Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Balance Your Hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Hormonal imbalance can occur for many different reasons. An unhealthy diet, aging, and other underlying health problems can all contribute to your hormones not functioning properly. Everything from your immune function to your growth is controlled by your hormones so even a slight imbalance can have serious health consequences.

The good news is you have the option of undergoing Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) to help your body achieve proper balance again. BHRT is different from other hormone therapies as it offers a more-natural approach to fixing your hormonal problems.

What is BHRT?

BHRT is used to treat both men and women alike when they are suffering from hormone-related problems. In BHRT, bioidentical hormones are used. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the ones you have in your body, even though they are manmade.

Common hormones that are used in treatment include:

  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Estrogen
  • DHEA
  • Growth hormone
  • Thyroid hormone
  • Melatonin
  • Oxytocin
  • Cortisol
  • Insulin

These hormones come in various forms including pills, creams, gels, and injections. A health professional at Northwest Lifestyle Health can help you identify what hormone your body needs most as well as what form you should take it in.

BHRT can assist in reducing symptoms related to hormone depletion such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Depression and mood swings
  • Memory loss
  • Weight problems
  • Hot flashes
  • Loss of libido
  • Cold intolerance

BHRT is a viable option for anyone who wishes to alleviate these symptoms.
