Hormonal Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Hormonal replacement therapy offers a revolutionary solution for hormonal imbalances caused by menopause, thyroid disorders, and other associated health conditions. The most commonly used bioidentical hormones include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. 

At Preventus Concierge Medicine, we offer personalized solutions tailored to each of our patient’s unique needs. Our medical approach alleviates the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance, such as fatigue, mood swings, and sleep disturbances, while also fostering life-long health goals. 

Understanding Hormone Imbalance

Hormones are in charge of regulating multiple bodily functions, including growth and development, metabolism, sexual function, reproduction, and mood regulation. Even a slight imbalance in their levels can lead to a wide range of health issues, such as:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Loss of interest in sex or painful intercourse
  • Problems sleeping
  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Low mood
  • Weight gain
  • Mood changes and irritability
  • Memory loss, confusion, or brain fog

Causes for Hormone Imbalance

Common causes behind hormonal imbalances include aging, stress, medical conditions, and lifestyle factors. 

Aging

Hormone production begins to naturally decline as we age, leading to balance issues. In women, this decrease in estrogen and progesterone occurs during menopause. In men, the andropause stage usually involves a decline in testosterone levels.

Stress

Chronic stress can result in an excess production of cortisol, leading to a significant disruption in hormonal balance. 

Medical Conditions

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid disorders, diabetes, and adrenal gland disorders can significantly impact your body’s regular hormone production. 

Lifestyle Factors

Poor habits like lack of exercise, irregular sleep schedules, and excessive alcohol or drug use can disrupt your body’s natural hormone production. 

Type of Hormones Replicated by BHRT

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) aims to replicate the molecular structure of your natural hormones to alleviate the symptoms of imbalances in your body. 

Estrogen

Estrogen is a hormone primarily produced by the ovaries that is in charge of promoting the maintenance of female characteristics and the regulation of the reproductive system, including the menstrual cycle. 

Progesterone

Progesterone is produced after the ovulation process, and it is the hormone responsible for preparing the lining of the uterus for a fertilized egg, supporting pregnancy, and suppressing estrogen production after ovulation. 

Testosterone

Testosterone is produced by the adrenal glands and ovaries. It is responsible for the menstrual cycle, adding strength to the muscles and bones and producing sexual desire. 

Benefits of BHRT Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers a wide range of health benefits, including the following:

  • Symptom relief: BHRT helps restore balance in your body and alleviates the symptoms caused by hormonal fluctuations. 
  • Improved quality of life: BHRT improves your energy levels, enhances your sleep and mental clarity, increases libido, decreases joint pain, and restores your quality of life. 
  • Risk factor management: By restoring hormonal equilibrium, the risk of conditions such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cognitive decline are significantly reduced. 
  • Weight management: Hormonal imbalances can lead to difficulty losing weight and retaining lean muscle mass. BHRT boosts your metabolism and aids in maintaining muscle mass, helping you achieve your desired physique. 

Administering BHRT

Bioidentical Hormone Therapy can be administered through various methods, including:

  • Topic products like creams and gels: Topical hormones are applied and absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. 
  • Injections: Hormonal injections provide a quick and effective method to increase hormonal levels.
  • Patches and pellets: Patches are applied to the skin and release hormones periodically. Hormone pellets are implants inserted under the skin that slowly release hormones over several months, offering a long-term solution without daily administration.
