What are bio-identical hormones?

They are supplementary hormones that are identical to those produced in your body.

How do they work?

Once it is determined which hormones are out of balance, the correct dosage will be prescribed to restore the normal hormonal balance. This will allow you to feel more energetic, less irritable, and have fewer mood swings. It will also improve skin tone, encourage weight loss and reduce bone loss.

What to expect during consultation.

Your medical history will be reviewed, followed by a discussion with Dr. Kirsten regarding your concerns and goals.

A blood or saliva test will likely be requested to determine specific hormonal levels in your body, and you may be asked to fill out a personal intake or braverman form .
During a return visit your results will be discussed and a course of action established.
You will work with Dr. Kirsten and a local compounding pharmacist to tailor the correct bio-identical hormone dosage and application for your needs.

Book a consultation with Dr. Andre Kirsten to review your needs and discuss how to balance your hormones and restore your overall vitality.         Phone 250-354-2003 to book your confidential appointment
