Bio-identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT)
Have you considered undergoing hormone replacement therapy? If so, we caution you to hold off just for a moment while we talk about another type of HRT that may actually be better for you and more effective. It’s called bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and it’s designed to work more closely with your body than the typical synthetic hormone treatments.
What is BHRT?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can be defined as the use of hormones that are structured exactly the same as the hormones naturally present in the human body. For women, it’s used for the treatment and management of symptoms associated with menopause, including perimenopause and postmenopause. For men, BHRT can alleviate the symptoms of andropause.
What Goes Into Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Treatment?
BHRT is made at a compounding pharmacy. You see, the hormones are custom made for each patient. No two people will have the exact same formulation. This is what makes it so special and so effective. Your doctor will administer several tests to determine what levels of hormones would be appropriate for you. Much of the time, these hormones are made using soybeans or wild yams.
How is BHRT Administered?
When you’re placed on a treatment program, you will be given BHRT in a number of different ways, from a rapid dissolve tablet (RDT), to a pill, to a topical cream, to an injection. For women, it usually includes a combination of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone.
