We believe in trying to use whatever works best that is least invasive, most natural, cost-effective, and safe. When possible, we try and use complementary therapies that have some significant degree of evidence of efficacy. In other cases, we might recommend a treatment out of the naturopathic community that has been traditionally used for decades.

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women and Men
Bioidentical hormones are estradiol (main form of estrogen) and testosterone and progesterone, and are present in both men and women. Many problems are associated with deficiencies or imbalances in these hormones in both men and women. The endocrine system excretes hormones, which control and regulate almost all of the functions that make life possible in the physical body, and some of these functions include reproduction, metabolism, growth, energy and heat production, cellular repair, digestion, sleep cycles, and nutrient synthesis. As people put wear and tear on their systems through stress, poor dietary factors, environmental toxins, and aging, the endocrine system becomes less capable of producing essential hormones. A lack of hormone production creates a domino effect in the body that first causes its functions to become impaired, which then leads to less physiological efficiency, a loss of vitality, and finally, age related diseases. Balancing hormone levels with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may prevent the degeneration of bodily systems and functions.
Dr. Epperly of Advanced Integrative Healthcare has successfully treated over 3000 patients with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Dr Epperly is considered an expert in his field and has been providing natural bioidentical hormone therapy for over 30 years in the Chicago Metro area.
What’s the best delivery system for bioidenticals?
They can be in the form of patches, gels, creams, injectable, pellet implants, or vaginal suppositories. The exact therapy is tailored to fit the individual and their unique circumstances. We prescribe compounded creams and gels customized just for you. It’s not a one size fits all. We are one of the very first practices in Illinois to utilize hormone pellet implants and have been doing so since 2004. Our practice is completely independent from any large medical groups.
Bioidentical Hormone Options:
- Bioidentical Hormone Pellets (link)
- Subdermal (under the skin)
- Sublingual (under the tongue)
- Vaginal suppositories or gel
- Trans-dermal (through the skin as with patches, gels, or creams)
- Intramuscular injection (as with testosterone cypionate which is not quite bioidentical)
