What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
BHRT has existed for over 20 years. The major benefit of BHRT is that treatment doses are individualized and the mixture of products may not be commercially available.
Bioidentical hormones, sometimes referred to as natural hormones, are used to treat menopause symptoms, perimenopause, and post-menopause.
Bioidentical hormones are those that are molecularly identical to the hormones that are produced in the body.
These hormones are chemicals that are derived from sources of yam or soybean. Steroids and hormones are taken from animals and plants then altered to be identical in molecular structure.
The steroids and hormones are then formed as a cream, oral, suppository or injections so the body can absorb them quickly.
Bio-identical hormones are much different from synthetic hormone replacement drugs in that bio-identical hormones are metabolized, stored, and converted into other hormones naturally.
There are much less side effects to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy because the hormones are natural and our bodies metabolize bioidentical hormones the way it's designed to. Synthetic hormones can often be quite strong and produce unbearable side effects.
The compounded bioidentical hormones can be made to match each womans individual needs. This is something thats just impossible with commercially produced products.
The bio-identical hormones used in Hormone Replacement Therapy have the exact same molecular structure as the hormones found in the womans body prior to menopause.
