Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT)

What are Bio-Identical Hormones?

Bio: of or relating to life

Identical: similar in every detail; exactly alike

Bio-identical hormones are hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones naturally made in the human body.  Derived from naturally occurring sources (including vegetables such as the Chinese Yam), Bio-Identical hormones are natural hormones as opposed to synthetic hormones (which are made by chemical syntheses).

Is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Safer or More Effective than Synthetic Hormones?

There are two crucial factors of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement that make this natural therapy more effective and safer than synthetic hormones.

Bio-Identical Hormones are more effective and safer because they are:

  1. Derived naturally
  2. Customizable

Because Bio-identical Hormones (testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone) are derived from natural sources, our bodies can metabolize them more efficiently. Bio-identical hormone regimens are also customizable, which means that they can be modified to your specific health profile and your individual hormonal needs. Unlike synthetic hormones, which are formulated with a one-size-fits-all approach, bio-identical hormone replacement allows for a more tailor-fit hormonal regimen that is best for you.

Maintaining optimal health is our main priority at Ageless Medicine of the Palm Beaches; therefore, safety is equally as important as effectiveness when it comes to our Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement therapies. Because no drug, natural supplement or treatment is 100% safe on its own, it is crucial for men and women to consult with a hormone specialist before beginning any hormone treatment. Ageless Medicine’s physicians conduct extensive medical testing to assess your health profile before customizing your Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).

How Are Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapies Administered?

Ageless Medicine’s Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapies are administered by injection or by pellet therapy.  Ageless Medicine’s Bio-Identical Pellet Therapy uses hormones derived from natural plant sources to replicate your body’s normal hormonal levels. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy with pellet implants is extremely effective because the implants, which are placed under the skin, steadily release small doses of hormones, providing optimal and stable therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of therapy – which can produce inconsistent hormone levels and “roller coaster” side effects,  pellet implantation is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without any erratic symptoms.

Like all of our Bio-Identical Hormone Therapies, Pellet Therapy is ideal for patients wanting the benefits of a natural hormone, without the drawbacks of a synthetic.
