Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a medical treatment that involves the use of hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones produced by the human body. These hormones can include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. BHRT is often used to address hormonal imbalances that may occur during menopause or as a result of aging. There are also instances where clients in the perimenopausal (pre-menopause) period may need assistance.  Younger clients with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) also suffer from hormonal imbalances and sometimes can benefit from BHRT.


Here are some key points about bio-identical hormone replacement therapy:


Hormones Used:

Estrogen: Bio-identical estrogen may be prescribed to relieve symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness in menopausal women.


Progesterone: This hormone is often prescribed in combination with estrogen to balance hormone levels and reduce the risk of endometrial cancer in women with an intact uterus.

Testosterone: BHRT with testosterone may be used to address symptoms of low testosterone in both men and women.



 One of the distinguishing features of BHRT is the customization of hormone prescriptions based on individual hormone levels. Compounded pharmacies may create personalized formulations to meet specific patient needs. One of the benefits is being able to use other integrative methods in conjunction with BHRT to meet you unique needs.


Routes of Administration:


BHRT can be administered in various forms, including creams, gels, injections, patches, pills, or pellets implanted under the skin. The choice of administration depends on individual preferences and medical considerations.

Controversy and Debate:


The use of bio-identical hormones has been a topic of debate in the medical community. Some argue that they are safer and more effective than synthetic hormones, while others contend that more research is needed to establish their safety and efficacy.

Consultation with Healthcare Providers:



Before starting BHRT, individuals should consult with their healthcare providers. A thorough evaluation of hormone levels, medical history, and potential risks and benefits is essential to determine if BHRT is appropriate for you. At Optimal Healing Center & Medspa you can expect to have this type of approach at your consult.

It’s important to note that the regulatory status and availability of bio-identical hormones may vary by region, and healthcare providers will consider individual health factors when prescribing such treatments.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light (laser) to remove unwanted hair in specific body areas.

During laser hair removal, the light that is transmitted is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is then converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage prevents or delays future hair growth.

At Optimal Healing Center & Medspa, we utilize the Venus Epileve which is safe for all skin types.

The Procedure is relatively painless and will be more effective than waxing long term. Laser Hair removal generally requires at least six treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Please call the office to schedule a consult if you are interested in obtaining laser hair removal. Our team of experts are looking forward to serving you.

Medical Weight Loss

Medical weight loss involves a comprehensive and personalized approach to achieving weight management goals under the guidance of medical professionals. Through a combination of evidence-based strategies, including tailored meal plans, exercise regimens, behavior modification techniques, and, when necessary, medication, medical weight loss programs aim to address the underlying factors contributing to weight gain and promote long-term success. With the support and expertise of qualified healthcare providers, individuals can embark on a safe and effective journey towards sustainable weight loss and improved overall health.

Body Contouring

Body contouring refers to a range of non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures designed to sculpt and reshape the body's contours. Through innovative techniques such as laser therapy, radiofrequency, ultrasound, or cryolipolysis (fat freezing), body contouring treatments target specific areas of concern to reduce stubborn fat deposits, tighten sagging skin, and improve overall body shape. With minimal downtime and lasting results, body contouring can help individuals achieve a more toned, defined physique and enhance their self-confidence.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a cutting-edge regenerative treatment that utilizes the body's own healing potential. By extracting a concentrated solution of platelets from the patient's blood, PRP therapy stimulates tissue repair and regeneration. The platelets contain growth factors and other bioactive substances that promote cellular growth, collagen production, and tissue rejuvenation. PRP therapy is commonly used in various fields, including aesthetics, orthopedics, and dermatology, to address issues such as hair loss, skin rejuvenation, and joint injuries. With its natural and non-invasive approach, PRP therapy offers a safe and effective solution for promoting healing and restoring vitality.
