Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) to Regain Hormone Balance
Do you want to banish insomnia, lack of libido, mood swings, hot flashes, and other signs that age is creeping up? BHRT at Gentera Center for Regenerative Medicine may be the right treatment for you.
BHRT stands for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and is one way to give back what nature takes away as the years pass.
As we age, both men’s and women’s sex hormones decline. For women, that means estrogen levels may actually dwindle in their 30s, eventually culminating in menopause. For men, the decline in testosterone is more gradual, yet may be just as consequential. BHRT can help both sexes.
Hormones are actually peptide messengers, telling cells what to do, and when to do it. In fact, hormones are more than sex-linked substances, but regulate many functions, such as hunger, sleepiness, and our natural internal clocks. Yet nothing makes as big a difference in how one looks and feels as sex hormones. BHRT focuses solely on these critical peptide substances.
How is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy different from earlier hormone therapies?
BHRT is different from previous generations of hormone therapy, often derived from animal sources. BHRT, in contrast, is a product of plants, which is then purified in a certified chemical lab. In this process, the hormones are designed to be the same — or bioidentical — to those produced by human bodies. Read more in Healthline.
