Hormone imbalances can change our lives drastically. As we get older, we don’t just start to feel the brunt of decades of stressors, environmental toxins, and unhealthy diets, but we also start to feel the consequences of the inevitable decline of our hormone levels. Key Laser is proud to offer a solution through their newest treatment: Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Through their collaboration with Dr. Janice Buenafe and BioTe Medical, Key Laser hopes to provide relief and improve the quality of life for their patients.
Do You Need Treatment for Hormone Imbalance?
Hormone imbalance can cause a wide range of symptoms like depression, weight gain, night sweats, hot flashes, decreased ability to concentrate, extreme fatigue, difficulty sleeping, depression, and low sex drive. If you suffer from any of these symptoms, its might not just be the natural signs of aging—you may actually suffer from hormone imbalances and may be a candidate for BHRT.
What is BHRT?
Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is a way to replace the natural hormones that our body may have stopped producing due to environmental factors such as poor nutrition, and stress; or the natural decline in production seen over time. Bio-identical hormones are plant-based and are the exact molecular structure of hormones that our body naturally produces, therefore work in a biologically effective manner while carrying minimal side effects. Unlike traditional hormone therapy, BHRT will be tailored for your body’s needs, giving you the right kinds of hormones with individualized dosing. With BHRT, you can finally have balance and harmony with your body.
What Can BHRT Do for Me?
BHRT has been shown to reduce the risk of significant medical conditions like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s dementia. Patients taking BHRT also see improvements in their energy levels, ability to concentrate, an increase in lean muscle and bone mass, reduction in their belly fat, and increased sexual interest.
How Is BHRT Done?
At Key Laser, your medical history is first reviewed between you and Dr. Buenafe to see if you are a good candidate for treatment. If so, an individualized hormone treatment plan is created for you based on your specific blood test results and medical history. Your BHRT estrogen and/or testosterone replacement is incredibly convenient in that it is done through an implanted pellet delivery system, needing maintenance once every 3-5 months instead of dealing with the hassle of applying daily creams or doing weekly injections. Balancing of other important hormones such as Progesterone and Thyroid are also given as bio-identical pills or sublinguals.
