Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) vs. Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

First, let’s answer the question… what are hormones? Hormones are the body’s powerful chemical messengers. While traveling to tissues and organs through the bloodstream, hormones manage mood, sexual function, growth, metabolism, and development. Even minor changes in natural hormone levels can have substantial consequences.

Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is based on the usage of synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones like nandrolone, estradiol, methyl, and progestin, are chemically-based, human-made patented hormones. Therefore, treatment is indistinguishable for every patient and not personalized to their specific needs.

As one of the most natural choices available for achieving hormone balance, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) has been a successful treatment option for both men and women for more than 80 years. Derived from natural sources, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers a number of unique advantages that make it distinct. First, bioidentical hormones are designed to be structurally identical to the natural hormones produced by the human body. “Bio” is defined as the science associated with living organisms and “identical” means they are a structural match to the body’s natural hormones. This assures that the bioidentical hormone compound will fit precisely onto receptors and maintain even system balance with hormone treatment. Also, the composition of bioidentical hormones improves the quality and outcome of treatment while reducing unpleasant side effects. All hormone treatment plans are custom-created and tailored to the unique need of every patient.

What Causes Hormonal Imbalance?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Women experience a variety of hormonal fluctuations throughout life from puberty to pregnancy and childbirth to menopause. The constant changes associated with the ups and downs of hormone imbalance can cause symptoms at any age. Symptoms such as extreme weight gain, mood swings, anxiety, insomnia, low sexual desire and constant fatigue can be due to high testosterone in women (low testosterone in women too!), progesterone deficiencies, estrogen variations, and even early thyroid symptoms in women. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help restore natural hormone balance and help alleviate symptoms, as well as decrease risk of disease.  With the proper hormone treatment plan, women will find relief from the issues listed above and see:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Testosterone levels in men manage many important functions in the male body. As a part of aging, natural hormone levels start to decline, and symptoms of low testosterone in men begin to develop in their 30’s. Low testosterone in men is the most common hormone imbalance and can cause such symptoms as hair loss, weight gain, erectile dysfunction, depression, and muscle loss. Added together, these signs of low testosterone in men can seriously deteriorate the quality of life and wellbeing. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an easy, painless and efficient way to restore normal testosterone levels in men. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been shown to address all of the symptoms of low testosterone mentioned above as well reduce the risk of certain diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular conditions.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

The body’s natural hormone production begin to decline with age organically. This reduction can cause many uncomfortable or debilitating symptoms such as weight gain, low bone density, muscle mass loss, hot flashes, night sweats, and fatigue. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been shown to address many of these conditions associated with menopause and andropause. Some of the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy include:
