Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Jacksonville FL
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
BHRT uses hormones to resolve symptoms related to a sex hormone imbalance or age-related decline in sex hormone production. “Bioidentical” hormone replacement therapy uses hormones that match the molecular structure to those produced by the human body to help you achieve hormonal balance. Bioidentical hormones are the preferred method of hormone replacement therapy. Their synthetic counterparts have different chemical structures and may increase the risk of developing breast cancer and cardiovascular disease. BHRT treatments may include topical or oral formulations or pellets.
