About the Program

BHRT is often used to address hormonal imbalances that occur during aging, menopause, andropause, or other conditions.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a form of hormone replacement therapy that uses hormones that are structurally identical to the hormones naturally produced by male and female bodies.

BHRT is often used to address hormonal imbalances that occur during aging, menopause, andropause or other conditions. The hormones commonly involved in BHRT include estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. These hormones play crucial roles in various physiological functions, and imbalances can lead to symptoms such as hot flashes and mood swings in women and fatigue and loss of libido among men.

Bailey Health offers personalized and specifically tailored care plans to treat hormone imbalances safely and naturally for women and men

A Natural Solution for Hormonal Imbalances

Relief of Symptoms

BHRT is frequently used to alleviate symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances that often accompany aging. For example, in women going through menopause, BHRT may be prescribed to reduce hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. In men, BHRT may help alleviate symptoms of low testosterone like fatigue, reduced libido, and weight gain (especially in the belly area).

Improve Quality of Life

This program also highlights the importance of the mind-body connection in overall well-being. It involves integrating mindfulness and relaxation techniques into your daily routine, and addressing the psychological aspects of physical health.

Bone and Cardiovascular Health

Estrogen plays a crucial role in maintaining bone density, and BHRT with estrogen may be recommended to reduce the risk of osteoporosis and fractures, particularly in postmenopausal women.

Hormones such as estrogen and testosterone can have an impact on cardiovascular health. BHRT may be used with the goal of improving lipid profiles, reducing the risk of heart disease, and maintaining cardiovascular health.

Program/Membership Benefits

Relief from Menopausal Symptoms

In women experiencing menopause, BHRT may help alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness by regulating the neuroendocrine response to declining estrogen levels.

Boosted Energy Level and Sexual Function

BHRT, particularly with testosterone, may lead to hormonal equilibrium, allowing for an increase in energy and strength, and improve libido and sexual function in both men and women.

Better Bone and Heart Health

BHRT with estrogen or testosterone has been shown to increase bone mineral density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis fractures in older men and menopausal women.

BHRT with estrogen may also lower the chances of heart disease in women after menopause. 

Enhanced Mood and Well-Being

BHRT may help in reducing the symptoms of depression and anxiety, promoting sleep, and enhancing the general mood and sense of well-being in men and menopausal women. This could be attributed to the hormone’s influence on neurotransmitter levels and regulation of the body’s internal clock.
