BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY (BHRT) FOR WOMEN
You’re probably reading this because you may be experiencing symptoms that could be related to Menopause.
Strictly speaking, menopause occurs when your menstrual cycle ceases for one year, and it’s one of the few medical conditions that can persist for a year before being diagnosed and treated.
Of course, most of us think of menopause as the stage in a woman’s life when her menstrual periods stop (and other bodily changes occur), as a result of decreasing levels of various hormones. But while most hormones are decreasing, two hormones – cortisol and insulin – may increase during the menopausal years, leading to excess abdominal fat and the slow disappearance of your waistline, among other things.
The average woman is familiar with some menopause symptoms, including hot flashes, sleep disturbance, foggy brain and depression. However, these problems may be just the tip of the iceberg.
Once you encounter menopause, you’re stuck with it, BUT you needn’t be stuck with adverse effects to your health and appearance, as long as you restore certain all-important hormones.
Today, you have a choice about how you want to age. You can live a healthy life, filled with energy and passion, provided you maintain a balanced endocrine system.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Women
Women’s hormone levels can begin declining starting in their early twenties! Women often seek bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to combat the effects of hormonal changes. BHRT, or natural hormone therapy, is a healthy solution because it uses genuine bioidentical hormones instead of a synthetic hormone replacement. Patients are amazed by the countless ways this treatment enhances their lives.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
BHRT for women helps them reduce their experience of hot flashes and chronic headaches. It also increases energy, sex drive and overall physical health. In some cases, women pursue this treatment after noting increased irritability and decreased libido, both of which can put a strain on relationships. As if those benefits aren’t great enough, women report getting better sleep, experiencing prolonged focus and are slimming down. All told, BHRT patients report a dramatic improvement in quality of life.
How Hormone Therapy Works
While there are multiple ways to administer the BHRT process, the best hormone therapy uses hormone pellets. Hormone pellets are about the size of a grain of rice and get implanted under your skin to provide longer-lasting increases in hormone levels compared to other methods. This releases a steady dose of hormones and avoids the up and down fluctuations patients may notice with any other delivery system (pills, patches, shots, gels, creams and oils).
Hormone pellet therapy for women is more stable and also requires less daily involvement on behalf of the patient. Once the pellet is in, it lasts for three to six months. It is without a doubt the best available method.
Is Hormone Therapy Right for Me?
BHRT is ideal for ladies who are experiencing the negative effects of aging mentioned above and want to feel young again. If age is just a number, you don’t have to give in to nature’s schedule! The best part about natural hormone therapy is that it gives your body the hormones you need without the ugly side effects and risks of using a synthesized drug.
