Your hormones help to regulate many vital bodily functions. They act as messengers designed to interact with target cells and organs to provoke a change or result. As you get older, hormone production changes, creating an imbalance that leads to a range of symptoms. Board-certified physician Richard E. Jackson, MD, at Changes Medical Spa & Laser Center in Johnson City, Tennessee, offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to restore balance, alleviate symptoms, and improve health. The medical spa also offers The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet® to support health and wellness. To schedule an appointment, call the office or book one online today.

Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a natural hormone replacement option for men and women. Bioidentical hormones are created from food sources, such as soy or yams, and have the same chemical structure as the hormones produced by your body. With bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, the natural hormones restore balance to alleviate symptoms and improve health.

Is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy right for me?

Dr. Jackson determines if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is right for you after a consultation. Both men and women experience a reduction in hormone production as they get older, specifically the sex hormones testosterone in men and estrogen and progesterone in women.

An imbalance in these sex hormones may produce a range of symptoms you may shrug off as an inevitable part of the aging process, like:

  • Weight gain
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss
  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Vaginal dryness in women


Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy restores hormone balance to alleviate symptoms and improve your vitality. During your consultation, Dr. Jackson asks detailed questions about your symptoms, medical and family history, and conducts a physical exam. He also requests specific lab testing to assess hormone levels.

At Changes Medical Spa & Laser Center, Dr. Jackson offers many bioidentical therapy hormone replacement options, including the BioTEĀ® method, and makes specific recommendations based on your laboratory findings. 

What is BioTE?

Changes Medical Spa & Laser Center is the only provider in the area that offers BioTE Medical, which provides bioidentical hormone replacement pellets for men and women. The BioTE pellets are customized to match your specific hormonal needs and placed under your skin to deliver a steady stream of hormones to optimize balance. 

Dr. Jackson is certified in the BioTE method.

What is The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet?

Dedicated to promoting health and healing, Changes Medical Spa & Laser Center also offers The ProLon Fasting Mimicking Diet. The five-day dietary program is a healthier alternative to a water fast and includes plant-based whole foods that nourish your body while promoting cell regeneration and rejuvenation.
