Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
At the Mind Body Neurology, Dr. Alexander Zubkov a specialist in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), is dedicated to educating patients about hormone health.
Understanding Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy:
For over seven decades, bioidentical hormones have been effectively utilized as replacements for human hormones. These chemically identical substances can aid individuals with hormone deficiencies, excesses, or imbalances in restoring their hormone levels and alleviating related symptoms. BHRT is a distinct type of hormone therapy, setting it apart from other hormone replacement methods.
BHRT OFFERS UNIQUE ADVANTAGES, SUCH AS:
Previous hormone replacement methods only provided a single hormone dose for all types of imbalances or deficiencies. In contrast, BHRT employs a tailored approach, delivering specific hormone levels to address patients' individual needs. This precision enables both men and women to optimize their hormone levels without receiving excessive or insufficient hormone amounts.
Bioidentical hormones, being identical to human hormones, are easily absorbed, recognized, and utilized by the body. They seamlessly integrate into cellular receptor sites, unlike non-identical hormones that may only be partially recognized and potentially block these sites from the body's natural hormones.
Minimal to No Side Effects:
By providing the exact dosages and hormone matches naturally produced in the body, bioidentical hormones function similarly to human hormones, thus preventing common side effects associated with non-identical hormones, such as bloating, water retention, headaches, and fatigue.
Derived from soy or yam products, bioidentical hormones are a more natural alternative to animal-derived hormones, which may not be identical to human hormones and can cause adverse side effects.
It is crucial to assess all hormone levels before initiating a BHRT program, as imbalances in one hormone can impact others. Dr. Zubkov will identify any current hormone deficiencies or imbalances you may have.
At the Mind Body Neurology, Dr. Alexander Zubkov designs customized BHRT treatments to enhance patients' health and well-being.
