Bio Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Roswell, GAis the chemical messengers that travel through our bloodstream and control most of our body`s basic bodily functions. The exact chemical structure of the body’s hormones is incredibly important to maintaining overall health and well-being. Every decade we lose 10% of our normal hormone function. Both men and women experience symptoms from low hormone levels including weight gain, headaches, brain fog, acne, mood swings, fatigue, loss of libido, anxiety, and depression.
BHRT therapy is unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and is exclusively provided by our medical director, Dr. Clarence Morgan. Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Bioidentical hormones come in various forms including pills, topical creams, patches, gels, or injections.
Initial consultation and health intake will determine the correct route of testing to evaluate each individual hormone levels. These hormones include thyroid function, nutrition levels, neurotransmitters, adrenal function, and sex hormones. A patient’s saliva and blood spot samples are collected via home collection kits provided through ZRT laboratories. Steroid hormones in the bloodstream are 95-99% bound to carrier proteins, and in this form are unavailable to target tissues. Saliva testing measures the amount of hormone available to target tissues – the bioavailable amount. For this reason, saliva testing better relates to specific symptoms of excess or deficiency and is a good option for monitoring hormone therapy.
Individual results are provided to your medical provider and patients are scheduled for immediate follow-up in order to review and initiate appropriate care. Repeat testing is provided 90 days after initial therapy begins to evaluate the efficacy of BHRT for optimal patient outcomes.
