Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT has become the menopause treatment of choice for many women today. By customizing hormone replacement to the unique needs of each patient, we can make the treatment both safe and more effective. If hormonal imbalances are impacting your health and your quality of life, there are a number of reasons to consider BHRT as your treatment of choice.
Customized to Your Unique Needs
Treatment with bio-identical hormones begins with an assessment of your current hormone levels. Women have a delicate balance of multiple hormones within their system throughout life, and it is that balance that creates harmony and health in the woman’s body. By assessing your current hormone deficiencies, we can offer you precisely what you are lacking and restore balance to your system.
As Natural as Your Own Hormones
Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are a precise match to the substances already found in the body. This means you get the specific substances your body needs, with less risk of side effects. At the same time, bio-identical hormones work more closely with your body’s natural system to produce the best possible effects.
Treats a Variety of Symptoms in a Single Treatment
There are a number of menopausal symptoms that can be effectively relieved through BHRT:
- Hot flashes and night sweats
- Mood swings and irritability
- Depression and anxiety
- Sleep disturbances

- Low energy levels

Provides Preventative Benefits
As women’s bodies change during the menopause years, they increase their risk of certain conditions like osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and dementia. In addition to addressing a wide range of menopausal symptoms, BHRT offers some preventative benefits for those types of conditions:
Helps to reverse loss of bone density that can lead to osteoporosis
Sharpens mental focus and acuity, which could decrease the risk of dementia
Plays a role in regulating cholesterol levels for a lower risk of cardiovascular disease
Helps control weight gain and prevents lean muscle loss, which could lead to a healthier weight and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease
Could reduce the risk of endometrial and breast cancer
