What is HRT?
Hormone replacement is the science of restoring and replenishing male and female hormones to youthful levels. As hormone levels decline, so do physical and mental capabilities. All the maladies of aging; osteoporosis, muscle atrophy, sleep disorders, memory loss, hot flashes, lack of libido, loss of lean body mass, can be attributed to the waning production of hormones. Replenishment and balancing of the hormones to optimal levels may help to alleviate these age related symptoms. The ultimate goal of natural hormone replacement is to imitate as closely as possible, the hormones that are naturally produced by the human body. In our natural hormone management program, we believe that the best way to safely replenish the body’s hormone level to optimum is to check these levels through blood work. We have tried to select a program based on scientific literature, and with the ability to be reproduced.
It’s not only hormones we balance, but Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), should be about understanding that this is a lifestyle change. Hormones, Diet & Exercise, Toxins, Supplements, and Spiritual Peace are what we promote. This is circular, not linear, and we will plan this out during your visit.
Benefits of BHRT
BHRT is typically used as people age and hormone levels drop, particularly for women who are in perimenopause or menopause. It’s used to increase the levels of the hormones that have dropped and improve moderate to severe menopause symptoms, including:
- hot flashes
- night sweats
- mood changes
- memory loss
- weight gain
- sleep issues
- loss of interest in sex or pain during sex
In addition to helping with symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may also reduce your risk for diabetes, tooth loss, and cataracts. There’s some evidence that it can help improve skin thickness, hydration, and elasticity, and even reduce wrinkles.
For those with cancer who have undergone treatments that affect their estrogen levels, BHRT has been shown to be effective in improving their general well-being and quality of life. In one study, people with cancer who underwent BHRT found relief from treatment-related symptoms such as migraines, incontinence, low libido, and insomnia. The study also found their recurrence rate of breast cancer was no higher than average.
Side effects and risks of BHRT
While the FDA has approved some preparations of bioidentical estradiol and progesterone, it hasn’t approved any compounded bioidentical hormones. There are claims that bioidentical hormones are safer and more effective than traditional HRT because they’re identical in structure to those produced in the body. But these claims have not been confirmed by large-scale, reputable studies. The FDA urges caution when using compounded products.
How to take BHRT
BHRT comes in a variety of forms including:
- implanted pellets
Talk to Dr. Stasney about which form may be best for you and your lifestyle. You’ll likely need to be monitored regularly once you begin BHRT to evaluate your body’s response. However, the FDA cautions against monitoring hormone levels via blood and saliva tests. These only tell you your hormone levels at a moment in time and can vary widely throughout the day.
The FDA recommends that if you do choose any form of hormone therapy that you use the lowest dose that produces results. The FDA also says you should use it for the shortest length of time possible.
BHRT may be an option to help people who have symptoms associated with hormone levels that are low or otherwise unbalanced. However, there are some side effects and risks associated with BHRT that are serious and you must discuss this with your doctor. Many women should avoid using any hormone replacement. If you do decide to undergo BHRT, you should use the lowest dose that proves effective for the shortest amount of time possible.
