BHRT. Hormone Replacement.

What is BHRT?

BHRT is a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) used to treat women who are going through menopause and men who are going through andropause.

BHRT can be used when your hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. It is most often used to relieve symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. It may also be used to improve symptoms of cancer treatment or to treat conditions such as:

Bioidentical hormones are artificial hormones derived from plant estrogens that are chemically identical to those produced by the human body. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are among those most commonly replicated and used in treatment. Bioidentical hormones come in several forms, which include:

Bioidentical Hormones And Hormonal Imbalances

When we begin to experience hormonal imbalances a myriad of side effects present themselves. Dealing with these side effects can lead to a declining sense of well-being and can affect our quality of life. Here below are the recognizable side effects of hormonal imbalance:

Why use BHRT?

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy seeks to eliminate side effects by replacing those essential hormones that our bodies require to feel healthier and healthier. Because bioidentical hormones more closely resemble the hormones that a healthy, youthful body produces, our biological processes improve and healthy levels are restored.

Bioidentical hormones are different from those used in traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in that they are chemically identical to those that our bodies produce naturally and are made from plant estrogens . The hormones used in traditional HRT are made from the urine of pregnant horses and other synthetic hormones.

Proponents of bioidentical hormones claim that their products are safer because they are “natural” and their composition is identical to the hormones the body produces naturally. But most experts believe the risks of BHRT and HRT are similar. Compounded bioidentical hormones may carry even more risk. There is no credible evidence that BHRT is more effective than HRT.

BHRT. Symptoms that can be relieved by BHRT.

BHRT is typically used as people age and hormone levels decline, particularly for women who are in perimenopause or menopause. It is used to increase hormone levels that have declined and improve moderate to severe menopausal symptoms, which include:

In addition to helping with symptoms, hormone replacement therapy can also reduce your risk of diabetes, tooth loss and cataracts. There is some evidence that it may help improve skin thickness, hydration and elasticity, and even reduce wrinkles.

For those with cancer who have undergone treatments that affect their estrogen levels, BHRT has been shown to be effective in improving their overall well-being and quality of life. In one study, people with cancer who underwent BHRT found relief from treatment-related symptoms such as migraines, incontinence, low libido and insomnia. The study also found that the rate of breast cancer recurrence was no higher than average.

There may also be side effects that accompany BHRT, particularly in the beginning as your body adjusts to the hormones. Common side effects of BHRT may include:

Many people cannot take BHRT or any form of hormone replacement. Risks and possible side effects may vary among women depending on their medical history. Discuss the pros and cons with your doctor before using any hormone replacement therapy.
