Hormone Replacement Doctor Gig Harbor, Washington

Hormone Replacement Doctor

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a form of hormone therapy where the doctor provides hormones, either to supplement lacking hormones, or to substitute new hormones for those that naturally occur in the body.

BHRT or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, is similar to HRT, the difference is that the hormones that are supplemented or substituted by a BHRT doctor, are identical at a molecular level to those naturally occurring in the body.

The forms of Hormone Replacement that our doctors at Nouveau Health provide include:

Bio-identical hormones are derivatives of plants  which are  structurally indistinguishable from human hormones. Typically, preparations of BHT may include progesterone, estradiol, estriol, DHEA and or testosterone. They are derived from a natural source;  yam, and are bioidentical to human hormones. Prescribed and managed correctly, BHRT has many benefits and few if any risks.

Menopause is a natural consequence of aging. Simply put, it is the cessation of a woman’s menstrual cycle known as meno (period) pause (stop). The ovaries produce three main hormones. The loss of these hormones produce variable symptoms in each individual patient as the hormone levels decrease. This process usually begins years before the patients last period and produces symptoms of low libido, low energy, weight gain, moodiness, insomnia, vaginal dryness, and hot flashes
