Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

BHRT is the art and science of restoring balance to decrease the unpleasant symptoms and treat diseases caused by hormone imbalances.

BHRT has actually been around for more than two decades. However, endorsements from celebrities like Suzanne Somers and Oprah Winfrey have greatly increased public awareness of bio-identical hormones and BHRT.

Before the availability of bio-identical hormones, women with menopause symptoms were given synthetic or animal-source hormones like progestin (Provera) and conjugated estrogens (Premarin). These non-human hormones have a different chemical structure than human hormones, which is why some scientists believe these hormone therapies led to an increased risk of heart disease and cancer in numerous studies.


Saliva Test

Saliva hormone testing is excellent at uncovering hormone imbalance. Saliva measures hormone that has actually made it into tissue, because hormones pass through the saliva gland tissue before entering saliva.

Talk to our pharmacist or a BHRT doctor about getting a saliva hormone test done.

You can pick up your Saliva test kit from our pharmacy.
