Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is an alternative approach that more closely represents the body’s own chemical structure of hormones. They are usually derived from plant sources such as wild yams or soy in contrast to synthetic hormones used in conventional HRT.


Is the period in a man’s life that is marked by a drop in the levels of the male hormone, testosterone. Normally occurring between the ages of 45 and 55, andropause is slow, steady reduction in testosterone levels.

Find relief with BHRT immediately


Here at VIOR, we have a precise process to determine if you are a candidate for BHRT and then get you started with a custom program.

The Examination

Once we have identified that hormonal imbalance may be a contributing factor to your health concerns, a physical examination, detailed history and symptom review are performed.

Blood Testing

Initial blood testing is done to determine your current hormonal state and combined with specific questionnaires to determine if you qualify for this type of treatment. This may be supplemented with urine and/or saliva testing.

Start Hormones

Many patients opt for the bio-identical approach because it strays away from the “one size fits all” approach and provides a personal, customized treatment protocol.



Perimenopause / Menopause

Some women develop moderate to severe symptoms during this time including hot flashes, vaginal dryness, irregular periods and sleep disorders. Treatment options include diet & lifestyle modifications, stress management and bio-identical hormone replacement based on your specific diagnostic test results.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

If you are diagnosed with low testosterone and present with symptoms often associated with this condition you have several options to address this issue. These include testosterone injections or compounded testosterone creams/gels. As part of your treatment, clomiphene, anastrozole and/or HCG may be recommended.

Menstrual Cycle Irregularities

Changes in your menstrual cycle are a warning sign that deeper underlying issues should be addressed. We map out your hormones throughout the month and determine an appropriate treatment to restore regularity to your monthly cycle.

Estrogen Dominance

Our environment today is laden with chemicals that mimic estrogen in the body. A proper balance of sex hormones including DHEA, Testosterone, Progesterone and Estrogen are required for the body to work well. Treatment involves a thorough history of environmental toxins, their elimination, and supporting the body to metabolize estrogen derivates while balancing the supporting hormones.

Hormonal Optimization

Even though you blood metabolite levels may be in the “reference range” does not mean they are optimal for you. Depending on the level of performance you are trying to achieve and your symptoms, an anti-aging plan is developed to maximize your life.
