Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy for a Better Life
Hormones are chemical messengers that help all of our organs, tissues, and cells communicate within the body, which is why hormone replacement therapy can be a powerful tool to boost to your health and heal your adrenals. Activities of hormones include food metabolism, maintaining body temperature, cardiovascular health, healthy hair, skin and sleep patterns as well as regulating mood and cognitive functioning. Hormones keep the whole body in balance and are crucial to the health and vitality of both men and women.
After the age of 25, our hormones begin to decline gradually and around the age of 35 most men and women have a hormone deficiency and start to experience a range of symptoms. Symptoms commonly associated with hormone imbalance are:
- weight gain
- Loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles
- muscle loss
- Sexual Dysfunction
- bone loss
- Loss of libido
- hair loss
- sleep disorders
- Mental fogginess
- Loss of motivation
- Vaginal Dryness
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, also known as BHRT, uses naturally occurring bio- identical hormones to bring hormone levels back to optimal levels relieving symptoms and restoring the quality of life we enjoyed in our younger years.

Bio-Identical Vs. Synthetic Hormones
Over the last ten years of treating patients with hormone deficiencies, we’ve come to develop basic guidelines for treating our patients.
- Prescribe hormones only when there’s a proven deficiency shown by proper testing and medical evaluation.
- Prescribe the smallest dose possible to restore healthy hormone levels without side effects.
- Only prescribe Bio-Identical hormones – never synthetic.
Bio-Identical hormones have been available for over 50 years and are a natural and safe option for hormone replacement . Bio-Identical Hormones are processed using Wild Yam and Soybean plants. These hormones match the same chemical structure found in human hormones. Creating the same response as hormones found naturally in the body which means an effective treatment with low side effect profile. Bio-Identical hormones are individualized and made specifically for each patient.
Synthetic Hormones are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies from both man-made and animal sources. For example, synthetic estrogen is often produced from the urine of a pregnant horse and contains 40 + different estrogens. The human body contains three estrogens. Synthetic hormones are not a match to human hormones and are less effective with a high side effect profile. Synthetic hormones are prepackaged and cannot be individualized.

Hormones Levels Can Have a Major Impact on Weight Control
Most of us don’t realize the vast reach of hormones within the body, and how they can affect the body’s ability to maintain a healthy weight. Insulin is a metabolic hormone that most people are familiar with. However estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, human growth hormone (HGH) and more all play a direct role in how the body is able to process food and convert it effectively into energy and bodily tissues. When these levels fall out of their optimal zones, it can be nearly impossible to lose excess weight.
The physicians at BHRC can test your hormone levels simply and easily, then help you to get them back in line so that you can have an easier time getting the body you deserve.
