Bio-identical Hormone Therapy

|What is Bio-identical Hormone Therapy (BHT)|

Bioidentical Hormone therapy (BHT) is supplementation using natural, plant based hormones, in doses to replace to the natural premenopausal levels. If successful, symptoms of hormone imbalance should subside and long-term effects of hormone imbalance, or low levels of hormones, should be reduced or completely eliminated.

The first step is having your hormones tested at any age, in order to obtain a individual snapshot of your personal hormone needs.

The second step is to develop a treatment plan to help women achieve perfect hormone balance, with bioidentical hormones, supplements and lifestyle changes.

Conventional HT uses a variety of synthetic estrogen and progestin products that are similar, but most often not identical to what the body naturally produces. Conventional estrogen replacement products come from a variety of sources, including from the urine of pregnant mares. Many times these chemical differences can cause uncomfortable side effects, and may not provide all of the benefits of bioidentical hormones.

Bioidentical hormones are made from hormone precursors found in yams and soy plants. Because the body does not have the ability to turn these precursors into hormones, they go through a chemical process that converts them into molecules, that are identical to the hormones that are produced by the body. Bioidentical hormone products are made specifically for each woman, a trained and often certified compounding pharmacist customizes each prescription to match unique body chemistry, according to the prescribed dose that is based on each woman’s individual’s blood tests and personal needs.
