The Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Process

Do You Need Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement?

How do you know if you might need BHRT?  Typical symptoms of someone needing hormone therapy include generalized fatigue, mood swings, hot flashes, muscle loss, fat gain and sleeplessness.  The great appeal of bio-identical hormones is that they are natural and our bodies can metabolize them easily. Synthetic hormones, in contrast, are often “overkill” and can potentially produce multiple side effects including breast cancer and coronary artery disease.

An Individualized Approach to BHRT

At Sedona MediSpa, we have had great success with an individualized approach to BHRT. We begin with essential laboratory testing of a patient’s current hormone levels. We then prescribe  precise dosages of patient specific bio-identical hormones including estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and others.

Each of our clients is monitored carefully through regular follow-up visits and lab testing to ensure that she or he gets the symptom relief and benefits that come from optimal hormone replacement.

BHRT is available in various forms: creams, sublingual tablets or troches, subdermal pellets. Oral tablets and injections are available for some hormones.

  • Creams and Gels–least expensive and easy to titrate
  • Sublingual Troches or Triturate Tablets–little chance of exposing others to your BHRT
  • Pellets inserted under the skin–no daily dosing is required
  • BLA tablets–taken by mouth but still bypassing the liver

Bio-Identical Hormones

Bio-Identical hormones have been available for years, yet most medical practitioners are unschooled in their use.  We are well-versed in the detection of hormone deficiencies and the science of prescribing bio-identical hormones for both women and men.

Bio-identical hormones are plant-derived and formulated to replicate the same molecular structure as the hormones made by our own bodies. Drug companies can’t patent a plant-derived bio-identical product, so they have developed and market high cost synthetic hormones.
