Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

  

Hormone levels decline as we age. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) replenishes the hormones that your body needs to function optimally. The molecule of the bioidentical hormone is identical in structure to the hormones naturally found in the body. Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, are similar to, but not exactly the same as the hormones produced in your body. Synthetic hormones act differently, produce different effects and have different side effects than the safer, more effective bioidentical hormones. We at Chadds Ford Wellness use bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic hormones. We assess your individual needs and help to bring your hormone levels into an optimal, more youthful range. The program is customized and personalized based on your symptoms, lab levels, and family history. In order to assure an adequate dose and response to treatment, your hormone levels are monitored and adjusted to maintain optimal levels. Common hormone levels that are checked include, but are not limited to:


· Thyroid

· Testosterone

· DHEA

· Estrogen

· Progesterone
