BHRT can help to ease the transition of both men and women as they experience hormonal shifts during midlife.
Complete balance between hormones is crucial. As we age, hormonal imbalances begin to manifest, making it difficult to manage the symptoms that accompany these internal shifts. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a safe and effective form of integrative medicine used to treat a variety of conditions associated with these hormonal imbalances, including menopause.
BHRT is an individualized treatment.
BHRT is a natural therapy that uses supplemental doses of hormones that are identical to the hormones that our bodies produce naturally to help restore hormonal balance within the body. Everyone is different. Each dosage is customized according to individual needs. Hormonal shifts in balance happen in both men and women, although in different ways, and more drastically experienced by women. The same hormones are used in female and male treatment, just not in the same doses. The hormones involved in BHRT generally include estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, cortisol and testosterone. Hormonal imbalances are associated with:
- Decreased libido
- Low energy
- Difficulty sleeping
- Aging effects
- Mood shifts
