Bioidentical Hormones Q & A

What is hormone replacement therapy?

Hormone replacement therapy refers to a natural treatment designed to supplement the hormones your body no longer produces enough of, such as testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen.

Hormone therapy can diminish or alleviate any associated symptoms, improve your quality of life, and restore hormonal balance.

Hormones can be administered as a topical gel, an intramuscular injection, or an implant, such as a pellet your provider carefully places in the fatty layer beneath your skin in your upper buttocks. The pellets secrete the replacement hormones that are absorbed into your bloodstream over time.

You might have hormonal imbalance as a result of certain medications and diseases, surgeries, aging, and other factors. Hormonal imbalance can lead to numerous symptoms and complications for men and women, such as fatigue, irritability and mood disorders, poor sleep, sexual dysfunction, low libido, rapid weight gain, and hot flashes. Cosmetic symptoms can also arise due to low reproductive hormones, such as dry skin, wrinkles and fine lines, and loss of volume, elasticity, and collagen.

What are bioidentical hormones?

Grace Family Health offers bioidentical hormone therapy involving hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the ones your body produces naturally. Bioidentical hormones are a safer and more natural alternative than the hormones that are synthesized in a lab or derived from horse urine. 

Bioidentical hormones are a popular choice because they come from natural plant compounds (yams and soybeans). Bioidentical hormones work in the exact same way as your natural hormones.

With bioidentical hormone therapy, your Grace Family Health provider can use a simple in-office blood test to accurately and safely measure your total reproductive hormone levels, including the hormones produced by your body and the bioidentical hormones you’ve taken.

What advantages does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offer?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers many benefits, such as:

  • Protection from arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease
  • Protective qualities for uterine, ovarian, breast, and prostate cancer
  • Symptom relief
  • Improves dry skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and other cosmetic concerns
  • Increases bone density
  • Improves cardiovascular health

Bioidentical hormone therapy is typically administered as pellets, which offer more consistent individualized hormone levels over longer time periods. For around four to five months in men and around three to four months in women, pellets deliver healthy levels of hormones, so you don’t have to think about it. 

Bioidentical hormones could make a significant difference for cosmetic concerns like loss of volume and dry, wrinkled skin.

Many thyroid disorders are also associated with an imbalance of reproductive hormones, so bioidentical hormone therapy can also be helpful.
