Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Q & A

What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones offer a way to possibly slow the aging process and resolve symptoms commonly associated with aging. These hormones are made from plant ingredients, including yams and soybeans, rather than synthetics. They molecularly match the hormones produced by your own body, so they’re efficiently absorbed and effective in helping resolve symptoms related to hormonal imbalances or a decline in hormonal production.

Bioidentical hormones are compounded, meaning they’re customized to meet your unique requirements. Commonly administered bioidentical hormones include testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and DHEA.

What symptoms can be addressed with bioidentical hormone therapy?

Hormones govern numerous body functions. As you get older, the glands that produce hormones slow down production naturally. As a result, men and women may experience symptoms, including:

  • Loss of libido
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of energy and problems sleeping
  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Mood changes and foggy thinking
  • Weight gain and muscle loss
  • Vaginal dryness and painful sexual intercourse (women)
  • Erectile dysfunction (men)

When your hormones are rebalanced, these symptoms reduce or disappear altogether. You start to feel more like your younger, more energetic, and productive self.

How are bioidentical hormones administered?

Dr. Rajaratnam offers bioidentical hormones in the form of creams and pellets for both men and women. Pellets are administered under your skin and as time-release hormones.

He adjusts the dose according to your symptoms and needs, keeping it to the minimum required to achieve your health goals.

Why should I consider bioidentical hormone therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy offers a natural alternative to conventional hormone therapy that includes hormones derived from synthetic or animal compounds. When you take these conventional hormones that aren’t quite matched to your cells’ natural design, your body may not recognize them. With bioidentical hormones, your body uses the hormones efficiently and effectively to address your imbalances.

Bioidentical hormone therapy is customized to you, too. You get just the right combination of hormones in the optimal doses to help you resolve your symptoms.
