Hormone Replacement Doctor
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a form of hormone therapy where the doctor provides hormones, either to supplement lacking hormones, or to substitute new hormones for those that naturally occur in the body.
BHRT or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is similar to HRT, the difference is that the hormones that are supplemented or substituted by a BHRT doctor, are identical at a molecular level to those naturally occurring in the body.
The forms of Hormone Replacement that our doctors at Nouveau Health provide include:
Bioidentical hormones are derivatives of plant extracts structurally indistinguishable from human hormones. Typically, preparations of BHT may include progesterone, estradiol, estriol, DHEA and or testosterone. They are derived from a natural source; soybean or yam, and are bioidentical to human hormones.
Menopause is a natural consequence of aging. Simply put, it is the cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycle known as meno (period) pause (stop). The ovaries produce three main hormones. The loss of these hormones produce variable symptoms in each individual patient as the hormone levels decrease. This process usually begins years before the patients last period.
Andropause or Low Testosterone , is a result of a gradual drop in a man’s ability to produce testosterone. As a man ages, his testosterone level gradually falls. Consequently, men lose the vitality they had when they were younger. Frequently, men complain about losing their drive, they lose interest in sex along with the ability to perform. They gain weight and lose muscle mass.

Formally defined, telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and other forms of telecommunications technology.
