What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for Men & Women, also known as BHRT is a term used to describe the treatment of hormone deficiencies in women caused by menopause. Bioidentical treatments use only molecules that are identical to the endogenous hormones found in the human body.
Naturopathic Bioidentical hormonal support is different from traditional hormone replacement therapy which includes animal-derived and invented molecules that are similar to, but not identical to human hormones. Naturopathic Bioidentical hormonal support is also used more generally to describe the practice of using botanical medicines and homeopathics to support the hormones.

- Improved look and feel of hair and skin
