Hormone Therapy

It’s common for hormones to decrease as you age, resulting in sexual dysfunction, hot flashes, mood problems, slowed metabolism, and fatigue. Hawaii Natural Medicine, led by naturopathic doctor Jené Ferrante, ND, provides hormone therapy to patients aged 20 and older in Honolulu, Hawaii. Dr. Jene Ferrante is one of four certified Biote providers on Oahu.  Biote is well known for its quality control of hormone pellet production and stricter than industry standards.  Both men and women can benefit from this treatment, boosting energy and restoring your quality of life.

What is hormone therapy?

Hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone are vital for all genders. They support several functions in your body, such as controlling your metabolism, strengthening your muscles and bones, and regulating blood sugar, blood pressure, and your immune system. 

Illnesses, chronic diseases, aging, insufficient sleep, and a poor diet can reduce your hormone levels. A decrease in hormones can lead to side effects like sexual dysfunction, fatigue, depression, energy loss, infertility, and hair loss. 

Hormone therapy treats and prevents the health problems low hormones can cause. 

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is similar to traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The difference is it uses natural hormones derived from plants instead of synthetic hormones created in a lab. 

Bioidentical hormones mimic the natural hormones produced by your body. The treatment is more comfortable and presents fewer risks. 

Which symptoms can hormone therapy address?

Hormone therapy can reduce symptoms of hormone imbalance, including:

  • Fatigue

The team reviews your symptoms, medical history, past and current diagnoses, and medications to determine if you’re a good candidate for hormone therapy. They may recommend a blood test to better understand your current hormone levels and subsequent treatment needs. 

What are the benefits of hormone replacement therapy?

  • Easier weight loss

How does hormone therapy work?

Several forms of hormone therapy exist. You can try pills, patches, gels, implants, vaginal creams or rings, or slow-releasing suppositories to boost estrogen or other hormones.

The team also offers bioidentical hormone therapy with BioTE®. This type of treatment is administered via pellets under your skin. The pellets are about the size of a grain of rice, and the procedure is painless with minimal recovery time. 

The team shares with you the benefits and risks associated with various hormone therapy treatments and customizes a holistic treatment plan tailored to your needs.
