Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy

Thyroid hormone replacement therapy addresses problems with circulation and nutrition. Many people are well aware of the challenges of thyroid dysfunction. An imbalance in thyroid hormones in one’s body can trigger a wide range of side effects that include:

  • Bloating throughout the body
  • Dry hair and skin
  • Poor circulation
  • Numbness in extremities
  • Problems with concentration and memory
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Unnatural feelings of tiredness, especially when waking up
  • Painful and stiff joints

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) helps patients who need to partially or completely replace the function of the thyroid, as well as patients who need to prevent the recurrence of thyroid cancer. Hypothyroidism is the most common reason why people enter into bioidentical thyroid hormone replacement therapy.

Simply put, the thyroid hormone is intrinsic to the entire functioning of the body. Talk with your doctor and have your thyroid levels checked if you feel that there is an imbalance. We’ll work with you and your physician to compound the hormone replacement that will restore or reduce your levels to optimal performance, leaving you healthy, happy, and well-balanced.
