What Is

Hormone Therapy?








Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy including Testosterone

With modern science we have options when it comes to the aging process

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are identical in their molecular structure to the hormones produced naturally within the human body. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy is also used more generally as the practice of using only Bioidentical Hormones in the treatment of all hormone deficiencies, not just menopause.

One of these conditions is perimenopause, which generally is the time of change leading into menopause.  Another is andropause in adult males which is the name given to the age-related decline that is seen with decreasing testosterone levels.  Thyroid deficiencies can also be treated with bioidentical hormones.  

Hormones control the activity of tissues and cells within your body. Optimized and well- balanced hormones create vitality and an improvement in overall well-being. In both men and women, hormones levels decrease and may cause symptoms like low energy, weight gain, decline of sexual interest, depression, and poor sleep patterns.

The hormones estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, thyroid and DHEA all perform very significant roles in daily functioning. Imbalances in these hormones can impact quality of life and disease occurrence substantially.

Many people have resigned themselves to living with less than optimal quality of life, caused by hormonal imbalances.  The patients and their providers may accept this as an unchangeable and untreatable aspect of the process of getting older. However, there are treatments available to replace hormone levels into optimal ranges of hormones to enhance quality of life and prevent numerous degenerative health problems commonly associated with aging.

Bioidentical Hormones are exactly identical in molecular structure and function to the hormones, which are made in the body.  Many bioidentical hormones are derived from plants, such as yam or soy, and others are synthetically made but still chemically and functionally identical to your own hormones.

Bioidentical Hormones produce the same responses in the body as hormones that are made by the body and have less chances of causing unwanted reactions and effects.  

Each person’s regimen will be tailored to the exact amount of each hormone needed for them to reach optimal levels. Amy Ellingson, M.D. practices in Chelan, Washington and provides Bioidentical Hormone restoration and optimization.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps men and women balance their hormones and reduce the symptoms of hormone decline. So, given that your body, on its own, wasn’t making sufficient hormones, if a patient stops taking their Bioidentical Hormones, the conditions and symptoms that they previously experienced may return.

“Since I have received the BHRT from Dr. Ellingson I have experienced a significant improvement to my life. I am more energetic, sleep better and am able to cope and recover quicker from physical exertion. Another hug benefit is an increased libido. At 54 years-old with many body ailments the BHRT has been a complete success for me. I highly recommend this treatment, especially for men of my age.”

“I started with hormones in my early 40’s when my hormones started changing. I was having hot flashes, depression, moodiness, low energy, insomnia and foggy thinking. I have been on both patches, creams and now on a BHRT regimen with Dr. Ellingson. I now feel vibrant and emotionally balanced. I am sleeping much better than I had for years. I also have much improved vaginal moisture and no pain with intercourse. I also have a family history of Alzheimers in my mother and heart disease in my father and brothers. I feel reassured knowing that this program is helping to reduce my risk. I love it all!”
