What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Of course you have many questions about hormone treatments? “What is HRT?” “Is hormone replacement therapy safe?” “What are bioidentical hormones?” “What is the difference between Bioidentical Hormones and synthetic hormones?” You have questions, we have answers! Before we discuss “what is hormone therapy,” let’s take a step back and learn a little about hormones. Hormones are a key part of the way your body functions. They are the chemical messengers secreted by the many glands of the endocrine system. Hormones and carried by the blood stream and regulate most body processes, from sexual function to digestion. As important as hormones are, unfortunately, their levels do drop over time. At its most basic level, HRT replaces, or “refills the tank.” There are different forms of HRT, but bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is by far the safest and most effective form of hormone replacement. Bioidentical hormones are perfect duplicates of the hormones your body makes. So, if you are wondering “are bioidentical hormones safe,” the truth is, bioidentical hormones are safer and more effective than synthetic hormones. Also instead of being made in a large impersonal lab, your Bioidentical hormones are custom made to your specific needs and lifestyle by local compounding pharmacists.
What are the Benefits of BHRT
There are many positive benefits of BHRT are plentiful. Hormone Replacement Therapy is designed to correct hormonal imbalances, and make you feel younger and more alive! There is no safer or more efficient form of hormone therapy than BHRT. Hormone therapy can stop, and in many cases, reverse the typical “symptoms” we think of as “aging,” such as: thinning hair, weight gain, fatigue, loss of muscle tone, depression, and sexual wellness issues.
Who Can Benefit From BHRT?
We need hormones for so many critical body functions, but unfortunately our bodies cannot make them in unlimited supply. Any man or woman who is over 35 may be beginning to feel the effect of declining hormones and related hormonal imbalances. One of the first signs that you may need the benefits of HRT is tiredness and fatigue. If you couple that with gaining weight that is harder and harder to take off, along with some “trouble in the bedroom,” there is a very good chance that you are a candidate for hormone treatment.
How Do I Know if I Need Hormone Therapy?
Hormone imbalances usually show up between the ages of 35 and 55. The most common signs of low hormones include:
- Energy loss
- Mood Swings
- Weight gain, especially in the abdomen
- Muscle and Bone loss
- Sleepless nights
- Loss of sex drive
- Night sweats (women)
- Hot flashes (women)
- Erectile Dysfunction (men)
If you believe you may have low hormones, contact our offices for a hormone test. Only a hormone test can tell if you need HRT.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men
The benefits of hormone therapy for men are all about testosterone replacement. The principal male hormone is testosterone. Male hormone replacement therapy is designed to boost your testosterone level and put back on a path to being younger, stronger, and more self-confident. Bioidentical hormone therapy for men can treat and/or reverse many of the symptoms of Low Testosterone, also known as “Low-T,” and will help you to:
- Maintain your Bone density
- Burn Fat
- Improve muscle strength and tone
- Improve you sex drive and sexual performance
- Improve focus and cognition
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women
Generally speaking, women are more familiar with hormones, and hormone therapy than their male counterparts. Hormone therapy has been used for a lot longer to treat women going through menopause. Even women who are not yet menopausal, can and do suffer from hormone imbalances, simply because of the greater role hormones play in women’s anatomy. HRT has long been used to help women cope with menopause. Several years ago, women began to question the use of hormone replacement, believing largely erroneous reports that HRT can increase the risk of breast cancer or heart disease. Such reports were based on very outdated studies, and relate very little to the way our hormone specialists prescribe HRT for women today. Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for women is remains the optimum method to deal with the most challenging difficulties of menopause such as night sweats, mood swings, depression and hot flashes. Keep in mind that you do not have to be menopausal or pre-menopausal to benefit from HRT. Regardless of how close to menopause you may or may not be, if you are experiencing any of the difficulties listed on these pages, there is a very good chance that you could benefit from HRT.
