BIOIDENTICAL
HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY SILVERDALE

As men and women age, their bodies begin to slow the production of hormones. While a natural effect of aging slowed hormone production can lead to hormonal deficiencies, which in turn can result in a number of unpleasant symptoms.

Here at Port Orchard Natural Medicine in Silverdale, we have a team of caring staff and a naturopathic doctor (Dr. Robertson) who are ready to help you get your life and health balanced again with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

If this is your first time learning about bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, here’s an overview of what it is. If you find that you still have questions, give our Silverdale clinic a call today.

What Exactly is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT for short, is a form of treatment used to balance hormones and alleviate certain symptoms (such as those relating to menopause). 

Man-made hormones are extracted from plants and created to replicate the function of hormones produced by our bodies naturally. Using plant estrogens, hormones such as testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen may be created and then used to fix hormonal imbalances that people struggle with.

How is BHRT Administered?

There is more than one way to administer BHRT treatments. The method used to administer the synthetic hormones will depend on the condition or symptoms being treated. Here at Port Orchard Natural Medicine in Silverdale, we administer BHRT treatments using the following methods:

  • Topical creams
  • Injections
  • Vaginal suppositories
  • Patches
  • Oral capsules and pills
  • Sublingual (under the tongue) drops or lozenges

Finding a hormonal balance can be a delicate line and takes a deep understanding of your hormone profile, health, age, and more. Here at Port Orchard Natural Medicine in Silverdale, Dr. Robertson will make sure that she has a thorough understanding of your symptoms and hormone profile to determine the best way to administer your hormone treatments.

What Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Do?

This depends on dosage, age, gender, which hormone you are taking, and what condition is being treated. BHRT does different things for men and women, but mostly it works to improve your health and quality of life.

Here’s an overview of how BHRT treatments can be helpful for men and women.

How Can BHRT Help Women?

As women age, their bodies produce less estrogen and progesterone. Decreased hormone production may result in some alarming and severe symptoms including the following:

  • Decreased or low libido
  • Heatwaves/flashes
  • Mood swings
  • Bouts of depression
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Bone density loss
  • Brain fog and memory loss
  • Migraines

These are alarming symptoms for many women and can be quite frightening and life-altering. Take courage knowing that these symptoms aren’t a permanent part of your life and with a little bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may be alleviated.

How Can BHRT Help Men?

Men also suffer from hormonal deficiencies and imbalances as a result of aging. Low testosterone production in men can produce symptoms such as:

  • Low or decreased libido
  • Brain fog, poor concentration, memory loss
  • Depression or other cognitive effects

Here at Port Orchard Natural Medicine, our BHRT testosterone treatments have been shown to be effective in treating Low-T in men. Mood effects and low libido are not symptoms that need to become a permanent part of your life. With helpful BHRT treatments, you can return to full health and feeling your best.
