Hormone Therapy

What is Hormone Therapy?

Have you given your hormone levels any thought lately? Healthy hormones are important for a happy and healthy you! When your hormones are out of balance, it can lead to an array of uncomfortable symptoms including fatigue, mood swings, sleep disorders, loss of libido, weight gain, and much more. Hormone therapy is used to treat hormone imbalances in men and women.

Bioidentical hormones are man-made hormones that are identical in their makeup to the hormones naturally produced by the human body (some pharmaceutical hormone preparations are more identical to animal hormones not human ones!) Bioidentical hormones have been shown to be a safer, more natural alternative to conventional hormone therapy. At VitaLab, we use bioidentical hormone therapy to help balance estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone levels. Along with treating symptoms associated with unbalanced hormones, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may also improve skin health, reduce your risk for diabetes, cataracts, and tooth loss, and also improve your general well-being and quality of life. 


As we age, the levels of some of our hormones decrease, which can lead to uncomfortable symptoms. Bioidentical hormone treatment is used to replace the hormones that have been lost, and are available as pills, patches, gels, creams, shots, and pellets that are implanted under the skin. The goal is to use the lowest dose of hormone therapy that produces results.  

Dr. Oberg is also California’s only certified Menopause Method prescriber, offering the only organic topical option available and a proven, scientifically precise method to achieve your optimal dose. While there are many hormone delivery methods, we typically prescribe a topical oil because it is the only organic option, free of solvents, parabens, and chemicals.

Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (bHRT) prescription programs are offered as a subscription. The first 6 months include an initial consultation and baseline prescription, 2-3 follow-up consultations to refine dosing and response, and laboratory testing to confirm you are at the optimal dose. Once hormone doses are optimized, patients can move to an annual subscription for routine testing and re-prescribing.
