Hormonal imbalance has no one-size-fits-all approach. And yet many in the medical field continue to treat it as if there’s one solution that works for everyone.

One approach we take when helping patients find balance is BHRT. Whether you’re acquainted with this treatment or have never heard about it, we are going to walk you through all the basics today!


BHRT Uncovered

Deciding on a hormone treatment can be overwhelming, there are tons of options! You have creams, patches, pills, and vaginal rings just to name a few. However, many patients, men and women, are left feeling unsatisfied and dealing with untreated symptoms. Our answer to this is BHRT.

Here are some fast facts:

BHRT, or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, is a type of hormone therapy that uses hormones that are structurally identical to the substances as they naturally occur in your body. It has been a favorite for both men and women coping with the aging process.

  • Bioidentical hormones derive from plants, giving you an all-natural solution.
  • Your practitioner determines your dose based on your unique needs according to blood tests.
  • You will see improvements within the first 2 weeks, but 8 weeks is necessary to feel the full effects.

Who Is BHRT For?

Hormone imbalance is serious, and while it affects everyone and some people have more extreme symptoms than others, if left untreated it can have grave health consequences.



When thinking about hormones and imbalances most people think of women in menopause. While it is the biggest culprit, there are other periods of life that may bring about imbalances.

Do you feel fatigued, experience mood swings, noticing hair loss, stubborn belly fat, and loss of libido?

These are just a few of the many signs of hormonal imbalance.



Aging is completely natural and you will likely notice the effects of a dip in testosterone level as early as your 30s.
