what is Hormone Balancing?

Hormones play a key role in our overall health. Basically, your body’s hormones serve as a special communications system between all the cells in your body. They regulate everything! Your digestion, growth, appetite, immune system — even your mood and libido are controlled by your hormones.  Sometimes our hormone levels drop, or they fall out of balance. That’s where hormone replacement therapy comes in.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) helps men and women who are struggling with abnormal hormone levels. Bioidentical hormones are just what they sound like. They are biologically, structurally, and chemically identical to the body’s natural hormones. This makes them a natural and safe choice for hormone balancing. BHRT can greatly ease the symptoms experienced when hormones are low or irregular. To learn more, call Boston Direct Health in Boston, MA to schedule a consultation with primary care physician Dr. Steven Zivich.

How does Hormone Balancing work?

Dr. Zivich will perform a thorough medical exam, order lab work, and take his time to discuss your health history to identify hormonal imbalances and deficiencies. He doesn't believe in treating symptoms one by one with pills, sedatives, steroids, and the like. Instead, he believes in taking a holistic approach to correct hormonal abnormalities. Dr. Zivich looks at the whole picture. He will evaluate all your medications and how they interact together, go over your diet, and discuss your daily routine. He'll also consider your stress level and mental well-being. From there, he'll discuss supplementations with bioidentical hormones. Hormone therapies come in different forms, including oral medications and injections.
