Bio-identical hormone therapy (BHRT)
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement is prescribed by Dr. Pacholec at both her St Petersburg, FL and Lutz, FL locations. She is a Board-Certified Fellow by the American Academy of Anti- Aging & Regenerative Medicine.
Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) consists of using standard doses of commercially available synthetic hormones without considering each person’s individual hormone profile. Many doctors and patients have abandoned this “one-size-fits-all” approach for HRT.
An individual approach to HRT, using Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), pin points a person’s exact hormone levels, and identifies which hormones are needed to balance their hormone deficiency. Studies show that BHRT in physiologic doses (equivalent to what your body used to make) produces more positive benefits and fewer negative effects than synthetic hormones. The difference between synthetic and bio-identical hormones is in their chemical structures and functionality. Synthetic hormones are often produced from animals, are not identical to those made by the human body and do not act in the body as human hormones do.
Bio-identical hormones (derived from plants such as soy or yam), are both chemically and functionally identical to those produced by human reproductive organs and adrenal glands. There are a multitude of symptoms that can improve with the proper prescription of BHRT including fatigue, insomnia, night sweats, hot flashes, bloating & swelling, weight gain, “belly fat”, depression, memory disturbance, concentration and many more.
Dr. Pacholec is a Board Certified Fellow with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Regenerative Medicine. She would love to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of hormonal imbalance with you at your next office visit at either her St Petersburg, FL or Lutz, FL locations. Dr. Pacholec believes many chronic illnesses can be prevented as a person ages with proper nutrition, exercise, use of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and bio-identical hormones as needed.

Thank you for pointing out that bio-identical hormones are both chemically and functionally identical to those produced by human reproductive organs. My cousin has been talking about losing weight. I've heard that these hormones can help with that. I'll have to look into some different places she could for this.

My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; firstname.lastname@example.org , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.

Hormones having identical molecular structure are known as bio-identical hormones and the therapy that is made on bio-identical hormones is called bio-identical hormone therapy. The other name of bio-identical hormone therapy is “natural hormone therapy”. As bio-identical hormones come from the natural sources, that's why they are regarded as natural hormones. There is no such evidence that can prove natural HRT is better than traditional HRT. Better you consult a specialist to know about the kind of therapy that your body necessitates for the improvement of well-being.

No matter by what name you call it-- Hormone therapy or hormone replacement therapy or ovarian hormone therapy, it is a treatment involving the use of estrogen and progesterone to supplement the declining levels of these hormones in female body during the days of menopause. The modern medical sciences are of the opinion that the term , "hormone replacement therapy" is contradictory to the very spirit of the treatment as the name suggests that menopause is a disease caused by hormone deficiency. But menopause is just a natural phase of a woman's reproductive life and the entire life cycle as puberty is. So the term "hormone therapy" has become more popular over time.

I completely agree with the fact that bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is more effective as compared to hormonal replacement or HRT. Both of the above-mentioned procedure has pros and cons. So, an individual wants to undergo such kind of procedure should take suggestions from experienced professionals. Such professionals have in-depth knowledge in such fields and could provide suitable assistance to make the procedure side effect free and more effective. For more information, visit
Wow, I never knew that the main difference between bioidentical hormones and synthetic ones is the composition of their chemical structures as well as their functionality. I have been trying to learn more about the therapy that involves the replacement of these hormones, especially for women in menopause, and I think I could really benefit from it in a few years when I reach that point in my life. I need to make sure that I talk to a specialist in my area that could help me see the pros and cons as well as guide me to prepare for this type of therapy.

I find it amazing to learn that having a hormone therapy helps treat a variety of conditions, such as depression and insomnia. My brother has been experiencing both for a while now, and he thinks that it's because of this pandemic. I'll go ahead and recommend that he try this therapy out.
