Menopause—BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT)

Bioidentical hormones have received a lot of attention over the last several years. Bioidentical hormones are an option worth exploring for women experiencing the symptoms of menopause but who are reluctant to try traditional hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and have been modified to have the exact same chemical structure as hormones produced within the human body. Bioidentical hormones function within the body just as if the body had produced them. Our compounding pharmacists prepare these hormones most commonly as creams that absorb into the skin. Bioidentical hormones make it possible to customize therapy for the individual. Dosage forms can be designed with various strengths and combinations of hormones – whatever is best for that particular person. You are your own unique individual. Why not have your own individualized hormone replacement therapy customized to meet your specific needs?

Get informed. There are a lot of studies and information available on the benefits of BHRT. These 2 studies are a good start.
