Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

We believe in the balance and restoration of the individual biological hormonal footprint with Nature’s Template. This belief guides our use of Bio-Identical hormones. This is especially true for female hormones, but also for testosterone, thyroid, and adrenal hormones. 

In women we use BHRT(Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy) for balance in a wide variety of clinical situations including PMS, PCOS, the Perimenopause and Menopause. 

The advantages of Bio-Identical Hormone balance are namely an Individualized plan that can be used: 

  • Cyclically
  • Continuously
  • Intermittent

There are also very few side effects when BHRT is kept within the parameters of physiologicwhat your body naturally produces – dosing.

We monitor hormonal testing with:

  • Clinical Symptoms
  • Serum Testing
  • Saliva Testing 

 Saliva testing has a number of advantages:

  • Optimized for convenience of collection,
  • No special processing (e.g. centrifugation, ice-packs) prior to shipment, 
  • Hormones stable in saliva for prolonged period of time, 
  • Convenient shipment by regular US mail, 
  • Representative of bioavailable level of steroid hormones in the bloodstream.

I have been coming here for 10 years At 58 years old, it is no coincidence that I am in the best shape of my life. Dr. Augoustides' attention to my mind, body and spirit holistically is a primary reason that I look, feel and act 15 years younger And the team that supports the doctor are like family to me. I have always recommended Piedmont Integrative Medicine to anyone that will listen!
