At JumpstartMD, we use proven science to promote health and happiness. As a complement to our proven weight management solution, we now offer a way for you to remain happy, healthy, vigorous, and vital long into the 2nd half of your life by restoring optimal hormone levels for both men and women.
With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), JumpstartMD can restore your hormones to youthful levels, helping to prevent diseases like osteoporosis and heart disease, promote your well-being and address many undesirable symptoms associated with menopause, andropause (Low T Syndrome) and other hormone imbalances.
BHRT is safe and customized to treat your unique needs and specific hormonal imbalances.
What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant-based hormones and exactly match the molecular structure of the hormones in your body that fall during and before menopause and andropause. Because the hormones replicate those you are missing, they can rejuvenate your health and well-being safely and with minimal to no side effects.
BHRT is a therapy in which bioidentical hormones are customized to deliver the right amounts to you based on your unique profile from our testing and analysis.
BHRT can effectively help you with the symptoms of hormone-imbalance.
Both men and women can experience a decline in hormone levels as early as their mid-thirties. Fortunately, your hormone losses and imbalances are correctible using natural, bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) to eliminate or improve many of the following symptoms:
- Low energy and stamina/increased fatigue
- Diminished mental focus / “foggy thinking”
- Memory loss
- Moodiness, loss of motivation and depression
- Insomnia/Sleep disturbance
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Decreased libido
- Loss of muscle tone and mass
- Vaginal atrophy and dryness and erectile dysfunction
- Urinary incontinence
- Body fat and difficulty in weight loss
- Skin and hair thinning
BHRT can also help to prevent diseases:
- Cardiovascular disease (Heart attacks and strokes)
- Cholesterol abnormalities
- Alzheimer’s dementia
BHRT is Customized for You
Through testing and review of your individual health profile, our medical professionals customize bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uniquely designed to raise your levels of essential hormones to optimal levels.
The primary bioidentical hormone levels that we optimize are:
- Estrogen (more specifically estradiol)
In some cases, when appropriate, we also optimize individual thyroid and DHEA levels.
3-6 weeks after your initial treatment, blood levels of your hormones are re-tested to determine if you have achieved optimal levels. Dosing is adjusted accordingly throughout your treatment to achieve optimal results.
BHRT is Safe
Bioidentical hormones exactly match those found in your own body, are administered with scientifically supported physician oversight, and are fine-tuned to achieve optimal levels within a normal physiologic range. As a result, you can experience their benefits safely and with minimal or no side effects.
By contrast, synthetic non-bioidentical hormones, while commonly prescribed, have subtle differences in their chemical structure that lead to a different metabolic footprint in your body. Studies have shown that these differences matter greatly and all too often result in adverse side effects and dangerous downstream consequences. For these reasons, we neither recommend nor use non-bioidentical synthetic hormones.
BHRT is currently available in our Marin, Redwood City, Walnut Creek, Los Gatos, Laurel Heights and Monterey Clinics.
