Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) in New York


Why use bio-identical hormones

Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Over the last 10 years, clinical research has shown that bio-identical hormones have distinct advantages and safety benefits over conventional non-identical oral hormones such as Provera and Premarin.

The North American Menopause Society, the leading academic medical organization that focuses on HRT in women, has recommended bio-identical hormones for relief of symptoms and has endorsed them for their unique safety benefits and dosing customization.

Bio-identical hormones are equally effective as traditional pill form non-identical hormones at treating the target conditions in both men and women: Low T, menopause, hot flashes, sexual dysfunction, osteoporosis (bone loss) and other conditions for which they prescribed.

Bio-identical hormones such as testosterone, estradiol and progesterone, share the same exact chemical structure as your body’s own hormones, which adds to their safety profile. Some large studies have even suggested a reduced breast cancer risk with female HRT when compared to traditional hormone replacement.

Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

At Vitamore BHRT, bio-identical hormones are delivered via implantation under the skin or through a cream applied to the skin, as opposed to traditional pills. This avoids them from being broken down in the liver to toxic products that can turn on cancer genes.

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) allows for very flexible and individualized dosing as multiple hormones can be combined for balanced replacement that addresses multiple symptoms as once. They are prescribed, like other medications, and can be custom compounded by specially trained pharmacists, to allow for unique administrations such as implantation.
