We suggest hormone optimization therapy is “for you” because of aging. We all do it! No one has found a cure for it yet. But just because you’re aging doesn’t mean you have to suffer from its effects.

For instance, what if you could

  • Feel younger?
  • Have the ambition you had as a twenty-something?
  • Feel stronger and more confident again?
  • Reverse the signs of aging?
  • Feel rested and reenergized?
  • Feel like yourself again?

Here’s some fantastic news…you can!

And the reason you can is it’s all about hormones, baby! Did you think that puberty or pregnancy was the last time you were going to have to deal with fluctuating hormones? If you did, we’re sorry to tell you that you are wrong.

How to Balance Hormones Naturally 

Hormones are like a communications system for your whole body: systems, organs, tissues, and cells. Hormone levels naturally ebb and flow, but in some instances a persistent hormone imbalance can occur. Hormone imbalance may show up in your life as

  • increased anxiety
  • mood swings
  • depression
  • loss of concentration
  • memory problems
  • difficulty sleeping
  • low sex drive
  • loss of muscle strength and lean muscle
  • weight gain

And as if suffering from one of these symptoms isn’t enough, combine two or more of them, and your life can become unmanageable. In addition, your quality of life can take a huge hit as you age. But it doesn’t have to be like that.

The reason for that is that many hormones can be replaced using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) which will bring your hormone levels back into balance.

But why stop there? Why not take it to the next level with hormone optimization therapy?

Myth: Hormone changes only happen to midlife women.

Fact: Perimenopausal and menopausal women aren’t the only ones who suffer hormone imbalances. The male body begins decreasing testosterone production by 1% per year after age 30.

What is BHRT?

The goal of hormone optimization therapy is to restore certain hormones back up to optimal levels. By doing so, many of the symptoms of aging will be relieved. We use bioidentical hormones to do hormone optimization.

What is BHRT Therapy?

We’re glad you asked. Bio-identical hormones are identical in structure and function to the hormones naturally produced by your body. This means that they are an exact match to the receptors in your body – you don’t want to try to fit a square peg in a round hole. That’s not effective, especially when the peg is being used to communicate important information between multiple systems in your body, which hormones do.

First off, bio-identical hormones are different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT). As we shared earlier, they’re identical in their makeup to the natural hormones your body produces. They come from natural plant-based sources like yams and soy.

The hormones used in HRT, however, are not an exact match to the ones produced by your body, so they don’t quite fit into the receptors, which means your body may get some mixed messages. These hormones also derive from the urine of pregnant horses and other kinds of synthetic hormones.

Because bio-identical hormones come from plants and are identical in structure, they’re more effective and safer than the synthetic hormones used in traditional hormone replacement therapy. According to a report produced for the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health:

“Physiological data and clinical outcomes demonstrate that bioidentical hormones are associated with lower risks, including the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease, and are more effective than their synthetic and animal-derived counterparts. Until evidence is found to the contrary, bioidentical hormones remain the preferred method of HRT.”

Myth: All BHRT doctors’ treatments are the same.

Fact: The beauty of BHRT is that it can be customized to treat your individual needs – we call this optimization therapy. A good BHRT provider doesn’t use a “one size fits all” approach.

How to Treat Hormonal Imbalance?

Our BHRT doctors use the delivery method and dosage best suited to your specific needs based on you serum levels and lifestyle. Since our goal is to achieve optimal results, they often combine Nava’s BHRT program with exclusive hormone supplements, Adrenal Recharge therapy, and Thyroid Balance programs to heal the root cause of your hormone imbalance.

With Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, you can enjoy:

  • Improved concentration and focus
  • Increased muscle strength and mass
  • Increased sexual libido
  • Lower cholesterol levels
  • Increased energy, stamina, and endurance

Who doesn’t want that?
