Here at RevitalizeMaui we specialize in supervised and monitored BHRT. Our expert medical staff led by Dr. Okwuje is here to make sure that you get the therapy you need, without any of the unpleasant and risky side effects that can happen with unsupervised supplementation.
With our all-inclusive programs designed to fit each individual patient’s unique needs, you can expect to notice results from BHRT within 4-6 weeks of beginning treatment. For most women, optimal hormone levels will be restored within the first two months of treatment.
There are imbalances that can occur in each of the hormone systems. Each imbalance needs to be adjusted in order to achieve peak health that will make you look and feel your very best.
Some of the areas that many patients see improvement from are from sex hormone imbalance, thyroid function, cortisol and other hormone/peptide imbalance. We approach treatment by focusing on the area that is causing the greatest amount of discomfort to get you feeling better quickly.
It is important to understand the various treatments used in balancing hormones so that you can understand what type of program would suit you best. Sex hormone imbalance is often treated with a customized dose of topical hormone (whether testosterone, progesterone and/or estrogen). Sometimes, our doctor may suggest the addition of an oral progesterone.
These options comprise the BHRT Topical/Oral treatment for sex hormone balancing. We also have thyroid, injectable testosterone, human growth hormone, and peptides/supplement treatments. Each treatment is separate.
Initial Consultation and Evaluation
Before your initial BHRT consultation, we will send you a link to fill out our Health Questionnaire which includes a detailed medical history, as well as an extensive overview of any symptoms you may be experiencing.
This is vital to your treatment because it allows us to have a complete picture of the state of your health. During your initial consultation and evaluation you and Dr. Okwuje will discuss the information in your Health Questionnaire, any possible health issues and possible treatment options. Afterwards, he will determine which lab tests need to be ordered to develop your treatment plan.
Lab testing must be done before starting any BHRT program, and then continues every 90 days. We can order your tests at the laboratory of your choice. The results of these labs, combined with the information from your Initial Consultation and Health Questionnaire, will allow us to determine if you are a candidate for BHRT, and what the best treatment plan for you will be.
After we have your initial lab results back, you will need to come in for a follow-up appointment to review the results with the doctor, and discuss your treatment plan. Follow up appointments are required every 90 days after starting a BHRT program. Once your hormones are well balanced, and you’re having great results and are satisfied with your regimen, we may be able to switch to less frequent lab testing. However, even in the absence of laboratory testing, we do require a follow up every quarter to ensure that a medical follow up evaluation has been conducted.
