Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Basically, hormone imbalance triggers a decline in optimal health and wellness. It can occur at any age, but becomes significant in patients facing perimenopause, menopause and andropause (also known as male menopause). Suffering through or ignoring the symptoms won’t make your life more tolerable. Only diagnosis and treatment can alleviate the symptoms.
Rather than old synthetic, non-natural treatment regimens that your mother may have been subjected to, Dr. Kern recommends bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, as the a natural approach to balance and therapy. Bioidentical hormones (also known as “bio identical hormones” or “bio-identical hormones”) are derived from natural sources such as yams and soy. They replicate the identical chemical structure as hormones produced naturally by our bodies.

Simply put, Dr. Kern believes natural is superior to synthetic. Naturally derived hormones allow your body to synthesize them properly and adequately. A large body of evidence indicates that BHRT is safe and more effective than synthetic hormone replacement. Again, only a highly trained physician can determine if bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is “right” for you.
