What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the use of hormones to help resolve symptoms related to hormonal imbalance or decline in hormone production tied to aging. Certain hormone treatments are called “bioidentical” because the types of hormones used are identical in molecular structure to those produced by the human body. BHRT treatments include creams, lotions, pellets, gels, sprays or tablets, with the goal of achieving hormone balance. Bioidentical hormones are the preferred method of hormone replacement therapy compared to their synthetic counterparts, which have different chemical structures and an increased risk for developing breast cancer and cardiovascular disease.
What are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
OBI BioAesthetic Institute works with a compounding pharmacy to offer our patients the highest quality hormone combinations needed by their bodies. Bioidentical hormones are proven to produce fewer unwanted side effects and maximize the benefits of hormone replacement compared to synthetic hormone formulations. According to a clinical article written by the esteemed Dr. Kent Holtorf, bioidentical hormones are associated with a lower risk of breast cancer, cardiovascular disease, and are more effective than their synthetic and animal-derived counterparts.
How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
Hormones are messengers in our body comprised of a solid steroid base (cholesterol). Hormone messengers act on molecules throughout the body, switching on and off much of the cellular behavior that makes our bodies function. As we age, our hormones may not function optimally in their messenger role due to hormonal imbalance. As a result, we may begin to notice an onset of symptoms which may impact our quality of life and health. Personalized bioidentical (duplicates the structure of the body’s hormones) hormone replacement therapy can provide the support your body needs to aid in hormone restoration and balance.
What Results Can I Expect from Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
We are all biochemically individual, so each person’s results will vary. You will need to give your body time to adjust to the bioidentical hormones. For example, your results will be different from your mother’s or sister’s. Our bodies continue to age, so therapies will need to be continually adjusted, which is why follow-up is necessary and there may need to be adjustments.
