• Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone losses that occur at menopause (or even earlier) can cause symptoms, including hot flushes, which significantly interfere with quality of life and contribute to increased risk of a number of diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease and depression.
Our goal is to relieve disruptive symptoms such as hot flushes, while reducing health risks, in the safest way possible through the use of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, a form of natural hormone replacement therapy.
Oral hormones have negative side effects. Dr. Litman uses natural remedies for menopause and hot flushes based on bioidentical hormones. Litman also uses methods that put the hormones more directly into the circulation — routes such as the inner cheek (called a ‘troche’) or, as a second choice, through the skin (creams).
In this way, hormones structurally identical to those produced in the human body can be replaced in balanced combinations (according to what is found lacking) in order to reproduce as closely as possible the physiology of the healthy body.