Side Effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Of course if you are thinking about starting hormone therapy, you are wondering “Are there side effects to hormone replacement therapy?” It is a reasonable concern, but in reality HRT, when properly prescribed HRT doctors, has very few potential side effects. Any risk of HRT side effects, is far outweighed by the benefits. Of course BHRT is not side effect free, but the side effects of today’s Hormone replacement treatments are low. And, those risks are made lower, by working with our Miami area hormone doctors, who are up on the latest uses and studies Hormone Therapy. Our Miami Hormone Doctors understand it is not minor side effects that may keep you from considering hormone treatments. It is the fear of major hormone side effects like cancer or heart disease. Let us put those fears to rest. Reports you may have heard that HRT can increase the risk of heart disease or cancer, are largely unfounded. In fact, some of the latest research on HRT indicate that it may even prevent cancer and lower the risk of heart attack!
What Kinds of HRT is Available?
HRT treatment can take many forms, and can be prescribed to you in a number of ways.
- Testosterone – Most men look for HRT to deal with Low-T or declining levels of testosterone. Our HRT for men treatments are customized to evaluate your testosterone level and bring it back to optimal level for your needs and lifestyle.
- HGH – Growth hormone, AKA Human Growth Hormone or HGH, has many anti-aging benefits. Our Miami anti-aging doctors will evaluate your HGH and levels, and create an HRT program to make you look and you’re your best!
- Sermorelin – Sermorelin is not a hormone. It stimulated the production of other hormones such as HGH and testosterone. Sermorelin Therapy alone, or in conjunction with HRT is designed to boost you levels of these critical hormones.
- Thyroid Hormone Therapy – Your thyroid gland produces hormones that are very important to your energy metabolism. Thyroid HRT can make you feel like you are in your 20s again!
- Ipamorelin Therapy – Like Sermorelin, Ipamorelin isn’t a hormone, but it helps push your body to create more vital hormones, particularly HGH.
There are various ways to prescribe HRT. Your hormone doctor may give you: hormone replacement pellets, creams, injections or hormonal skin patches.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Testimonials
“I am 45. I just do not like how I am feeling and looking lately. I knew I was no longer the man I once was. I was putting on weight, always tired, depressed, and even was having some “trouble in the bedroom.” I tried changing my habits, took some vitamins and supplements, but nothing really made a difference. Then a friend told me about HRT. I called your offices, set up an appointment. My hormone test said I had Low-T, I’ve been on the program just for a few weeks now, and I am already feeling some big changes!” — Mike S. – Aventura, FL
“I was going through the worst of you know “woman’s stuff,” the night sweats, mood swings, hot flashes, even though I am not that close to menopause. I called your clinic, and your counselors were so sympathetic and helpful! They told me you do not have to be menopausal to have hormonal imbalances and have some of the same kinds of symptoms. Well, they put me on a program of low-dose HRT pellets, and I am feeling myself again!” — Cynthia D. – Hollywood, FL
“Look, I’ll come right to the point, I was having some “intimate issues,” and then I also started feeling tired, and depressed, even my work was suffering. I heard Joe Rose, you know the guy on the radio, talking about Dr. Gaines and low testosterone. Well I have been with HealthGAINS for about 5 months and really feel I am getting back to the top of my game…” — Dennis M. – Coral Gables, FL

Hormone Therapy FAQs
How are bioidentical hormones different from synthetic hormones?

Are Bioidentical Hormones Safe?
BHRT using bioidentical hormones is actually the safest form of hormone therapy there is. Since bioidentical hormones are “identical” to those made by your body, they are better recognized by your body and have fewer side-effects than synthetic hormones.
How much does hormone replacement therapy cost in Miami?
We pride ourselves on providing the most cost effective HRT in your area. Of course the cost of HRT differs from patient to patient, but you can expect to pay from $600 to about $2500 per month depending on your age, gender and results of your hormone tests.
How long until I see results using hormone therapy?
The full benefits of hormone therapy are usually not seen for several months. However, many of our clients start to see results, particularly when it comes to having more energy or improvements in sexual drive in a few weeks.
Can hormone therapy be used for weight loss?
People often wonder if hormone imbalances lead to weight gain. A hormone imbalance does not cause weight gain, but hormones are involved in fat metabolism. Hormone therapy should not be a replacement for a good diet and exercise, but HRT can and does improve your ability to burn fat and build lean muscle, and therefore can help you lose weight and get in better shape.
