Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
BHRT is all about restoring your body to the hormone levels that have in the past, been ideal. These days, average hormone levels are far below what they were just a few generations ago, believe it or not. Compared to your grandparents, your hormone levels are abysmally low. But that is where bioidentical hormone replacement therapy comes in. You aren’t just stuck with low hormone levels for the rest of your life, you CAN do something about it!
What Do Hormones Do?
Hormones control a number of important bodily functions for men and women alike – from our cardiovascular system and nervous system to our immune system – and some of the diseases to which a body may be susceptible. Hormones strengthen our bodies at the cellular level. Hormones will strengthen the body’s cells and allow them to operate more efficiently. A body running without the hormones it needs it like running a car with no oil, it’ll keep running but eventually it’ll break down so much that it just won’t work right anymore.
What Does BHRT Offer Me?
You will be providing your body all of the things it needs, to not only handle daily stresses, but to flourish while doing it. Aging ins’t fun, but you can make it better.

You will have taken care of the big concerns with “aging gracefully”, as long as you maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle, BHRT should take you to the next level of feeling like you should/want to.
Energy levels can be sustained at a higher level for longer, sex drive will improve, and memory can improve as “brain fog” clears up.

Understand, you won’t be running around like a 5 year old, but the improvement in energy levels WILL be noticeable.
