Bio-identical hormones are synthetic hormones designed to mimic natural hormones as closely as possible. They are so similar that the body cannot distinguish the difference, making bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) more effective than other forms of HRT. Typically, BHRT is used to combat common signs and symptoms of aging in both men and women. By restoring more youthful hormone levels, patients can resolve common issues such as weight gain, sexual dysfunction, loss of energy, sleep problems, or poor memory and mental fog.
Pellet therapy is one method of administering BHRT. This involves the use of a small pellet which is inserted just below the skin, typically near the hip or buttock region. Once in place, the BHRT pellet administers a consistent dose of hormones to the body, allowing patients to feel constant relief from their symptoms without worrying about daily medications.
One of the most common ways to administer BHRT is through an injection. These may be completed either by a medical professional or in your own home.
Topical creams may be used for HRT. This makes it easy to apply your treatment each day for consistent relief from symptoms.
While HRT is safe and effective, some patients prefer to take natural supplements instead. For patients who do use HRT treatments, these supplements can be used to further support their results. Some common supplements may include B vitamins, vitamin E or D, omega-3s, or herbal supplements such as black cohosh, St. John’s wort, dong quai, and more.
