Hormone Optimization

Achieve optimal health with our bio-identical hormone therapy program.

Hormones play a crucial role in maintaining the proper functioning of our body. They are chemical messengers that travel through the bloodstream and control various bodily functions such as metabolism, mood, growth, and sexual development. However, with age and environmental factors, the production and balance of hormones can become disrupted. This can lead to various undesirable health issues, including weight gain, fatigue, depression, and sexual dysfunction.

To combat these problems and improve overall health and well-being, hormone optimization has emerged as a popular solution. It involves restoring hormonal balance through medical interventions to enhance the body’s performance.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are structurally identical to those naturally produced by the body.


As we age, the production of hormones by our glands declines. In women, this usually occurs during menopause while in men it is known as andropause. Environmental factors such as stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, and exposure to toxins can also affect hormone levels.

Hormonal imbalances can also be caused by medical conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). These conditions can lead to an excess or deficiency of certain hormones, causing a disruption in the body’s natural equilibrium.

There are many symptoms of hormone imbalance, some of which include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Hot flashes/night sweats
  • Mood swings/anxiety/depression
  • Irritability
  • Memory loss
  • Muscle weakness/joint pain
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Vaginal dryness
  • And more!


Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is a natural way to treat hormone imbalances and restore balance. BHRT uses hormones that are identical to the ones your body produces, which makes them more easily accepted and utilized by your body. This type of therapy can be used to treat conditions such as menopause, andropause, PMS, and more. Bio-identical hormone therapy can provide many benefits, including relief from symptoms, improved mood and sleep, and more. This helps to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of hormone imbalance, and can help you feel like yourself again.

There are many different types of BHRT, depending on your needs.

  • Estrogen Therapy: This can be used to treat symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness.
  • Testosterone Therapy: This can be used to treat symptoms of andropause, such as low libido and fatigue.
  • Progesterone Therapy: This can be used to treat symptoms of PMS and menopause, such as mood swings and irritability.
  • Thyroid Hormone Therapy: This can be used to treat an underactive thyroid, which can cause fatigue and weight gain.
  • DHEA:  This can be used to treat adrenal fatigue, which can cause fatigue and low libido.
  • Pregnenolone: This can be used to treat menopause and adrenal fatigue, which can cause fatigue and memory loss.

There are many benefits of bio-identical hormone therapy, including:

  • Relief from symptoms: This can help to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of hormone imbalance, such as hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, weight gain, and more.
  • Improved mood and sleep: This can help you feel more like yourself again by improving your mood and sleep patterns.
  • Increased sex drive: This can help to increase your libido and improve your sexual function.
  • Greater sense of well-being: This can help you feel better overall, both physically and emotionally.
  • Improved fertility: This can help to improve your chances of conceiving if you are struggling with infertility.
  • Reduced risk of heart disease: This can help to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other health problems.
  • Osteoporosis prevention: This can help to prevent or delay the onset of osteoporosis.

One of the most popular types of BHRT is pellet therapy.

Pellet therapy uses hormones that are inserted under the skin, where they release small amounts of hormone over time. This provides a steady, consistent level of hormone, which can help to reduce or eliminate symptoms. Pellet therapy can last for up to 6 months, and can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions.

At the Institute for Human Optimization, we offer BHRT in a variety of forms including creams, rapid dissolvable tablets, and injections.


If you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, hormone therapy may be right for you. The best way to find out is to come in for a consultation with one of our providers. 

At the Institute for Human Optimization, we believe in treating the root cause of hormone imbalance, not just the symptoms. This means finding and addressing the underlying causes of your imbalance, such as adrenal fatigue, thyroid dysfunction, and more. That’s why we offer comprehensive hormone testing, review your medical history, and work with you to find the underlying cause of your condition. We then create a personalized treatment plan to address the root cause to help you achieve optimal health. This often includes a combination of hormone therapy, lifestyle changes, and supplements.
