Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
At AllCare, Dr. Gerace provides bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with exceptional personalized care. BHRT helps both men and women by replenishing the hormones that are integral for optimal bodily functioning. This alternative hormone therapy is an innovative and convenient option.
What are bioidentical hormones?
AllCare provides bioidentical hormone therapy using naturally sourced hormones that replicate the molecular structure and mimic the function of naturally produced sex hormones–estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Dr. Gerace tailors each dose of bioidentical hormones to meet your specific health needs.
What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a natural treatment designed to replenish hormone levels that have become depleted from your body. Replenishing important hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone can improve your quality of life and restore hormonal balance. Hormonal imbalances often lead to numerous complications and symptoms for both men and women, including irritability, poor sleep, sexual dysfunction, dryness of vagina, bladder issues, wrinkles and fine lines, dry skin, hot flashes, weight gain, night sweats, joint pain, physical and mental exhaustion, and memory loss. Several factors can contribute to hormonal imbalances, such as certain medications, chronic diseases, or aging. BHRT helps to ease symptoms of menopause or perimenopause, andropause or peri-andropause, and hormone deficiencies. At AllCare, hormone replacement therapy can be administered in different ways, such as topical gels, creams, and pellet insertion. Dr. Gerace inserts a bioidentical hormone pellet into the fatty layer under the skin of your upper buttocks. Over time, the pellet secretes hormones that are absorbed directly into your bloodstream.
What are the advantages to bioidentical hormones?
Hormone replacement therapy can be life-changing. Bioidentical hormones offer numerous benefits, including:
Increased bone density
Relief of menopausal symptoms
Protective qualities for uterine, ovarian, prostate, and breast cancer
Lowered risk for arthritis and memory loss
Improved cardiovascular health
Often improves dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles
With BHRT using pellet insertion, you don’t have to think about it for months as the pellet will do the work for you. For around three to four months in women and around five to six months in men, the pellets secrete healthy levels of hormones to enhance your health and wellness. Bioidentical hormones may not be the right option for every patient, as there may be risks associated with HRT among some populations. Dr. Gerace will help you determine the best treatment for your individual symptoms and health goals.
