What are bioidentical hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones made in a woman’s body. Unlike their synthetic predecessors, bioidentical hormones are made from a plant extract derived from yams and/or soy. These extracts are processed in a medical lab to exactly duplicate the natural hormones’ structure.

What are the advantageous of bioidentical hormones?

The body is unable to tell the difference between bioidentical hormones and those naturally produced in the body.  That means these newer hormones are safer than traditional, synthetic versions. Another major advantage is that bioidentical hormones can be precisely monitored via blood and saliva tests. As a result, dosages are easily customized for every patient. Too, they are more easily absorbed by the body compared to synthetic hormones.

How can bio-identical hormone therapy help me?

Most women experience serious, even debilitating symptoms as a result of the decrease in the female sex hormones, estrogen, and progesterone that accompany menopause. By replacing these hormones with bioidentical versions, women not only enjoy relief from these symptoms but reap increased energy and strength and a diminished risk of age-related conditions, such as osteoporosis.

What is Dr. Davis’s approach to bio-identical hormone therapy?

The key to bio-identical hormone therapy at the Texas Anti-Aging Medicine Institute is a custom approach. Dr. Davis begins with a thorough exam that includes taking a complete family history, physical exam, and blood tests. She will also offer education on exercise, diet, and stress reduction, to ensure ongoing and optimal health and wellness.

Antiaging and Functional Medicine

Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine is much more than a cosmetic practice. It is a medical specialty focused on prevention, treatment, and reversal of health deterioration due to age. As the average lifespan continues to increase, it is important to stay hormonally and nutritionally healthy throughout the middle and last stages of life.

Age deterioration can begin as early as the 30s. This is when production of the body's natural hormones, namely progesterone and estrogen in women, testosterone in men – as well as thyroid hormones, growth hormones, melatonin, DHEA, and brain hormones – starts to diminish.

To restore hormonal balance to the body, Texas Anti-Aging Medicine Institute uses Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy. BHRT is a recent breakthrough in the Anti-Aging practice and was developed to supplant synthetic hormone replacement, which can pollute the body with foreign substances that cannot be broken down. The replacement hormones used by Texas Anti-Aging Medicine Institute, however, are identical in molecular structure to the ones your body produces.

After a lab test is done to determine the precise quantity of hormone deficiency, a prescription is sent to the pharmacy. The hormones are absorbed via creams, pills, compound patches, or injections.

The effects Bio-Replacement Hormone Therapy will help you look and feel younger by counteracting a rapid decline in quality of life due to deterioration of the heart, brain, blood vessels, and organs. BHRT also helps prevent such health problems as erectile dysfunction and reduced muscle strength in men, and hair loss and bloating in women.

The Functional Medicine service at Texas Anti-Aging Medicine Institute is an alternative medicine to improve physiological functions of patients with chronic diseases. This branch of medicine takes into consideration every aspect of a patient's lifestyle, from environmental stimuli to genetic predispositions, with the goal of treating and preventing the underlying cause of the disease instead of merely ameliorating the symptoms.

Health deterioration due to aging or chronic illness should be treated as early as possible. Texas Anti-Aging Medicine Institute is ready to fulfill all of your anti-aging, regenerative, and functional medicine needs.

Bio-idential Hormone Therapy

The conventional doctors tend to treat menopause, rather than the person experiencing menopausal symptoms. Many don’t even bother determining hormone levels. A quickly prescribed fixed dosage of artificial (nonhuman) hormones, such as Premarin, made from horse urine, is the standard way by the conventional doctors.

But every woman is different, and each will experience menopause in a unique way. That’s why it is crucial to run comprehensive tests before beginning any hormone program, followed by periodical blood checks to ensure hormone levels are in the optimal range.
