Why are bioidentical hormones used?
As men and women age, the levels of some key hormones in the body go down. These include estrogen, progesterone and testosterone and Growth Hormone. This can lead to certain symptoms. Some are very common to women who are past the age of having periods (menopause) and some of these are common to men. Some common effects of low hormones include:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Vaginal dryness
- Loss of interest in sex
- Pain during sex
- Problems sleeping
- Loss of energy
- Loss of muscle mass
- Weight gain
- Foggy thinking
- Mood changes
- Memory Loss
Benefits of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT):
Hormone fluctuations can cause mood swings due to hormonal interference with blood sugar and brain chemistry. Balanced hormones can remedy feelings of anger, anxiety, and depression.
Increased Muscle Mass:
A testosterone deficiency can occur in both men and women. Testosterone directly affects the building of muscle. If testosterone levels are too low muscle mass will decrease.
Muscle influences the burning of calories. When muscle is abundant, fat stores are tapped into in order to sustain energy. If estrogen is low for either a man or woman, the body attempts to conserve estrogen by storing extra fat. This is because fat contains estrogen. Adding regular amounts of estrogen to the body can decrease fat storage.
If hormone levels are decreased, then desire for sexual activity is also decreased. When hormones are restored to normal levels, libido is boosted.
Healthier Sleeping Patterns:
The body’s internal clock sets sleeping patterns and is located in the part of the brain known as the hypothalamus. Hormonal imbalances can interfere with signals in the hypothalamus and create disturbed sleep.
Fluctuations of hormones can cause blood sugar to not be processed properly, and this can cause feelings of fatigue. When hormones are balanced, the body can effectively produce energy to restore and increase vitality.
Higher Bone Density:
Estrogen and testosterone influence the way bones absorb calcium. If the bones cannot properly absorb calcium, they become weak, which leads to osteoporosis. Balanced hormones can regulate calcium absorption to keep bones healthy and strong.

Explaining Bioidentical Hormones
Bio-Identical Hormones are natural, plant-derived compounds that are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and soy, and are designed to replicate the same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally by our bodies. It may surprise you to know that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has been used successfully by patients since the 1930’s
Based on your hormone levels, Essential Pharmacy Compounding ( PCAb Accredited) a division of Kohll’s which specializes in compounding will individually tailor your bioidentical hormone regimen specifically designed for you by your practitioner.
Are Bioidentical Hormones Safer, More Effective than Synthetic Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are more appealing to the masses when dealing with menopause or andropause because they are derived naturally and our bodies can metabolize them properly. Another advantage of using bioidentical hormones is that they are specifically designed to match your individual hormonal needs – unlike synthetic hormones, which use a one-size-fits-all approach to symptom relief.
There is an overwhelmingly large body of evidence that supports the claim that bioidentical hormone therapy is safer and more effective than synthetic hormone replacement. However, it’s important to remember that no drug, supplement or herb is 100 percent safe – there is always a chance that you may experience an adverse reaction. That’s why it’s critical for women and men to consult with a hormone specialist before beginning any hormone therapy regimen, to safe-guard themselves from side effects.
Different Methods of Delivering BHRT:
- Pellets – Pellet therapy in particular has been known to help many people overcome the effects of hormonal imbalance. Placed under the skin, pellets release hormones into your body, which metabolizes testosterone or estrogen as needed. There are far fewer treatments per year, and your body adapts to the changes
- Transdermal Cream – Transdermal Cream therapy is most commonly prescribed therapy and has helped patients overcome the effects of hormonal imbalance. The prescribed dosage is rubbed onto the the skin and absorbed into the bloodstream.
- Sublingual Troches – A dosage commonly prescribed. The medication is a lozenge that dissolves in the mouth and absorbed into the bloodstream via through the cheek and gum.
Stop Guessing & Start Testing
To determine your hormonal needs, PMC thoroughly evaluate your symptoms using state-of-the-art diagnostic tests, such as, saliva, urine and/or blood tests to determine your hormone levels and your unique bioidentical hormonal needs. After starting a natural hormone replacement program, your practitioner will monitor and re-evaluate your hormone levels, meeting with you, to insure that they are maintained at their optimum balance.
