What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone imbalances affect all us all and can lead to numerous symptoms that reduce quality of life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) uses hormones that are identical in molecular structure and function to the hormones produced in the human body. They are typically compounded from organic sources such as soy or yams. Bioidentical hormones can help men and women to supplement deficient hormones and reduce many of the signs and symptoms that can come with aging.
Who needs Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Most people over the age of 40 (and in many cases over 30) begin to experience hormone imbalance. In today’s world, we are exposed to environmental and dietary toxins, which contribute to the natural decline of hormones as we age. As we get older or experience more stress, the symptoms of hormone imbalance become more problematic. Hormone testing with proper clinical workup and evaluation allow Dr. Waddell to develop customized treatments that fit each person. Treatments may include:
- Estrogen E2/E3
