Am I a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Dr. Hall evaluates your symptoms and determines if your problems are because of hormone imbalance. If you’re in otherwise good health, it’s likely that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a good option for you.

What should I expect during bioidentical hormone therapy appointment?

Dr. Hall is passionate about determining the root cause of your hormone imbalance instead of putting a bandage on your symptoms. After a comprehensive examination and conversation with you, which includes extensive lab testing, he makes recommendations for lifestyle and diet changes. 

Based on your unique condition and hormone levels, he recommends a customized blend of bioidentical hormones, which act exactly like natural hormones in your body. Dr. Hall and his knowledgeable team are adept at knowing which hormones you need to replace and the precise quantity you need to optimize your health.

Depending on the type of bioidentical replacement therapy that Dr. Hall thinks is right for you, you’ll take a pill, apply a cream or gel, or have a slow-release pellet injected into your buttocks. 

He monitors you periodically to understand how your body is metabolizing the bioidentical hormones as it relates to a range of epigenetic factors, such as:

  • Medications
  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Environmental toxins
  • Genetics
  • Medication
