Bio-Identical hormone Therapy (BHRT)
BHRT is a popular therapy not only for women but for men as well
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT has been a treatment for menopausal and pre-menopausal symptoms for quite some time and more recently public interest and demand has exploded. Suzanne Somers was the first well known personality promoting BHRT through her books, Ageless, The Sexy Years, Breakthrough and through her many appearances speaking on the subject. She describes how BHRT relieved her menopausal symptoms, increased her energy levels, increased her sexual desire and recaptured her overall zest for life! In actuality, BHRT is a popular therapy not only for women but for men as well. The main hormone panels tested for are:
- Andropause (male menopause)
- Adrenal (fatigue/stress)
- Thyroid (hypo/hyper)
- Growth Hormone
By balancing and optimizing these hormone levels, patients report an increase in lean muscle mass, decrease in body fat, greater energy and overall zest for life, sharper thinking and memory, greater sexual desire and performance.
There are great differences between bio-identical and synthetic hormones. Bio-identical hormones are created in a lab and possess the exact molecular structure as those produced by your body. Synthetic hormones are also created in a lab however possess an altered molecular structure. The cells in your body absorb and synthesize bio-identical hormones easily and seamlessly whereas synthetic hormones often cause a variety of side effects and conditions. As medical studies worldwide have concluded, bio-identical hormones are a safer and more natural alternative to their synthetic versions.

The aging process depletes the body’s natural hormones; by balancing and optimizing these hormone levels…patients report an increase in lean muscle mass, decrease in body fat, greater energy and overall zest for life, sharper thinking and memory, greater sexual desire and performance.
For women, growing older often presents changes to the whole mind and body. Although aging is inevitable, loss of beauty, health, and happiness are not.
As menopause approaches, the ovaries produce progesterone and estrogen more slowly, leading to erratic menstrual cycles before they cease entirely. As ovaries permanently stop producing these hormones, other areas of the body continue to produce estradiol, testosterone, and other hormones.
These and other symptoms occur not only in older women, but in younger women after ovarian removal surgery. Regardless of the cause or time of menopause onset, hormone replacement therapy helps you feel like yourself again.
How Testosterone Helps Women
Testosterone may seem like a “man’s hormone,” but women benefit from it as well. With a 30 percent decrease in testosterone during menopause, women experience lower metabolisms, decreased muscle tone, and sexual side effects. However, testosterone supplements help women overcome vaginal dryness, regain libido, and enjoy intimate experiences once again.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has come a long way, leading to safe and effective procedures. When first seeking HRT, patients receive a comprehensive consultation, including a health and longevity assessment to determine which blend of hormones will yield the best results.
With modern medical technology, physicians can use your body’s unique hormone molecule structures to produce bioidentical hormones. Physicians administer these treatments via a gentle injection or by cream, incorporating them into a holistic treatment program that includes thorough consultations and consistent monitoring.
Should I Pursue HRT?
Of the myriad HRT treatment regimens available, one or more will likely serve your needs. However, other medical conditions and their treatments may interact negatively with HRT. Therefore, full honesty and clinical integrity are crucial to HRT practitioners as they help patients decide which course of treatment is right for them.
