Bioidentical Hormones

Correct Age-Related Hormone Fluctuations with a Simple Bioidentical Hormone Treatment!

Bioidentical hormones are one of the cornerstones of our practice’s age management programs. These programs aim to promote health and wellness in both men and women by addressing many of the biological causes of the negative side effects of aging. These hormones are typically prescribed after a patient has completed a comprehensive hormone assessment. We offer our patients bioidentical hormones in oral, injectable, cream, and pellet forms.

Better Life is proud to provide patients in the Charleston and Charlotte areas with a broad range of services that can help them look and feel their best at any age.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are a safer, biologically accurate alternative to other methods of hormone therapy. Traditional methods of hormone therapy use hormones derived from animals, plants, or mineral sources. While these hormones technically have “natural” origins, their chemical composition is significantly different than hormones produced by the human body.

While bioidentical hormones are created artificially, they are molecularly identical to human hormones. Because they have a molecular structure that is identical to hormones produced by the body, the body can’t distinguish them from hormones it has produced.

What Types of Bioidentical Hormones do we Offer?

At Better Life, we offer our patients a few different ways to take bioidentical hormones. Sometimes patients choose the method that is most convenient for them and their unique lifestyles; other times, a specific delivery method is recommended by one of our doctors based on that patient’s state of health. Bioidentical hormones can be injected into the body, applied topically, or administered in a slow release pellet that is implanted underneath the skin. Our practice also offers patients the option of taking their hormones orally when appropriate.

What are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are one of the most important components of our practice’s age management treatment plans. This is because a great deal of the decline associated with aging in both men and women has to do with fluctuations in hormone levels. HRT  in Charleston.
