What is BHRT?
BHRT stands for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. Bio-identical refers to how chemically similar the supplemental hormone is to the human hormone in the body. This is in contrast to synthetic hormones which do not have this similarity. Other supplemental hormones such as the ones administered by conventional physicians are not bio-identical. Bio-identicals are derived from plants while conjugated hormones are derived from animals. Hormone replacement therapy is the purpose of the bio-identical hormones. People who lack hormones at certain consistent levels or who have too much of a certain hormone may benefit from BHRT.
