Plant-based Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for hormone-related transitions can be extremely beneficial for the alleviation of debilitating symptoms, as well as promote optimal health. Patients report feeling significantly better in weeks with vitality, sleep, mental clarity, and balanced mood restored. BHRT can be used short term to address menopausal issues, as well as long term to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, heart issues, and inflammatory conditions.
Perimenopause and menopause are natural life changes with the average age of 50-52 and range of 37-55 years old. For most women, this begins in their 40’s. Surgical menopause, a hysterectomy, where both ovaries have been removed induces sudden and total menopause. The perimenopausal period is a transitional time where hormone levels fluctuate prior to when women completely stop menstruating. A woman may notice an irregularity in her period which is no longer an exact 28-day cycle. This can be adjusted and stabilized through BHRT or oral botanical therapies.
Menopause can be challenging with debilitating symptoms of fatigue, hot flashes, night sweats, migraines, rapid heartbeats; joint and muscle pain, insomnia, poor memory, mood changes with depression, anxiety and irritability, breast tenderness, vaginal atrophy with dryness, itching, bleeding, painful intercourse, decreased libido; urinary frequency, urgency, and incontinence with increased susceptibility to infection such as UTI’s (urinary tract infections).
Once a woman has gone through a full 12 months without a period, she is considered to be postmenopausal. It is important to note that any vaginal spotting or bleeding after that time is considered abnormal and should be evaluated by a healthcare provider as this can be a symptom of endometrial cancer.
We can test for hormone levels and begin treating you with BHRT that is identical to the biology of your body. Symptoms can be alleviated within weeks. BHRT is a custom-made formulation derived from soy or wild yam and specifically prepared for each individual patient. This can include DHEA, pregnenolone, estrogen, progesterone, and/or testosterone. BHRT can provide symptom relief, protective benefits, and decrease the risk of osteoporosis as well as enhance long-term quality of life. Progesterone supports getting into a deep relaxing sleep. Estrogen mitigates vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and restores energy, memory, and cognition. Testosterone enhances libido and can reduce the risk of osteoporosis.. Estriol, a weak estrogen can be used vaginally to reduce muscle atrophy, reduce dryness, restore urinary flow and reduce UTIs and interstitial cystitis.
Women are usually on BHRT for 2 years for menopause. Other natural therapies as well as diet and exercise can be used in addition to BHRT. Risks of osteoporosis, heart disease, and history of cancer can be evaluated. You can be on a safe, comprehensive treatment plan. For example, if you have a history of breast cancer, you can take herbal phytoestrogens that bind to estrogen receptor sites and can be breast protective. You can take a master female herb that stimulates the release of progesterone from the brain. You can do cellular, immune, and peptide therapies.
We work with patients that are perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal. We also work with patients with premenstrual syndrome. We work with patients that are in remission with female cancers such as breast cancer. We work with the elderly who have issues with chronic UTIs, interstitial cystitis, and vaginal dryness. We work with patients short-term and long term addressing their needs with individualized treatment plans. We treat osteoporosis, menopause, and many other women’s health issues.
In closing, Oprah Winfrey says menopause caught her off guard. In The Oprah Magazine Oprah states, she felt “out of kilter” and had “issues” for two years that she suspected were hormonal. Winfrey went to a doctor who specializes in bioidentical hormone therapy who informed her that her “hormonal tank was empty” and gave her a prescription for BHRT. “After one day on BHRT, I felt the veil lift,” Oprah Winfrey writes. “After three days, the sky was bluer, my brain was no longer fuzzy, my memory was sharper. I was literally singing and had a skip in my step, as the fatigue lifted.’ Oprah reports, ‘BHRT has made a big improvement in how I feel and function.’
