What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)? BHRT is a solution to the problem of adverse side effects, including increased risks of heart disease and cancer, which can result from the use of synthetic hormones.
BHRT is a safer way to treat hormonal imbalances, as bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and designed to imitate the natural structure and function of human hormones. Not only are bioidentical hormones safer, they are also more effective in treating hormonal deficiencies. Why? Because they’re natural and designed to meet your particular needs, bioidentical hormones are safer for you, they’re more easily metabolized and are more effective than synthetic hormones.
BHRT Treatment for Women
Progressive Health and Rejuvenation offers bioidentical hormone replacement, a type of female hormone therapy in which natural hormones “designed” just for you allow us to treat the cause of your discomfort, and not just the symptoms. During hormone replacement therapy, a specialized compounding pharmacy formulates a custom-made hormone regimen, so you receive precisely the amounts of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone required to replace those your body no longer produces.
Women enduring the debilitating symptoms of menopause often find that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is the ideal solution. Based on testing that determines your current levels of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, our staff prescribes a unique program of natural female hormone replacement especially for you. BHRT relieves symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, decreased libido, weight gain, insomnia, fatigue and more. Additional benefits include protection against osteoporosis and heart disease. We may also recommend exercise and diet modifications that, along with BHRT, help you feel healthier and younger.
