Helping Women achieve better health with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) 

In many cases preparations that are available through multi-national drug companies are unsuitable due to the high oestrogen content of the medication and the fact that Doctors can not readily tailor make their prescription to satisfy the requirements of their Patients.

What are Natural Hormones?
Hormones exist naturally and are the chemical messengers of the body, produced in various glands such as the ovaries, thyroid, pancreas and adrenals. There are many types of hormones, with each having their own specific effect and all coming together to control every function in our body. A well-balanced hormonal environment is necessary for optimal health. This balance can fail as we grow older or our body goes through significant change. This change is most common in women with the onset of menopause. Significantly, our reproductive hormones are estrogen (estrone, estradiol, estriol), progesterone and testosterone.

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
BHRT has existed for over 20 years. The major benefit of BHRT is that treatment doses are individualised and the mixture of products may not be commercially available. Bioidentical hormones, sometimes referred to as natural hormones, are used to treat menopause symptoms, peri-menopause, and post-menopause. Bioidentical hormones are molecularly identical to the hormones that are produced in the body.

Bioidentical hormones are chemicals that are derived from sources of yam or soybean. Steroids and hormones are taken from animals and plants then altered to be identical in molecular structure.

The steroids and hormones are then formed as a cream, oral dose, suppository or injections so the body can absorb them quickly. 

Why BHRT?
Bio-identical hormones are much different from synthetic hormone replacement drugs in that bio-identical hormones are metabolised, stored, and converted into other hormones naturally as the body cannot differentiate between BHRT and those produced in the body..

There are much less side effects to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy because the hormones are natural and our bodies metabolize bioidentical hormones the way it's designed to. Synthetic hormones can often be quite strong and produce unacceptable side effects.

The compounded bioidentical hormones can be made to match each woman’s individual needs. This is something that’s just impossible with commercially prepared products.
