Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
We offer men and women an alternative approach to managing the aging process through BHRT. Bioidentical hormones are designed to precisely match the molecular structures of the natural hormones in your body. Hormone levels naturally decline with age. By restoring deficiencies and optimizing levels, you can live life to the fullest.
What Does BHRT Help With?
BHRT may also help to prevent diseases including:
Cardiovascular Disease (heart attacks and strokes)
Type II Diabetes & Other Insulin Resistance Syndromes
Chronic Pain Syndrome
Kephart Integrative Medicine is accepting patients who desire BHRT and genetic testing via telemedicine. The professional service includes a virtual consultation, daily email support, access to simple hormones education website, laboratory/genetic testing interpretation, and a personalized treatment plan including medication/supplement recommendations.
BHRT treatments can alleviate many of the following symptoms including:
Decreased energy and increased fatigue
Increased irritability, loss of motivation, and depression
Low libido, erectile dysfunction, and inability to achieve sexual gratification
Vaginal dryness and pain with intercourse
Difficulty losing weight or unanticipated weight gain
Diminished mental focus, “foggy thinking” and memory loss
Hot flashes and night sweats
