Hormones & Medical assisted addiction therapy Q&AWhat causes hormone imbalances?

Hormone imbalances can start as early as our teenage years but are more common around our mid-thirties, which can then progress into menopause and andropause (male menopause). Environmental influences, emotional health factors, dietary habits, nutrition status, exercise habits, nicotine use, alcohol consumption and our own liver detoxification abilities are all important factors that can positively or negatively impact our hormone balance.



Here are a few  Hormones & Testosterone treatment Q&A

If you are experiencing these symptoms, what is the next step?

If you are reading through these Hormones & Testosterone treatment Q&A and want to know more, Our office provides a free consultation with an experienced staff member to discuss your symptoms and answer your questions. If you decide you want further evaluation, blood work can be drawn that day for an additional cost. This cost will include a return visit to meet with the Nurse Practitioner to review your labs and develop a personalized treatment plan for you.

What kind of personalized treatment would be provided?

Your personalized plan would include bio-identical hormones in the form of creams, injectables, pellets or capsules. These are dosed and compounded according to your needs.


What are bio-identical hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are hormones that have the same molecular structure as the hormones that our bodies produce. These are not to be confused with “natural” hormones. Bio-identical hormones have been scientifically proven to have fewer side effects than pharmaceutically produce hormones. The added benefit of bio-identical hormones is that each dose is tailored specifically for your needs, not simply what doses the pharmaceutical company offers (as is the case with synthetic hormones.)


What are the ingredients of bio-identical hormones?

Bio-identical hormones are hormones derived from plants, such as soy or wild yams, and are designed to be structurally identical to the hormones produced naturally inside the human body. Additional ingredients in each prescription vary by hormone – Testosterone treatment, estrogen, and progesterone.

How long until I see results using bio-identical hormones?

Most patients begin feeling better within a few months of beginning the program, but some results may take a bit longer to achieve. You may begin to feel a difference within a matter of weeks, especially when it comes to sleep patterns and energy levels. Every patient has a different experience, but the end result is the same – a healthier, balanced life.


Changes like these take time to evolve. Remember, it took some time for you to lose balance of your hormones, so it will take your body some time to recover. Consistency and compliance every step of the way will improve your results.

    • Hi & thank you for visiting our site.
      Poison ivy rash is caused by an oily resin called urushiol — found in the leaves, stems and roots of poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac. Urushiol is very sticky, so it easily attaches to your skin, clothing, tools, equipment or pet’s fur. You can get a poison ivy reaction from:

      Direct touch. If you directly touch the leaves, stem, roots or berries of the plant, you may have a reaction.
      Touching contaminated objects. If you walk through some poison ivy and then later touch your shoes, you may get some urushiol on your hands, which you may then transfer to your face by touching or rubbing. If the contaminated object isn’t cleaned, the urushiol on it can still cause a skin reaction years later.
      Inhaling smoke from the burning plants. Even the smoke from burning poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac contains the oil and can irritate or harm your nasal passages or lungs.
      A poison ivy rash itself isn’t contagious. Blister fluid doesn’t contain urushiol and won’t spread the rash. In addition, you can’t get poison ivy from another person unless you’ve had contact with urushiol that’s still on that person or on his or her clothing.

      Hope this helps.
      All the best!
