Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

What Is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy? (BHRT)

Your body’s hormones control most of your bodily functions. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. When your natural hormones are out of balance, it can have a big impact on your health and wellness. When your hormones drop or become unbalanced, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is an effective solution to hormone issues.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can be used to treat men and women. Although, it is mainly used to treat menopause and other hormonal imbalances. It may also help treat other conditions like:
  • adrenal and thyroid disorders
  • osteoporosis
  • fibromyalgia

 Bio-identical hormones are scientifically modified substances taken from plants. These forms of hormones are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are the major 3 hormones supported with bio-identical hormones therapy. However, you can get a treatment plan for many different hormonal issues.

Menopause and Andropause
Menopause and Andropause are natural conditions that everyone will face eventually. In the case of menopause, around the age of fifty, a woman’s ovaries stop producing the hormones that have been keeping her body young, strong, and healthy. The same thing happens to men in Andropause. Only with men it is not as sudden. Lack of these vital hormones is the major reason for the weakness and frailty that happens as we age. Our treatments combine effective natural therapeutics, nutritional interventions, and bio-identical hormone therapy when appropriateReplacing the hormones as they become deficient is one of the best things to do to stay strong and vital as we get older.
