Is HRT Too Good To Be True?

If hormone replacement therapy is really that great, why don’t more people know about it, and why don’t doctors routinely prescribe it?

The facts about hormone replacement therapy

Testosterone replacement therapy gets a lot of unwarranted lousy press. People associate testosterone with muscle-bound gym bods and dodgy athletes trying to trick the system. Large pharmaceutical companies are also a huge hurdle to getting our message out there, historically bad-mouthing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) simply because they won’t make money if older people are healthy. The reality is that it has turned the lives around for countless men (and women) over the years and has the potential not only to extend people’s lives but to make their senior years more enjoyable, with improved health and energy.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not widely regarded for a few reasons:

  • Most primary care doctors are not trained, hormone specialists
  • Pharmaceutical companies don’t want people to know about it
  • People believe it’s not natural to supplement testosterone

Primary care doctors are not hormone experts

Firstly, the problem with many primary care doctors is the lack of proper understanding of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Most will only prescribe for men with clinical ‘low T,’ which is generally understood to be below 300 ng/dL. Unfortunately for most patients, what is considered ‘normal’ is such an enormous range, typically 300 to 1,000 ng/dL.

For example, for a man who has a 450 ng/dL testosterone level, there is little hope his primary physician will prescribe testosterone treatment. Even if he showed symptoms like depression, erectile dysfunction, and low energy. They would describe his testosterone levels as ‘normal.’ Commonly, doctors just tell people to eat right, exercise to lose weight, and prescribe medications to patch over symptoms without addressing the root issue.

Secondly, insurance companies only cover clinical ‘low T,’ therefore doctors rarely check levels unless patients are really suffering from symptoms. BHRT should theoretically be given to all men over 45 as preventative medicine to avoid the symptoms of Low T. Multiple studies [1] show the benefits of BHRT and how it can truly turn your life around:

  • Maintains and improves cardiovascular health
  • Aids weight loss
  • Reduces type 2 diabetes risk
  • Reduces metabolic syndrome risk
  • Promotes a healthy heart
  • Aids muscle growth
  • Reduces Alzheimer’s risk
  • Improves cognitive brain function
  • Improves energy levels
  • Enhances libido
  • Decreases symptoms of depression
  • Better sleep

Powerful medical companies make money when you're sick

Here comes a powerful thought, if the many age-related diseases associated with Low T were wiped out using BHRT, big pharma companies would lose millions, so they don’t want you to have it!

BHRT is worthless to large pharmaceutical companies for one straightforward reason. As a natural hormone, they cannot patent it; how can anyone own natural testosterone? This brings us to another important point; they can alter the hormone to create a new version and then patent it. These synthetic hormones are the ones that cause harmful side effects, which rather conveniently creates a need for other medications (which they develop) to be sold to remedy the side effects.

Here in the USA, we pay the highest medicine prices in the world. In one study [2] of the top 11 wealthiest countries globally, we had the lowest life expectancy at 78.8 years. They also concluded that the United States spends approximately twice as much as other high-income countries on medical care. If you consider the top 10 causes of death in the USA (2019 National Center for Health Statistics), just think how many of these deaths could be avoided by promoting BHRT and a healthy lifestyle. Then consider how much money could be saved on healthcare nationally. It’s no wonder large pharma companies don’t promote the benefits of BHRT.

Top 10 causes of death in the USA
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Accidents (unintentional injuries)
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases
  • Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis
  • Influenza and pneumonia
  • Intentional self-harm (suicide)

'It's not natural to supplement testosterone'

‘It’s not natural to use testosterone’ is something we hear quite a lot. The funny thing about those who believe this is they are the same people who will happily take statins to lower cholesterol, Viagra® to induce an erection, or Tylenol ® to stop a headache, all synthetic drugs.

Testosterone is ‘natural,’ and with BHRT, we replace what is missing from your body. Yes, it is natural for your hormones to decline with age, especially after age 40. The reason for this? Before the 1900s, the average man’s life expectancy was only 35 years of age! Human physiology hasn’t adapted to the long life afforded by modern medicine. In other words: your life is barely started, but your body is preparing itself for death!

It is not natural to live to 80. We don’t age and then lose our hormones. We age because we lose our hormones, so why not reduce the symptoms of aging with BHRT?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is not a quick fix and should not be seen as a fast-track to a perfect body. BHRT, along with a healthy diet and exercise, can kick start your journey to a brighter, healthier future. Our patients are our biggest advertisement. Once many of them see and feel their lives improve, they want to shout from the rooftops and advise their friends to see what BHRT can do for them.
