Frequently Asked Questions
We try to anticipate questions you might have about our Anti-Aging and Wellness program, including Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, and provide the answers here. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to send an e-mail to info@antiagingweightlossclinic.com
What are Bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are exactly the same hormones, molecule per molecule that your body produces. They originate from plants. Most often made from wild yams and soybeans. They are then slightly modified in a lab to attain the structure identical to the hormones produced by your own body. Use of this type of therapy is preferred by both men and women in dealing with hormonal changes due to aging, menopause and andropause. 
Synthetic hormones are also made in a lab, but most importantly are not identical to your body. Bioidentical hormones are superior to types of synthetic hormones commonly prescribed.
What is the best age to consider Bioidentical hormone therapy?
At Rejuvenation we believe that most people should have their hormones checked by the age of 35 or earlier if they have symptoms of hormonal loss. The way to prevent illness and to optimize one’s health is to take an active role in addressing health care risks before they become a problem.
What are the side effects associated with Bioidentical hormones?
Because Bioidentical hormones are just like the ones made in your body, there are relatively few side effects. Side effects occur mainly when the dosage of hormone is too high for the individual. Rejuvenation monitors and evaluates each patient consistently to assure balanced dosage.
How long until I see results using Bioidentical hormones?
While it varies with each person, and depends on which hormone therapy you are using, generally you can expect to see results within three to six months.
Do I need to take these hormones forever?
No. If you decide to stop, your body will simply return to where it was before starting hormone therapy.
Why does a woman need hormones during and after menopause?
No matter what your age, if your female hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) are unbalanced, you may suffer ill effects such as hot flashes, night sweats, depression, vaginal dryness, fatigue, and weight gain.
Why does a man need testosterone replacement?
As a man gets older, his testosterone declines. Testosterone is the hormone that maintains a man’s mental focus, his energy, his metabolism, and his muscles, as well as keeps fat off and maintains strong bones. There is often concern that testosterone therapy may cause prostate cancer. The majority of the medical literature does not support this claim and your physician’s close medical supervision takes these risks into account depending on each individual’s personal health history.
Will this treatment interfere with my currently prescribed medications?
Generally not. Some medicines may actually be reduced or no longer needed.
What is personalized prescription?
With traditional synthetic hormone replacement therapy, there are few options for adjustment of strength and dosage. In light of the fact that each woman is unique her prescriptions should also be unique according to her need.
What does rejuvenation recommend to HRT (hormone replacement therapy) users?
Rejuvenation would like to caution everyone about the risks of synthetic HRT. We believe it should be a last resort, not a first choice. In general, we recommend that everyone first try a natural approach such as the Rejuvenation Personal Program or any other program of your choice which offers natural alternatives. The Weaning off from synthetic HRT should be gradual,
HRT = Synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy
BioHRT= Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What are the symptoms of perimenopause?
The most common symptoms of perimenopause are hot flashes, insomnia, fatigue, irritability or mood swings, unusual weight gain, irregular periods, anxiety, feelings of depression, fuzzy thinking, bloating or gas, headaches, joint pain or stiffness, vaginal dryness, diminished sexual desire, and leaking of urine.
Can I use any compounding pharmacy?
Our patients’ prescriptions are filled by a compounding pharmacy. A compounding pharmacy custom mixes and makes your prescription as it is ordered. At this time, we use a pharmacy that our doctor trusts. Our doctor knows that this pharmacy only uses fresh, pure and accurate ingredients for your prescriptions. He thinks it’s like making cookie dough….The quality of the dough is determined by the quality of the ingredients. It doesn’t cost you anymore to use this pharmacy and your prescriptions are delivered to you by overnight mail.
We are better able to manage your hormone levels with precise accuracy if all medications come from the same pharmacy. Bioidentical hormone modulation is very different from prescribing "one-size-fits-all" drugs like Premarin. Every treatment regimen is custom-tailored to the individual based on the results of blood tests, medical history, physical exam, and symptoms presented. With compounded medications, hormone powders are mixed with a cream base or loaded into capsules. There are many variables such as the absorption level of the cream base. By standardizing with one pharmacy (as with one diagnostic lab), we are better able to predict a patient's response to a certain dosage and properly adjust the dosage in response to symptoms. If a patient obtains their hormones or supplements elsewhere, we can never be sure exactly what they are taking.
I recently came to know about NIH study of HRT risks? What shall I do?
Rejuvenation can only recommend you a natural approach to hormonal balance. The hormones used in HRT studies were synthetic estrogen and progestin’s not natural Bioidentical estrogen and progesterone. We believe that synthetic hormones commonly used in hormone replacement therapy should be a last resort, not a first choice. However, this is a matter of personal choice.
