When we are young, we are invincible and full of energy. As the years pass, aging begins to make itself known in unpleasant ways.

All of these items can be changed with the help of bioidentical hormone therapy. Tyler Wellcare is proud to offer this hormone therapy service to Tyler, Texas patients.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone therapy is defined as preventive medicine, largely by focusing on supplementation of natural hormones. Did you know we start to lose one to three percent of our hormones starting at age 30 and the decline continues? By utilizing hormone therapy, patients can experience similar hormone levels as when they were in their mid-30s. In our mid-30s, the body is functioning at an optimal level. The immune system is strong, metabolism is efficient and the ability to convert fat to muscle is at its greatest.
Bioidentical hormones are natural, plant based compounds that have a chemical structure that matches the body’s natural hormones. This hormone therapy method uses small pellets, injections or creams to deliver the hormones. In the pellet method, small pellets are inserted just below the skin. The pellets are metabolized by the body through cardio output, allowing the body to absorb the natural amount it needs to perform at a healthy, natural level.
