Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Treat hormonal imbalances or depletion safely

Overview of BHRT

BHRT can help:

  • Weight loss and reduction of body fat
  • Reduce your levels of cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Improve your mood
  • Improve your sleep and your overall well-being
  • Increase your energy and exercise capacity
  • Boost your libido
  • Improve your strength, your endurance, and your muscle tone
  • Decrease incidence of heart disease
  • Treat symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)


Hormones decline in all people as they age. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that are biochemically identical to your body’s own natural hormones, to restore the balance. This is a very important distinction from regular Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), which uses synthetic hormones.

How does it work?
Hormone imbalance can be restored by implementing a hormone replacement program. The correct regimen is very helpful for women going through perimenopause or menopause and can dramatically improve symptoms such as hot flashes, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, mood swings and even cognitive challenges. It can also benefit men whose testosterone production begins to decline in their 40s leading to low libido levels, lost energy and depression.

Hormones control virtually all of the functions of the body, but levels start to decrease when we reach middle age. Women who are in the perimenopause or menopause stage of their lives may experience the effects of hormonal imbalances including mood changes, hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, fatigue, weight gain, trouble sleeping, and a loss of interest in sex.

Aging men also experience andropause or a loss of natural testosterone as they age and can use BHRT to regain a lost libido and a sense of focus, contentment, strength, and ambition. Those who are fortunate enough not to experience the volatile shifts of hormonal imbalances can still use BHRT to maintain optimal hormone levels and prevent the many chronic illnesses of older age.

Common questions you might have:

Why Bioidentical hormone replacement is better?

While it is an ‘identical’ hormone replacement, the hormones are still synthetic. Synthetic hormones are chemically different from our own natural hormones, and can have harmful side effects. It is important that hormone supplementation is done with a molecule that is identical to our own natural hormones.

Research shows that supplementation with natural hormones can prevent the chronic and debilitating illnesses of ageing, and enhance our quality of life.

What are the common side effects from using BHRT?

Using BHRT treatments can have side effects, especially when you are beginning treatment as your body is not used to the new level of hormones.

Some of these hormone therapy side effects can include acne, bloating, blurred vision, breast tenderness, cramps and vaginal bleeding, headaches, increase in facial hair, indigestion, and weight gain. Many side effects are mild and short-lived and are usually avoided by starting with smaller doses of hormones, gradually increasing amounts as needed.

Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Safe? Does BHRT cause cancer?

Unlike the synthetic forms of hormones usually prescribed by the medical community, there have been no studies to show that BHRT causes cancer. In fact, many studies show that achieving specific levels of our hormones through BHRT decreases the risk of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and osteoporosis (among others).
