Everything you wanted to know about BHRT

Your body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. So, when your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being.

Often, when people’s hormones drop or become unbalanced, they turn to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to ease symptoms.  Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a “natural” solution to hormone issues. But what exactly is BHRT, and how is it different from other hormone replacement therapies?

In short, bioidentical hormones have the exact same chemical structure as hormones made by the human body. This is important, because for a replacement hormone to fully act like the natural hormone produced by our bodies, the chemical structures of both must match identically. Non-bioidentical hormones are synthetic hormones that have different molecular structures than hormones produced by our bodies. Because non-bioidentical hormones do not match the hormones they are replacing, side effects and health risks can occur.

The Goal of BHRT

Putting you back into balance

As we age, our hormone levels naturally decrease. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy – or BHRT – provides your body with an adequate supply of a deficient hormone in a form that is molecularly identical to that which your body produces. Because bioidentical hormones replicate the chemical structure of the hormones they are replacing, the hormone’s normal healthy physiologic effects are restored. Because every person is unique and hormone levels vary, we customize a BHRT program for each patient based on symptoms, consultation, an evaluation of laboratory blood tests, and the identification of optimal hormone levels. While the general goal of BHRT is to return your hormones to optimal levels, specific goals include:

  • Alleviating of the symptoms caused by decreased production of hormones, such as mood swings, sleep problems, night sweats, decreased libido and sexual function, increased body fat, hot flashes, and anxiety.
  • Re-establishing the protective benefits that were originally provided by higher levels of your naturally occurring hormones, including cardiovascular health, immune function, balance, and bone density.
  • Reversing diseases associated with aging, such as osteoporosis, exercise intolerance, loss of strength, decreasing muscle mass, fatigue, and mental clarity.
  • Enhancing your quality of life, sense of well-being, and enjoyment.
