Building healthy hormones is the secret to optimal health. At Water’s Edge Natural Medicine, our innovative approach to bioidentical hormone balancing can help regenerate your health for greater vibrancy and longevity.

What are hormones and why do they matter?

Hormones are biochemical messengers that tell cells what to do from moment to moment. If your cells receive the wrong message, they can’t perform their proper role, and disease is the inevitable result. Until hormone balance is restored, you may have uncomfortable symptoms.

The key to optimal physical and emotional health is having a well-balanced hormone system. Balanced hormones and good health lead to more energy, less pain, a better appearance, emotional stability, a stronger immune system, and an overall sense of well-being.

BioIdentical Hormones – Heal the healthy way

At Water’s Edge Natural Medicine, we specialize in bioidentical hormone balancing, which includes diagnosis of hormone disorders and drug-free treatment with non-synthetic medications. For women, we feature the “Female Hormone Panel”, the most advanced lab test available for detecting and analyzing female hormonal patterns. We then apply the newest and most effective methods for restoring optimal hormone balance using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

How does this differ from conventional HRT?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) medicines commonly prescribed by traditional allopathic doctors are produced by pharmaceutical companies who advise physicians on how to prescribe them. They are synthetic compounds that are similar, but not identical to, the body’s own hormones, and as the body does not recognize them as well, patients may experience side effects. These Hormone Replacement Therapy products can be patented because they have novel, synthetic elements, unlike bio-identical hormones.

Sermorelin: Physician Education

What is Sermorelin Acetate?

  • Sermoreline Acetate is a compound similar in structure to growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH). It has been known to stimulate the pituitary gland and secrete growth hormone
  • It is a bioidentical synthetic hormone peptide sequence comprised of 29 amino acids
  • Sermorelin was approved by the FDA to treat children but many functional medicine doctors are using it off label to optimize growth hormone levels in adults
  • Sermorelin is affordable, and can be used off label
  • Sermorelin Acetate is best prescribed to take at least 30 minutes before or after eating
  • It is normally prescribed at night to maximize the body's natural cycle of growth hormone and stimulate the pituitary gland during sleep

What forms of Sermorelin are available?

Sermorelin can be taken via injections or orally.

What are GHRP-2 and 6? How are they used with Sermorelin?

GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are forms of growth hormone releasing peptides. They stimulate the pituitary gland's natural production of endogenous human growth hormone. Sermorelin is an analogue of GHRH. Synergistic release of GH from the pituitary gland is initiated when Sermorelin is concurrently administered with a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP-2 or GHRP-6).

Wells Pharmacy Network offers Sermorelin independently or combined with GHRP-2, GHRP-6, or both.
