Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, is a kind of hormone therapy that uses all natural hormones that are biologically identical to the hormones naturally produced by your body. Conventional hormone treatments use synthetic hormones, but this isn’t the case with BHRT. The main advantage of using BHRT is that the dose is made specifically for the patient. That is to say that each patient gets a specific blend of hormones that their body needs in order to function properly and optimally. In contrast, traditional treatments typically offer patients a blanket amount of hormones to take. The problem with this method is that sometimes it might not be enough and sometimes it might be too much. It is not a customized approach to address the hormone levels specific to you and your system. BHRT is prescribed based on an individual basis from specific lab results and the need of your body with the end goal being that you get just the right amount of hormones on a consistent basis. Our physicians take a comprehensive approach to your overall well-being. Therefore, we also strongly consider how each patient is feeling when treating hormone imbalance.

The physician that will be prescribing the hormones to you will conduct an in depth history, exam and intake of your current symptoms and challenges to determine your health needs and goals. Bloodwork will be collected to determine your hormone levels along with other indices to generate a clear picture of your current health and needs. Once the lab analysis is obtained and a diagnosis has been determined the physician will sit down with you to explain your health findings and the appropriate dosage and course of treatment. At Houston Health and Wellness, we want all of our patients to always feel comfortable to ask any questions they have and to be willing to divulge detailed information about the symptoms they have had and are currently experiencing. It is extremely important to us at Houston Health and Wellness that we maintain complete transparency with our patients and that they receive compassion and clear explanations from our staff. Education is a key component for our patients to positively take charge of their current and long-term health.
We proudly offer Bio-identical Hormone Pellet Therapy to patients who are experiencing a hormone imbalance. This is a proven and effective way to add bio-identical hormones into the body with the most natural simulation of hormone release. Today’s technology allows us to place time-release pellets or implants of approved human hormones in the fat under the skin. These pellets, which are slightly larger than a grain of rice, release small physiologic doses of either estradiol or testosterone hormones directly into the bloodstream. Depending on the dosage, this treatment releases healthy levels of hormones for 3 to 6 months.

The advantages of bio-identical hormone pellets are significant. Since they release a consistent level of hormones that is calculated for the each patient’s needs, hormone fluctuations are avoided. The ups and downs that often occur in other hormone treatment methods are what cause many of the unwanted side effects. In addition, pellet therapy does not cause an increased risk for blood clots like synthetic hormone therapy. Many of our patients report effective relief of menopausal symptoms, maintained bone dentistry, better sleep patters and improved libido while undergoing bio-identical hormone pellet treatment. At Houston Health and Wellness, we are happy to evaluate your specific candidacy for this type of convenient and natural hormone therapy.

Choosing Bio-identical hormones over synthetic hormones avoids some very unwanted side effects that many patients often experience. Bio-identical hormones are much easier to regulate as the Doctor has the ability to adjust them as needed to both manage appropriate hormone levels and to manage associated symptoms.
 BHRT is a good choice for both men and women, and the bio-identical hormones are available in an array of options for both male and female hormone treatments. Most people associate hormone therapy with menopause only, but there are many other uses for it as well. Receiving hormone therapy can do a lot of good for your body and help regulate your hormones to normal levels and functions. Most patients feel a great amount of relief in areas such as mood swings, stress control, stamina, overall since of well-being, and many more improved effects from hormone replacement therapy.

The goal of any bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is to restore natural order to the body and restoring the natural hormone balance in both men and women. Most of the things that are associated with low hormone levels are to do low testosterone or estrogen levels in both men and women. Although, in men, often times we are seeing an increase conversion over to estrogen creating an issue of too much estrogen which ultimately creates many unwanted and unnecessary symptoms for a man.

Fatigue, sleep loss, memory loss, mental fog, confusion, depression, irritability, anxiety and mood swings are just some of the cognitive symptoms of having a low testosterone level. A lot of the parts of the brain associated with mood and memory take in a lot of testosterone and so having a low level of testosterone can really affect those areas. Low levels of estrogen is also a problem that can affect people and needs to be treated.
