Bioidentical Hormones will Make You Feel Better the Natural Way!

Are you feeling tired, experiencing low sex drive, hot flashes or poor sleep?

Your hormones may be off. Dr. Anthony Capasso M.D. and Ana Linares Stauch A.R.N.P are bioidentical hormone experts, and over the last 20 yrs, they have been prescribing bioidentical hormone replacement therapies to help patients with hormone imbalances allowing them to reclaim their well-being by restoring and balancing their hormones to youthful levels. The bioidentical hormones we prescribe come in different forms including topical creams and pellets.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones  are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as soy or yams and are designed to be” identical” or to replicate the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally by our bodies. They include the estrogen hormones estradiol and estriol along with testosterone and progesterone. Your body recognizes the bioidentical hormones from these plants extracts exactly like they would the hormones produced from your testes or ovaries so there are less side effects and easier for you body to manage.

We individually tailor your bioidentical hormone regimen based on your symptoms and on your hormone levels, through  specialized compounding pharmacy’s. They come in many forms: creams, gels, sub-lingual, solutions, injectables and pellets. In our clinic, your regimen is designed  specifically for your bodies needs which may be different from someone else. The form of bioidentical hormones can play a role in its absorption, side effects and efficacy. The body does a better job if the bioidentical hormones placed under the skin in a pellet. We prescribe all forms based on your individual wants and needs.

Are they FDA approved?

Custom compounded mixtures of bioidentical hormones are not approved by the FDA because they are naturally synthesized from a  plant sources (yams and soy) and the molecules have not been changed and thus considered “natural”. The pharmaceutical companies cannot patent any natural plant chemicals, however chemicals that are altered in molecular structure can be patented. The pharmaceutical companies make synthetic hormones such as Premarin, Provera and Prempro so they can patent them and profit from their sale.  They are approved by the FDA because they are they have been studied at a fixed dose. Multiple studies have shown an increased risk of side effects and cancer with synthetic hormones. In contrast, there is overwhelming body of evidence that supports bioidentical hormones are safer and have less side effects than synthetic hormones replacement. Any hormone replacement can cause adverse reactions. Bioidentical hormones offer you the opportunity to have your hormones specifically tailored for you and titrated to the level you feel good.
