Benefits of bioidentical hormone therapy
Hormones play a significant role in a person’s body. When levels fall or are not in proper balance, an individual can become fatigued, prone to illness or disinterested in intimate relations with a partner. It does not take an enormous drop to affect a person’s wellness. Even small problems can leave the person feeling run-down and unhealthy.
Fortunately, there are ways to bring hormones to normal levels and help a person feel well. In recent years, patients have turned to bioidentical hormone therapy with Optimal Medical Group. It is not uncommon for people to experience hormonal challenges. Still, it is crucial to find a solution that makes sense and that can help the patient reach their goals.
Adults of any age can suffer low hormone levels, but it is most familiar with older men and women, particularly women who have entered menopause. The severity of these issues can vary from patient to patient. People seek help at Optimal Medical Group to correct some of the following problems:
- Struggles maintaining a healthy weight
- Difficulty sleeping
- Loss of memory
- Hot flashes and night sweats
How it works
People who decide to undergo this treatment are usually seeking a replacement for their body’s production of testosterone, progesterone or estrogen. A drug company or pharmacy will make the hormones in the form of pills, creams, patches, gels or injections.
The hormone replacement methods are designed to mimic the hormones that the body should ordinarily produce on its own. When a person is struggling to get the right level, these replacements can bring the hormones to the correct levels.
When a patient has concerns about health issues, they should speak to Dr. Juan Chavez, MD, or Dr. Lucia Mireles-Chavez, MD. They have the combined knowledge and training to assess the patient’s hormone levels and determine where there may be deficiencies. The patient will undergo a physical, medical examination, and health history questionnaire.
Our team will also conduct tests to confirm whether there are indeed low hormone levels. Based on the test results and the person’s overall health, our team will determine the right treatment and strategy to improve the individual’s wellness.

Another benefit of this treatment is that it has many uses. It can even lower the risk of other health concerns and conditions. Men and women may take hormone replacements to reduce the chances of getting cataracts or developing diabetes. It may also be effective at improving a person’s skin through good hydration and elasticity.
Also, some cancer treatments can lower a woman’s estrogen levels. However, this therapy can provide relief from the symptoms that come with this imbalance.
Possible side effects
As with any treatment, there are potential issues that come from bioidentical hormone therapy. Patients should always discuss the possible side effects with our team to learn if they are candidates for this treatment or not. The person must talk about any concerns or ask questions before undergoing this therapy.
Some of these side effects include acne and bloating. Some women report an increase in body hair, while other people may experience some weight gain or mood swings. Our practitioner will inform people who may not be a good candidate for the replacement.
