Hormone Replacement Therapy Benefits

Bioidentical hormones are formulated from natural plant sources, such as yams, and are made to exactly match the molecular structure of hormones present in your body. These hormones bind to your body’s hormone receptors in the exact same way as the hormones produced naturally by your body. The dosage can be more tailored to each individual to achieve optimal levels.

Based on the results of your in-depth self-assessment and comprehensive wellness diagnostics, your Nava practitioner may determine that BHRT is the best way to help you address the side effects resulting from menopause in women, or a testosterone imbalance in men.

Nava’s BHRT doctors can use the delivery method that is best suited to your specific needs. In order to achieve better results, Nava’s BHRT program is often paired with our exclusive hormone supplements.

During menopause, many women experience sleep issues, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, and low sex drive. At Nava, we have developed a strategy that can help address these conditions by restoring hormone levels that have become depleted or imbalanced due to menopause or an underlying health condition. By thoroughly evaluating overall hormone function, a Nava bioidentical hormone physician can assess the source of hormone imbalance or deficiency—essential information to know before making any recommendation.

Nava’s Hormone Optimization Therapy is unique in that it is not simply limited to Bioidentical Hormones (for safe and optimal hormone optimization), but also provides Adrenal Recharge therapy and Thyroid Balance programs. Nava’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, as administered by a Nava practitioner, may be able to help you recapture the balance and energy of youth, instead of settling for the effects of aging.

BHRT for PMS and Estrogen Dominance

Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), or estrogen dominance, is a separate condition that afflicts millions of women, but is typically viewed as normal. Estrogen dominance occurs when there is too much estrogen in relation to progesterone at certain stages of the menstrual cycle. Both diet and excess body fat can contribute to estrogen levels irrespective of what the ovaries secrete. This can lead to hormone imbalance.

Nava practitioners may address estrogen dominance through a medically-supervised weight loss program, liver support, as well as bioidentical progesterone in a capsule form. In addition to hormone therapy, Nava’s bioidentical hormone replacement therapy doctors use an integrative approach for balancing hormone levels, which may include weight loss, acupuncture, blood sugar maintenance, thyroid support, and stress reduction.

BHRT for Men | Male Menopause (Andropause) / Low T

Many men experience a condition similar to menopause called andropause; though it may begin at a much younger age than menopause in women. With increased awareness surrounding this common condition, the popularity of male hormone replacement and testosterone therapy has grown rapidly in recent times.

As the testosterone levels in the body decrease, there are many functions that start to decline. These conditions are not limited to sex drive and erections. Low testosterone can have a direct impact on mood, energy, blood sugar, and sleep, as well as a host of other issues. Thus, optimizing testosterone levels is a very advantageous way to enhance your overall health.

Our medical staff will perform appropriate testing and follow blood levels closely to ensure the safety of any recommended hormone imbalance treatment. You can rest assured that our testosterone therapies include ongoing support, careful monitoring, and advanced diagnostics.
