Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

What is Bio-Identical Hormone 
Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is the use of hormones, that are similar in structure to those produced by our own bodies, to restore hormone imbalances and alleviate symptoms. Some of these symptoms include menopausal and peri-menopausal symptoms such as menstrual problems, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, vaginal dryness, low sex drive, fatigue, brain fog, and so on.

Bio-identical hormones are plant-based, non-synthetic hormones that are similar in molecular structure to our body’s own hormones. This makes them recognizable by the body, so that they bind to our receptors and are broken down in the same manner as our own hormones.

They are derived from concentrating and purifying wild yam extract. The base chemical structure of wild yam, diosgenin, is similar to human progesterone. Progesterone is known as the mother hormone, from which the other hormones such as cortisol, DHEA, testosterone and estrogen are derived. By making a few simple modifications to the progesterone molecule, the other hormones are then composed.
Researchers have concluded that bio-identical hormones are associated with a lower risk than conventional
(synthetic) HRT, including the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease. Also, bio-identical hormones have been reported to be more efficacious than conventional hormone replacement therapy (Holtorf, 2009).

To sum it all up, bio-identical hormones are safe and effective when prescribed properly.
Who benefits from Bio-identical hormone replacement  therapy?

Hormonal Testing

Hormones can be tested via blood, saliva or urine and they are always evaluated in light of your particular symptoms and challenges, your medical history and results of other investigations. In females, hormone levels will vary widely throughout the month so if you are cycling they will need to be addressed on specific days of your cycle.

At Flourish, we use a comprehensive dried urine test to thoroughly assess your hormone levels. This advanced test looks at the various forms of estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and cortisol, along with their metabolites to display how effectively they are utilized and broken down in the body, into either safe or potentially harmful metabolites.

This is the safest and most informative test for looking at hormonal imbalance, and helps us look at the bigger picture rather than a single point in time.
