WHY CONSIDER (BHRT) BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY?

 In Anti-Aging

Hormones are some of the most important molecules that we have in our body and are responsible for making our body function at its peak.  As we age and deal with stress and the toxins in our environment, many people become hormone deficient, and therefore their performance declines and aging sets in. Indeed, we now believe that most chronic illnesses can be directly linked to lifestyle, diet, and loss of hormone balance. The good news is that now we have the ability and knowledge to measure and treat hormone deficiencies and restore a persons hormonal levels to that of a young person, bringing with it a new vitality, sense of well being, and ability to fight the processes that lead to aging and chronic illness. 

BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPYWe know that both men and women make the same hormones, just in different amounts and so how you treat people must be tailored to not only your sex but also to the individual person as needs will vary person to person.

Current traditional medicine still seems to be focused on reactive treatment once an illness occurs but does very little to prevent the onset of that illness in the first place, and not enough concern is given to what the side effects of the medicines given for chronic illnesses are on the body. Many deplete or affect essential vitamins and minerals, which in turn can impact the body directly or through decreased function of your hormones. Dont get me wrong, traditional medical practices remain essential in maintaining good health, but we now have the ability to move beyond reactive medicine and into proactive preventive medicine, maintaining a vital essence into our advanced years.

As a Physician Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and in OB/GYN, my goal is to restore those hormonal levels to the same level you had as a young person, but to do so in a responsible way and using sound medical practices by measuring accurately what that individuals real needs are, prescribing high quality, appropriate hormone therapy and then maintaining vigilant follow up. It is important to know that the hormones need to be balanced to be safe. In estrogen replacement for example there are 5 different estrogens that must be balanced within a womans body, and commercial products only utilize one type and therefore their use will lead to an estrogen imbalance which can be dangerous for the patient. The days of just prescribing a patient some estrogen and seeing them in a year are long gone.

I now use only bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for treatment of my patients. That means the hormones I use are identical in chemical structure to the ones that your body has always used. Numerous studies have shown that using synthetic hormones may cause or stimulate cancers and when one looks at how hormones work, are synthesized and then degraded within the body, it is not surprising. The body really does not know what a synthetic hormone (like Premarin ® or Provera®) is and does not have the ability to properly utilize it or very importantly, to remove it in a timely fashion from the body. With use of bio-identical hormones the body recognizes the hormone, is able to get maximum benefit from it, and when it has served its purpose, to degrade and remove it from the body quickly, just like it did when you were young. Many studies have now shown that use of bio-identical hormones may actually be protective against cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimers, and many other chronic illnesses.
