What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?

This isn’t your conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy. BHRT supplies your body with adequate levels of key hormones like estrogen, progesterone as well as androgens and DHEA. However, because it is bio-identical, it presents an attractive science-based alternative for many women who worry about the long term side effects of conventional synthetic-based Hormone Replacement Therapy.

BHRT uses compounds that have the exact same chemical and molecular structure as the key hormones naturally found in the body, liberating you from the intrusive symptoms caused by hormone deficiency and imbalance. Just as importantly, BHRT helps improve your quality of life, vitality and well-being whilst also contributing to slowing the ageing process (as many tissues are influenced by the regenerative effects of hormones). The best practice in taking BHRT is to do so with concurrent monitoring of blood and/or urine hormone levels to establish the optimal range for the individual.

There are more hormones found in the female body than most of us realise. However, BHRT pays close attention to a number of key hormones – those that are significantly reduced once a woman goes into menopause.

Usually, preparations of bioidentical hormones include estrogens, progesterone, DHEA and androgens and occasionally pregnenolone. Prepared either individually or in combination, these select hormones play crucial roles in a woman’s well-being.

A number of studies into the use of traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy, including the well-known 2002 Women’s Health Initiative Study (WHI), have raised questions about its associated risks and benefits, with the result that more and more doctors and women have increasingly looked at alternative, natural treatments.[1]

BHRT uses hormones that act like those that women’s bodies naturally produce from the ovaries and adrenal glands.
