What is bio-identical hormone replacement?
Bio identical hormone replacement ( BHRT ) is the process of replacing and balancing the hormones that are naturally present in your bodies with exact copies of these hormones. Hormones are chemicals that our bodies produce naturally and are used to communicate through our blood stream to other parts of our body. Many vitally important types of information is passed in this way from information that regulate a man or woman’s reproductive system information that leads to proper tissue and muscle growth, control of bone growth , regulation of sex drive and important information about metabolism.
Levels of these hormones are optimal when we are in our teens and early twenties. Unfortunately these hormones start to steadily decline after this point. Deficient levels of certain hormones have been associated with significant disease such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, dementia, sleep apnea, obesity, osteoporosis and many others.
