Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a type of hormone therapy that uses hormones that are identical in chemical structure to the hormones naturally produced by the human body. BHRT is used to treat a range of hormonal imbalances, including those that occur during menopause, andropause, and other conditions.
Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which uses synthetic hormones, BHRT uses hormones that are derived from natural sources, such as yam or soy. The hormones used in BHRT are compounded in a pharmacy to create an individualized treatment plan that is tailored to each patient’s specific needs.
The benefits of BHRT include:
BHRT is tailored to each patient’s individual needs, which means that the treatment is more effective and has fewer side effects.
BHRT uses hormones that are identical in structure to those produced by the human body, which means that the hormones are more easily absorbed and metabolized by the body.
Because BHRT uses natural hormones, it has fewer side effects than traditional hormone replacement therapy.
BHRT can help to reduce symptoms of hormonal imbalances, which can improve quality of life for many patients.
It’s important to note that BHRT is not suitable for everyone. Patients with a history of certain types of cancer, blood clots, or liver disease may not be good candidates for BHRT. It’s important to consult with a healthcare provider before starting BHRT to determine if it is a suitable treatment option.
BHRT can be administered in several different forms, including creams, gels, patches, and pellets. The type of BHRT that is used will depend on the patient’s symptoms and individual needs.
BHRT is used to treat a range of symptoms that occur as a result of hormonal imbalances. These symptoms can include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, mood swings, and decreased libido. BHRT can also be used to treat conditions such as osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.

Have you not been feeling quite like yourself?
You may be a candidate for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Bio-identical hormones have the SAME EXACT chemical structure as the hormones your body naturally produces. Over time, the body stops producing these hormones, causing symptoms such as weakness, poor concentration, decreased libido, and more.
BHRT can help to alleviate many of these symptoms, and help you feel like yourself again!
