      BHRT for Women

      A woman’s hormones are her best friends. They help regulate her metabolism, energy, musculature, bone density, circadian rhythm, libido, and many other functions. Imbalanced levels have synergistic effects on one another, and on a woman’s overall health and well-being.

      Although thyroid, insulin, and cortisol hormone imbalances can strike any time, estrogen loss is usually more predictable. For most women it begins in the 40s, when they experience perimenopause, and eventually, menopause challenges like:

      • Anxiety
      • Breast tenderness
      • Depression
      • Fibroids
      • Headaches
      • Insomnia
      • Low libido
      • Mood swings
      • Reduced bone density
      • Sugar cravings
      • Vaginal dryness
      • Weight gain

      Because decades worth of studies have demonstrated that traditional hormone therapy increases a woman’s risk of breast cancer, Dr. Truong delivers only natural, metabolism-friendly Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Bioidentical hormones are sourced from plants that have a molecular structure identical to that of the body’s natural hormone make up.

      Whether it’s a deficiency or excess that’s disrupting your hormonal harmony, BHRT reestablishes optimal balance without damaging your metabolism with foreign substances.

      To optimize your synergistic hormone levels, functions, and life joy, schedule a discrete consultation at the Rehabilitation Center today by contacting us here.

      What is hormone replacement therapy for women?

      Hormone replacement therapy is the long term process of testing a woman’s hormone levels, then optimizing them to relieve her symptoms and enable the lifestyle of her choice. Because levels fluctuate periodically, optimization requires periodic re-testing and prescription tweaking.

      Manufactured from soybeans and yams, BHRT molecules are biologically identical to human hormones. Unlike mainstream synthetic hormones, they can be tailored to your specific imbalance without further upsetting your balance of:

      • DHEA – increases mental clarity and energy levels; stabilizes mood
      • Estrogen – instrumental in bone formation, blood clotting, vaginal wall integrity and lubrication; an imbalance can cause vaginal dryness and mood swings
      • Progesterone – the precursor of estrogen and testosterone that stabilize your mood, and brain function while improving sexual response
      • Testosterone – maintains muscle mass, cardiovascular health, libido and vaginal health

      Because your levels of these critical hormones are constantly in flux, you’ll need Dr. Truong to monitor and tweak them regularly.

      Hormone level testing

      We recommend that you undergo routine testing to account for environmental and lifestyle factors that can cause hormone levels to fluctuate. Dr. Truong will use one of the following testing methods to test your hormone levels:

      • Blood test: a blood sample will be sent to a lab for further analysis; this test may not detect sex hormones bound to carrier proteins in the bloodstream
      • Saliva test: proven to be especially accurate at measuring DHEA and testosterone levels
      • Urine test: this FDA approved hormone test measures your baseline follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)

      How to get on hormone replacement therapy with Dr. Truong

      After determining your levels and your unique supplement prescription, Dr. Truong will discuss with you various advantages of hormone delivery methods for your unique imbalance and lifestyle:

      • Injections – delivered directly to blood stream; must be administered in office
      • Oral pills or capsules – must pass through liver before entering bloodstream
      • Pellets inserted under the skin – time-release hormones last 3 months
      • Topical gels or creams – must be applied vaginally every night; amount can be controlled

      Throughout your treatment, your hormone levels will be monitored to ensure that you receive the doses your body needs at any given time.
