Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that are identical, on a molecular level, to the ones produced by the body naturally. They are easier for the body to accept and absorb. They can help reduce hormone imbalance in an efficient way which can lead to the management of a variety of disorders.
We do a detailed test to ascertain current hormonal levels and identify imbalances. BHRT is then used to utilize the right combination of hormones to reach a targeted hormone level in the body. It has been effective in relieving menopausal symptoms, as well as in reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Many metabolic and cardiac diseases could be prevented or managed through BHRT.
Benefits of BHRT
- BHRT can be used for treating both men and women when their levels of hormones drop or become unbalanced. It is used most frequently for easing menopause and pre-menopause symptoms, such as night sweats, mood changes, hot flashes, memory loss, sleep issues, low sex drive, and weight gain.
- It could also be used for treating other conditions such as insulin resistance, adrenal and thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, and fibromyalgia.
- It can help in reducing the risks of diabetes, cataract, and tooth loss. It has also been proven to help in improving skin hydration, thickness, and elasticity, as well as in reducing wrinkles.
- BHRT has been shown as being effective in terms of improving the quality of life and general well-being of those who have undergone cancer treatments that affected their estrogen levels. It provides relief from cancer treatment-related symptoms such as incontinence, migraines, insomnia, and low libido.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is available in a variety of forms.

Our medical experts will evaluate our patients and decide which form would be the best for them and their lifestyles. Patients might be needed to get monitored regularly once BHRT starts, in order to evaluate and monitor the body’s response to the therapy.
