What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a safe and natural treatment that is effective in treating hormone imbalances in men and women as they age. The hormones used for treatment mirror the bio identity of hormones in the human body. When you use bioidentical hormones, the cells of your body recognize them as familiar and know how to put them to best use.
Bioidentical hormones are safe because, like your own hormones, they fit perfectly into the hormone receptor “locks” of the cells in the body where they do their work. The hormones are produced from plants (specifically a plant molecule called “diosgenin”, that is found in wild yams). This specific molecule does not trigger any of the negative side effects associated with synthetic hormones.
About Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Since 2004, Dr. McManus and her highly trained staff have prescribed bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to thousands of men and women suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalance. For women these symptoms present as hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, brain fog, moodiness, worsened PMS, bloating, headaches, depression, fatigue, low libido and decreased sexual pleasure. For Men a loss of libido is the most commonly reported symptom, along with trouble thinking clearly (often called “brain fog”), irritability and mood swings, fatigue, and anxiousness.
Although BHRT has been available for many years, not everyone is aware of how safe and effective this type of treatment is!
