Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

“We age because our hormones decline, our hormones don’t decline because we age”. ~Ron Rothenberg, M.D. World Expert in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

BHRT are plant -based hormones that are chemically identical to those our bodies produce naturally. The hormones used in traditional HRT are made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetic hormones.

Do You Experience Any Of These Symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Brain Fog
  • Irritability
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Decreased Muscle Mass
  • Mood Swings
  • Decreased Libido
  • Hot Flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Unbalanced hormones can be the reason!

Hormones are very powerful. They are important signaling messengers in our bodies, and that’s why the slightest imbalance can lead to a host of symptoms and problems. Your body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body. 

They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. Therefore, when your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being. Imbalanced hormones can lead to many symptoms including brain fog, trouble sleeping, gaining weight, hot flashes and decreased interest in life.

At AustinMD, our team will work with you to address the underlying imbalances of lifestyle and nutritional deficiencies that can lead to hormone imbalance or dysfunction. We utilize the most accurate hormone testing and natural therapies to balance your hormones such as Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). This is the best and most natural way to balance your hormones.

Preliminary testing is done with a combination of blood, saliva or both to determine hormone imbalances. Once we have identified any imbalances, a customized treatment plan is designed, with our patient’s lifestyle goals in mind, to address specific areas that need improvement.

For women, whether they are pre or post-menopausal, Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) will be discussed as a means to addressing your symptoms.

Each and every patient is unique.

Many might show similar symptoms but have completely different imbalances in their hormone expression.

How is BHRT different from HRT?

BHRT are plant-based hormones that are chemically identical to those our bodies produce naturally. The hormones used in traditional HRT are made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetic hormones.

BHRT is the more natural way to support any hormone imbalances since they closely match the hormone structures of your own body rather than synthetic forms provided by HRT.

There are several types of Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) including creams, injections, patches, oral pills and pellets. We work with our patients to determine the best solution that will fit their individual needs and lifestyle.

While there are many hormone therapy doctors who practice medicine, there are various opinions and ways to provide hormone therapy. We encourage you to understand the differences between HRT and BHRT and decide for yourself what is best for your body.

Some benefits of BHRT include:

  • Supporting Healthy Muscle and Bone
  • Restoring your Wellbeing
  • Brain Support
  • Better Sleep
  • More Energy
  • Healthy Weight
  • Improved Libido

We at AustinMD believe that supporting our minds and bodies through natural approaches and natural products is the best choice to serve our clients.

Bioidentical hormones are a replica of the hormones that are naturally produced by the body. The difference between bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones is that, although both are created in labs, synthetic hormones are not identical to the hormones naturally created in your body while bioidentical hormones match human hormones molecule by molecule.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy benefits men and women of various ages suffering from hormonal imbalances. Each treatment plan is uniquely tailored to the individual.

Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from plants, such as soy or wild yams, and are designed to be structurally identical to the hormones produced naturally inside the human body. Additional ingredients in each prescription vary by hormone: testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, etc. and form: creams, gels, pellets, pills, etc.
Hormones affect a multitude of pathways in the body. Women may experience fluctuations in their hormone levels throughout the lifespan. Imbalances can occur due lifestyle and environmental factors, as well as expected changes, such as onset of menses, pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause.
