Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Bioidentical hormones are hormones that have the same molecular structure as our own. With age our hormones tend to decline causing unpleasant side effects and imbalance. BHRT can help to restore our hormones back to optimal levels resulting in better memory, stronger bones, more energy, improved metabolism and a youthful glow. 

Advantages of Bioidentical Hormones:

  • The body can utilize and metabolize them in a similar way to our natural hormones.

  • Each formula is customized to your individual, unique physiology using either pharmaceutical  or compounded forms.

  • Regular testing and evaluation will help determine what is best for you

  • Hormones increase stem cells which helps with repair and regeneration

  • They are safer than synthetic versions.
