Restoring Hormonal Balance
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the replacement of deficient hormones with hormones that are chemically identical to those that the body naturally produces, but have declined due to aging or illness.
This approach is the same as using people with deficiency in thyroid hormone who are commonly treated by using the “bio-identical” prescription hormone, thyroxine.
BHRT has improved the quality of life for millions of women who suffer from hormonal imbalances such as pre-menopause, peri-menopause, post-menopause, premenstrual syndrome or polycystic ovarian syndrome. The process for achieving hormonal balance includes an assessment of hormone levels and evaluation of signs and symptoms, followed by the replacement of deficient hormones in the most appropriate dose via the most effective route for each woman, and monitoring to fine tune the therapy.
