What Is BioIdentical Hormone Replacement?
Also known as natural hormone therapy or bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement is the therapeutic use of hormones that are molecularly identical to your own endogenous hormones. Bioidentical hormone therapy is used to treat hormone level imbalances, which is a natural part of the aging process. They can be used to help mitigate symptoms of aging, as well as restore balance that have been lost before menopause or andropause in men.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is custom made for each individual patient, as everyone has unique needs. Derived from plant materials, the hormones can address symptoms of imbalances of adrenal hormones, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, and / or testosterone.
What Symptoms Does BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Help Treat?
While most people think of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy as solely a treatment for women, men find that it helps them manage the symptoms of aging as well.
In women, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can improve symptoms of menopause including:
- Abnormal hair growth / hair loss
- Bladder and / or vaginal infections
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings

For men, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for low testosterone (low T) can help improve:

- Low blood count
- Low semen volume
- Hair loss
- Muscle mass loss
- Percentage of body fat
- Smaller testicular size
Additionally, hormone replacement improves changes in cognitive function including memory loss, fatigue, and low sex drive in both men and women. It may also help reduce your risk of osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other health conditions.
