Understanding Hormone Therapy: A Comprehensive Guide by Bridge Clinics


Hormone imbalances can significantly affect your quality of life, impacting everything from mood and energy levels to physical health and well-being. At Bridge Clinics, we offer tailored hormone therapy treatments to help restore balance and improve your overall health.

What is Hormone Therapy?

Hormone therapy involves the treatment of symptoms or diseases with synthetic or naturally-derived hormones. When the body produces too little of a particular hormone, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can replenish these levels, maintaining optimal health. Among the various types of HRT, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) stands out as the natural and effective option.

Bioidentical Hormones: These hormones are derived from natural sources and are structurally identical to those produced by the human body. This exact match allows the hormones to integrate seamlessly with the body’s hormone receptors, reducing side effects and increasing treatment effectiveness.

Treatments for Hormone Imbalance

The root cause of hormone imbalance often dictates the course of treatment. In many cases, hormone replacement therapy using natural bioidentical hormones is the best option.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHT) has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment option with fewer side effects compared to non-bioidentical hormone therapies. Additionally, BHT can reduce the risk of certain diseases, including cardiovascular complications and breast cancer.

At Bridge Clinics, we use an integrative approach to diagnose and treat hormone imbalances. Our team provides personalized hormone therapy plans, which may include:

  • Testosterone Therapy: Effective for treating low testosterone in both men and women, impacting weight management, brain function, cardiovascular health, and sexual function.
  • Estrogen Therapy: Essential for women experiencing low estrogen levels, which can cause symptoms like low libido, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, and mood swings.
  • Thyroid Therapy: Addresses thyroid imbalances that can lead to intolerance to temperature changes, unexplained weight fluctuations, and low energy levels.

Functional Medicine and Nutraceutical Supplements

A successful hormone therapy plan goes beyond just hormone replacement. Functional medicine plays a critical role in understanding and treating hormone imbalances. Our practitioners at Bridge Clinics consider your medical history, lifestyle, and personal preferences to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.

Additionally, we offer a range of nutraceutical supplements to support and sustain hormone balance. These pharmaceutical-grade supplements are formulated for maximum absorption, providing essential nutrients that promote metabolic function, hormone health, and overall well-being.
