Benefits of BHRT

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women

During menopause, the body stops producing the same levels of hormones that it has throughout the reproductive years. This hormonal decrease can result in unpleasant side effects such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and night sweats.  Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) treats these symptoms with medication that replaces the hormones, typically estrogen and progesterone/progestin, that are no longer being produced naturally in the body throughout menopause. BHRT is also often used as an effective prevention against osteoporosis (bone thinning).  

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement  Therapy

Bioidentical hormones are medical hormones that are chemically identical to the hormones produced in an individual person. They are usually synthesized from natural products like yams. The most effective BHRT hormones are prescribed by a medical provider and compounded by a compounding pharmacy to help treat pre, peri, and post-menopausal symptoms. Furthermore, most women find relief from their menopausal symptoms from BHRT, research has shown decreased risks of BHRT compared to conventional HRT or synthetic HRT.

Benefits of BHRT

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is an effective solution for women suffering extreme symptoms of menopause, or for women experiencing premature menopause (menopause before the age of 40) due to a medical condition. BHRT therapy is also a useful treatment for women dealing with Post Partum depression, PCOS, PMS, and fatigue.
