Bioidentical Hormones Replacement Therapy for Men and Women

Category: Blog

Hormone replacement therapies help men and women find relief as they age and go through the transitions associated with aging (i.e. menopause and andropause). Traditionally given synthetically (HRT), a new, natural option has emerged.

Bioidentical hormones are identical to those produced by the human body, derived from plant tissues, and engineered to match those hormones created by our own body. These hormones are then processed into pellets, which are simple and easy to take.

BHRT promotes a simple and effective delivery option, due to it being more similar, structurally, to our own hormones.

Benefits of BHRT:

·         Improved bone density and decreased risk of osteoporosis

·         Decreased hot flashes

·         Decreased risk of endometrial and breast cancer

·         Improved cholesterol levels

·         Decreased loss of muscle mass/ increased strength

·         Enhanced libido

·         Decreased risk of depression

·         Decreased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

·         Improved sleep

·         Improved concentration and mood

 

Side effects of BHRT are rare, and in fact, many doctors suggest there are fewer adverse reactions with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) as opposed to conventional (synthetic) hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Each bioidentical hormone prescription is custom-compounded, based on each patient’s individual diagnostic results.
