BHRT(Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy)
The Endocrine system is undergoing aging along with other organs in your body.
The endocrine system is made of glands like: adrenals, ovaries,testes,thyroid,parathyroid,pituitary. Each of these secretes a hormone-chemical messenger that influences the function of organs in the body. The health of the endocrine system is intimately related to your”biological age”.
“Bioidentical hormone preparations are medications that contain hormones that are an exact chemical match to those made naturally by humans,” says Manson, who is chief of preventive medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston and the Elizabeth F. Brigham Professor of Women’s Health at Harvard Medical School. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy differs from traditional hormone replacement therapy wherein synthetic hormones are produced from animals.
