Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or just bioidentical hormone therapy (BHT), is a treatment that focuses on replacing hormones your body needs to function. As you age or as a result of an underlying medical condition, your endocrine system may not sustain hormone levels necessary to ensure your health and wellness.

The team at ANWAN Wellness Medical Center uses hormone pellets, which contain hormones that are made from plants and mimic the hormones your body produces naturally.

How does bioidentical hormone therapy work?

Bioidentical hormones are small pellets that your ANWAN Wellness Medical Center provider implants just under the surface of your skin. The pellets deliver a steady dose of hormones into your bloodstream to rebalance your levels and help relieve common symptoms of a hormone imbalance. Therapy also restores your sense of well-being and ensures your body is functioning properly.

Depending on your needs, your physician may recommend one or more hormones as part of your therapy, including:

Estrogen

Estrogen is important for boosting the production of serotonin to stabilize your mood. This hormone also helps protect women from osteoporosis, heart disease, and other chronic, age-related health issues.

Progesterone

Progesterone is important for women because it prevents the overgrowth of uterine tissue and reduces their risk of developing breast cancer.

Testosterone

Testosterone is a vital component of well-being in men. This hormone stabilizes mood and provides mental clarity. Low testosterone levels can also increase a man’s risk for Alzheimer’s disease and prostate disorders.

In women, testosterone is important for regulating sex drive, providing mental clarity, and maintaining muscle mass and tone.

Thyroid hormones

The thyroid hormones, T3 and T4, are instrumental in regulating the body’s metabolism. These hormones are important for boosting energy levels and controlling weight.

In addition to pellet therapy, the ANWAN Wellness Medical Center team offers bioidentical hormones through lotions, creams, gels, and oral capsules.

When should I consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Both men and women may be candidates for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as they get older, especially when women transition to menopause — the time when their periods stop for good.

The ANWAN Wellness Medical Center staff can evaluate your hormone levels through a simple blood test to determine if BHT is right for you. They may request hormone testing if you have symptoms like:

  • Hot flashes
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Unexplained weight changes

You may also benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy if you have brittle bones due to osteoporosis and experience frequent bone breaks or fractures.
