Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a powerful tool in combating the effects of hormonal changes as we age. Both men and women can benefit from this proven therapy. Uncomfortable symptoms of Menopause and Andropause can be dramatically improved. Libido increases, energy returns, hot flashes and night sweats disappear, sleep regulates, hair loss slows, and quality of life is enhanced.
How Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Works
Unlike synthetic hormone replacement therapy, BHRT uses hormones that are biologically identical to the hormones in our bodies. Derived from natural plant sources such as soy and yams, bioidentical hormones can be more easily assimilated by the body without the side effects commonly associated with synthetics.
BHRT is customized to the individual based on a simple laboratory test to identify hormonal imbalances. The bioidentical hormones are then prescribed and compounded by a specialty pharmacy that is trained in BHRT. Your Senara Doctor will prescribe a compound to address imbalances in estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, cortisol, thyroid, and Vitamin D. Leveling your hormones can have a profound impact on your weight loss efforts, improving results drastically.
To ensure optimal results, your Senara Medical Weight Loss Doctor will monitor and retest your levels every 6-8 weeks. By continually monitoring your hormone levels and symptoms, we can adjust your prescription to your individual needs as your body adjusts and recuperates.
One of the most effective delivery methods of BHRT is Pellet Therapy. The BioIdentical Hormones are compounded in to a pellet form and injected into the hip or buttock. The pellets are slowly dissolved in to the body, providing consistent delivery. Every three to six months your Senara Doctor will insert a new pellet, adjusting the compound to your new needs. Pellet injections are low maintenance and convenient to administer. They provide consistent hormone replacement therapy delivery.
