Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT entails the use of manmade hormones from plant-based estrogen that are chemically identical to those that our human body produces. It is used to treat both men and women when their hormonal levels have become unbalanced or have dropped. It is also a treatment to improve symptoms of cancer treatment and other conditions such as insulin resistance, adrenal and thyroid disorder, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia.

The treatment may compromise a variety of hormones such as estrogen progesterone and testosterone administered in various forms such as pills, patches, creams, gels and injections.
