Natural (Bioidentical) Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a course of treatment designed to bring your hormone levels back into balance thereby easing the associated physical and mental-emotional symptoms you may be experiencing.  BHRT medications are identical to your own naturally occurring hormones and can be administered orally, transdermally, and by injection. The combination of bioidentical hormones used in your therapy will be specially curated to address your individual needs and medical history. BHRT formulas can supplement a wide range of male and female sex hormones as well as adrenal, pituitary, and thyroid hormones.

Conditions Addressed With BHRT

Your hormones influence a significant number of physical and cognitive functions. For both men and women, different life stages cause hormone levels to fluctuate and eventually, age causes them to decline. These hormonal changes can affect both your physical and mental-emotional health.

While menopause, adrenal fatigue, and thyroid disorders are among the more well-known effects of hormonal fluctuation, there are many others including:

  • Andropause (the male equivalent of menopause)
  • Infertility
  • Fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Sleep issues
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Anxiety & depression

Bioidentical hormone therapies have become a popular option for men and women seeking to bring their hormones back into balance and restore their optimal health and wellness.
