What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

People who suffer from hormone imbalances can benefit from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) at any age. At the biostation, our hormone therapy is bioidentical – meaning that the hormones used are the exact same match to your body’s hormones and work successfully with the brain’s hormone receptors. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is preferred as it usually means safer, more efficient and effective results for the patient.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

A solution for weight management, women’s wellness, men’s wellness, adrenal fatigue, and more

Hormone imbalance is experienced by most women and men starting as early as 35 years-old. With age comes multiple factors including environmental and dietary toxins which contribute to hormone deficiency. Certain hormone treatments are called “bioidentical” or sometimes “natural” because the types of hormones used are chemically identical to those produced by the human body, according to molecular research. BHRT treatments include creams, lotions, injections, gels or tablets. Most women experience significant improvements within 48-72 hours of the first treatment and 2-4 weeks for men.

BHRT can improve and eliminate symptoms and conditions such as:

  • Weight gain
  • Limited energy
  • Hair loss
  • Low sex drive
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Sleeplessness
  • Poor concentration
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue
  • Night Sweats/Hot Flashes
