What to Know about Bio-Identical Hormones

Posted January 15, 2018 in Anti-Aging Medicine, Hormone Replacement Therapy

When looking into hormone replacement therapy, you may be wondering where the hormones come from. Like anything else you put in your body, you may be wondering if the hormones used are anything like the ones that you already have in your body. Dr. Andre Berger, a Beverly Hills anti-aging expert, prefers to take the more natural and holistic approach when it comes to anti-aging medicine. Keep reading to learn more about bio-identical hormones and how they are used for hormone replacement therapy.

What are Bio-Identical Hormones?

Bio-Identical Hormones are hormones that are synthesized to resemble the hormones that women create in their bodies on a molecular level. While they are not found this way in nature, they are simply scientifically adjusted to match the hormones we already have. These hormones are sourced from nature and adjusted in a lab versus being created in a lab like other hormones.

Addressing Aging With BHRT

The aging process can be taxing on the body, leaving behind physical, mental and emotional side effects. With the use of bio-identical hormones, you may make a comeback and feel like yourself again. With BHRT, it may counteract low energy levels, decreased libido, weight gain and improve your overall wellbeing. Using bio-identical hormones that resemble your own, you can do hormone therapy the natural way.

Checking Candidacy for BHRT

Dr. Berger believes in thorough medical testing and analyzing a patient’s medical history before starting a patient on any anti-aging treatment plan. This includes lab testing as well as having a private, one-on-one session with Dr. Berger to discuss your goals and overall health condition. After your assessment is finished, Dr. Berger will discuss your treatment options with you. Overall, Dr. Berger only recommends treatment plans that will address the patient as a whole; making you a healthier person inside and out.
