If your doctor suggested hormone therapy, you may benefit from BHRT treatment. Reach out to The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy to discuss your options.
Hormone therapy has been used for years to help people who are suffering from hormonal imbalances. There are several types of hormone replacement therapy, but many patients opt for HRT that uses bio-identical hormones.
At The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy, we specialize in formulating custom medications for patients who need personalized medicines. We can tailor your BHRT to best meet your needs so you can balance your hormones and get back to your life. Read on to learn more about what BHRT is and who could benefit from it.
What Is BHRT?
BHRT stands for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. BHRT and traditional hormone replacement therapies (HRT) are most commonly used to treat hormonal imbalances in both men and women. Hormonal imbalances can have a dramatic impact on your life. Some symptoms you might experience, depending on which hormones have been affected, include:
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Hair loss
- Weight gain
- Vaginal dryness
- Erectile dysfunction
These are only a few symptoms you could experience because of of a hormonal imbalance. If you have been experiencing other symptoms, you may still have a hormonal imbalance that needs rebalancing. That’s where HRT and BHRT could make a difference in your quality of life.
By providing your body with synthetic hormones (HRT) or molecularly identical hormones to those that your body produces naturally (BHRT), you could achieve that same homeostatic balance.
Who Is a Good Candidate for BHRT Therapy?
There are many factors your physician will take into consideration when determining whether you are a good candidate for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Generally, patients suffering from at least one significant symptom are indicative of a hormonal imbalance.
Your physician must review your family medical history, your overall health and medical record, and any other symptoms you’ve been experiencing before making a determination.
BHRT is not without risks, including a potential increase in your risk of developing certain types of cancers. For this reason, BHRT is often used at a low dose for a short period of time to achieve the desired result- rebalanced hormone levels. If your doctor has prescribed BHRT after reviewing all relevant health factors, then they have determined the benefits you could see should far outweigh the risks.
If you have additional questions about the risks of BHRT, how it could work for you, or what to expect once you start hormone replacement therapy, you can talk to your doctor or your compounding pharmacist at The Healthy Choice.
