Are you a candidate for Bioidentical Hormones?
Symptoms we consider to determine whether Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is right for you:
Symptoms in men that may indicate the need for Testosterone Replacement 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 that are prescribed oral hormone medication.
What is Pellet Therapy?
Bio-identical pellet hormone replacement therapy is the delivery of hormone replacement via pellet placed under the skin. Data supports this as the safest and most effective method of hormone replacement therapy.
Pellets are placed just below the skin in a simple 15 minute procedure at our KOI Wellbeing offices. You can return to your day and will experience no more pain than if you were given an injection.
Pellets last 3 to 5 months so you never have to worry about calling in a prescription and waiting for the pharmacist to refill what you need.
You never have to remember to take your medication or be concerned with bringing your medication when traveling, and there is zero chance of exposing those around you to potentially harmful hormones .
Best of all, you will always be in perfect balance and feeling great because pellets deliver a perfect dose of what the body needs, every day. Think of it like a reservoir. The hormones are always there and when your body needs them it can go to the reservoir and fill up like one would fill a glass of water when thirsty. When the body is in balance there is no unnecessary dose causing an imbalance at the other end of the spectrum. And with pellets you’ll begin to feel the positive effects of being in balance and optimized within two days.

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.
The KOI approach for Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
During a free initial consultation your practitioner will discuss your symptoms health history & concerns and determine whether you may be a candidate for Bioidentical Hormones (which may be pills and creams) or Pellet Hormone Therapy.
If your practitioner determines that your symptoms and concerns are related to hormone imbalance he or she will order our advanced lab testing package ($289) and schedule your follow-up appointment. A KOI team member will perform a blood draw that same day. Results are back in just 48 hours so you can see the doctor just days after your initial consultation.
During your follow-up visit your practitioner will review lab results with you and make suggestions for treatment. If Bioidentical Hormones are recommended you can have sign up for our Annual Bioidentical Pellet Hormone Therapy Package and be treated that same day. If you elect creams and Bioidentical pills the doctor will call in your prescription right away.
With pellets you should be feeling great within two days. If you are prescribed bioidentical hormone pills and creams it’ll take about two weeks to feel the effects. Your practitioner will want to monitor your hormone and thyroid levels so once prescribed a KOI team member will schedule follow-up appointment and lab testing three months after your first pellet treatment or prescription.
We invite you to get to the root cause of your symptoms and find your highest expression of health. You deserve it!
