Hormone Therapy

Welcome to the world of BHRT! In recent years, more and more people have been turning towards BHRT as a natural and safe alternative to traditional hormone therapy.

At YES MD Atlanta, our highly regarded hormone physician, Kent G. Knott, M.D., specializes in this innovative approach that can significantly improve your health, quality of life, and life span. His holistic approach has proved successful for many patients across all ages, genders, and lifestyles.

What is BHRT?

BHRT, or Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, is a natural and safe alternative to traditional hormone therapy.

It involves replacing hormones that have depleted from the body due to aging or medical conditions with ones identical to those naturally produced by the body. The hormones used in BHRT are derived from plant sources, which makes them bio-identical or exactly like human hormones.

The benefits of hormone replacement therapy include improved mood, energy levels, sex drive, quality of sleep, memory, mental clarity, and bone density. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other chronic illnesses associated with hormonal imbalances.

BHRT is widely popular because it has no adverse side effects commonly seen in traditional hormone therapy, such as blood clots or breast cancer risks. Dr. Knott at YES MD Atlanta specializes in this innovative approach. He offers holistic treatments catering to patients of all ages, genders, and lifestyles interested in improving their overall health and well-being through natural means.

The Science Behind BHRT: How It Works

BHRT uses hormones identical in structure to those naturally produced by the body, known as bio-identical hormones.

These hormones are derived from plant sources such as yams and soybeans and are made into customized dosages based on an individual’s unique needs. BHRT replaces deficient hormone levels caused by aging or medical conditions, which can relieve symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, low sex drive, fatigue, and weight gain.

One of the key benefits is that unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy using synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones have minimal side effects because they are molecularly identical to what our bodies produce. This results in a negligible risk of blood clots, stroke, heart attack, or breast cancer.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been proven effective for many women going through menopause and males going through testosterone changes that typically start in their 40s. At YES MD Atlanta, we believe in treating each patient holistically with personalized care plans tailored specifically to meet their particular needs ensuring safe outcomes enjoyed over time and maximizing quality of life!

The Benefits of BHRT: Why Choose This Therapy?

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) offers a whole host of benefits that traditional hormone therapy cannot match.

  • Utilizes Naturally Derived Hormones — BHRT uses naturally derived hormones structurally identical to the body’s natural hormones. This makes them easier for the body to metabolize and absorb, minimizing side effects compared to synthetic hormones.
  • Customized for Each Patient — At YES MD Atlanta, we take a personalized approach to BHRT. Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan that considers their specific hormonal needs, lifestyle habits, and medical history. This customization ensures optimal results with minimal risks and discomfort.
  • Improves Overall Health and Well-Being — BHRT has been shown to improve overall health and well-being in both men and women by reducing symptoms related to hormone imbalances such as:
    • Fatigue
    • Anxiety
    • Mood swings
    • Insomnia
    • Weight gain/loss
    • Cardiovascular Disease
If you’re looking for a natural method to restore balance within your endocrine system, then BHRT could be what you’ve been searching for! Why be a prisoner and forced to treat symptoms instead of correcting many of the potential causes of those symptoms? It is not unusual for BHRT patients to reduce or stop many medications to treat symptoms.

How Much Does BHRT Cost?

One commonly asked question about BHRT is how much it costs. The price varies depending on several factors, such as the specific treatment plan your provider recommends.

However, on average, patients can expect to pay between $250-$500 monthly for BHRT treatments.

Despite the cost, patients have recognized that BHRT is worth the investment in their health and well-being. By balancing hormones naturally with bio-identical hormone therapy, patients may see a reduction in symptoms related to menopause or andropause, such as hot flashes, mood swings, weight gain, and low energy levels., Patients who have tried traditional synthetic hormone replacement therapy often report side effects like bloating or irritability, which are uncommon when using bioidentical hormones. In addition to symptom relief, BHRT provides benefits such as increased bone density, helping prevent osteoporosis, along other chronic issues related to aging.

Since treatment plans vary from person to person, we recommend scheduling a BHRT consultation at YES MD Atlanta. We will discuss your concerns, needs, and goal to develop a personalized plan and provide you with a quote for your treatment!

Frequently Asked Questions About BHRT

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a topic of growing interest and importance for many people. Nevertheless, there are still some questions surrounding this treatment.

Many patients wonder if this type of therapy really works or if it's just another health fad with no scientific basis. Fortunately, the evidence supports the use of BHRT as an effective method for improving hormone imbalances and reducing symptoms such as hot flashes, insomnia, mood changes, and low energy levels. 


However, it's important to note that each patient may respond differently to this therapy depending on their health status and other individual factors.

At YES MD Atlanta, we offer various BHRT methods to ensure that each patient’s therapy is a perfect fit for their needs and lifestyle. We offer customized creams, injections, drops, capsules, lozenges, and more. 


However, it’s important to note that we do not offer bioT pellets. Pellets must be surgically implanted, which causes pain and can come with risk. In addition, using pellets doesn’t allow for your dosage to be adjusted and limits the availability to customize your BHRT. For the aforementioned reasons, we choose to not provide pellets as a BHRT option.

The most common hormones treated with BHRT include:

  • Testosterone
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • DHEA
  • Cortisol
  • Thyroid (the most commonly overlooked, under-treated hormone condition)

If you’re considering BHRT, it’s important to know that it is a lifelong commitment. This is essential so we can ensure your hormones continue to be leveled as you age.
