What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?

Your hormones play an essential role in your mood, energy levels, libido, and overall health. As you age, your hormone levels change, which can create imbalances in both men and women alike. This can lead to decreased libido, hot flashes, fatigue, PMS, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, mood swings, and more. At Cameron Wellness and Spa, Drs. Todd Cameron and Shawn Postma specialize in providing bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to regulate the hormones in the body. As a natural alternative to synthetic hormones, BHRT is commonly used to treat the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause. To find out how you could benefit from hormone replacement therapy, book an appointment at our office in Salt Lake City, UT.

Who is a candidate for hormone replacement therapy?

Women approaching menopause or men with low testosterone levels may be helped by bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Treatment is known to help patients enhance libido, mood, sleep patterns, memory, and more. Candidates for hormone therapy should be in good general health, without a history of certain cancers, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, or blood clots. Pregnant or expecting women are also not candidates for treatment at this time. Our team at Cameron Wellness and Spa can speak with you about your medical history and help decide if this therapy is safe and effective for your specific needs.

How Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Works (BHRT)

During a consultation at our SLC office, our team will get to know you and learn about your symptoms, health history, and preferences. Diagnostic tests will be conducted to check your hormone levels. We take a patient-centered approach in order to provide the ideal customized dose of hormones, which may include testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, DHEA, pregnenolone, or a combination of hormones. Bioidentical hormones can be given as a capsule, suppository, cream, or injection. Hormone therapy is medically supervised so you will need to schedule follow-up visits so we can monitor your outcomes and make any needed adjustments over the next several weeks. In general, bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) produces few side effects because it involves hormones that are molecularly identical to natural human hormones.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) helps to rebalance the levels of hormones in your body when they decrease due to the natural effects of aging.

These hormones are replaced with bio-identical duplicates that can restore your hormones to the balance they had when you were younger. These help you to look, feel, and function with rejuvenated energy and a more youthful appearance.
