Bio-identical Hormone Therapy

BHRT can be used to treat men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. It’s most frequently used to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause.  It may also be used to improve symptoms of cancer treatment or to treat conditions such as:

  • insulin resistance

  • adrenal and thyroid disorders

  • osteoporosis

  • fibromyalgia

Bioidentical hormones are manmade hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those the human body produces. Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment. Bioidentical hormones come in various forms, including:

  • patches

  • creams

  • gels

  • injections
