Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used to treat both men and women experiencing imbalances or drops in their naturally-occurring hormones. Hormones are responsible for most of your essential bodily functions, so when they are disrupted in any way, cascade effects across all your systems can ensue.
Most commonly, BHRT is utilized to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, although we can use them to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Mental clarity
- Low sex drive or libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Insulin resistance
- Adrenal and thyroid disorders
Symptoms that are common with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, memory loss, weight gain, sleep issues, and low libido can be dramatically improved with BHRT. For many other conditions, BHRT can improve vitality, energy, mental clarity, mood, weight loss, and even muscle strength!
BHRT comes in several different forms, and at Ascension Health, we carefully take into consideration your symptoms, medical conditions, and history before making a recommendation for a specific treatment. Options may include:
- Compounded natural hormones
- Nutraceutical supplementation
