Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
The term “bioidentical” means the hormones in the product are equivalent down to a chemical-level to those naturally produced in your body.
This is also called natural hormone therapy, where “natural” means the hormones in the product are not synthetic (man-made), and are instead sourced from plants or animals. Even still, commercial processing is necessary to arrive at “bioidentical.” Also important to note: traditional hormone therapies may also include some amount of natural hormones.
Some advantages over traditional hormone therapy:
- Products from compounding pharmacies are not subject to the same standards that normal hormonal preparations are required to meet, so you can get the relief you need without compromise.
- The bioidentical hormone product you receive will be custom-tailored to your physical needs, ensuring maximum healing potential.
Some hormones that you may receive could include:
- Thyroid hormones T3 and T4
