Bio-identical Therapy (BHRT)

Bioidentical hormone therapy utilizes hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the hormones we make in our bodies. They are not found in this form in nature but are made, or synthesized, from a plant chemical extracted from yams and soy. Bioidentical hormone therapy is often called “natural hormone therapy” because bioidentical hormones act in the body just like the hormones we produce.

Potential benefits of BHRT include:

  • Reduced fatigue
  • Increased sex drive
  • Weight loss
  • Less hair thinning
  • Reduced hot flashes
  • Less dry skin
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved mood
  • Reduced bloating
  • Better memory
