Improve Your Quality of Life with BHRT (Bio-Hacking)
Aging and other factors can cause our hormones to fluctuate. This means you experience big changes when it comes to your mood and energy levels. Even a small drop in estrogen, testosterone, or progesterone can affect your quality of life. Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics is proud to offer our own form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), also known as bio-hacking.
Hormones affect almost every aspect of your health. When they're properly balanced, all of your body systems will work more smoothly. Request an appointment with Dr. Allyson Berkey in Newport Beach, CA to find out if BHRT is right for your needs.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance
Hormones are chemical carriers that influence nearly all of our systems. They are secreted into the blood by various glands, including the thyroid, adrenals, and pituitary systems. While most people associate changing hormone levels with menopause, men are also affected. This is called andropause. Common signs of hormone imbalance in Newport Beach, CA include:
Irregular periods: women may experience heavy periods or spotting in between their periods. Sometimes a hormone imbalance can even affect fertility levels.
Weight fluctuations: unexplained weight gain or weight loss.
Changes in appetite: overeating or not eating enough can contribute to weight fluctuations.
Depression and anxiety: hormone activity is responsible for many emotional and psychological issues.
Hair loss: you may notice thinning hair or strands of hair that fall out unexpectedly.
Insomnia: not being able to stay asleep for extended periods of time.
Low libido: hormone changes can alter your sex drive. This can impact your relationship with your partner or spouse.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
As the name implies, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the process of treating hormone imbalances with bioidentical hormones. The name "bioidentical" means the hormones are chemically identical to the ones your body produces. Once your hormones are in balance with BHRT, you begin to notice an improvement in symptoms. Natural hormone replacement may lead to an improvement in energy and mood, better sleep quality, increased libido, and clearer thinking.
How we administer BHRT
Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics creates a personalized bio-hacking plan after an examination and assessment of your medical history. We may also take blood tests to determine what kinds of hormone therapies will benefit you. Our advanced clinic offers BHRT treatment in the form of medications, topical creams, and injections.
Based on your individual plan, you may begin to notice changes after about a week. Follow-up appointments will also ensure that you maintain healthy hormone levels long-term. Our staff may alter your treatment plan if we feel that your BHRT isn’t working as it should. Consistent treatment, however, should lead to a considerable improvement in your day-to-day life.
