Bioidentical HRT / Hormone Replacement Therapy & Treatment
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is a proven and effective method for correcting hormonal imbalances naturally.
At the DaSilva Institute, our hormone specialists on staff have one goal – to restore your hormones back to your optimum levels so you experience improved your mood, energy, and even appearance. We do this by using only natural, plant-based bioidentical hormones, which are molecularly identical to the hormones your body produces. Natural bioidentical hormones are a safer alternative to synthetic hormones that often come with negative side effects and serious health risks.
Your individualized HRT treatment will include:
Hormone testing & evaluation:
First, we will order the initial lab tests, which can be performed anywhere in the United States through our national laboratory partner. Next, we’ll arrange a consultation with one of our hormone specialists (either by phone or in our clinic) to discuss your hormonal imbalance symptoms, review your blood test results, and discuss your treatment options.
Personalized hormone therapy program:
If indicated, we will prescribe customized, compounded bioidentical hormones and pharmacy-grade supplements that meet your unique needs. You can choose a compounding pharmacy, or we can give recommendations.
[Important note: We will recommend only those compounding pharmacies we have personally audited to ensure they meet the most stringent standards. They must prove that they adhere to strict procedures to provide pure and sterile compounds. We spend from 3-4 days at each compounding pharmacy examining their quality control measures as well as poring over their certificate of analysis records for the raw materials they purchase.
If choosing your own pharmacy to compound your bioidenticals, make sure it’s PCCA certified (a third-party certifying company)].
Your individualized therapy program, based on your age and medical status, may include the following bioidentical hormones:
- progesterone and estrogen
- Human Growth Hormone
- Melatonin, DHEA, and Adrenal Hormones (Cortisol)
Follow-up & maintenance:
During your therapy, we will reevaluate your hormone levels every six months to ensure that you are maintaining optimum balance. To teach you how to balance your hormones going forward, we will also offer nutritional guidance and support.
