BHRT Interview With Life Time Fitness
Q: Welcome Liz, I heard a lot of buzz around BHRT, what is it?
A: Hi Natalie, BHRT stands for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Bioidentical hormones have the exact chemical structure identical to what we produce in our bodies and are known to be safer and more effective than chemically similar synthetic versions.
Q: Why would I want to use this form of treatment?
A: Because hormones decline in all people as they age. I often ask my patients, Have you noticed a change in the last few years? Changes like: Mood swings, Insomnia? Hot flashes? Feeling burned out? Irritable? Tearful? Tired? Loss of muscle mass and increase in your belly fat? Loss of sex drive? Decreased strength and mental clarity? Have you lost your edge? If you answered yes to any or all of these, you may be a candidate for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Q: I am intrigued Liz, how do I learn if I am a candidate for this therapy?
A: Schedule an apt at MediSpa. Before therapy is recommended, an in-depth consultation is scheduled to discuss your unique symptoms. A blood test is also completed to gain a bench work analysis of hormone levels. Throughout therapy, a combination of regular check-in consultations and follow-up blood work analyses ensure you receive the proper dose at the proper frequency to attain and retain optimal results.
Q: What type of BHRT treatment do you recommend?
A: An appealing treatment of choice offered at MediSpa, is the extended release pellets. About the size of a grain of rice, these pellets are inserted under the skin, usually in the hip/ buttock area.This procedure is done in-office in a simple 15 -30 minute apt using local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The pellet advantage is a reduced roller coaster effect, providing a steady, slow release of hormone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Q: How and where do I get started?
A: Schedule your blood work analyses at MediSpa. We’ll conduct the lab tests you need to determine your hormone levels, and get you back to looking and feeling your best!
