What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy? 

Hormones are critical chemical messengers that regulate most of your primary bodily functions. When your hormones are out of balance, you experience an array of unpleasant symptoms that affect your body temperature, sexual health, metabolism, mood, and energy levels. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, restores your natural hormone levels to optimize wellness. 

Your hormones fall out of balance due to stress, aging, and natural life changes. Women often experience hormone changes in the years leading up to menopause. Men naturally experience reduced testosterone levels as they age. Certain medical conditions and life choices can also accelerate hormone depletion.

Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) uses hormones derived from chemicals or animal compounds. Bioidentical hormones are different. They’re made from natural plant ingredients and match the makeup of your body hormones exactly. 

Your provider customizes the dosage of bioidentical hormones for you. Men and women typically struggle with low levels of primary sex hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. 

Who benefits from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Men and women with hormone imbalances can benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Suspect a hormone imbalance if you struggle with the following:

  • Sleep disruptions
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Depression, irritability, and anxiety
  • Low libido
  • Vaginal dryness or erectile dysfunction
  • Changes in appetite
  • Loss of muscle mass and increased body fat
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Thin or brittle hair
  • Hot flashes 
  • Night sweats
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering

Hormonal imbalances can make you feel like something is off. You just don’t feel like yourself. When hormone balance is restored, these symptoms reduce or disappear altogether.

How do you administer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

The team administers bioidentical hormones as pellets inserted just underneath your skin in a short, simple in-office procedure. Your provider places the pellets near your hip.

The pellets are long-lasting and release hormones over the course of 3-6 months. They release a stable, steady dose of hormones when your body needs them, so you don’t have to worry about remembering “to take” supplemental hormones.
