What is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy?
A more natural method of treatment, called bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), has become increasingly popular among doctors and patients alike.
What is the difference between synthetic hormone replacement therapy and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy?
Unlike synthetic hormones, bio identical hormones are made to have the identical molecular structure of the hormones made by your own body, so your body can metabolize them as it was designed to do, minimizing side effects. Additionally, as opposed to the general, mass-produced synthetic hormones, bio identical hormones can be individually matched to each woman’s specific hormonal needs. They can be prescribed through your drug plans or compounded.
