Hormone Replacement Therapy
With balanced hormones, menopause can be some of the greatest years of a woman’s life! Hormone function is the roadmap to our mood, metabolism, bone health, cardiovascular health, memory and cognition, and sexual function and satisfaction. Perimenopausal symptoms can start around age 35 and become more intense into the 40’s and 50’s. Hormone balance is unique to each individual and should not be approached as one size fits all.
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
BHRT is a method of hormone replacement therapy that uses hormones that are the same chemical structure that the patient is born with. It is designed to help maintain optimal hormone levels in a person’s body.
BHRT vs. Synthetic HRT
Synthetic hormones do not mimic the same chemical structure our body was born with, requiring more energy for the cells and receptors to recognize and use, failing to produce a balanced hormone response. BHRT is designed to produce the same hormone response as our body’s natural hormones, making it a preferred choice for hormone replacement therapy.
Benefits of BHRT
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can provide a variety of benefits such as relief of menopausal symptoms, prevention of memory loss, cardiovascular health, bone protection, growth and repair, and sexual function improvement. BHRT is a customized solution that can help balance hormones unique to each individual.
Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Right for You?
Hormone replacement therapy can be an effective option for those experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance. It is important to speak with a healthcare professional to determine if BHRT is the right option for you. Hormone levels can be tested through blood or saliva, allowing healthcare professionals to better understand an individual’s hormone profile and create a personalized treatment plan.
