BHRT Q & A

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)?

BHRT is a treatment that enhances your hormone levels when you have a deficiency. 

Glands in your body produce hormones, powerful messengers that play an essential role in how your body functions. They affect your growth and development, metabolism, and your reproductive system. 

When you have an imbalance, you can suffer from a wide range of uncomfortable and even debilitating symptoms. 

Instead of traditional hormone replacement therapy that uses synthetic hormones, BHRT restores your hormone levels to their natural state, using structurally identical hormones from plants, proving to be a safer and more effective alternative.

Dr. Pacheco is an expert at utilizing BHRT to give women the support they need. 

Is BHRT right for me?

Aging is one of the main reasons your body experiences hormonal deficiencies, but you can struggle with hormone imbalances for other reasons as well.

You might be a candidate for BHRT if you have deficiencies in:

  • Thyroid
  • Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA)
  • Vitamin D
  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Testosterone
  • Melatonin

BHRT uses plant extracts that go through a refining process, producing hormones identical to your own, making it a very safe, natural source.

What symptoms can BHRT treat?

As your hormones fluctuate, you can experience symptoms, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Incontinence
  • Fatigue
  • Low concentration
  • Irritability
  • Moodiness
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Low sex drive
  • Painful during sex

Each person’s reaction to hormone imbalance is unique. Your symptoms might not be the same as someone else experiencing hormone loss. 

The good news is Dr. Pacheco can help remedy your symptoms with BHRT.

What are the benefits of BHRT?

When you receive customized BHRT, you can expect to notice significant benefits. It can improve your mental clarity, decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, and promote your ability to lose fat and gain muscle.

Many begin to notice thicker hair growth, healthier-looking skin, reduced bloating, and increased sex drive.

BHRT also gives you more energy and an overall increased sense of wellbeing.
