Revival Hormone Replacement

What is BHRT?

BHRT (bio-identical hormone replacement therapy) is a natural and safe way to replace the natural hormones our bodies produce. As we age, our hormone levels steadily decline due to the natural aging process. Bio-identical hormones are identical in molecular structure to the hormones we make in our bodies and are derived from plants (soy and yams).

In comparison, synthetic hormones (derived from horse urine) are not identical to the hormones produced by the body (sometimes only 30 % identical) rendering them less effective, more side effects and a higher potential for causing harm. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has been shown to improve several aging processes such as CVD (cardiovascular disease), osteoporosis, developing diabetes and improving cholesterol levels, among several other benefits.

Both men and women start to produce less of our natural hormones started at age 30, on average. Signs and symptoms that you may notice as these levels decline include:

Men:

  • Fatigue
  • “Brain fog”
  • Decreased libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Low motivation
  • Hair loss
  • Osteoporosis
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Insomnia
  • Increased recovery time
  • Decreased muscle mass

Women:

  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Inability to lose weight
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Vaginal dryness
  • “Brain fog”
  • Hair loss
  • Osteoporosis
  • Insomnia
  • Urinary symptoms
  • Irregular, heavy or painful periods

Although overall very safe, BHRT does have potential side effects that can often be mitigated by the healthcare provider providing BHRT. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is tailored to each patient uniquely and requires monitoring by a qualified healthcare professional.
