Bay Area Bioidentical Specialists, Jeffrey Riopelle M.D. and Nurse Donna Riopelle feel that a respect between the patient and doctor is required to help their patients achieve the highest levels of wellbeing and health.
In the past, medicine has been designed to treat people with diseases and has only been able to skim the surface of prevention. However, now doctors can treat individuals early on to help prevent future diseases and help their patients live healthier lives. If a patient is suffering from a pre-existing medical condition or disease, Dr. Jeffrey Riopelle and Nurse Donna Riopelle can often impact those diseases positively through regenerative medicine and cutting edge Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, rather than just suppressing the symptoms, as is often done with conventional prescription medicine treatments.
Inflammation is the cause of over 90% of chronic diseases, and it can start many years before the disease manifests itself. The key to prevention is to determine what the patient’s body lacks early on, and to correct the problem before the symptoms ever begin. Each individual has his or her unique genetic code, and though the genetic code cannot be changed, the environmental factors that lead to diseases can be altered, once the deficiencies that exist are determined. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may be able to get to the root of imbalances and reduce inflammation, which can reduce the risk for age related and chronic diseases.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormones are messengers throughout the body that work to regulate many of the body’s activities. They serve many functions in the human body, which include reproduction, metabolism, energy and heat production, digestion, sexual function, and moods. As aging occurs, the body’s ability to produce hormones can drastically decline, and many women and men may not be able to produce an adequate amount of hormones. Other factors that can adversely affect hormone production include an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, environmental factors, excessive alcohol intake, smoking, and high levels of stress.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help men and women to replenish these deficient hormones with hormones that are identical in molecular and structural function to the hormones produced in the human body. Bioidentical Hormones are synthesized from natural soy or yam products, which makes them different from other forms of hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical Hormones are compounded and dosed to suit the specific needs of each unique patient, and they are highly compatible with the body because they are exact to the body’s hormones.
