Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is different than standard Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) in that Bio-Identical Hormones are molecularly identical to your own hormones. Therefore, your body absorbs, metabolizes and excretes them just the same as if they were your own.
Many women suffer from PMS, severe menstrual cramping, irregular periods, headaches, hot flashes and other symptoms of hormonal imbalance. They also have concerns about taking synthetic hormones after menopause to prevent osteoporosis and other discomforts. For many women, balancing hormones using Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy is an attractive option to relieve each of these symptoms.
Contrary to what many men think, they are not immune to the effects of hormonal changes over time. Men in mid-life will often notice a lack of motivation, strength, enthusiasm or sex-drive that has occurred gradually over time. Due to the effects of certain toxins in the environment, even younger men sometimes find themselves dealing with these symptoms. Testing for and balancing male hormones has become a very effective tool to alleviate these problems.
