Hormone Replacement Therapy in Florida
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy: Helping thousands of patients find balance naturally
In every field of medicine, there are some patients who don’t respond to traditional methods of treatment. Sometimes they need medicine at strengths that are not manufactured by drug companies, or perhaps they simply need a different method of ingesting a medication.
Dr. Robert Fishman is a leading expert in male and female hormone balancing.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is the practice of supplementing or replacing hormones which your body is no longer producing.
Natural hormones are prescribed by a physician and regulated by the FDA. Derived from soybeans and wild yams, natural hormones are converted in a laboratory into hormones identical to those produced by your own body. We call them “natural” or “bioidentical” because their molecular structure matches those of your body’s own hormones exactly. This becomes important when a hormone binds with your body’s hormone receptor. In other words, natural hormones are received by your body as though they were your own-they fit your hormone receptors the way they’re supposed to.
Why Consider Hormone Replacement Therapy?

A noninvasive and extremely accurate saliva test will measure an individual’s reproductive hormone levels and can be used to monitor any hormone supplementation. This helps ensure that a woman gets the correct prescription at the correct dosage, for her individual needs.
A baseline saliva test conducted in a women’s thirties can be particularly beneficial to her future hormone health, as it can help establish her optimum hormone levels.
