Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Some people may think that Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is only for pre-menopausal women or those currently going through menopause. However, this treatment is appropriate for both men and women.
As each gender faces hormone-related symptoms of aging, which may be physical, mental, and/or emotional in nature. Physical deterioration is not a requirement of growing older.
Fortunately, it is now possible to stop much of this undesirable aspect of aging as well as the symptoms and disease associated with aging. BHRT is an updated science that has been shown to not only prolong life, but to prolong the quality of one’s life.
