What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Hormones are chemical messengers that affect nearly every aspect of your health, from metabolism to mood. However, with age or as a result of certain medical conditions, their production can decline. BHRT involves the use of Bio-identical hormones to restore the body’s natural hormonal balance.

These Bio-identical hormones are completely natural and derived from plants. What makes them unique is that they have the same molecular structure as the hormones made in your body. While BHRT is available for a wide range of hormones, it’s most commonly used to address those tied to reproductive health and thyroid function, such as:

  • Testosterone
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Triiodothyronine (T3)
  • Thyroxine (T4)

Who Needs Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Reduced hormone levels can affect both men and women and occur at any age. While not all hormonal imbalances present with symptoms at first, many result in:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression and irritability
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness
  • Weight changes
  • Thinning hair
  • Facial hair growth in women
  • Joint aches and pains
  • Hot flashes

Undergoing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help ease or even eliminate these side effects. If you’re experiencing these or other unexplained issues, you may need BHRT.

Who Shouldn’t Get Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement?

Although BHRT is an effective treatment, it isn’t for everyone. You might want to avoid Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy if you are pregnant or may become pregnant or have a history of:

  • Abnormal bleeding of the uterus
  • Blood clots
  • Stroke or heart attack
  • Breast or uterine cancer
  • Gallbladder disease

Our team will review your medical history before you begin BHRT to ensure the treatment is safe for you. We’ll also go over any risks you need to be aware of.


We get to know our patients and treat them like family.  We want to help our neighbors feel their best, and balanced hormone levels may result in better sleep, more energy, fewer ailments, and overall improved well-being.
