Natural Hormone Therapy (Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy)
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is an alternative to traditional hormone therapy. It is used to treat the symptoms of menopause and andropause (male menopause). The goal of BHRT is to restore hormone balance, alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.
The advantage of compounded BHRT is that it can be adapted specifically to fit each individual's body and hormone levels. Bio-identical hormones have have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body, so the body recognizes them allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces.

BHRT is often prescribed to ease the symptoms of many conditions that affect millions of women including:
- pre-menstrual syndrome (pms)

Testosterone Supplementation for Men
Hormone replacement therapy isn't just for women. Many men are diagnosed with "andropause" or "male menopause" which is a condition relating to decreasing levels of testosterone and increasing levels of estrogen. The symptoms often include:

- depression and anxiety
Your natural balance may be restored through supplementation of the hormone testosterone, which has been shown to relieve many of these symptoms.
