Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the use of hormones to help resolve symptoms related to hormonal imbalance or decline in women and men. Bio-identical means identical to our natural hormones.
Almost all men and women over the age of 40 begin to experience hormone imbalance. There is a natural decline in hormone production with age. Production declines by 50% by age 50. There are also lifestyle and environmental factors that may accelerate that decline.
As we age, we start to experience a multitude of symptoms that are a result of a decrease in our natural hormone production and levels. Men and women each have their own set of issues that can result from hormone deterioration and imbalance.
