What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
People seeking HRT have many questions, such as “what is HRT?” “What is hormone therapy?” and “What is the difference between hormone therapy and bioidentical hormone therapy?” To understand hormone therapy, you must first learn a little about hormones. Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. As such, they regulate many critical bodily functions from metabolism to sexuality. However, hormones are not made in unlimited supply. In fact, your body’s most critical hormones such as testosterone and growth hormone diminish over time. Bioidentical hormone therapy at its most basic level is replacing the hormones that time and nature take away. Bioidentical hormones are what they sound like. They are exactly “identical” to the naturally occurring hormones produced by your body. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural sources. They exactly match the chemical and molecular structures of the hormones that they are designed to replace. When used in Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, or BHRT, Bioidentical hormones are custom made to your needs as prescribed by your BHRT doctor by compounding pharmacies. Bioidentical hormone therapy is the most recommended way to treat hormonal imbalances, and the symptoms of declining hormones.
What are the Benefits of BHRT?
Your health can improve in many ways thanks to the benefits of hormone therapy. The many benefits of HRT are even greater when you select bioidentical hormones over synthetic hormones for your HRT. Synthetic hormones are not the same as the hormones made by the human body. That is why they are called synthetic. On the contrary, Bioidentical hormones are an exact duplicate on the molecular level of the hormones your body makes. That means your body react to them and treats then exactly as they would your regular hormones. That is why BHRT is the safest and most effective form of hormone replacement therapy there is!
Who Can Benefit from BHRT?
Hormonal imbalances are become more common the older you get. That is why anyone over 35 can benefit from hormone replacement. We provide HRT for men, and hormone therapy for women. Who can benefit from BHRT, just about anybody between the ages of 35-65 who is feeling these signs and symptoms:
- Lack of energy
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Sexual issues
- Cognitive difficulties
With Bioidentical Hormone Therapy our anti-aging physicians can put a stop to, and in many cases reverse these age-related issues
How Do I Know if I Need Hormone Therapy?
Hormones regulate or control so many important bodily functions. Hormones do not work alone, but all work together in kind of special dance. If any of them are “out of step” with the music, hormone imbalances can occur. They common signs that you hormones may be out of balance or low include:
- An overall lack of energy
- Mood swings
- Weight gain, particularly an increase in belly fat
- Muscle Loss
- Poor Sleep
- Night sweats (women)
- Hot flashes (women)
- Erectile Dysfunction (men)
- Loss of libido or sex drive
- Cognitive difficulties
Do any of the above sound like you? If so, contact our Sacramento anti-aging physicians and schedule an appointment to have your hormones tested.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Men
The most important hormone for men is testosterone. Male Hormone Therapy is designed as a treatment for low testosterone, also known as low T. Your hormone levels must be maintained in a delicate balance for optimal health. That is the goal of hormone treatment for low testosterone. There can sometime be a problem with having too much testosterone, but hormone therapy for men is usually about solving the problems related to the testosterone decline that naturally occurs as we age. Testosterone hormone treatments for men are designed to help you achieve peak performance at any age. Bioidentical hormone treatments for men can:
- Help you maintain weight and proper body mass
- Improve Bone Density
- Combat Erectile Dysfunction
- Improve Libido
- Improve Cognition
- Improve Your Emotional well-being
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy for Women
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is still the safest and most effective way of treating hormonal imbalances in woman, as well as helping women to deal with the most debilitating symptoms of menopause. The benefits of HRT for woman far outweigh on potential risks. As women age, the will experience many of the symptoms of unbalanced hormones such as hot flashes and night sweats. BHRT is the most effective therapy around to treat the most severe symptoms of the hormonal imbalances that occur at the “Change of Life.” Women who had been suffering from night sweats and hot flashes have reported as much as 90% improvement in symptoms within a few weeks of starting BHRT.
Side Effects of Hormone Replacement Therapy
Anyone who is considering hormone treatments will obviously be concerned about HRT side effects, but, Hormone Therapy is actually a lot safer, and has much fewer side effects than you have been lead to believe. Most of the side effects of hormone replacement you have heard of involve the use of synthetic hormones and not bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormone side effects are very rare. Your body cannot tell BHRT hormones from the ones it normally produces, and that is why BHRT is the safest and most effective hormone treatments you can have. You may have heard reports of some major side effects of hormone replacement therapy, such as that HRT can cause cancer, or increase your risk of heart disease. Neither of these are true, and in fact some of the newest information on hormone replacement indicates that HRT may lower your risk of heart disease and some cancers!

Hormone Replacement Therapy Testimonials
“I’m pushing 60, and I have always been in great shape. But, lately no matter how much I work out, I have this “spare tire” I just can’t lose. Another guy at the gym who looks ripped, told me to get my testosterone level checked. Sure enough my testosterone was low. I got on a program of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and I am looking great, feeling great, and my wife tells me she sees a BIG difference, and not just in the way I look!” — Gordon V. – Hunts Point, Seattle
“My wife was reaching that age, you know, going through the change. She was suffering terribly. The hot flashes, the night sweats, mood swings, the whole nine yards. It was destroying our relationship, but she was afraid to go for HRT, because she thought it was risky. But we heard about BHRT, and made an appointment, and are so glad we did. She’s been on the program for a few months now, and everything is back to normal!” — Jim and Stephie R. – Medina
“I’m a guy in my 40s, I go to the gym, but I was stuck, there was those last few pounds, and this gut around the middle that I just could not get rid of no matter what. A friend I know said I should get a hormone test. I did, and found out my testosterone was low. Since I started bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, I feel great, I look great, and I am getting the most out of my workouts again.” — Hugo G. – Mercer Island

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.
