Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
Hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) is used to balance hormones in both women and in men. Traditionally, conventional HRT uses synthetic forms of hormones that our body cannot break down or metabolize, which can result in side effects.
Unlike synthetic hormones, bioidenticals hormones (BHRT) are derived from plants – including yams and soy. The molecular structure of a bioidentical hormone is identical to that of the hormones our body produces natural and exert the same effect on hormonal receptors. Bioidentical hormones can also be compounded to customize your individual specific hormone replacement needs.
