About Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT):
There is a lot of misinformation associated with the term “Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy”, or BHRT. Both men and women are confused whether bioidentical hormones are helpful or harmful to the body. Bioidentical simply means the same or identical biology. Bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones made by your own body. Synthetic hormones have a similar molecular structure to the body, but are not identical. These chemical differences cause the synthetic hormone to act differently and produce different, often detrimental, effects from the original or bioidentical hormone. Are you confused about the risks and benefits associated with BHRT? At Rocky Mountain Hormone Wellness, Nurse Practitioner Teresa Heisser takes the time to discuss the current medical evidence supporting the use of BHRT, and explains the factors determining whether BHRT would be an appropriate treatment for your symptoms.
