Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

As we age our hormones can decline or become imbalanced. Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) can be used to help replenish the hormones that a women’s body is lacking.

What is BHRT?

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is used to restore balance through plant-derived hormones similar to those found in a woman’s body. These hormones include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA. There is a variety of ways to administer BHRT including cream, pills, troches, and pellet insertion. Administration is based on an individual’s preference, finances, and symptom relief.

Symptoms that may be related to hormone decline or imbalance include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Hot Flashes
  • Night Sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Decreased Libido
  • Irritability/Anxiety
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Mood Swings
  • Fatigue
