Bio Identical Hormone Therapy
Is Bio Identical Hormone Therapy Right For Me?
Our goal at Glo Medical is to help women and men live the best life possible. For many people, middle age is when the body begins to show the wear and tear of the years gone by—signs of aging commonly related to hormonal imbalances. As you age, production of your natural hormones may be impaired. The body may produce too little of one hormone and too much of another. When hormone levels are below normal—and keep in mind that "normal" is different for every person—uncomfortable symptoms appear and unhealthy conditions or diseases may develop. Your quality of life diminishes and you wonder if you can ever reclaim that vibrant, energized person you were just a few short years, or perhaps even, just months, ago. When our hormones are imbalanced we also can become more susceptible to diseases including cancer. However, the human body is resilient, so when you give your body the attention and support it needs, you'll look better and feel better because of it.
At Glo Medical we help you look at the overall picture- Including, adequate levels of sleep, water intake, the right food choices and proper supplements. We do not just want to see you survive, but rather THRIVE!!

There are several options available for treating age management issues with bio-identical hormones. Sharon Higuchi MSN; NP-C can help you determine if including this therapy in your treatment plan will be beneficial to achieving your best life.
Bio identical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and are designed to replicate the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally by our bodies. Based on your hormone levels, Sharon determines the best hormone regimen for you and then has our preferred compounding pharmacy create the pellets. Compounding pharmacies operate under guidelines established by the FDA. Compounded hormones are specifically made by a compounding pharmacist in the exact strength and dosage as prescribed by the attending practitioner. Bioidentical hormones, in most cases, cannot be patented and made into mass prescription forms by large pharmaceutical companies. Instead, doses are carefully determined after an experienced and highly-trained hormone therapy practitioner meets with the patient to review and discuss their medical history, symptoms, lifestyle and lab results. This information ensures that patients get a treatment plan and prescriptions that meet the specific needs of their body. Hormonal balance is not achieved by meeting some ubiquitous standard of normal—balance is reached when optimal function is restored for the individual person.
