Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) works by delivering synthetic hormones to supplement your natural hormone production. It’s a highly customized approach that dramatically enhances your quality of life.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy begins with lab testing to determine your current hormone production levels. This allows your practitioner to create a personalized treatment plan to balance your hormones.
There are numerous ways to receive supplemental hormones. Your practitioner helps you decide between injections, oral medications, patches, creams, or pellet therapy. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy uses synthetic hormones chemically identical to those produced within your body.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy requires time for your body to adjust; you need patience as you move through the process. It may be helpful to keep a written log of any changes you notice, including improvements and areas of concern.
Your practitioner can make adjustments to your bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program as needed. After each alteration, a period of adjustment helps to learn how your body responds.
You have the guidance and support of the Dragon Healthcare Services and Med Spa team as you navigate bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Once you reach the point where you’ve achieved improvement, it’s simply a manner of maintaining the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program that works for you.
