BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT)
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
This therapy is a precise process of replacing what hormones the body is missing due to age, chronic stress, or both, to restore balance and correct unnecessary symptoms.
Hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, thyroid and the adrenals regulate an enormous range of body functions, and when they are under or overproduced, we can experience unwanted symptoms. With the use of bioidentical hormones, we can balance these hormones to restore our levels and feel better. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and are similar in molecular structure to the hormones produced naturally by the human body. We believe testing all hormone levels and adrenal function is necessary to create true hormonal balance.
