Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a customized form of treatment for individuals suffering from hormonal imbalances and deficiencies. Bioidentical hormones are different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in that they’re identical chemically to those our bodies produce naturally and are made from plant estrogens and not derived from animals or produced synthetically. This makes them more readily accepted and efficiently utilized by our bodies. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is most commonly used to treat the symptoms associated with

  • Menopause

  • Peri-menopause

  • Insulin resistance

  • Adrenal or thyroid dysfunction

  • Osteoperosis

  • Fibromyalgia

For women, common symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain and mood swings. Men may experience loss in muscle mass, decreased libido, depression and irritability. Hormones are also involved in processes that affect skin health including collagen production, elasticity, lipid levels and moisture.
