BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy)
BHRT means hormones in the product are chemically identical to those your body produces instead of synthetic hormones.
Both males and females experience decrease in hormones in as early as 30s.
Males will have these symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue and energy loss, loss of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, mood swings, reduced physical strength and agility, thinning hair, mental fogginess, and muscle atrophy. BHRT will improve all of these symptoms.
Females will have these symptoms such as hot flashes, moodiness, depression/anxiety, low libido, sleep problems, memory loss, weight gain, increased skin wrinkling, fatigue, night sweats, and thinning bones. BHRT will improve all of these symptoms.
There are many factors that can affect hormonal deficiencies in males and females. It could be increased age, food we consume, cosmetics we use, or environmental toxins we are surrounded by.
Everyone should get their home level checked at least once. Complete hormone labs are not commonly ordered in primary care office. Even if they are ordered, it is not easy to correlate with symptoms.
We can treat males with testosterone and thyroid hormones. We can treat females with progesterone, estradiol, testosterone and thyroid hormones.
