What is BHRT?
BHRT (bio-identical hormone replacement therapy) is designed to replace what the body can no longer produce.
Bio identical hormones are non-synthetic, plant-based hormones that are identical biologically to human hormone. The best analogy to differentiate bio identical from synthetic hormones is to look at the hormones and the receptors they activate (hundreds of thousands in our bodies) as a lock and key. The hormone is the key and the receptors they work upon are the locks. Bio-identical hormones fit perfectly in the lock, and unlock all of the beneficial effects of hormones, and when dosed properly, have minimal to no side effects. Synthetic hormones, however, fit in the lock, but do not turn the lock and release many untoward side effects.
Our bio-identical hormone pellet method is one of the most widely studied, effective and safest methods of natural Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) available.
Hormone Replacement (BHRT) for Men
It is a perfectly normal part of life for testosterone in men to diminish over the years. While it is more common in older men, middle-aged men can also experience the decline of testosterone, or what is also referred to as Andropause, the male version of menopause. Low testosterone, or “Low-T”, can lead to a variety of health issues such as weight gain, muscle loss, erectile dysfunction, hair loss or thinning hair, and can increase more serious health concerns such as heart disease. Testosterone also affects bone density, fluid balance, cholesterol profiles and can impact brain functions such as mood, cognitive functions and energy levels.
Using hormone replacement (BHRT) is the safe and preferred way by providers and patients to restore the imbalances experienced with Andropause. It is a natural and effective way to replenish men’s quality of life. Men have reported a wide-range of benefits from using BHRT unlike reports where male patients are using synthetic hormone supplements.
Men using BHRT can benefit from:
- Increased mental & physical energy
- Improved muscle strength
- Decrease in body fat
- Improved sex drive
- Decreased anxiety
- Lower blood pressure & cholesterol
- Increase in hair growth
- And many more!
“At 46, I feel like I’m 26. Having my mind set and just the feeling of it has been astronomical. Everything is better. When I started this, I had lost 30 pounds, basically transferred over to lean muscle mass. I don’t take any of the blood pressure medicine anymore, my blood pressure has gone down. I’m not shortness of breath, I’m not gasping for air. I couldn’t get through the day without sucking down massive amounts of coffee and caffeine and now, all I drink is water and I am just pumped.”
“This program is definitely helping me, it’s given me the motivation and the tools to make my body feel better.”
Hormone Replacement (BHRT) for Women
At all ages, women’s hormones are constantly working together in harmony and if one hormone is diminishing, it can cause a variety of issues and cause your body to be imbalanced. Women not only suffer from hormonal imbalances due to menopause, but they can also experience imbalances due to birth control, diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), or by pregnancy.
There are different types of hormones in women that can be impacted by different factors. Cortisol is produced in the adrenal gland by stress. High Cortisol production can cause change in menstrual cycle or change in libido, and could cause depression or anxiety. Estrogen and progesterone are referred to as pregnancy hormones because they directly impact development of the fetus. Low levels of progesterone can lead to infertility issues and missed, or late periods. Low levels of progesterone can put women’s bodies in a ‘high estrogen’ state which can lead to endometriosis and breast or ovarian cancer. Low estrogen levels can cause abnormal periods, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, urinary tract infections and infertility.
Women using BHRT can benefit from:
- Decreased levels of anxiety & depression
- Increased hair growth
- Decrease in body fat
- Improved vaginal dryness
- Increased mood & energy levels
- Improvement in headaches
- Less hot flashes
- Improvement in dry skin
- And many more!
“I started menopause and was on 3-4 different prescriptions to help with the night sweats and being mad at everybody for no reason. Since I’ve been on the hormones, I don’t have any of those prescriptions anymore, it’s very rare that I have night sweats.”
“This therapy has helped me so much where it’s helped with my menopause that I didn’t want to stay away from everybody. There are no more night sweats, no more mood swings. It gives you the energy you need just to get through the day. You’ll have the energy to want to cook dinner for your family. It really helps so much.”
“It gave me more energy, my hot flashes went away. My memory is so good, I’m able to memorize scripts now. My husband was impressed and he also started the treatment.”
“Since I have stated my hormone replacement therapy I am feeling better than I have in over a year. I love the friendly team and Doctor. I was able to have the pellets placed on my very first appointment. I was in and out of there in a very efficient manner. I love that I am feeling more like myself!!”

How does our BHRT program work?
We understand that every patient is different and we tailor our program based off of your needs. While there is synthetic hormone replacement options available, studies find that using these synthetic hormone supplements can lead to higher risk of developing heart disease or breast cancer. We only use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy because it is made of natural ingredients and does not have negative side effects that can lead to disease or cancer. Our physician requires each patient get certain lab work performed based of off patient’s symptoms in order to see what hormone imbalances are present. The appropriate, all-natural hormonal supplements will be prescribed by our physician based off lab results and are later inserted in the body.
*Individual results may vary.
