Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Restore hormonal imbalance with your body's identical hormone structure and mechanisms.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a therapeutic approach that utilizes hormones identical to those naturally found in the human body. Its aim is to restore hormonal balance and alleviate symptoms caused by hormonal imbalances or deficiencies. BHRT emphasizes the use of bioidentical hormones derived from natural sources, rather than synthetic alternatives, to closely mimic the molecular structure of endogenous hormones and promote optimal physiological responses.
As we age, our bodies produce fewer hormones, leading to disruptive menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, weight gain, night sweats, mood swings, and decreased bone density (even for men). Bioidentical hormones used in BHRT can effectively alleviate these symptoms. The therapy includes estrogen, progesterone, testosterone or other relevant hormones that are specifically tailored to address the unique needs of each patient. Dr Raj provides a personalized bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program that customizes your hormone regimen to ensure you receive the precise hormones necessary for optimal bodily functions.
It is important to note that bioidentical hormone therapy is an effective treatment option for individuals suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED). This therapy aims to restore hormone balance and alleviate ED symptoms. Testosterone, a key hormone responsible for sexual function, is often prescribed as part of BHRT for individuals with low levels. By replenishing testosterone, BHRT can improve libido and enhance erectile function.
As with any medical procedure, it is essential to consult with a qualified medical physician like Dr. Raj to determine if Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is suitable and safe for you. Dr Raj will consider your unique circumstances and discuss potential benefits as well as any associated risks or limitations.Expand
Who is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for:
Patients who exhibit various signs that pertain to their overall bodily functions. For instance, fluctuations in weight coupled with abnormal patterns of appetite. Notable changes in the skin's complexion or texture are often observed, such as an increase in acne breakouts or the occurrence of dryness.
In addition, patients may also exhibit signs of psychological manifestations such as mood swings and heightened irritability. They may encounter difficulties in managing stress levels and exhibit heightened feelings of anxiety or depression.
Why is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy beneficial:
One key benefit of BHRT pertains to its personalized nature, as it allows for individualized hormone therapy tailored to each patient's unique physiological profile. Additionally, the customization aspect enables our healthcare providers to adjust dosages and compositions according to patients' specific needs, promoting a more targeted and balanced hormonal restoration. Most notably, the utilization of bioidentical hormones derived from natural sources offers a potentially reduced risk of adverse reactions or side effects.
What to expect from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy:
Initially, a comprehensive evaluation is conducted to assess the patient's hormone levels through blood tests and clinical examinations. Upon identification of any hormonal irregularities or deficiencies, an individualized treatment plan is devised.
Subsequently, a compounding pharmacy formulates customized bioidentical hormones tailored to each patient's specific requirements. These hormones may be administered via various routes such as transdermal creams, oral tablets, sublingual troches, or injectables.
Furthermore, regular monitoring of hormone levels are foreseen throughout the course of treatment to ensure appropriate dosages are maintained and adjustments can be made if necessary.
