Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the use of hormones to help resolve symptoms related to hormonal imbalance or decline in hormone production tied to aging, environmental toxins, food, and a host of other factors. Certain hormone treatments are called “bioidentical” or sometimes “natural” because the types of hormones used are chemically identical (according to molecular studies) to those produced by the human body. Areas where BHRT can be helpful include adrenal fatigue, thyroid disease, metabolic syndrome, and sexual dysfunction. Although fewer risks than synthetic hormones, when undergoing this type of therapy, sound judgement along with awareness of the pros and cons of BHRT, should be considered.
