BHRT- Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a very popular and now widely available treatment option for both men and women typically over the age of 35. Hormone replacement therapy is an excellent option for those who feel worn out, are experiencing abnormal weight gain,  thinning hair, anxiety, mood swings, night sweats, anxiety, depression, hair thinning decreased libido (sex drive) and more.

What is BHRT-Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses customized bioidentical hormones to replenish the body with the hormone levels it needs to function correctly. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is an excellent form of hormone replacement therapy because it offers patients relief from the discomforts that come along with hormonal imbalances, including hot flashes,  insomnia, weight gain, muscle loss,  decreased libido (sex drive), and more. Bioidentical hormones are designed to be uniform to the hormones that your body produces naturally, meaning they are made to have the exact same chemical structure as your natural hormones. This makes it so that your body can use the hormones effectively. Bioidentical hormones also tend to have fewer side effects because they act like your natural hormones. This exact hormone match to your body reduces the risk of side effects but also has a positive impact on the treatment. Bioidentical hormones are available from pharmaceutical companies and can even be compounded in a lab to the exact specifications prescribed to you by your doctor. Each prescription is written specifically for your body’s unique needs.

Many patients opt for BHRT because it is not a one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare. Each bioidentical hormone prescription is custom-compounded, based on each patient’s individual diagnostic results, making bioidentical hormones safer and more effective in comparison to conventional (synthetic) hormones.

BodyLogicMD affiliated practitioners provide state-of-the-art blood, urine, and saliva testing in order to accurately assess each patient’s hormone levels. Based on this evaluation, the BodyLogicMD affiliated practitioner partners with the patient to review labs, symptoms, and lifestyle factors in an effort to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. The highly trained experts of BodyLogicMD have helped tens of thousands of women and men achieve hormone balance and improve overall health, through tailored treatment plans that may include a combination of bioidentical hormone therapy, targeted supplementation, lifestyle strategies, and other advanced therapies.

Benefits of HRT – Hormone Replacement Therapy

The benefits of bioidentical hormones outweigh the risks. Many experts believe that women and men who opt for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy instead of undergoing synthetic hormone replacement therapy have a lower chance of experiencing adverse reactions. BHRT side effects are usually mild if present at all.

Some of the benefits of using bioidentical hormones include:

  • Reduced risk of osteoporosis and improved bone density

  • Reduced incidence of hot flashes and vaginal dryness

  • Better maintenance of muscle mass and strength

  • Improved cholesterol levels

  • Reduced risk of endometrial and breast cancer

  • Reduced risk of depression

  • Improved sleep

  • Better mood, concentration and memory

  • Improved libido

  • Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

Andropause is one of the key contributors to impacting the health and well-being of men. It is associated with the decrease of the male hormone testosterone. Furthermore, it is estimated that 30% of men age 50 or older will experience symptoms of andropause. As a result, hormone replacement therapy is prescribed to offset the effects. However, if left untreated, other serious conditions can rise.

There are many signs and symptoms, including:

  • Fatigue

  • Weakness, Reduced Muscle Mass
  • Reduced Libido (sex drive)
  • Heart Disease

  • Erectile Dysfunction

  • Low Sperm Count

  • Low Sperm

  • Diminished Cognitive Function

  • Memory Impairment

Testosterone hormones are primarily produced within the testicles. It maintains men’s sperm production, red blood cell production, and muscle strength/mass. In addition, it also maintains fat distribution, bone density, and sex drive — testosterone peaks during male adolescence and early adulthood. Typically, at age 30 or 40 testosterone levels decline 1% each year after. 

At Custom Care Pharmacy we evaluate your  medication history. Not to mention, we work with each patient’s physician to create the proper compounds essential for hormone replacement therapy for men. However, living a healthier lifestyle compliments hormone replacement for men. Above all, we promote the appropriate use of supplements, proper nutrition, and exercise.

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Replacing deficient hormones with chemically identical customized hormones that are naturally produced by the body is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Hormones have a natural inclination to decline with an illness or age. Custom Care Pharmacy has produced thousands of customized HRT for women in a successful capacity that has improved their quality of life. Our process includes evaluating the symptoms and signs of hormonal imbalance and replacing deficient hormones. We monitor the therapy and fine tune as the process proceeds.

How We Monitor HRT for Women

Research has shown estrogen decreases the risk of osteoporosis. Custom Care Pharmacy uses estrogen to treat postmenopausal problems such as urinary disorders, painful intercourse, tissue breakdown, and vaginal dryness. To counter attack estrogen dominance, physicians will prescribe progesterone for perimenopausal women. Young, healthy women produce androgen hormones that include testosterone and DHEA. Androgens are essential for muscle, bone, the integrity of the skin, and libido. High levels of the stress hormone cortisol, is also known  to increase belly fat.  This hormone is also monitored to assist in weight maintenance.  Women have benefited massively from HRT therapy involving androgens, progesterone, and estrogens. As a precaution, we evaluate nutritional status, adrenal and thyroid functions.

Women in their late 40s will start experience hormonal imbalance. Generally, hot flashes and other problems begin. Perimenopause is where a woman will continue to menstruate while little changes occur. Usually, last between 3 to years with the average duration being 4 years. When the last period occurs, women enter the stage of menopause (average age of 51). Women become postmenopausal once a full year has passed since the last menstrual cycle. Most symptoms decline within 2 to 5 years.
