Bio-identical Hormone Replacement

Unlike conventional hormones, bio-identical hormones are molecularly identical to the hormones that are within your body. This means that your body recognizes it as its own – creating a more predictable outcome with fewer risks. Furthermore, at True You Medical, we use compounded hormones, meaning that we can formulate a combination to suit your personal needs – ensuring that you reach your health goals without risk of over-supplementation.

Hormones are essential to our well being.
