Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

BHRT near me in Highland Park, IL

You deserve to live life at its fullest.

At Perlis MedSpa and Wellness in Highland Park, we are dedicated to treating the whole you. When it comes to our bodies, there is a natural aging process that happens over time. It’s inevitable! But that doesn’t mean you have to suffer through your 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond.

You deserve to feel well from the inside out. That’s why one of our primary offerings at Perlis is natural hormone therapy, or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). The list of benefits of BHRT is long and exciting, and can even be totally life-changing for those with severe symptoms and concerns!

How it works

Hormone replacement therapy, which includes thyroid therapy, is a great all-natural alternative to other traditional therapies. These therapies typically do not fully address both the symptoms and the causes of patient conditions.

Perlis MedSpa and Wellness wants you to live your best quality of life, regardless of age. We administer BHRT through topical creams that introduce new hormones into your body. These hormones help improve symptoms within even a month or two of treatment. This controlled process allows our staff to proactively monitor your hormone levels and make adjustments. We’ll also make continued recommendations for lifestyle changes, to help achieve your ultimate goals.

The process for getting started with BHRT in Highland Park starts by scheduling a lab test and an appointment 2 weeks after the labs are conducted. (We can complete these labs in our office!) The blood test results will include detailed hormone levels. At the lab appointment, you will also complete the required intake forms. These forms include a detailed patient history and a list of present complaints.

Dr. Perlis will review your labs to determine a specific customized treatment plan for you. At that time, we will order your hormones and they’ll be shipped to you from a specialized, accredited compound pharmacy. You will be scheduled for regular labs and office visits to ensure you are adhering to our recommendations. This will also allow us to monitor any changes in your health status as you continue BHRT.

If your thyroid hormone is low (hypothyroidism), oftentimes you will require a separate medication for your thyroid gland. We can help you determine whether naturethriod, armour, compounded thyroid or Synthroid or cytomel can correct this deficiency.

If you are experiencing adrenal fatigue (low cortisol) Dr. Perlis will discuss which options would be best for you. We often suggest an adrenal supplement that can help with energy during low-energy periods.
