Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a revolutionary new treatment for men and women with hormone imbalances.

Bioidentical hormones differ from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy because they have an identical molecular structure to the hormones your body produces naturally. By mimicking natural hormones, BHRT causes fewer side effects than synthetic hormones.

Dr. Khedia offers plant-based BioTE® hormone pellets, which are custom-compounded for your individual needs and free of synthetic hormones.


Why would I consider bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?

Hormones are in charge of everything from your metabolism to mood. Even a minor hormonal  imbalance can lead to a host of unpleasant symptoms, such as:

  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Hot flashes
  • Memory loss
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Difficulty sleeping (insomnia)

BHRT improves your quality of life by reducing these symptoms. It may even enhance your skin tone by restoring hydration and elasticity and smoothing out wrinkles.


What conditions does bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treat?

Dr. Khedia uses BHRT to optimize hormone levels for the treatment of numerous medical conditions, including:

  • Thyroid disorders
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Heart disease

Hormone optimization helps to relieve the symptoms of these conditions and promote a healthier, happier life.


How does bioidentical hormone pellet therapy work?

First, Dr. Khedia performs a comprehensive physical exam and reviews your medical history. Then, he creates a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.

Treatment may include custom-compounded BioTE hormone pellets formulated for your specific hormone imbalance and high-quality BioTE Nutraceuticals supplements to promote optimal health.

Dr. Khedia inserts hormone pellets just beneath your skin, where they continuously release hormones as your body absorbs them. You take Nutraceuticals supplements orally to enhance the effects of BHRT.

Most people notice an improvement in symptoms about two to four weeks after starting BioTE therapy, but total hormone optimization may take up to six months. Dr. Khedia reinserts new hormone pellets two to four times per year, depending on your needs.
