Editha Bielitz, M.D. – Pensacola Bioidentical Hormones
Dr. Editha Bielitz, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Gynecologists, and she received her medical training at Vilnius V. Kapsukas State University in Lithuania and completed her residency in Gynecology at Mount Sinai Hospital in Hartford, CT. Dr. Bielitz has developed a great interest in non-invasive aesthetic procedures and has great success in obtaining superb results. She also has used Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy to help patients that are going through perimenopause, menopause, menstrual issues, and other syndromes that stem from hormonal imbalances.
Dr. Editha Bielitz offers Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy as a preferred option for re-establishing the body’s optimal hormonal equilibrium. Bio-identical hormones have exactly the same molecular and chemical structure as the hormones produced within the human body. Bio-identical hormones are usually synthesized from soy or yam sources, which is different from traditional hormone therapies that use hormones that are made from animal excretions.
Because bio-identical hormones have an identical structure to the body’s endogenous hormones, they can often be used with little to no side effects. In the past, non bio-identical hormones were linked with unpleasant side effects and were unable to be dosed according to individual needs. However, bio-identical hormones can be dosed according to individual needs, and no two prescriptions are alike because each woman’s imbalances are unique to her body.
While hormones can become imbalanced at any age, they often become imbalanced with aging; however, hormone imbalances can also be due to environmental factors, lack of exercise, a poor diet, and stress.
Some of the symptoms that can occur with hormonal imbalances may include:
- Irregular Periods
- Headaches or Migraines
- Thinning Bones
- Hot Flashes
- Night Sweats
- Vaginal Dryness
- Low Libido
- Weak Muscles
- Poor Memory
Consequently, when prescribed and administered in physiologic doses, the body’s hormone receptors accept and recognize bio-identical hormones. The dosage is tailored to each individuals needs. Hormone balance is then re-established safely and naturally. Most patients report that they finally feel like themselves again.
