Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Loosely defined, bioidentical hormones are synthesized drugs delivered in various formats, and that are identical in molecular structure to hormones found in your body in natural form. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is considered a more “natural” approach to treatment as they act in the body just the same as the natural hormones we produce. They are not altered in form, are typically compounded by private compounding pharmacies, or available in FDA-regulated pharmaceutical manufacturers.
At Seaside Medical Practice in Santa Monica, each program is as unique as our patients, with a custom tailored program made specifically for you. They include hormones such as different estrogen combinations, Levothyroxine/lithothyronine combination, growth hormone, testosterone and DHEA to name a few. Treatable conditions range from premenstrual syndrome, menopause, fatigue, testosterone deficiency, muscle enhancement, low thyroid state and relative growth hormone deficiency.
With over 10 years experience treating thousands of hormone patients in our Santa Monica practice, we can reliably say this method of therapy creates positive health outcomes in a relatively short period of time.
If you’re considering becoming a patient, consider all your options, learn from others, read scientific articles, discuss them with your medical provider. Most importantly, go to someone who has knowledge, experience and compassion to be able to offer you the best and safest clinical outcomes.
