Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement for Menopause

Today we’re talking about Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). This becomes relevant for women at the menopause as the production of hormones coming out of the ovaries drops quite dramatically. This can lead to a wide variety of symptoms that are quite disconcerting, most notably, hot flashes and night sweats. However, there are some silent things going on in the background. As these hormones drop off, you’ll be at an increased risk for blood pressure and cardiovascular problems and you’ll be at increased risk for osteoporosis.These are a number of reasons why Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement could be a good idea at the menopause.

The women that seem to breeze through the menopause without too much symptoms at all, are women that have very good adrenal function, and the adrenals do form the backup hormone system when the ovaries fail. So these are all things that we take into consideration when we’re assessing the appropriateness of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement.
