      Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

      BHRT Naples FL

      Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can be used for both women and men to normalize low or imbalanced hormones.

      Conditions like perimenopause, menopause and other conditions that create hormone imbalances in women can be addressed - alleviating symptoms like hot flashes, mood changes, weight gain and diminished sex drive. In men, conditions like erectile dysfunction, for example, can be successfully addressed with BHRT, along with other ED treatment options we offer.

      Once considered a natural consequence of aging, a decline in sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and testosterone can be relieved through life-changing Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

      Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is one more effective tool is our toolkit to optimize male and female health and sexuality.

      What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

      Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) involves introducing bioidentical hormones into the body to correct any hormonal imbalances that you are experiencing. Bioidentical hormones are made from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to the hormones that your body naturally produces.

      BHRT is a natural alternative with minimal side effects compared to traditional hormonal replacement therapies that introduce synthetic hormones into the body. Unlike bioidentical hormones which can be precisely formulated for each patient’s individual needs, synthetic hormones are patented and do not differ from patient to patient.

      Bioidentical hormones are designed to be molecularly identical and mimic the effect of hormones produced by your body. These hormones are made from plants like yams, flax, and soybeans, and can be easily customized to fit your specific needs – without the side effects.

      How do hormonal imbalances affect your health?

      Hormonal decline or imbalance can impact your physical health, as well as your sexual function, with symptoms that include:

      • Decreased cognitive function
      • Increased symptoms of menopause
      • Decreased bone density and muscle mass
      • Decreased sex drive and limited sexual pleasure
      • Increased risk of heart disease and stroke

      Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

      Both women and men experience the benefits of BHRT, including:

      • Increased sex drive
      • Improved sexual function and stamina
      • Higher energy levels
      • Enhanced feelings of wellbeing
      • Improved mental function, including reduced brain fog, anxiety, irritability and depression
      • Increased ability to build muscle mass and strength
      • Increased hair growth
      • Reduced fluid retention and bloating
      • Resolved sleep problems
      • Fewer symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats
      • Improved metabolism
      • Potential weight loss
      • Enhanced lipid levels
      • Reduced risk of osteoporosis
      • Restoration of bone strength


      How does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy work?

      Hormones are chemicals created by your endocrine glands and function as messengers that direct certain systems and functions in your body. When those hormones decline, various bodily functions – not just sexual function – can begin to experience problems and create symptoms. BHRT stabilizes hormonal imbalance, restoring normal function. BHRT uses hormones that come from plants.

      Some bioidentical hormones are premade by drug companies, while others are custom-made by a pharmacist, or compounded, based on your physician’s prescription. BHRT hormones come in various doses and forms, including:

      How long does it take for BHRT to start working?

      Some individuals begin to experience mild relief within a few weeks, but usually, it takes up to three months to appreciate the full effects of hormone therapy.

      How many BHRT treatments are needed?

      Ongoing consults are required to continue treatment with BHRT.

      How long do the effects of BHRT last?

      The effects can be maintained indefinitely as long as you continue BHRT. Regular consultations at Improving Your Health to maintain your hormone balance and sexual health are essential, especially if you begin to notice a return of symptoms, so that your condition can be evaluated, and next steps can be taken in a timely manner, including modifying your BHRT treatment.

      What should I expect from a hormone-related sexual health consultation?

      Dr. Rubin always begins with a functional evaluation of your body and your individual health profile. A hormone-related sexual health consultation includes looking at all aspects of how your body is functioning – from your hormonal balance to your sexual performance issues. Dr. Rubin then works with each patient to create an individualized medical plan tailored to your sexual health goals.

      Our functional medicine approach means the goal is understanding the root cause of any hormonal or sexual issues you may be experiencing, as opposed to simply treating symptoms. With a holistic approach to hormonal and sexual health, we prioritize long-lasting health, not just short-term results.

      At Improving Your Health, Dr. Rubin creates personalized plans based on each client’s unique assessment. He recognizes the nuanced differences among his clients, with the understanding that no two treatment plans should ever be the same – because every man and every woman are unique.

      Not all cases are appropriate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. In cases where erectile dysfunction, for example, is caused by psychological issues such as low self-esteem, nerve damage, cancer treatments or surgery, hormone imbalance may not be an issue and BHRT may not be appropriate. It is important to have a thorough medical evaluation before introducing BHRT into your treatment regimen.

      If our Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy protocol at Improving Your Health is right for you, it may simply include BHRT alone, or it could involve a variety of other approaches to maximize results. From nutritional supplements to acupuncture or medical weight loss, our goal is always to maximize hormonal balance, sexual function and treat underlying causes of your hormonal complexities. If hormone imbalances are impacting your health and sexual function, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) may be advisable.

      You and Dr. Rubin will explore the results of your tests and consider all of your options together.
