Bioidentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT) For Women
Combat the effects of aging from the inside out.
Women generally dismiss the symptoms of hormone imbalance as mere side effects of aging. They assume hot flashes, low sex drive, vaginal dryness, night sweats, mood swings and brain fog to be part of the ageing process. But this is partially true. Conditions of hormone imbalance, such as menopause, are an inevitable part of aging, but no woman has to live with this ongoing battle of uncomfortable symptoms that can diminish the quality of life.
It is possible for women to find relief from the symptoms of hormonal imbalances and menopause, such as, thyroid disorders, adrenal fatigue, perimenopause and PMS with Bioidentical Hormonal Therapy.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy For Women (BHRT)
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the most effective and fastest-growing treatment options for women who are suffering from hormonal imbalance. Bioidentical hormones are carefully derived from suitable plants and designed to mimic the function and structure of natural human hormones. This feature makes BHRT a safer and more effective solution since Bioidentical hormones are actually replicas of natural human hormones and they easily fit as hormone receptors within your body, just like a key easily fits into a lock. This perfect fit enables women to achieve an optimized balance and function of affected body systems.
Benefits of BHRT
More Energy – Testosterone is very important for sustaining optimal energy levels in both men and women. It helps in building and maintaining muscular strength, fuelling the body to perform better throughout the day.
Increased Libido – When testosterone levels in the body decline, so does the libido in women. A carefully administered testosterone therapy can revive sexual desire, lead to better orgasms, as well as, increase sexual stamina in women.
Improved Mood – By restoring natural levels of testosterone with the highly effective bioidentical testosterone therapy, the mood swings can be stabilized and can also bring improvement in the overall well-being.
Protected Cardiovascular System – When the testosterone levels are adequate, it leads to improved cardiovascular health and heart function. Testosterone therapy can keep the heart clean and minimize the plaque build-up that is associated with high cholesterol, thus decreasing the risk of stroke or heart attack.

Facts About Bioidentical Hormones
- Bioidentical hormones are the safest and most effective way to treat menopause and andropause symptoms.
- Because bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to your body’s own natural hormones, they fit the hormone receptors in your body like a key fitting into a lock. When administered correctly, they will work exactly as nature intended, with no detrimental consequences.
- Synthetic hormones are not identical to natural hormones and will not be absorbed properly by hormone receptors.
- Synthetic hormones can cause increased risk of cancer and other side effects. For example, the synthetic hormone progestin has been linked to breast cancer in women.
