Kristina Janicas, N.P. uses bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to prevent the effects of aging and age related diseases, while improving overall health and wellness. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has changed the way that men and women age, and it is an evidence-based regenerative and preventative medicine. Because hormones control and regulate several bodily functions, a loss of vital hormones can lead to several age related diseases, which may include hypertension, diabetes, high triglycerides, heart disease, sexual dysfunction, thyroid imbalances, uterine fibroids, prostate enlargement, and endometriosis. Regulating vital hormones can help men and women to prevent these diseases and reverse other age related symptoms that often accompany male and female hormone decline. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been able to help men and women regenerate youthfulness and recover their vitality.

What is Bioidentical Hormones Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (“BHRT”) is the term commonly used to describe the treatment of hormone deficiencies brought on by aging, by replacing them with hormone molecules that are identical to the hormones produced naturally within the human body.
Hormones are responsible for controlling the delicate biochemical balance in our bodies. They move our bodies through each phase of our lives, from infancy through puberty, reproduction, and old age. They prepare our bodies to fight, to flee, and to mate, and they are responsible for many of our daily mood swings and hunger pangs. Hormones are produced by our cells in very small quantities, and trace amounts can have significant effects.
