BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE OPTIONS OFFERED AT REJUVALIFE
Bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to those the body produces. While hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone naturally decrease with age, the use of bio-identical hormones in LA and Beverly Hills, as part of a prescribed hormone replacement therapy, can help to restore hormones to more youthful levels. This can result in more energy, better memory, a healthier heart, stronger bones, and a more youthful glow.
Rather than choosing just one hormone, at Rejuvalife Vitality Clinic, we tailor a treatment plan with multiple hormone selections at highly precise dosages based on measurements we make ahead of time about your current hormone levels and symptoms. This so-called compounded bioidentical hormone therapy helps patients rid themselves of the issues that make them feel and look older than they are.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
These artificial hormones are biologically identical to the hormones your body makes on its own. This allows doctors like Dr. Berger to replenish low levels and help correct overly high levels of certain hormones with compounded bioidentical hormones, including the following.
Estrogen is present in women in three forms: estradiol, estrone, and estriol. Menopause hormone therapy that uses bio-identical forms of these hormones can treat menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and vaginal dryness, improve psychological well-being, and reduce the incidence of coronary artery disease and osteoporosis.
Progesterone helps to balance the effects of estrogen. It relieves hormone-related mood swings, deters weight gain, helps restore libido, protects against breast fibrocystic and osteoporosis, and more.
Pregnenolone is an important human hormone that serves many purposes in the body. As a supplement, pregnenolone improves memory, reduces stress, decreases arthritis inflammation, and improves mood.
The main function of melatonin is to regulate the sleep-wake cycle. With advancing age, melatonin production often decreases and the natural body rhythm is interrupted by insomnia. At Rejuvalife, we utilize melatonin therapy to provide our patients with more restful sleep, stronger immunity, and reduced stress.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bioidentical Hormones
Am I a candidate for BHRT?
BHRT has proven to help many people with issues from migraines, insomnia, and sexual drive to even skin hydration and elasticity. However, there are certain patients that should not use BHRT such as women who have experienced breast or ovarian cancers. During your consultation, you should be prepared to discuss your medical history, including any medications you are currently taking as well as recent tobacco use. All of our consultations are completely confidential in order to ensure the patient is fully informed.
Why choose Dr. Berger for BHRT?
As one of the most respected anti-aging experts practicing in the Southland, Dr. Berger offers assistance with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. His holistic approach to hormone replacement therapy involves both Western medical training and Eastern philosophy to achieve exceptional results in anti-aging and body regeneration and rejuvenation.
Are there any effects after undergoing BHRT?
There is a risk of side effects after undergoing BHRT. These can include weight gain, bloating, mood swings, acne, and fatigue. Side effects occur as your body is responding and adjusting to the increase in certain hormones. Benefits from undergoing BHRT should be felt within a few weeks and full effects can be felt in three to six months. As with any hormone replacement therapy, there is the possibility of increased risks of blood clots, stroke, gallbladder disease, and breast cancer. It is imperative that you discuss your medical history and needs with Dr. Berger before undergoing Bioidentical Hormone Therapy.
