What Is Biomedical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a highly customizable treatment for women and men that restores your body’s hormones to more optimal levels. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body, providing for far fewer potential side effects than synthetic hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can be easily tailored to each individual patient’s needs.
What are Hormones?
Hormones are the bodies chemical messaging system. They are tiny signaling molecules manufactured in the endocrine system and circulate to tissues and organs. There are multiple glands throughout the body. Each gland produces specific hormones designed to carry out certain functions on a cellular level to keep the body in a constant state of homeostasis, or balance. These functions include but are not limited to:
- Heart Rate
- Sexual Function
- Growth and Development
- Sleep Cycles
- Stress Management
As part of the normal aging process, our body’s hormonal function slowly declines and an imbalance occurs. Women typically begin to experience a decline in hormone function during perimenopause and into menopause. A man’s testosterone usually peaks around their late teens to early 20’s, ultimately dropping at an average rate of 1% every year.
With hormones playing a vital role in health and wellbeing, a reduction in the body’s hormone production can sometimes result in a hormone imbalance. Hormonal imbalances refer to either a deficit or an excess in levels of certain hormones in the body.
The Signs and Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Both Men and Women Include:
- Low Libido
- Depression or Mood Swings
- Hot Flashes
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Hair Loss
- Weight Gain
There are treatment options available for hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a cutting-edge treatment option for individuals suffering from hormone imbalance.
