FACPE, CIME, and his clinical team at Regenerative Medical Group (RMG) in Orange, California, dedicate themselves to treating hormone imbalances in both women and men.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

The hormones used in BHRT are identical in chemical structure to the hormones that are naturally produced by the body. They are derived from natural sources, such as soybeans or yams, and are made to match the exact molecular structure of the hormones that the body produces. This makes them different from traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which uses synthetic hormones that may not have the same molecular structure as the hormones that the body produces.

BHRT is typically administered in the form of creams, gels, or pellets that are applied to the skin or inserted under the skin. The hormones are absorbed into the bloodstream and then travel to the various organs and tissues in the body where they are needed.

The specific hormones that are used in BHRT vary depending on the individual's needs, but they may include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and/or dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). These hormones are used to replace the hormones that are no longer being produced by the body in sufficient quantities.

It is important to note that BHRT is not suitable for everyone and it is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider before starting the therapy. Like all hormone replacement therapies, BHRT has potential risks and benefits, and a healthcare provider will be able to determine if it is appropriate for you based on your individual health history and symptoms.

In summary, Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment that aims to replace hormones that are no longer being produced by the body in sufficient quantities, by using hormones that are identical in chemical structure to the hormones that are naturally produced by the body. These hormones are typically administered in the form of creams, gels, or pellets that are applied to the skin or inserted under the skin. Consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is important before starting BHRT as it has potential risks and benefits that should be evaluated on an individual basis.
