapy you need and your preference. Pellets, about the size of a grain of rice, are implanted under the skin in the fatty tissue, to release small doses of hormones, mimicking the body’s natural hormone production. Pellets can last between 3 to 6 months and are completely dissolved before the next pellet is inserted, and insertions are virtually painless.

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Men have their peak testosterone levels in their late 20’s, and then it’s downhill from there. The result is andropause or male menopause. Low testosterone levels can result in depression, fatigue, irritability, frailty, sleep problems and decreased sexual drive. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy will balance your testosterone levels, significantly reduce these symptoms and greatly improve your quality of life. Common outcomes are:
- Mood stability, decreased irritability and depression
- Increased sexual drive
- More energy
- Greater concentration and ability to focus
- Better sleep
- Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
In women, hormone imbalances are common during monthly menstruation, peri-menopause (which can occur in the 30’s), menopause. In addition to reproductive-related changes, hormone imbalances can also be caused by thyroid disease, adrenal issues, stress, metabolic syndromes, environmental toxin, and smoking.
When estrogen, progesterone and testosterone production fluctuates, women may experience weight gain, mood changes, low energy, slower metabolism, hot flashes, insomnia, and decreased sex drive. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can reverse these symptoms and greatly improve your quality of life in many ways, including:
- Improved weight management
- Better skin, hair, and nails
- Less anxiety, depression, irritability, and stress
- Improved sexual desire
This treatment can also decrease a woman’s risk for osteoporosis, dementia and heart disease. Estrogen contributes to maintaining bone mineral density. After menopause, women are at higher risk for bone density loss, partially because of the loss of estrogen levels.
