Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

There are numerous hormones produced in the body such as Progesterone, Estrogen, Testosterone, Thyroxine etc. Due to aging, we start to develop hormonal imbalance such as reduced testosterone in men and reduced progesterone and estrogen in women. Environmental and dietary toxins further exacerbate hormonal imbalance.

Bio-identical hormones are usually called “natural hormone therapy” because bio-identical hormones act in the human body just like the hormones that are produced in our bodies. Bio-identical hormones are derived from plants and are chemically IDENTICAL to those of the human body. Bioidentical hormones come in various forms, including:

  1. Pills
  2. Patches
  3. Creams
  4. Gels
  5. Injections
  6. Pellets

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) seeks to balance the hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and adrenal hormones.
