BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is the use of hormones to help resolve symptoms related to hormonal imbalance or decline in hormone production. Our hormone treatments are called “bio-identical” because the types of hormones we use are chemically identical to those produced by the human body. Natural hormones used in BHRT are derived from products like plants and animal sources, rather than being created synthetically in a lab.

WHO NEEDS BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE THERAPY?

Almost all men and women over the age of 40 begin to experience hormone imbalance.  There is a natural decline in hormone production with age.  Production declines by 50% by age 50.  There are also lifestyle and environmental factors that may accelerate that decline.

As we age, we start to experience a multitude of symptoms that are a result of a decrease in our natural hormone production and levels. Men and women each have their own set of issues that can result from hormone deterioration and imbalance. To learn more about specifics by gender, click the links below:

Some general symptoms include:

Lack of Energy Hair Loss
Decreased Sex Drive Memory Loss
Insomnia Depression
Joint & Muscle Pain Mood Swings
Weight Gain Anxiety
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we can help! Dr. Durst has extensive training and experience in hormone treatment and is passionate about helping people find their balance. She is board certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and has completed a fellowship in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine. Led by Dr. Durst, RevitalyzeMD has developed a managed treatment program in which we will evaluate your current symptoms and hormone levels to create a custom program designed for your specific needs. Once treatment begins, your progress will be monitored, and treatment adjusted as needed to achieve optimal results.  Our goal is to have you feeling like the best version of yourself!

REVITALYZE MD’S BHRT PROGRAM

Many things in our lives need to be managed. Your health is no exception! It’s time to start managing your wellbeing with a combined program of fitness, nutrition and Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy. The good news for both men and women is that in most cases, hormone loss and imbalance can be corrected. It is a journey to optimal health and disease prevention that requires both an experienced physician and a patient committed to the program.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The first step is to schedule a free 20-minute consultation to meet with the doctor and arrange to have your blood work done.  Once we receive the results, we’ll have you come in to discuss the findings, and do a comprehensive evaluation including a review of your symptoms and a medical exam.  An individualized plan is created, and you will be prescribed bioidentical hormones and possibly supplements through your choice of compounding pharmacies. At this time, the doctor will discuss your options regarding our treatment program. Should you decide to enroll, there will be ongoing evaluations to adjust treatments based on blood work and symptoms.  This is done to optimize levels of hormones and get you feeling your best.  Sometimes detoxification programs are recommended. As part of our wellness program, we will help you put together a plan for eating a healthy diet, exercise and stress reduction techniques that work for your lifestyle.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN?

Hormone management is a very personal journey.  There isn’t a one-size-fits-all program that works for everyone.  The team at RevitalyzeMD will spend the time to make a plan to replenish and balance your hormones in a way that’s just right for you. For BHRT Club members, they will continually evaluate and asses your progress using your own feedback along with blood levels to help guide them toward the goal of symptom control and disease prevention.  They will adjust your prescriptions as needed to help you attain the results you’re looking for. Our expert providers will be available to you for any questions or concerns regarding your hormone treatment, medications and symptoms. However, this program does not replace a primary care physician for any medical issues not related to your hormone treatment plan. In addition, you will be expected to continue to see your primary care physician for routine care. Having necessary basic annual tests (pap smear & mammograms for women, PSA and urology exams for men) are an integral factor in maintaining good health.

The full program provides a year long, medically supervised package which includes a detailed outline of your hormone treatment plan and goals, supplement recommendations, an individualized diet and exercise program as well as monthly follow up visits and consultations with the provider. The staff at RevitalyzeMD will help keep you on track to ensure you are complying with the program.  As a member of the BHRT Program, you are also entitled to a 10% discount on all prescriptions through the Compounding Pharmacy of America. In addition, you’ll receive invitations to our members only events and have access to monthly exclusive discounts and specials.

At the end of the first year in the program, You and your provider will review your progress. Ideally, all the effort has paid off and you’re feeling like the best version of yourself.  You won’t need quite as much intervention and as a result, you will enter a maintenance phase at a substantially reduced rate. However, your program benefits will remain unchanged.

WHAT IF I DON'T WANT TO JOIN?

If you decide not to join the program, your initial costs will be the same ($300 for the comprehensive evaluation). Each follow-up visit will be $250. For the first three months, you will need to come in every 4-6 weeks visits to ensure stability. If all seems well at that point, we recommend you come in every three or four months, so the doctor can evaluate your progress. You will not have the same access as club members do – any changes to your treatment plan can only be made during scheduled office visits. At any time, if you decide to join the program, we will be happy to help you get enrolled. By signing up, you’ll receive a 10% discount on all prescriptions from the Compounding Pharmacy of America as well as exclusive discounts and invitations to members only events.

After the first year, provided you’ve been compliant with your program and your hormone levels have remained stable, the cost of your visits will be reduced to $200 as you enter the maintenance phase. You will need blood-work once a year and will be asked to see the doctor at least twice a year.

 

BHRT Costs
Comprehensive Exam & Program Creation $300
Scheduled Follow-Up Visits (min. 4x) $1,000
Total Cost $1,300

Even those patients that have been taking hormones for years and don’t think they need this level of personalized care could benefit from joining the BHRT Club. Overall, the cost is lower, the prescription fees are reduced, and you might find that what you’ve been doing for years could be improved upon with a little extra attention. Perhaps a prescription change, the addition of a supplement, or just guidance with nutrition and exercise could make a huge difference that you didn’t think was possible. When you come in for your free consultation, be sure to ask your provider about the BHRT Club and how it could help you.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

As stated above, the initial consultation is free. The comprehensive evaluation is $300 and you will leave that appointment with a plan.  Should you decide to enroll in the program, the fee is $80 per month for the next 11 months (or a one-time payment of $800 – an $80 savings). If you choose not to enroll, each follow up visit will be $250.
