Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

As we age, our hormones naturally start to decline, which can lead to many unwanted symptoms and a gradual decline in health for both men and women.

With our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program, Dr. Horner can optimize your hormone levels to give you the best opportunity for a healthier and more vigorous life.

What hormones are measured and how?

Various hormones are measured depending on the individual. These hormones include:

  • Thyroid
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • DHEA
  • Testosterone
  • Cortisol (stress hormone)

We use blood testing, saliva testing, and/or urine testing to develop an individualized health plan just for you!

What is anti-aging medicine?

Aging is commonly associated with declining health and chronic diseases such as heart disease, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.

No one can stop the aging process but, through simple lifestyle changes, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and nutritional supplements, you can experience a more successful aging process.
