As we age, our hormone production begins to naturally decline. While it is a natural part of aging it can come along with some unpleasant symptoms such as hot flashes, decreased libido, insomnia, irritability, and depression. Luckily, with our advanced medicine, we have methods to treat this decreased production. One such method is BHRT.
What is BHRT?
BHRT (which stands for Bioidentical Replacement Hormone Therapy) is the process of using synthetic hormones to supplement the body when it is deficient. The synthetic hormones used in BHRT are biodentical, meaning that they are nearly indistinguishable from the hormones that our own bodies produce. This is very important as the human body is very sensitive to foreign entities entering the body, so it is imperative that whatever you put into the human body be as close to its natural counterpart as possible.
