Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones our body produces. Hormone replacement therapy is not a one size fits all and should be evaluated for each individual based upon symptoms and testing to provide a plan that is individualized to alleviate symptoms.
Customized dosing is the optimal way to replace hormones, because each person’s response is as unique as they are. There are many factors to consider such as stress levels, environment, genetics, health conditions/risk factors, nutrition and diet.
At Renew Integrative Health, we strictly use bioidentical hormones; plant based hormones that are compounded specifically to meet each individual need.
Bioidentical hormones have been tolerated more often with less side effects and are shown to be safer with use; although controversial. We ensure proper dosing with strict protocols for evaluating the hormone metabolization or clearing through testing every 4-6 months.
