Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), sometimes referred to as natural hormones, is used to treat the often intolerable symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and post-menopause. Treatment doses are individualized for each patient – something that is more difficult to accomplish when using synthetic hormones, which can often be too strong, producing problematic side effects. Bio-Identical hormones are often referred to by their more common names and include testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, DHEA, and pregnenolone. Bio-Identical hormones can be formulated as a cream, capsule, suppository, for under the tongue or injection so the body can absorb and metabolize them quickly. There are few side effects because the hormones are identical to humans rather than being manufactured.
What Symptoms Can Be Relieved Using BHRT?
Natural progesterone is made by the ovaries prior to menopause and by the adrenal glands and fat cells after menopause. It is the precursor for natural estrogen and is the single most important hormone in the female body. Natural, bioidentical progesterone corrects hormone imbalance of the two primary female hormones by protecting against the detrimental effects of Estrogen Dominance: too much estrogen and not enough progesterone.
Natural progesterone has many possible positive benefits including:
- Natural Anti-depressant
- Natural Diuretic
- Normalizes Blood Sugar Levels
- Normalizes PMS and Menopausal Symptoms
- Normalizes Blood Clotting
- Normalizes Ovaries
