What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Miami?

BHRT is also known as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy. The Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy process utilizes the use of hormones that are identical on a molecular level with endogenous hormones in hormone replacement therapy. It may also be combined with blood and saliva testing of hormone levels, and the use of pharmacy compounding to obtain hormones in an effort to reach a targeted level of hormones in the body. BHRT can be used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. In women, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is most frequently used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. In men, it is commonly used to increase energy, vitality, and sexual function.

Who is a Good Candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Therapy ?

Most men and women experiencing symptoms of a hormonal imbalance in the body would benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy. Most men and women experiencing the effects of an imbalanced hormonal system are ideal candidates for treatment. However, the only way to know for sure whether you are a good candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is by scheduling an initial consultation and screening. Our Miami Shores Anti-aging clinic is located inside of the Medi-Station Urgent Care center on 9600 NE 2nd Ave.

Each hormone functions in a slightly different—but always complex—way in the body. But many of the symptoms for each hormone overlap with the others. It’s difficult to know which hormone might be the culprit of your current symptoms without testing.

Low T – Low Testosterone

Testosterone levels rise during puberty, peak during the late teen and early twenty’s. After age 30 or so, it’s normal for a man’s testosterone levels to decrease (approx. 2% per year) slightly every year. After 40 some men experience a 20% reduction in testosterone levels which may be followed by symptoms such as fatigue, low libido, decreased muscle mass and mental lethargy. However, these symptoms can easily be alleviated by restoring healthy testosterone levels with hormonal therapy. This requires a doctor’s evaluation and careful laboratory monitoring. Healthy Me Therapies will discuss your options of testosterone therapy replacement and together chose the best program for you.

Peri-Menopausal / Menopausal

Women usually endure many unnecessary challenges and symptoms with dropping levels of estrogen, progesterone and even testosterone. They also have so much to gain physically, emotionally and sexually with restoration of healthy hormone levels. After a comprehensive examination and lab work, Dr. Sanchez will determine the best dose and route for hormone therapy to maximize benefits and quality of life. Don’t suffer unnecessary when there is a solution. Let Healthy Me Medical Therapies be your partner to a better more fulfilled life.

Human Growth Hormone

Growth hormone is a special type of protein made in the brain by the pituitary gland, and it is responsible for more than just physical growth. While growth hormone deficiency in children can result in lack of growth, adults can also suffer from a lack of growth hormone that affects their bodies in other ways. HGH Replacement can benefit our muscles, bones, metabolism, sleep regulation and mental clarity. An examination, symptomology review and lab work will show if you are a candidate for HGH Treatment.

Hormone Pellet Therapy

Hormone Pellets are the newest “delivery system” of bioidentical hormones and are rapidly becoming the preferred method for many patients. Hormone pellets are tiny, highly compressed cylinders containing pure bioidentical hormones. During an in office visit, under local anesthesia, these pellets are placed under the skin using a simple procedure. These pellets (testosterone, progesterone, or estrogen) allow for a slow steady release of hormones, closely replicating the body’s normal physiological function. Usually 2 or 3 insertions are need during a 12 month period. This is the ideal Hormone Therapy technology, eliminating the “peaks and valleys” of other hormone delivery methods and is ideal for patients in today’s busy world.
