What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
BHRT has been around for more than 20 years. Bioidentical hormones, sometimes referred to as natural hormones, are used to treat symptoms of menopause in women and testosterone deficiency in men. Bioidentical hormones are those that are molecularly identical to the hormones that are produced in the body. These hormones are derived from sources of yam or soybean.
These hormones are then formulated as a cream, oral tablet or capsule, suppository or injections so the body can absorb them properly.
Bio-identical hormones are much different from synthetic hormone replacement drugs in that bio-identical hormones are metabolized, stored and converted into other hormones naturally.
There are fewer side effects to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy because the hormones are natural and our bodies metabolize bioidentical hormones the way in which they are designed. On the other hand, synthetic hormones can often be quite strong and our body can metabolize them into substances which can produce unbearable side effects.
Another major benefit of BHRT is that treatment doses are individualized and the mixture of hormones can be made to match each person’s individual needs. This is impossible with commercially produced products. More...

This internist, who can be a primary care physician, emphasizes disease prevention and wellness, but can treat problems of the eyes, ears, skin, heart, blood, kidneys, joints, and diseases of the digestive, respiratory and nervous systems as well as mental health issues while concentrating on the wellness of the patient as a whole.
