Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for Women
At Forward Healthy Lifestyles, our goal is to personalize the BHRT program specifically to each individual. Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body that regulate all physical and emotional functions such as sleep, metabolism, growth, stress and mood. When your hormones are balanced, they work in symphony, and you feel, look and perform at your best. Our goal is to improve your overall health and well-being and helping you feel younger.

The main hormones that govern the female body include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and thyroid hormones. Our bodies require appropriate levels of hormones to function properly. By completing a baseline comprehensive lab panel, our provider will be able to understand your current hormonal and metabolic health. This combined with your medical history will allow our team at Forward Healthy Lifestyles to create a treatment plan that will be effective, safe and work best for you to restoring your hormone to an optimal level.

Bioidentical hormone replacement vs non-bioidentical also known as synthetic hormones.

Bioidentical hormones are made to have the same molecular structure as the hormones we have in our own body. Bioidentical hormones cannot be patented because it is a bioidentical structure, so synthetic hormones were created and patented. Naturally sourced bioidentical hormones do not have the same health risk concern as the synthetic hormones.
