Bioidentical Hormones Q&A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are manufactured hormones that are identical to the hormones your body produces. The team at Real Health Medical provides bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) for men and women who have suboptimal hormone levels. For example, they offer BHRT for:

  • Testosterone
  • Progesterone 
  • Estradiol
  • Estriol
  • DHEA
  • HCG
  • Growth Hormone
  • Thyroid T3 and T4
  • Desiccated thyroid 

In addition to BHRT, the team also provides hCG and peptide "super hormone" therapy to enhance your health. Peptides are amino acid compounds that your body uses to build proteins.

Peptide "super" hormone therapy includes the following:

  • CJC — a combination of amino acids that boosts growth factor production
  • Ipamorelin — a peptide that stimulates growth hormone production
  • Melanotan II — synthetic hormone to treat erectile dysfunction
  • Sermorelin — man-made hormone to stimulate the pituitary gland
  • BPC — growth factor that supports healing response
  • Tesamorelin — synthetic hormone that reduces excess abdominal fat
  • HGH growth hormone — regulates body composition and cell regeneration

The team at Real Health Medical uses extensive laboratory tests of your blood, urine, and saliva and partners with specialty labs like the DUTCH hormone lab. 

Who can benefit from BHRT?

Men and women of all ages can develop hormonal imbalances and benefit from BHRT. While the hormonal fluctuations that women experience as they reach menopause are well known, men can also experience similar symptoms due to low testosterone (low T) or estrogen dominance. Men and women can also experience thyroid hormone imbalances or autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto's disease.

Some of the common signs of hormonal imbalances include:

  • Weight gain
  • Lost muscle mass
  • Lost bone density
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Irritability
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Brain fog
  • Memory issues
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Hair loss
  • Intolerance to heat or cold

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, the team at Real Health Medical can determine if you have a hormonal imbalance and effectively address conditions like low-T, menopause, low thyroid, and adrenal insufficiency. 

What should I expect during BHRT?

The team at Real Health medical customizes BHRT to address your hormonal needs, goals, metabolism, and age. 

Depending on your needs, your provider might prescribe hormone pellet implants, sublingual tablets, creams, or injections. They monitor your hormone levels and symptoms throughout your treatment, adjusting your prescription as necessary to enhance your health.

The team often combines BHRT with other individual anti-aging and detoxification protocols. In addition to hormonal and nutritional testing, they offer heavy metal (lead, aluminum, and mercury) and environmental chemical toxicity screenings and tests to look for signs of oxidative stress and DNA damage. The team also checks for cancer markers and circulating tumor cells for early cancer detection.

It is a FACT that the longer you maintain youthful and balanced levels of hormones, the longer and better you live. Call Real Health Medical or schedule an appointment online today to learn more about bioidentical hormones and how they can help you improve your wellness.
