Austin Wellness Clinic works with you to create comprehensive, preventive treatment programs using bioidentical hormone therapy in Austin, TX combined with proper nutrition and exercise.

Bioidentical hormones are identical in structure to your body's natural hormones but are produced in a lab from plant matter. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy differs from traditional hormone replacement therapy wherein synthetic hormones are produced from animals. Since the hormones that are naturally produced in humans differ from those produced in animals, your body often views these animal hormones as foreign, sometimes leading to an immune response and unwanted side effects. However, since your body views bioidentical hormones the same as those it produces itself, they are often a safer and more effective alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapy. Some bioidentical hormones Austin Wellness Clinic may choose to prescribe include: progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, DHEA, melatonin, thyroid hormones, or others.
Hormones regulate nearly every metabolic process in your body. When your hormones are not properly balanced, your metabolic functions are affected resulting in symptoms, reduction in quality of life, and can lead to disease. It also becomes much more difficult for your body to benefit from optimized nutrition and fitness. With a healthy lifestyle comprised of regular exercise and a well balanced diet, bioidentical hormone therapy or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) can be a great adjunct to a preventive health strategy. The Austin Wellness Clinic's goal is to help people achieve their maximum level of health through a combination of nutrition, fitness, hormone balancing, and lifestyle guidance. Once it's all put into place, your health and vitality will not only return to normal, but can finally reach their optimal levels.
