Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Men

What is BHRT?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a safe, natural therapy that addresses the hormonal imbalance that can occur as men age. The objective of BHRT is to replace or rebalance hormones that are deficient or in excess, in order to restore optimum hormone balance.

Bioidentical hormones are made from a natural material (a plant molecule, diosgenin, that is found in wild yams and soy) and are identical to the hormones that your body naturally produces, meaning that they are safe for you to consume.

Bioidentical hormones are safe because, like your own hormones, they fit perfectly into the hormone receptor “locks” of the cells in the body where they do their work. And because they have a 100 percent relative binding affinity (RBA) for your internal hormone receptor sites, they do not trigger side effects.

Just as the key to your car fits perfectly into the ignition and sparks the engine when turned, bioidentical hormones fit into your body’s hormone receptor locks and spark exactly the same response as the hormones produced in your, testes, adrenal glands, or hypothalamus.

Why Dr. Randolph Prescribes BHRT

For two decades, Dr. Randolph has prescribed bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to thousands of men suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalance, such as night sweats, weight gain, brain fog, moodiness, bloating, headaches, depression, fatigue, low libido and decreased sexual pleasure; but he did not always prescribe BHRT.

Like most physicians in the United States, Dr. Randolph was trained in medical school to prescribe “synthetic” non-bioidentical hormones. He stopped prescribing “synthetic” hormones because of the high percentage of patients who came back complaining of side effects, some very troublesome, like low libido and weight gain, others of greater health significance, like tender or fibrocystic breasts and low thyroid disorders.

Years before the landmark 2002 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study revealed “synthetic” hormones were a serious health risk, Dr. Randolph had already researched and developed a safer alternative. His early training as a compounding pharmacist with a specialization in plant-based medicine (pharmacognosy) helped him recognize that bioidentical hormones can literally restore hormone balance at a cellular level.

In the mid-1990s, Dr. Randolph began prescribing compounded bioidentical hormone treatments for his patients, finally opening his own on-site pharmacy in 1998.

Although BHRT has been available for many years, not everyone is aware of how safe and effective this type of treatment is!

What BHRT Can Help Treat

Age, stress, body fat and common environmental toxins can all negatively impact hormone production. Men can experience a decline in hormone production, specifically testosterone, at any age.

Our medical experts use blood tests to analyze levels of the sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone), thyroid hormones, and adrenal hormones (cortisol and DHEA) before prescribing a naturally-safe, clinically-proven, individualized dosing of BHRT.
