How bio-identical hormone replacement therapy from your holistic doctor in St. Louis, MO, can help with BHRT
Hormonal fluctuations continue throughout your life. When your hormones are out of balance, your body will feel out of balance too. Fortunately, there is a revolutionary way to balance your hormones so you feel better. It’s called bio-identical hormonal replacement, and it’s available from your doctor.
Dr. Sultan, MD at Environmental Health Center in St. Louis, MO, provides a wide range of holistic medicine services, including bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Hormonal fluctuations can be brought on by major life changes from puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and aging. Medical procedures like a hysterectomy can also bring about dramatic hormonal changes.
When your hormone levels are out of balance, you may experience:
- Problems sleeping
- Excess weight gain
- Increased belly fat
- Lower sex drive
- Decreased energy level
- Depression or anxiety
- Memory issues
Your doctor will test your current hormone levels and create a customized treatment plan to balance your hormones and help you feel like yourself again. Diet, exercise, controlling stress, and lifestyle modifications, are all part of your plan.
You may also need hormone replacement therapy, and today’s HRT is easier to tolerate and safer. It’s called bio-identical hormone replacement or BHRT, and you need to know that it is identical in structure to human hormones. This means that BHRT:
- Lasts longer, from three to five months
- Has been extensively researched and tested for safety
- Maintains a steady stream of hormones in your blood
- Is individually dosed to meet your needs
- Has fewer side effects than conventional HRT
Bio-identical hormone replacement also helps prevent thinning of your bones, a common condition known as osteoporosis. BHRT increases your bone density, to prevent fractures.
Bio-identical hormone treatment doesn’t increase risk of blood clots, a heart attack, or a stroke like other hormone replacement products can.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments: Testosterone can be dispensed in oral, topical form or inserted as a pellet. Pellet is a small, rice size pellet that is inserted in the buttocks area and provides relief for 3-4 months. The best results are usually achieved with pellet therapy.
