WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY?
Your body relies on hormones to control growth, as well as support digestion, brain functions, sleep patterns, and sexual activity. When changes in your body occur, some symptoms can interrupt your comfortable way of living and dramatically impact your life. To address these issues, our team at HEALOR Primary Care offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to men and women who need to achieve a balance that allows the body to function properly. Anyone who suffers from symptoms of hormone imbalance can find relief from trusted bioidentical hormones, plant-based supplements, and other products we may prescribe. Our concern for our patients’ well-being extends to improving their quality of life by utilizing proven, natural methods. If you've noticed certain symptoms (such as fatigue, headaches, depression, or lowered libido) having a negative effect on your life, reach out to our Las Vegas, NV office and schedule your consultation with one of our skilled primary care physicians.

WHAT DOES BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY INVOLVE?
At your one-on-one consultation, one of our primary care physicians will ask about your symptoms and run some blood work to determine your hormone levels and what kind of care you may benefit from. From there, a personalized treatment plan will be created to restore your comfort and wellness, as well as target the issues that have negatively impacted your life. There are many ways to administer bioidentical hormones, including uniquely customized pellets, creams, and patches. Some individuals may even receive a combined treatment if our doctors determine that this is the appropriate solution. We will consider your preferences and the options that best suit your lifestyle needs.
FOLLOW-UP AFTER BHRT
At HEALOR Primary Care, we monitor our patients receiving hormone treatment very closely. Over time, your dosage will be adjusted according to your unique needs and symptoms so we can use the lowest level of hormone replacement needed to improve your overall wellness. During your periodic check-up visits to our Las Vegas, NV office, you may have to get routine urine, saliva, and blood tests so we can monitor your hormone levels and determine if the treatment is working as it should.
