BHR hormone therapy utilizes bioidentical hormones to gain a number of different effects. BHR therapy can help clients with a variety of issues from menopause to low energy. Hormones are responsible for a lot of our body’s functions. Hormones naturally occur in our bodies and control our moods, our metabolisms, energy levels, sex drives, and so much more. Hormonal imbalance refers to when our hormones cause negative physical or mental effects. Through BHR hormone therapy, individuals experiencing negative hormonal effects can alter the presence of specific hormones in their body to decrease their negative symptoms.
What Are Bioidentical Hormones?
As the name suggests, a bioidentical hormone is identical to the hormones our body naturally produces. Hormone production and reception in the body is always in a state of flux. This is why men and women can experience mood swings, low energy, low sex drive, weight gain, etc. As we age our bodies naturally decrease hormone production which leads to imbalance. In men, low testosterone can decrease sex drive, increase weight gain, and affect muscle gain for example. In women, hormones have a wide effect on how their bodies handle their menstrual cycles, menopause, as well as mood swings, and libido. Supplementing decreased testosterone, estrogen, or other hormones can help men and women decrease the physical and mental effects of low hormone production or hormone imbalance.
What Does BHR Treat?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy provides many different benefits for both men and women. For women, BHR can help handle issues with PMS or menopausal symptoms as well as help increase libido. Additionally, BHR can be used to treat severe acne, hair growth, weight gain, depression, headaches, and mood swings.
Is It Safe?
Bioidentical hormones are identical to the naturally occurring hormones in our bodies. Traditional hormone replacement therapy (or HRT) replaces hormones with synthetic hormones that are different from the ones our bodies naturally produce. BHR is considered safer and has fewer side effects because the hormones being added are truly identical to the hormones our body already produces. That being said, side effects can still occur. As mentioned above, hormone imbalance leads to various physical and mental effects. When done properly, BHR aims to re-balance an unbalanced hormone level in the body. This is why it is important to work with a professional with experience in FDA-approved therapies. BHR isn’t going to be right for everyone, and depending on what effect you are looking for there may be a better procedure for you. For instance, if your goal is simply to counteract an ineffective metabolism, MIC vitamins could help. Or if you were looking to improve libido, PRP treatments like the O-shot could help.
