Bioidentical Hormones Q&A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are a more natural form of hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones are modified plant-based hormones that have the same structure and function as the hormones in your body.

When your hormone levels are out of balance, bioidentical hormone therapy helps restore levels to alleviate symptoms and improve health and well-being. Replacing hormones with bioidentical hormones helps you reclaim your health in a more natural way. 

Who benefits from bioidentical hormones?

Glendale Whole Health uses bioidentical hormones to address many hormone balance issues that affect both men and women. You may benefit from bioidentical hormones from Glendale Whole Health if you’re struggling with the symptoms of:


Menopause is a normal stage in a woman’s life that marks the end of her reproductive years. It also means a decrease in the production of estrogen and progesterone, which are female sex hormones.

Declining levels of estrogen and progesterone cause many of the symptoms associated with menopause, including hot flashes, fatigue, mood changes, weight gain, and low libido.

With bioidentical hormones, the health experts at Glendale Whole Health restore your hormone levels and alleviate your symptoms. 


Like women, men also experience a decrease in testosterone levels as they get older. This condition is known as andropause and causes symptoms such as low libido, weight gain, hair loss, and fatigue. 

For men with andropause, Glendale Whole Health uses bioidentical hormones in the form of testosterone pellets to optimize levels and restore health and vitality. 

General hormone balancing

Glendale Whole Health may also use bioidentical hormones to restore general hormone levels, such as low thyroid hormones and vitamin D, which parathyroid hormones regulate. 

The holistic health practice also offers peptide therapy to support general hormone balancing. 

For men and women struggling with sexual dysfunction or looking for natural ways to enhance sexual wellness, Glendale Whole Health offers the O-Shot® and P-Shot®.   

How are bioidentical hormones given?

Glendale Whole Health uses BioTE® pellet therapy for menopause and andropause bioidentical hormone therapy replacement. BioTE pellets are customized to match your unique hormone needs. 

Your provider at Glendale Whole Health places the pellet under your skin, which then delivers a consistent dose of hormones to optimize balance and promote health. 

The aesthetic, functional, and integrative medicine practice also offers bioidentical creams.
