What is BHRT therapy?

Hormones are the chemical messengers that travel through our blood stream, enter cells by unlocking a door called a receptor, and flip the switches that govern growth, development, and mental and physical functioning. The exact chemical structure of the body’s hormones is incredibly important, because in order for hormone therapy to fully replicate the normal functioning present in the human body it must match the original structure of that hormone exactly.

Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones made by the human body. Structural differences exist between bio-identical hormones and those available commercially, which are typically synthetic like esterified estrogens and medroxyprogesterone or animal derived like conjugated equine estrogens. In order to be patented, synthetic hormones have side chains added to a natural substance. Synthetic hormones are not found in humans, and are not identical in structure or function to the bio-identical hormones they are intended to replace. This is why we use high quality compounding pharmacies to formulate the hormones we recommend.

What can BHRT do for you?

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is one option for support throughout life. These are hormones with the same chemical makeup as hormones already found in the body. Replacement therapy with bio-identical hormones may ease hormone disruption and keep the body healthy.

Men and women both experience symptoms from low hormone levels, though in women the symptoms may seem more prevalent post-menopause. With disrupted hormone levels, many women report weight gain, headaches, fatigue, or even depression. It is not uncommon to experience mood swings when hormones are unbalanced. Unfortunately, many women attribute these symptoms solely to pre or postmenopausal changes and ignore these warning signs until it is too late.

Men may face low testosterone levels during andropause, possibly resulting in Metabolic Syndrome which leads to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and abdominal obesity. There have even been studies by the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in regards to the role of low testosterone in memory loss.Fortunately, both men and women can benefit from bio-identical hormone replacement therapy recommended by Immunity.
