BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy)
Life is a balancing act. So are hormones! Having hormones that are out of balance can cause fatigue, weight gain, anxiety, depression, moodiness, poor sleep quality, low energy levels, hot flashes, and low sex drive. Using bioidentical hormones we can naturally improve the symptoms caused by aging. Women can start having symptoms as early as in their 30s.

Traditional hormone replacement vs. Bioidentical hormone replacement:
There are treatments out there that involve chemically modified or synthetic hormones, and you should avoid these completely as they have not been proven to be safe. It is important that your natural hormones are replaced only with hormones which are ‘bioidentical’. This means hormones with identical molecules to those produced by the human body. This therapy is known as ‘Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy’ or BHRT and is the only one you should consider. In addition, hormones also need to be correctly administered, with dosing as close to nature as possible. Lab testing every few months is also needed to make sure the hormones are absorbed in a balanced way. Bioidentical hormones do not carry the harmful health risks that traditional hormone replacement medications do.
How do I get started?
An initial consultation will take place and blood work will be taken to determine your symptoms and hormone deficiencies. We ask that you have a current pap smear (within the year) and a mammogram (within the year) prior to starting hormone therapy. These can be arranged on the day of your initial consultation as well.
