What is BHRT?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is the term commonly used to describe the treatment of hormone deficiencies brought on by aging, by replacing them with hormone molecules that are identical to the hormones produced naturally within the human body.
How do Bioidentical Hormones Work?
Hormones are responsible for controlling the delicate biochemical balance in our bodies. They move our bodies through each phase of our lives, from infancy through puberty, reproduction, and old age. They prepare our bodies to fight, to flee, and to mate, and they are responsible for many of our daily mood swings and hunger pangs. Hormones are produced by our cells in very small quantities, and trace amounts can have significant effects.
Since aging is caused by a decline in our natural hormones, it can be easily corrected by bio-identical hormone replacement. Think of hormonal decline as a drought. If your grass and plants are withering during the summer months due to a heat wave and lack of rain, then you can accept this as natural and normal, or you can water your yard to ensure that your grass and plants live. So, when your hormones decline, as they inevitably will, you can replenish them with the same natural, bioidentical hormones, restoring your health, or you can suffer the drought of hormones with all the associated problems. It is your choice.
Dr. Meric & Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Can Help
Many people resign themselves to living with the serious symptoms caused by hormone imbalance, accepting them as an unchangeable and an untreatable part of the aging process. However, maintaining optimum levels of hormones promotes an improved quality of life and prevents many of the degenerative illnesses commonly associated with aging.
