Traditional HRT uses synthetic hormones that are different than our natural hormones. Synthetic hormones often work well to alleviate many hormonal symptoms such as menopause, lots of reseach has shown that the risks outweigh thebenefits. Because of this they are no longer recommended for long term use. BHRT is a safer and more effective alternative when properly prescribed in physiologic doses, and monitored properly.
BHRT uses hormones made from natural sources (such as soy or wild yams) to create hormones which are identical to our own human hormones. Bioidentical hormones bind to our receptors, and are broken down in the same way as our own hormones, resulting in less harmful byproducts than synthetic HRT. Because of this, there are less side effects when compared to synthetic HRT. Bioidentical hormones can be individually compounded to be an exact match to restore physiological levels to the body.
