Hormone Therapy Benefits

What is bioidentical hormone therapy?

Traditional hormone therapy has been used as a treatment for hormonal imbalances for years and typically utilizes man-made synthetic hormones sourced from pregnant horse urine, among other sources. A natural alternative that we offer is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Simply put, BHRT are plant-based hormones also made in a lab but are chemically structured the same as the hormones produced by your body. We can make bioidentical hormone therapy treatments tailored to individuals in various forms, from patches and injections to creams and tablets.

Is BHRT just for women?

You’re probably aware of the many benefits of BHRT for women, like reduced vaginal dryness and hot flashes, but hormone therapy is not just for women. Men can have hormonal imbalances, too, and also see significant improvement in overall well-being when taking BHRT. Take a look at some specific hormone therapy benefits both men and women can experience:

  • Improved energy levels
  • Better levels of mood, concentration, and memory
  • Reduced risk of depression
  • Improved sex drive
  • Improved bone density
  • Reduced risk of heart disease
