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

To begin with let’s address the question of… what are hormones? Hormones are prominent chemical messengers in the body that travel through the bloodstream to different tissues and organs. The hormones influence the operation of mood, sexual performance, metabolism, growth, and development. Even modest changes in natural hormone levels can have sizeable outcomes.

When natural hormones become unstable – often due to the innate aging process – a considerable amount of issues can result from hormonal imbalance. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a tried-and-true, valuable solution to natural hormone balance.

Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) stems from the knowledge of using synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones are mass-produced, chemically-constructed patented hormones. Due to this patent, synthetic hormone treatment is alike for all patients and not adjusted to their specific needs. Additionally, synthetic hormones have been associated with a greater risk of breast cancer and heart disease.

Alternatively, there is the option of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones acquired from plant sources and constructed to have the same molecular structure as hormones formed by the body. This identical structure ensures that bioidentical hormones fit into the body’s receptors similar to a missing puzzle piece, presenting the same practical sequence as endogenous hormones, giving higher-quality hormone treatment outcomes, and minimizing the risk of side effects.

Opting for a more advanced, natural hormone treatment such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – compared to a synthetic hormone replacement therapy – provides patients with a heightened overall bioidentical hormone experience, along with a reduced range of disagreeable reactions and only mild side effects. Several of the most evident advantages of using bioidentical hormones include:

What Causes Hormonal Imbalance?

While in pursuit of ideal hormone levels, natural hormone levels can become unstable quickly due to the aging process, toxic contaminants, or a health disorder. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a functional solution for replacing hormones that the body is not able to produce on its own.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Women who have gone through perimenopause, menopause, or post-menopause often realize a myriad of uncomfortable symptoms correlated with hormone imbalance. Throughout these transitions, hormone levels can sway noticeably leading to high testosterone in women (as well as low testosterone in women), estrogen dominance, and progesterone deficiencies. Thyroid symptoms in women can become more prominent during these changes as well. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help to recreate natural hormone balance and women can anticipate very positive and impressive benefits such as:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

The symptoms of hormone imbalance in men come to light little by little and are characteristically categorized as indications of aging. The most prevalent type of a hormone deficit is low testosterone in men. Symptoms of low testosterone in men can come about in the form of hair loss, low libido, fatigue, and muscle loss. Signs of low testosterone in men commence around midlife, robbing men of liveliness and peak health. For the most part, men are disturbed by drops in testosterone which is a direct result of the aging process, but then again can men also experience similar symptoms due to variations in cortisol or thyroid hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy presents men with a chance to mend natural hormone levels and appreciate health and quality of life benefits, including:

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Patients report significant advances in their health and quality of life following bioidentical hormone replacement treatment. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy focuses on a number of complaints related to aging, such as menopause, perimenopause, andropause, and the complementing indications of aging like hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and fatigue. Men and women living with several forms of hormone imbalance like trouble sleeping, weight gain, mood swings, and thinning hair benefit from an all-inclusive treatment plan produced by a hormone specialist trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy practices.

Bioidentical Pellet Therapy

Among patients, the most favorable way to receive bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is by pellet therapy. Bioidentical pellet therapy integrates the minimally invasive implantation of bioidentical hormone pellets into the soft fatty tissue beneath the skin during a brief fifteen-minute, in-office procedure. Bioidentical hormone pellets are approximately the size of a grain of rice and made of bioidentical testosterone or estrogen with a natural cholesterol binder. Pellets are usually implanted just under the waist line in the upper buttocks. Bioidentical pellets are produced with a precise concentration and firmness, so they dissolve gradually over a 3 to 4-month timeframe. As the bioidentical pellets dissolve, hormones are slowly but surely absorbed into the system in a way that imitates the release of biologically-produced hormones.

Additional bioidentical hormone methodologies like hormone creams, gels, or pills, cannot match the efficiency of pellet therapy for managing menopause and andropause symptoms, lack of libido, fatigue, and many other symptoms caused by hormonal imbalance. Although there are many intricacies in governing hormone therapy, pellet therapy is the cornerstone of Dr. Warner’s bioidentical hormone replacement therapy practice.

Attaining optimal hormone levels can help to:

Bioidentical testosterone pellets have been utilized since 1938, and have been recognized as convenient, and able to provide the body with a constant stream of hormone replacement. For women, pellets normally last 3-4 months; in men, 4-5 months.
