Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
KOI Wellbeing | San Diego, CA
As we age, it is natural for our hormones to wane and fluctuate, causing a hormone imbalance and resulting in discomfort, weight gain, hot flashes, insomnia and more. Bioidentical hormone therapy is a natural, viable option to combat these imbalances and support your body’s desire to perform with vitality and ease.
Our goal at KOI is to help people find their highest expression of health for a more enjoyable life, and that often means supporting your hormonal health with a specialized treatment plan using bioidentical hormone therapy.
Are you a candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Are you experiencing any of these symptoms? If so you may have a hormone imbalance. Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers that affect your physiological and emotional state of being. Bioidentical Hormones can help your body adjust and maintain appropriate hormone level to regain your highest quality of life once again.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), also known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, is a term referring to the use of hormones that are identical on a molecular level with endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy. These plant based hormones are used to supplement and replace your own hormone levels for optimal quality of life and health.
Bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources and are designed to replicate your unique hormonal chemical structure. Using our specialized lab tests, our naturopathic doctor will tailor a bioidentical hormone regimen designed specifically for you! We utilize only the highest-quality, FDA approved hormones that will help you reclaim your balance naturally from the inside out.
What Is Compounding?
Compounding is the art and science of creating personalized medications for each patient. Compounding pharmacies use FDA hormones and should be PCAB accredited. Our pharmacy offers convenient pickup and mail order options for clients.
What is Pellet Therapy?
Pellet Therapy is a form of hormone replacement therapy that involves injecting a physical pellet containing hormones under the skin. Currently, KOI does not offer pellet hormone replacement therapy. We offer personalized treatment plans with close monitoring by our Naturopathic doctor to allow for adjustments of hormones as needed. With pellet therapy, dose adjustments are not easily made as pellets are ‘semi-permanent’.

FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Getting to Know Your Hormones:
Estrogen is a hormone present in both men & women, which has over 400 functions in the human body. These include supporting cardiovascular health, blood sugar regulation, cognitive function, maintaining healthy skin, bones and joints, and many more. Imbalances of estrogen in the body can contribute to weight gain, irritability, bloating, PMS symptoms, fatigue, brittle hair, nails and bones, as well as dysfunctions of the immune system.
Testosterone is the principal hormone in men’s reproductive health, and plays a role in women’s health as well. This hormone is important for building muscle mass, increasing energy, supporting metabolism, boosting self-confidence and strengthening libido. It also has a role in cardiovascular and neurologic health. Low testosterone levels can occur for a number of reasons and contribute to weight gain, decreased muscle tone, low endurance, fatigue and increased cholesterol.
Progesterone is an important and often overlooked hormone in both men & women. It balances estrogen, supports moods, helps with stress management and promotes sleep. Progesterone also plays a role in healthy cholesterol and bone density. Progesterone is often low due to stress and can impact libido in both men and women, as well as cause increased irritability and insomnia. In women, low progesterone is often responsible for weight gain, painful menstrual cycles, and migraines.
DHEA is building block hormone of all our other hormones. It helps produce testosterone and estrogen, and provides energy and stamina. Low levels occur with age, chronic stress and various environmental factors. Decline of DHEA contributes to fatigue, weight gain, poor stress management, lack of motivation, and disruption of hormone balance.
