Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical hormones (BIH) have been in production for years, but many anti-aging practitioners are woefully unfamiliar with this type of therapy and the benefits it has to offer. Bioidentical hormones are hormones manufactured in a lab with the same molecular structures that your body creates, and they function exactly the same way. While manufacturers can’t patent a bioidentical product, many produce patentable synthetic hormones instead. These include prescriptions such as:

  • Premarin
  • Prempro
  • Provera

While these are widely available drugs that are quite lucrative (due to their patentability), they aren’t specifically tailored to your unique health needs. 

Medical Spa Practices

As a state-of-the-art medical spa that is overseen by board-certified specialists, we can take a more individualistic approach for the most successful results. The therapy typically begins with a hormone panel, which involves laboratory tests conducted to determine your personal hormone levels. If it’s warranted, you’ll be prescribed an exact dosage of the bioidentical hormone that will be prepared to exacting specifications at a registered compounding pharmacy. 

Your Health

Once you’ve begun your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, you’ll be closely monitored via regular follow-up appointments where additional hormone panels will be conducted to ensure that you’re experiencing optimal symptom relief while taking the lowest possible dosage. In the initial stages of your treatment, you’ll have a panel done every three months, but once your personal balance has been restored, you’ll only need a yearly panel – with your yearly physical exam. Since elevated estrogen is associated with some increased health risks, your attending physician will ensure that you undergo the yearly pap smears and mammograms necessary to sustain optimal health. 

Anti-Aging Therapy

Many, many women experience many forms of relief with bioidentical replacement therapy, including:

  • Relief from hot flashes and night sweats
  • Improvements in sleep
  • Less vaginal dryness and itching
  • More enjoyable sex
  • Fewer fractures caused by bone thinning (osteoporosis)
  • Less risk of heart attack
  • Lowered risk of dementia

While there are health risks associated with different kinds of hormone replacement therapies, studies indicate that the pros can outweigh the cons. 

Drugs, however, are not your only option. Many women find relief through a natural approach that combines medical-grade nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes, and endocrine support. In fact, you may be able to achieve optimal hormone balance without any medical intervention. Working closely with an anti-aging professional will help ensure that you are on the path that’s right for you and your health.
