Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a medical treatment designed to address hormone imbalances in the body using hormones that are identical in molecular structure to those naturally produced by the human body. This therapy has gained popularity as an alternative to traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) due to its potential benefits and customization options.

What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a medical approach used to alleviate the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances, primarily during menopause or andropause (male menopause). It involves the administration of hormones to restore hormonal levels to their optimal range, thus providing relief from various symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, and more.
