Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Endocrine disorders are disorders related to the body’s endocrine glands. The endocrine system produces hormones, which are chemical signals sent out, or secreted through the bloodstream. Hormones help to regulate body processes such as appetite, breathing, growth, fluid balance, feminization and virilization, and weight control.

The endocrine system consists of several glands, including the pituitary gland and hypothalamus in the brain, adrenal glands in the kidneys, and thyroid in the neck; It also includes organs like the pancreas, ovaries, and testes, as well as the stomach, liver, and intestines, which also secrete hormones related to digestion. The most common endocrine disorders are related to improper functioning of the pancreas and the pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands.

Common endocrine disorders include:

These disorders often have widespread symptoms, affect multiple parts of the body, and can range from mild to severe. Treatment depends on each specific disorder but often focuses on adjusting hormone balance using synthetic hormones.

Aging in men is associated with reduced protein synthesis, decreased lean body mass, decreased bone mass, and increased body fat. Women who go through menopause will notice dramatic changes in skin thickness, texture, hydration, and tightness. Women who stop hormone therapy notice the same disturbing changes. Studies have shown that the loss of thyroid, estrogen, and testosterone hormones is responsible for this detrimental effect on the skin. The only way to treat and prevent changes in skin collagen and elastin and prevent wrinkles is through hormone replacement therapy. Replenishment of hormones to physiological levels (optimal but within normal limits) has been shown to alleviate these age-related changes. By fixing the proper hormonal levels, immunity is restored, and the prevention of future diseases is achievable. Wellness Architects will help you prevent and treat the signs of aging. If you feel better on the inside, you will look better on the outside.


Hormones decline in all people as they age. When hormone levels in a young person are not optimal, doctors offer alternatives to correct them. Still, when the same situation happens to an older adult, the primary care physician may consider it normal (due to aging). No replacement is offered to optimize your hormone levels. We work on correcting and balancing hormone levels to prevent the damage caused by the lack of these in the body.

Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones identical in structure to those found in your body. These natural hormones come from plants and animals and/or are synthetically manufactured. This applies to all hormones, including thyroid hormones, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA. We use optimal ranges to evaluate patient outcomes and, thus, replenish hormone levels as necessary. Prevention is essential since erratic hormone levels may lead to diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, muscular atrophy, and sleep disorders. By restoring adequate hormonal balance, immunity is promoted, consequently preventing conditions associated with aging.

Benefits of BHRT:

We use radiology and laboratory results to diagnose and recommend starting with a program designed only for each patient. In addition to measuring hormones, risk factors are evaluated, such as Cardiac CRP, PSA, DHT, and Homocysteine are evaluated in addition to measuring hormones, among others. Also, work on Insulin, Glucose, and Glycosylated Hemoglobin levels, which are associated with diabetes.
