Bio-identical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) is the process of restoring and maintaining hormone balance by using hormones that are biologically identical to those produced by the human body. These hormones may include estradiol, estriol, progesterone, pregnenolone, testosterone, DHEA, hydrocortisone and possibly the thyroid hormones T3 and T4.
Bio-identical hormones have been available and used in hormone treatments for decades. In fact, several of these have been used as parts of conventional prescription medications. Compounding medications using BHRT that matches an individual’s unique needs and body chemistry, instead of the “one size fits all” approach, can enhance one’s quality of life by allowing their hormones to work in harmony and balance.
Bio-identical Hormone therapy requires appropriate testing, examination and discussion of symptoms with a healthcare practitioner.
