Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
For both men and women hormones naturally decrease with age, sometimes resulting in uncomfortable and problematic symptoms such as; weight gain, loss of energy, loss of mental clarity, irritability, loss of libido, and hot flashes for women. With advancements in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, you now have a choice to retake control of both your body and mind. At AsandraMD, we use plant-based Bio-Identical Hormones, substituting your hormones molecule for molecule, which means a safer and more effective treatment. No synthetics and no animal derivates such as Premarin, which is made from horse urine. Dr. Asandra, one of the world’s leading hormone experts, will listen and work with you to tailor a unique treatment plan specific to your needs and symptoms. This is an ongoing, and carefully monitored process by Dr. Asandra himself. Your journey is our journey, every step of the way.

The first step in the carefully monitored process of getting your hormones balanced once again, is sitting down with Dr. Asandra and thoroughly going over your symptoms and medical history. AsandraMD is a judgement free zone, and we take every symptom seriously, we understand that you’re here through no fault of your own. Only you know if and when you feel well, and we’ll listen until we find the right solution for you.
The next step is to take a blood sample. This allows Dr. Asandra to see exactly what’s going on in your body. With those results, and continued dialogue, Dr. Asandra can then begin to tailor a unique hormone replacement plan for you.
There have been vast advances in the field of BHRT over recent years, and gone are the days of troublesome gels, creams, and shots. Dr. Asandra utilizes pellet therapy, guaranteeing a consistent physiological release, without the roller coaster effects of the aforementioned methods. Depending on your need, Dr. Asandra will insert small pellets the size of a grain of rice in the hip area (1-2 for women and 2-10 for men), containing estrogen and/or testosterone for women, and testosterone for men with the occasional estrogen blocker.
This process does not end with the insertion of your pellets. In fact, the monitoring and attention to detail intensifies. You will be in constant communication with Dr. Asandra, reporting how you feel, routinely checking your blood, and fine tuning your plan for the optimal results you deserve.
