BHRT - Estrogen and Progesterone Replacement Therapy

Consider this quote: “One can’t have a satisfactory life if one doesn’t have satisfactory hormones.”

We find that most of our female patients agree with the above quote. If your hormones are off, life seems off. There is scientific proof of this statement as well. Hormones control a lot of our body’s functions, meaning when hormones are off because of estrogen disruptors or even low testosterone, things like energy, motivation, general health, vitality, are missing as well.

In women, estrogen replacement primarily targets the uterus, vaginal tissues, breast, muscle, bone, skin and brain. Low estrogen levels can increase LDL levels (the harmful cholesterol) and decreases HDL (the good cholesterol). Progesterone replacement primarily balances estrogen but it also improves sleep, improves mood, increases metabolic rate, acts as a natural diuretic and enhances action of the thyroid hormones. It is very important that bioidentical hormones are used, synthetic estrogen and progesterone have beeens shown to be harmful. Bioidentical means that the hormones are identical on a molecular level with our own natural hormones. 

Replace what your body is losing. Easy and naturally.

Progesterone and Estrogen replacement therapies aim to get back what the body is no longer naturally producing. Studies show that estrogen replacement in particular protects women from heart attacks/disease, relieves menopause symptoms, preserves bone density and muscle mass, improves metabolic rate, decreases LDL, increases HDL, maintains skin collagen and decreases risk of developing diabetes. Progestrone replacement studies show that it helps balance estrogen, improves sleep, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, increases metabolic rate, is a natural diuretic, and a natural antidepresant. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT) have been around for years and on-going studies show that the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapies outweigh the risks. It offers women disease prevention, aging modification, and most of all, improved quality of life.

Consider this. What if you were given an opportunity to take a pill that would almost certainly rot your bones, dry up your vaginal tissues, make your breasts droop, suck the elasticity from your skin, double your chance for Alzheimer’s disease, and double or triple the likelihood of a heart attack. All this in a single pill. Would you take it?

This question is asked of female postmenopausal patients. It is said that the decision not to replace estrogen postmenopausally was like taking this pill. What type of pill could this possibly be? The answer…. the infamous and unavoidable all-natural “aging pill.” Aging does take a toll on our bodies; those of us over 40 have already noticed the changes including symptoms of low estrogen, progesterone and low testosterone.  And in this case the saying, “change is good” may not be so true!

Manage Your Age.

So now the question is, how do postmenopausal women avoid having to take this aging pill? The answer could be as simple as continuing to maintain a healthy level of estrogen and progesterone through bioidentical hormone replacement.
