Thousands of our patients tell us hormone replacement therapy (HRT) gave them back their lives. Clinical scientific studies show HRT is not only effective, but when monitored, is safe for treating symptoms for both women and men. In addition, mounting evidence continues to show it is significantly life extending.
Here’s a simple explanation: As you age, your body may slow production of certain hormones. Hormone Replacement Therapy essentially makes up what your body no longer makes. Adding the hormones back allows key functions to continue versus abate.
The Optimal Health Associates approach to Hormone Replacement Therapy is simple due to our vast experience. We determine the symptoms and correlate them to a thorough medical and laboratory evaluation. Each patient will then work with our team to find out exactly what is causing your symptoms. You will work with your provider to design a plan uniquely formulated to meet your specific needs.
Hormones are chemicals made by the glands that act to control certain actions of cells and organs. In essence, hormones regulate your body’s functions and keep things running smoothly. However, these hormones can become imbalanced or deficient in a condition known as hormone imbalance.
Hormone replacement therapy is one type of treatment designed to correct this problem, but not all forms are created equally. BioTE® hormone pellet therapy goes above and beyond in the treatment of hormone imbalance to provide the best results.
Hormone pellet therapy has several advantages over these other methods. These benefits include:
- It has the same molecular structure as human hormones
- It lasts longer than other treatments, typically around three to five months
- It’s the most widely studied form of natural hormone therapy
- It provides a steady stream of hormones in your blood
- It provides individualized dosing
- It’s inserted under the skin

If you have it you know why it’s in all caps, if you don’t – rejoice. Vaginal atrophy is not terminal – except possibly to your sex life. This doesn’t have to be the case. Optimal Health is very excited to offer a new option for treating this problem:
Vaginal atrophy is the thinning and drying of the vaginal walls due to less estrogen being produced in the body. This usually occurs due to menopause or cancer treatments. The MonaLisa Touch is an in-office procedure for treating vaginal atrophy that is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. The MonaLisa counteracts vaginal atrophy with a small fractal laser that stimulates collagen production in the vagina thus naturally restoring vaginal mucosa and rehydrating the vaginal walls.
The MonaLisa laser is a great option for any women experiencing vaginal dryness, pain with intercourse due to poor lubrication or elasticity, lost of orgasmic function, post-menopausal recurrent vaginal/urinary tract infection or irritative bladder symptoms. It is especially exciting for those who do not want to use hormone therapy or for those that hormone replacement therapy is contraindicated. The intravaginal laser treatment directly targets the symptoms of vaginal atrophy instead of altering hormone levels. The treatment returns the vagina and the surrounding tissues to normal.
This treatment works almost 100 percent of the time, takes about 5 minutes and there is no recovery period. Patients will need 3 sessions to get long term results.
This procedure has been used successfully throughout Europe since 2010 and is FDA approved in the United States.
