Dr. Anita Petruzzelli and Dr. Tatiana Fleischman have established hormone doctors specializing in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Find out if you have high testosterone or low testosterone levels, progesterone deficits, or estrogen variations.

Nonetheless, if you are suffering from signs of aging or more diagnosed conditions such as andropause, menopause, perimenopause, thyroid disorder, or adrenal fatigue we will create a hormone treatment solution intended exclusively for you.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) vs. Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Initially, let’s establish… what are hormones? Hormones are the body’s energetic chemical messengers. While journeying through the bloodstream all the way to the tissues and organs, hormones influence to the function of mood, sexual functioning, metabolism, growth, and development. Even minor changes in natural hormone levels can increase outcomes.

When natural hormones become unstable, often due to the innate aging process, an accrual of issues can arise. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a tried and true solution to natural hormone imbalance.

Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is founded on the use of synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones, such as progestin, estrogen, nandrolone, and methyl, are contrived, chemically- made hormones that are patented. Therefore, therapy for all patients is undifferentiated and not adapted to their specific needs.

On the other hand, are bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are all natural hormones derived from plant sources and designed to have the matching molecular configuration as the natural hormones made by the body. This identical structure assures that bioidentical hormones adapt to the body’s receptors flawlessly, presenting the same practical sequence as endogenous hormones, promoting better-personalized hormone treatment outcomes, and diminishing the risk of side effects.

Selecting a more natural hormone program like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (compared to a synthetic hormone replacement therapy) presents patients with an improved overall bioidentical hormone experience and fewer reactions and only mild side effects. Some of the highest evident benefits of using bioidentical hormones include:

What Causes Hormonal Imbalance?

Once hormone levels become imbalanced, as a result of the aging process, toxic exposures, or a health malady, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a realistic solution for replacing hormones that the body is no longer able to producing on its own.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

Women that have gone through perimenopause or menopause often experience a multitude of uncomfortable symptoms correlated with hormone imbalance. Throughout these transitions, hormones can range substantially leading to high testosterone in women (in addition to low testosterone in women), estrogen dominance, progesterone deficits, and thyroid symptoms in women. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can aid in reestablishing natural hormone balance and women can expect some very positive and dramatic benefits such as:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men

With men, the signs of hormone imbalance often transpire gradually and are typically dismissed as indications of aging. The most prevalent form of hormone deficiency is low testosterone in men. Symptoms of low testosterone in men can show as hair loss, low libido, fatigue, and muscle loss. These noticeable signs of low testosterone in men begin to compile around midlife, depriving men of vitality and impairing health. Men are largely influenced by any drop in testosterone levels that are an outcome of the aging process, but men can also face comparable symptoms due to fluctuations in cortisol (the stress hormone) or thyroid hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy presents men with the chance to repair natural hormone levels and revel in numerous health and quality of life benefits, including:

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Patients continue to confirm substantial improvements to their health and quality of living in the wake of bioidentical hormone treatment plans. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy addresses a multitude of inevitable conditions of aging, such as menopause, andropause, perimenopause and the accompanying symptoms which can include hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, and fatigue. People living with various forms of hormone imbalance such as thyroid disorder, insomnia, mood swings, and hair loss, can benefit and take advantage of a comprehensive treatment plan created by a hormone doctor that is specially trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy techniques.

Bioidentical Hormone Pellet Therapy

The most effective form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is through pellet therapy. This method involves implantation of bioidentical hormone pellets into soft tissue under the skin through a minimally invasive, fifteen minute, in-office procedure. Bioidentical hormone pellets are comparable to the size of a tic-tac and made of bioidentical testosterone or bioidentical estrogen and a natural cholesterol binder. They are typically implanted under the belt line of the upper buttocks, just behind the hip. The bioidentical pellets are designed with a precise density and hardness, so they dissolve gradually over a 3 to 4 month period. As the pellets dissolve, hormones are securely absorbed into your system in a way that closely mimics the body’s natural release of hormones.

Other bioidentical hormone methods, such as hormone creams or pills, cannot compare with the effectiveness of pellet therapy for treatment of menopausal symptoms, low libido, fatigue, and several other symptoms caused by hormonal imbalance. Even though there are many intricacies in managing bioidentical hormone therapy, bioidentical pellet therapy is the cornerstone of Preventative Wellness MD.

Optimal levels of testosterone can provide benefits such as:

Bioidentical testosterone pellets have been used since 1938, and serve as a convenient way to provide the body with a steady-state of the required bioidentical hormone. Bioidentical pellets in women characteristically last 3-4 months; in men, 4-5 months.
