Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

What is BHRT?

The hormones in your body carry signals throughout the cells of your body, coordinating everything from your mood to digestion to growth. When they’re out of balance, the affected body systems often malfunction and lead to symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, bloating, low libido, and so on.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment that introduces hormones into your body to resolve the symptoms associated with hormone decline or imbalance. These hormones are chemically identical to those produced in your body, and include testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, and adrenal hormones. Everyone feels better, looks better and performs better when their hormones are in balance. With natural bio-identical hormones, both women and men can find relief from symptoms of hormonal imbalance without the risks that come along with synthetic hormones. When imbalances occur, you can experience a wide variety of symptoms, depending on which hormone(s) are out of balance. Bio-identical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources instead of synthetic chemicals. They are designed to replicate the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally in our bodies.Bioidentical hormones are obtained from plant estrogen and manufactured into various forms, including pills, injections, creams, gels, and patches.

Why Choose BHRT?

​The hormones used in BHRT are “natural” and identical to those produced in your body, which makes them safer for our clients. Our treatments have proven to be beneficial to people of all ages, especially women in the perimenopause or menopause stages to help them manage the associated symptoms that include:

  • Night sweats

  • Hot flashes

  • Memory loss

  • Mood swings

  • Sleep problems

  • Weight gain

  • Low libido and pain during sex

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can also help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and bone loss, and help to manage other problems associated with:

  • Aging - by improving skin hydration, elasticity, and thickness and reducing wrinkles

  • Cancer - by restoring normal estrogen levels and providing relief from treatment-related symptoms including insomnia, migraines, low libido, and incontinence

  • Thinning hair

  • Exhaustion and less energy

  • Reduced concentration, memory problems, brain fog

What are the Signs & Symptoms of Low Hormones in Men and Women?

A low level of testosterone in a man means more than just a low sex drive or erectile dysfunction (ED). Symptoms consistent with low testosterone are:

Men:

  • Low sex drive

  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Loss of muscle mass

  • Increased body fat (especially in the waist area)

  • Decreased bone mass

  • Mood changes

  • Lower mental capacity

  • Depression

  • Irritability

  • Brain Fog

Additionally, studies have shown there are some conditions that are consistent with low levels of testosterone including:

  • Diabetes

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Depression

  • Stress

  • Anxiety

  • Alcohol use

  • High Cholesterol

Women:

  • Fatigue

  • Night Sweats

  • Hot flashes

  • Decreased sex drive

  • Weight gain

  • Insomnia

  • Irritability

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Cold hands & feet

If your menstrual cycle has stopped before menopause, or if you are experiencing this or any other symptom of menopause, you may have low estradiol. An increase in UTIs, depression or painful intercourse may also indicate low estradiol in women. Hormone replacement therapy can help anyone whose hormones are out of balance. However, the most common time women seek out hormone replacement therapy is when they're experiencing menopause. There are three stages of menopause, perimenopause and post-menopause. There are also rare instances regarding women who have never had balanced hormones, as evidenced by excessively painful menstrual cycles and extreme mood swings.

Therapy is usually administered through topical creams, pellets and injections that slowly introduce the new hormones in a controlled manner. Some of the most notable effects include healthier skin and hair, as well as a more normalized sex drive. On average, patients begin seeing and feeling results within the first month or two of treatment and we proactively monitor their progress throughout the entire process.Before trying bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, we recommend that you first discuss other treatment options with MedFusion such as diet, exercise, stress management and others.
