If you are regularly experiencing fatigue, high stress, low sex drive and uncontrollable weight gain, you may be suffering from hormonal imbalance. At Illuminate Wellness we offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy managed by our triple board certified primary care physician, Dr. Luciano Del Toro. This process begins with an in-depth health assessment and physical exam by Dr. Del Toro, including blood work. With this information, the doctor will then determine whether you are a candidate for bioidentical hormone treatment.
WHAT IS BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY?
Hormones control most of our basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the human body. Hormones coordinate everything from digestion and growth to appetite, immune function, mood and libido.
When our hormones are out of balance (even slightly) it can have a significant negative impact on our health and well-being. Often, when people’s hormones drop or become unbalanced, they turn to hormone replacement therapies to ease symptoms. The goal of bioidentical hormone treatment is to address many physical and mental symptoms including weight gain, fatigue, depression and heart disease.
