Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a medical treatment that involves the use of hormones to replace those that the body no longer produces at adequate levels. BHRT is most commonly used to treat symptoms of menopause, a natural process that occurs in women when their ovaries stop producing hormones such as estrogen and progesterone.
BHRT is available in various forms, including pellets, pills, creams, gels, and injections. The hormones used in HRT may include estrogen, progesterone, or a combination of both, depending on the individual’s health condition and treatment goals.
Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment that may have several potential benefits, depending on the individual’s health condition and treatment goals. Some of the potential benefits of BHRT include:
Relief of menopause symptoms: BHRT may help to relieve symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.
Improved bone density: BHRT may help to prevent bone loss and reduce the risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures.
Reduced risk of heart disease: BHRT may help to reduce the risk of heart disease in some women by improving cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
Improved sexual function: BHRT may help to improve sexual function and reduce vaginal dryness, making sexual activity more comfortable.
Improved cognition: BHRT may help to improve cognitive function and reduce the risk of dementia in some women.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is different from Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) given by most physicians for treating post menopausal women. BHRT are made exactly and work identically to your own natural hormones. HRT are made synthetically and are not identical to what your body produces. BHRT has significantly less side effects than HRT hormones.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) works in a similar way to traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT), by replacing hormones that are either missing or in short supply in the body. The difference between BHRT and traditional HRT is the type of hormones that are used.
In BHRT, hormones are made to have the same molecular structure as the hormones naturally produced by the body. These hormones are called “bioidentical” because they are identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body. By contrast, traditional HRT often uses synthetic hormones that are similar, but not identical, to the hormones naturally produced by the body.
BHRT is usually used to relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalances, such as those that occur during menopause or as a result of other medical conditions. It can be taken orally, applied to the skin, or delivered through other methods, such as injections or pellets.
It’s important to note that while BHRT is marketed as being a safer and more natural alternative to traditional HRT, there is limited scientific evidence to support these claims. The decision to take BHRT should be made only after a thorough discussion with a healthcare provider. The provider will consider a person’s medical history, current health status, and other factors when deciding if BHRT is right for them.

Bioidentical Hormone replacement is safe. But like with all medical procedures, there can be risks. BHRT is a complex process, that’s why you shouldn’t tamper with your chemical balance without the help of a knowledgeable, trained medical professional. Dr. Seit has pioneered and perfected the science of hormone replacement to safely optimize your hormones, bringing your body into balance.
Some patients may experience the following symptoms when they start BHRT:
The length of time it takes for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to show results can vary depending on several factors, including the individual’s hormonal imbalances, the type of hormones being used, and the method of delivery.
In some cases, people may notice improvement in symptoms within a few days or weeks of starting BHRT. In other cases, it may take several months or longer to see the full benefits of BHRT.
It’s important to be patient and give the treatment time to work. If you are not seeing the desired results after a few months, it’s a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider. They may be able to adjust your treatment plan to better meet your needs.
