Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Q & A

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone therapy, or BHRT, is used to treat hormone imbalances. In Bioidentical hormone therapy, a mix of hormones is prescribed in medications to address the specific deficiencies the body may be lacking. The compounds used in bioidentical hormone therapy have the same chemical and molecular structure as hormones that the human body produces. Besides estrogen and progesterone, the prescription may include other hormones, such as testosterone, DHEA, and adrenal hormones to stay balanced. 

Who Needs Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone imbalances can begin as early as age 40 due to the environmental and dietary toxins we are exposed to throughout a lifetime.
