BHRT or Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy are hormones that are compounded to meet each individual patient’s needs. Bio-Identical means that the supplemental hormone is made identical to the body’s human hormone. Effective BHRT provides patients the exact amount of hormones where they are deficient.
BHRT can be administered through patches, creams, pills, injections and pellets.
Synthetic Hormone Replacement
Synthetic hormones are derived from animals while natural, or bio-identical, hormones are derived from plants. Hormone replacement therapy is the reason for bio-identical hormones.
Immediate improvements will be seen in energy levels, as one of the main symptoms of aging is disturbed sleep. You will regain your ability to sleep deeply throughout the night, thus decreasing daytime sleepiness and improving overall alertness, focus, and motivation. With renewed energy, youthful and positive feelings will come back again. Potential for depression will be reduced and you will have a better mood throughout the day.
BHRT is also beneficial for fitness and other active hobbies as it increases muscle and bone strength and aids in the ability to lose weight. Many studies have found that BHRT can prevent bone loss, which can defend against problems such as osteoporosis and bone frailty. Hormonal balance will decrease the likelihood of bone problems such as hip fractures, the need for knee replacements, joint pain, and chronic back pain.
