Bioidential Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical hormones can be very helpful for people who suffer from a hormonal imbalance or who might not make enough hormones naturally.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
BHRT is a treatment designed to replace hormones that are lost or not balanced due to the natural process of aging, or other factors that contribute to hormone imbalance. The treatment includes the use of hormones that come from natural sources such as soy products, yams, and even cactus to create matches of the hormones naturally produced in the body. These hormones do not contain the same metabolites or by-products used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Therefore, many of the negative side effects of traditional hormone therapy are not experienced with the use of BHRT.
Goal of therapy
Our hormones flow in a delicate balance. When imbalanced, people begin to experience negative mood symptoms, depression, fatigue, insomnia, and issues with memory amongst many other symptoms. The goal of BHRT is to restore the hormone imbalance improving your overall health and well-being. It is intended to improve how you feel physically, and emotionally. The health promotional benefits include improving cholesterol levels, decreasing cardiac risk, reducing the risk of developing diabetes, decreasing premenstrual syndrome, treating polycystic ovarian syndrome and postpartum depression.
How is therapy initiated?
After a comprehensive health history and blood work, and a review of your symptoms a care plan will be developed specifically for you. A specialized pharmacy compounds the hormones into doses specific to you. The hormones can be in the form of creams, pills, troches, or in some cases injections. After therapy is started, follow-up appointments are completed every 3 months. It is important to have close follow-ups to monitor symptoms, and adjust the hormones so that you achieve optimal wellness. Along with hormone imbalances, some people have nutrient, vitamin, or mineral deficiencies, which is a part of functional medicine and can also help with overall wellness.
What does BHRT treat?
Bioidentical hormones come from natural compounds such as soy products and yam. Because BHRT is made from plants, they have a molecular structure that is identical to hormones found in the body. When hormone levels become imbalanced or decrease, people begin to feel exhausted, irritable, depressed, and decreased cognition. If the hormones are unbalanced for too long, health complications begin to arise including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, cognitive ailments, and certain types of cancer. BHRT treats symptoms of low testosterone, postpartum depression, perimenopause and menopause symptoms, and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). The overall health benefits promote cardiovascular health, reduced diabetes risk, and lower cholesterol. Hormone optimization plays a role in chronic fatigue syndrome & fibromyalgia & weight management.
