Hormone Optimization in Portland
What is Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As we get older, our natural hormone levels can start to decrease. Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is designed to replace what the body can no longer produce. Optimizing hormonal balance is absolutely necessary for good health as you age. Bio-Identical hormones are plant-based, natural substances that our bodies can metabolize in the way they were designed to do, thereby minimizing side effects.
