Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy BHRT
Rebalancing Your Body Chemistry
Age-related hormone decline is something that virtually all of us will encounter as we approach middle age. By replacing the hormones you have lost, you can enjoy a higher quality of life, with the robust, balanced body chemistry of someone much younger. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has increasingly become the answer for those searching for renewed vibrancy in their advancing years. At Concierge IV Nutrition, we administer this treatment in a clean, welcoming environment supervised by respected, licensed doctors.
What Is BHRT?
Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy, BHRT utilizes plant estrogen-based hormones that are chemically identical to the ones that our bodies produce naturally. Because they are molecularly identical to your natural hormones, they connect with the hormone receptors in your body like a finely tuned watch. They were developed in response to studies showing that synthetic hormones can, in certain instances, act as a cancer-causing agent. Bioidentical hormones are thought by many in the medical field to be a safer, effective way to treat the symptoms of menopause and its male version, andropause. When administered properly, they work in perfect concert with nature.
Why You May Need BHRT
If you are a woman entering into menopause, your body may no longer be making female hormones at an efficient rate. Without an effective natural replacement, you could encounter a number of unpleasant symptoms, from hot flashes and vaginal discomfort to sleeplessness, lethargy and general malaise. Significant loss of estrogen could also lead to brittle bones that fracture easily. While menopause usually occurs in the middle ages of life, some women may stop having periods or lose normal ovary function before 40. Anyone feeling typical menopausal symptoms should have a physical checkup and, if warranted, consider Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy as a solution. The key is to make sure it is administered in a responsible manner, by experienced professionals such as those at Concierge IV Nutrition.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy may benefit you in a number of possible ways, including:
- Improved sleep
- Reduced fatigue

- Improved thinking and memory
- Softer, more supple skin
- Stronger bones

Possible Side Effects
As with any injection, care should be taken to receive the treatment at a respected facility, run by professional medical personnel.

But our highly qualified staff supervises each treatment and can monitor your progress, to help ensure that few, if any, symptoms will occur.
