What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a plant-based natural solution to hormonal issues which can drop or become unbalanced for a number of reasons and at different stages of your life. Primarily, they are used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, however, can also be useful to improve symptoms of cancer treatment, osteoporosis, adrenal or thyroid disorders and fibromyalgia.

Bioidentical hormones are different from traditional hormone replacement therapies because they are plant-based hormones which are chemically identical to those that the body naturally produces whereas traditional hormone replacement therapies are made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetic substances.

They are prescribed on a completely individual basis dependant on your blood results. These results will indicate what hormones you need in order to bring your body back to optimum healthy functionality.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy FAQ’s

  • As you age hormone levels drop, particularly for women, and can make a significant impact on your lifestyle. BHRT can help improve many menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, weight gain, sleep issues, night sweats and mood swings. In addition to relieving some of these symptoms, hormone replacement therapy may also reduce your risk of diabetes and cataracts.
  • As your body adjusts to the introduction of hormone replacement therapy, there can be some side effects such as acne, bloating and fatigue. However, these side effects are something which can be discussed during your consultation to determine if BHRT is right for you.
