Bioidentical hormones are compounds that have the exact chemical structure as the hormones that are produced by your own body. They are a safer and more effective alternative to synthetic hormones which have been linked to cancer and heart disease. Bioidentical hormones can help you age gracefully and reduce symptoms of perimenopause or menopause in women and andropause (low testosterone) or midlife crisis in men. Some symptoms of lower hormone levels are weight gain, low sex drive, hair loss, wrinkles, memory loss, insomnia, high cholesterol, hot flashes, headaches, heart disease, stroke, bone loss, body aches, fatigue, dry skin, anxiety and depression.
Hormone replacement therapy can be delivered by creams, pills, injections or pellets. Dr. Melinda Silva will personalize a treatment that is right for you.
The median age for menopause is 51 years old, but perimenopause symptoms such as mood changes, fatigue, brain fog, insomnia, hot flashes, weight gain, decreased libido, vaginal dryness, hair loss, etc. can occur up to 15 years earlier (typically after 35 years of age). Research shows bioidentical hormone therapy, a safer alternative to synthetic hormones that can cause cancer, can help to balance emotional and physical changes and help to restore energy, mood, and sex drive. Bioidentical hormones can help women feel stronger and live healthier and happier lives. Don’t delay treatment; you deserve to feel well and get your life back!
Hormone imbalances can occur during adolescence, causing irregular or painful periods. Pregnancy and postpartum changes can also change periods and cause mood changes. Other hormone imbalances can be caused by PCOS, endometriosis, and ovarian cysts. Find out if bioidentical hormones can help you.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Fatigue is the most common symptom of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), also known as Post-Concussion Syndrome. TBI can cause hormonal deficiencies leading to symptoms like depression, memory issues, personality changes, anger, sleep difficulties, weakness, and loss of libido.
TBI can also lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and is caused by head trauma from sports injuries, war combat, abuse, or accidents such as cars, bikes, or falls. Dr. Silva is a TBI-certified specialist and prescribes a customized treatment of bioidentical hormones and supplements to support brain function and optimal health. Veteran and student discounts are available for brain injury consultations.
