What makes DreamBody Doctors different than my regular Doctor?
What is Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and who is it for?
Hormone replacement therapy is a medical treatment used to treat aging-related diseases, such as Thyroid disorders, menopause in women and andropause in men.
HRT can be beneficial for men when testosterone starts to lower, causing andropause. When receiving HRT, men can lose weight, gain muscle, improve energy and prevent age-related diseases such as, cardiovascular disease, erectile dysfunction, low sex drive(low libidos), and sarcopenia (lost of muscle).
For women, Hormone Replacement Therapy should be initiated when a woman starts seeing signs of menopause. HRT can help women with the symptoms of insomnia, depression, irritability, low energy levels, weight gain, hair loss, hot flashes, night sweats and low sex drive (low libido).
What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are compounded as identical to the hormones in your body as are available.
How are the bioidentical hormones administered?
Anti-aging doctors will prescribe creams, injections, pellets or oral compounded medications according to the patient’s necessities.
When should someone begin bioidentical hormone therapy?
If bioidentical hormone therapy is started early in perimenopause, women may see a reduction in the effects of this change in their natural hormone balance*.
Sleeplessness, depression, hot flashes and irritability are some of the symptoms that can be caused by perimenopause.
As men age they may see a decline in testosterone levels. This decline may be more gradual over a period of ten or more years. The symptoms of low testosterone are similar to perimenopause and may include sexual dysfunction. If these symptoms affect quality of life it is recommended that tests be done to determine if a hormone imbalance is contributing to the symptoms and they are candidates for hormone replacement therapy.*
What can Testosterone Replacement Therapy do for me?
How do I receive Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
Testosterone therapy should be administered intramuscular, transdermally (oral troches) or by pellets. Each patient receiving hormone replacement therapy will receive an individualized plan.
Pellets are placed with a minor procedure that includes local anesthetic using lidocaine, a small incision, and an insertion of a trochar into the adipose tissue to insert the prescribed amount of testosterone pellets. These pellets act in a time release fashion.
What are some things that I should be aware of if receiving HRT/Testosterone Replacement Therapy?
When receiving HRT/Testosterone Replacement therapy you will need continuous lab monitoring and follow ups. Here at Dreambody our policy includes Hormone blood panels drawn at least every six months or as recommended by physician. After receiving your lab results; you will be required to follow up and the physician to review your labs and adjust your therapy as necessary.

Testosterone replacement therapy:
As men get older Testosterone levels decline causing multiple symptoms of deficiency. This condition is referred as low T. When Testosterone levels fall below optimal, inflammation takes over and causes men to age faster.
Among the most common symptoms are the following:
- Muscle loss
- Erectile dysfunction
- Low libido
- Foggy brain
- Lack of motivation
- Mood changes
- Inability to lose weight or increase muscle mass
With a simple blood test, we could determine if the levels of testosterone are sub-optimal. Therapies like Hormonal replacement therapy will help manage the symptoms of lower testosterone levels. By replacing the hormones that are missing, the patient symptoms improve and optimal functioning is achieved.
