BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY
BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY and Wiley’s Hormone Replacement Protocol
Dr. Pulnik provides expert Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy, also known as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, and Wiley’s Bio-Rhythmic Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Protocol.
Bio-identical hormones are biologically identical to the hormones made in your body. Research supports the safety and effectiveness of bio-identical hormones when used appropriately.
The goal for natural bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is to correct the hormonal imbalance or deficiency using physiologic replacement doses, in which small doses are used, designed to raise levels to the optimal range. By doing so, a younger physiologic state can be maintained. There are few known side effects with physiologic replacement of natural bio-identical hormones.
Although bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can be safely used in both pre-menopausal women as well as post-menopausal women, certain medical conditions are contraindicated in any type of hormone replacement therapy.
Dr. Pulnik takes a thorough medical history and review of your symptoms and provides hormone testing via serum (blood) or saliva, as well as other specialized testing for optimal wellness, to determine the best treatment plan for you. We discuss your cardiac profile as part of your bio-identical new patient intake.
Using physiologic doses, hormone replacement is individualized to your specific needs. Your bi-identical hormone prescription is filled at a licensed compounding pharmacy with experience in providing compounded hormones. We follow your progress with regular periodic testing.
