As we age, we may begin to notice changes in our mood, sex drive, and energy levels. Even though these shifts are a natural part of the aging process, they can often lead to frustration and may even cause some serious health issues. Hormone levels are critical for our overall health and well-being.   It’s important to test and address our evolving hormones in order to address shifts in our health as well as slow the aging process.

Regenerative Medicine offers new hope with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) and opens the door to a brighter future where we can feel and look better naturally. Better sleep, better muscle tone, better libido and more excitement about leading a longer and happier life. This revolutionary branch of treatment works to deliver a steady dose of hormones throughout the body, utilizing medications, topical creams, pellets or injections. BHRT serves to regulate your body’s hormone production and reduce the negative side effects that imbalanced hormone levels can cause, including weight gain, fatigue, mood swings, and sexual dysfunction.


Our Aging-Well Program can help both men and women restore sexual function and libido, lose weight, improve mental performance, increase energy levels, sleep better, and achieve an overall better quality of life.

Beyond Med Spa has qualified BHRT specialists that can provide the best care for your situation. Please schedule a consult with Allyson Berley, MD or Brenda Van Loggem, RNP today. During your consultation they will talk to you about your medical history, current condition and help you decide if BHRT is right for you.

  • Comprehensive Initial Medical Consult
  • Hormone Testing & Lab Work Review
  • Quarterly Medical Consults
  • Custom Hormone Replacement Treatment Plan
  • Prescriptions & Pellets to support your custom Treatment Plan
  • Contact our office to discuss our Aging-Well Membership Program

Am I A Candidate For Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?

Candidates for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) are women and men affected by menopause and andropause.

The symptoms often include:

  • Loss of sex drive
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Weight gain
  • Fatigue
  • Mental fog or loss of concentration
  • Mood swings
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Loss of bone density
  • Poor sleep or insomnia
  • Hair loss
  • Depression

What Is Bio-identical Hormone (BHRT) Replacement Therapy?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a form of hormone replacement therapy that uses hormones that are identical on a molecular level to the hormones naturally produced by the human body.

It’s important for individuals considering BHRT to consult with a qualified healthcare provider, preferably one experienced in hormone therapy. The decision to undergo BHRT should be based on a thorough assessment of individual health status, symptoms, and risk factors. Additionally, individuals should be aware that, like any medical treatment, BHRT has potential risks and benefits that should be carefully considered.

How long does it take for bioidentical hormones to absorb?

It depends on your body, but generally, patients start to experience a difference in their symptoms within a few days. However, it takes your body time to get used to the new hormones so you won’t experience significant changes until around 2 – 3 weeks. Optimal results occur in eight weeks.

Will I gain weight on BHRT?

Before offering this treatment, we closely listen to your concerns, perform blood work, and develop a detailed treatment plan so we can adjust the hormone levels to your needs. Slight fluctuations in your hormones could enable you to lose weight. Our staff can provide additional information about the benefits of this hormone therapy.

What happens if you stop taking bioidentical hormones?

If you stop taking bioidentical hormones, it can cause your menopause or andropause symptoms to come back. We recommend following a consistent treatment plan to ensure you see the results you want.

How Is Bio-hacking Performed?

Our team will design your personalized bio-hacking, AGE MANAGEMENT treatment plan after we assess the results of your blood tests and learn about your symptoms and medical history. We will then determine what types of hormone therapies you would benefit from the most. After about a week HRT, you will begin to notice positive changes in the way you feel and the way your body functions. Within the first year of treatment, follow-up appointments are necessary to ensure the success of your personal program. During your follow-up appointment, we will make sure that you are maintaining ideal hormone levels. In addition to pellets and topical creams, our team offers peptides (small chains of amino acids that have a specific function in the body similar to how insulin works) that can be used for:

  • Anti-aging
  • Brain and memory support
  • Sleep
  • Anxiety
  • Libido (Oxytocin)
  • Joint problems
  • GERD and IBS
  • Weight loss
  • Muscle building
  • Low testosterone

At our facility, we will provide you innovative hormone pellet treatments. During this procedure, dissolvable pellet(s) are inserted into the buttock area under the skin to restore normal hormone levels and improve symptoms.


If you’ve been experiencing problems, like fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, or decreased libido, please contact our office to see if we can help.  We can balance your hormones, allowing you to feel renewed and full of energy once again. Schedule your complimentary consultation today!
