Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy in Dallas

Hormone Therapy for Men and Women

Dallas Anti-Aging Institute provides hormone therapy for men and women. Hormone treatments and treatment alternatives can help increase energy, increase sex drive, and produce a number of other benefits by creating hormonal balance. Hormone balance is a crucial part of what keeps our bodies healthy and fit as we age. Treatments are necessary in cases of hormone imbalance, which can arise from a number of medical conditions, including the natural effect of aging.

No matter the cause, hormonal balance can be rebuilt through Hormone Replacement Therapy, or HRT. Dallas Anti-Aging Institute strongly recommends the gold-standard treatment option: Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. The hormones we prescribe are bio- identical or natural, meaning that the supplemented hormones are chemically identical to those your body produces. Bio-identical also means the hormones in the product come from plant sources. They are not animal-based or synthesized in a lab.

How Do I Know If I Need HRT?

The simplest, easiest way to check your hormone levels is through a blood test. We can draw your blood right in our office to get you started. Our doctors then review the results and write a treatment plan customized to your needs if hormone replacement is needed.

Hormones We Can Supplement

  • Cortisol*
    Sometimes referred to as the stress hormone because it influences and regulates how the body responds to stress, low cortisol is also a common issue with those suffering from digestion problems, fatigue, chronic inflammation, low blood sugar and low blood pressure.
  • DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone)
    This hormone is produced by your body's adrenal glands. It has a role in helping the body to naturally produce testosterone and estrogen. DHEA helps build muscle, fights the effects of aging and can be used to improve sex drive.
  • Estrogen
    Estrogen therapy is an effective treatment for relief of hot flashes and night sweats in women. It can also be used to treat the vaginal symptoms of menopause, including dryness, burning, itching, and discomfort during intercourse. This is a common treatment for women dealing with various menopause symptoms. Estrogen supplement therapy can also decrease a woman’s risk of osteoporosis.
  • GHRP*
    Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide stimulates the pituitary gland to make and release more Human Growth Hormone, contributing to greater energy, fat loss, lower blood pressure, higher testosterone levels, hair regrowth, and enhanced sexual performance.
  • HGH Booster
    HGH Booster stimulates the secretion of growth hormones to build muscle while reducing fat. Patients report increased energy levels, muscle growth, decreased body fat and deeper more restful
  • Melatonin
    This promotes restful sleep and is a powerful antioxidant. Natural levels of melatonin in the body decline with age. Treatment promotes anti-aging in general, aids antioxidant protection, and sleep. Recent studies also indicate that melatonin may lessen the effects of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
  • Micronized Progesterone
    Often used in conjunction with estrogen in the treatment of post-menopausal women, benefits include bone building and fat burning, protection against osteoporosis, improved PMS symptoms, protection against endometrial and breast cancers, and maintained levels of natural sexual desire.
  • Oxytocin
    Also known as the “love hormone,” oxytocin is reported to enhance libido, arousal, and sexual climax in both men and women. Patients report improved love life.
  • Pregnenolone
    This hormone is used to treat the symptoms of menopause and PMS. It can also be can be used to slow or reduce the effects of aging and in the treatment of arthritis and depression.
  • Testosterone
    Testosterone levels in men declines about 1% a year after the age of 30. Treatment increases energy, builds muscle mass, promotes bone density, and increases sex drive. Women need small amounts as part of the hormones that keep mood, energy levels, sex drive, and bodily functions working well.
  • Thyroid Hormone
    Thyroid levels often decline naturally with age and can often go undiagnosed. Even a small decline in this important hormone over an extended period of time can lead to profound consequences for health and longevity. Low thyroid levels occur more often in women over 40. Treatment helps regulate mood and weight.

* Bio-identical forms of Cortisol and GHRP are not presently available.

Treatment Alternatives

Hormone therapy is available in several forms including: creams, gels, weekly injections and the pellet option. While the weekly injections are the most typical form of treatment, many of our patients are moving toward the pellet option that provides a steady release of the prescribed hormones on a consistent basis over 3-4 months. The pellet option is the trouble-free, reliable, long-term option for those who wish to avoid the daily mess and transfer hazard of creams and gels, and without the need for weekly Dr visits necessary for the injection method.

What Is Pellet Therapy?

Natural hormone pellet therapy is a painless, minor surgical procedure that involves inserting small hormone pellets, each about as big as a grain of rice, beneath the skin. These pellets release hormones consistently over time until at last dissolving completely, which usually happens about 4 months after the procedure. Treatment sessions last about 15 to 20 minutes and occur between 3 and 4 times a year instead of the typical weekly injections. Our licensed physicians and nurse practitioners at the Dallas Anti-Aging Institute perform this procedure for our patients.

These pellets are natural and plant-based, made from wild yam and soy. They are also bio-identical: They match your body's molecular structure perfectly. Our physicians use your individual lab results to create a customized treatment plan. These hormone pellets begin to take effect within 48 to 72 hours, and then over time, the hormones are released little by little depending on your activity level, thus mimicking the body's natural behavior.
