At Alpha Hydration, it’s more than IV’s, it’s wellness.
Alpha BHRT is BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) with pellets. Basically, it is a better, more effective form of BHRT. We start with blood work and a lab diagnostic tests and from there we delve into your health concerns, personal/family health history, lifestyle, home/work environments, daily stressors, and social activities. This gives us an in-depth understanding of your individual body, life, and emotional experiences that will affect your health and hormones.
It’s not just HRT, it’s HRT optimization. It is an integrated, functional medicine approach.
Traditional BHRT with pellets treats the symptoms, while Alpha BHRT treats the root cause of the problem. Our approach looks at what is truly causing the patient’s hormone imbalance or health issue. By looking at how all of the body’s systems are working together, we can gain a clear picture of cause and effect.

Higher Sex Drive
It’s common to get a lower labido as you age. This can help you get your mojo back.
People experience more energy, better moods, and they feel better overall.
Low libido and decreased sex drive is common probem for men and women over the age of 30, and even younger (depending on your genetics and lifestyle). Low labido, lack of sexual desire, and the inability to maintain an erection/lubrication are effects of hormonal imbalance. There may be other factors that are the root cause of your sexual impediments, but often the issue comes back to hormone imbalance.
Holding stubborn weight, especially after changing your diet and implementing an exercise program, can feel frustrating and incredibly defeating to a person. Sometimes food and exercise are not the problem; oftentimes, hormonal imbalances are the root cause. One of the key problems around weight gain and weight retention is that of the ‘stubborn belly fat’ that the person simply cannot shed. When diet and exercise fail to achieve the desired results, we need to take a look at the real root of the problem, and maybe that root is hormones.
Most people can remember a time when they heard their parents or grandparents talking about how hard it is for them to get a good night’s sleep or how they constantly wake up and have trouble going back to sleep. This is not a new phenomenon; this is not a new problem. This has been a recurring issue for people as they get older, due to many things, but very often it is due to imbalances in their hormones.
