What is BHRT?
BHRT is a safe, proven clinical therapy that rebalances hormone levels that are often responsible for symptoms associated with aging. Bioidentical hormones are designed to precisely match the molecular structures of the natural hormones in your body. Once tailored to your individual needs, these hormones are administered with scientifically supported physician oversight, then fine-tuned using follow up laboratory testing to achieve levels optimized to support your health and well-being.
The primary bioidentical hormone levels that we optimize are:
How can BHRT help?
Hormone imbalances may manifest in both men and women as early as in their mid-thirties. An effective BHRT treatment can mitigate many of the following symptoms including:
- Decreased energy and increased fatigue
- Increased irritability, loss of motivation, and depression
- Low libido, erectile dysfunction, and inability to achieve sexual gratification
- Vaginal dryness and pain with intercourse
- Difficulty losing weight or unanticipated weight gain
- Diminished mental focus, “foggy thinking” and memory loss
- Hot flashes and night sweats
BHRT may also help to prevent diseases including:
- Cardiovascular disease (heart attacks and strokes)
- Cholesterol abnormalities
- Alzheimer’s dementia
- Type II diabetes and other insulin resistance syndromes
BHRT in Women
For women to feel and look their best, their hormones must be in balance. Bioidentical hormone therapy improves energy, vitality, and libido while helping to alleviate vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats. Optimal hormonal balance also leads to improved mood and sleep quality, greater ability to cope with stress, and clearer thinking.
BHRT in Men
The hormone testosterone helps men to live well, remain energetic, and to feel strong and powerful. Testosterone therapy restores vitality, improves endurance, stamina, and sex drive while also improving lean muscle mass, mood, sleep quality, and cognition. Optimal testosterone levels may also improve stress-coping abilities, facilitate clearer thinking and prevent a range of chronic illnesses.
