What is BHRT?

BHRT replaces depleted hormones with chemically identical substances derived from plant sources, aiming to restore balance and relieve symptoms of hormonal disorders.

Hormones are chemical messengers that reach every organ in your body. They regulate many systems, including reproduction, growth, libido, mental health, and mood.  When they become unbalanced, you can experience disruptions in these vital functions. 

BHRT addresses these imbalances to restore harmony within your body and promote a healthier hormonal equilibrium.

How is BHRT different from traditional hormone therapy?

BHRT uses hormones derived from plant sources, closely matching your body’s natural hormones. Treatment is personalized, with varied formulations available to address your specific hormonal imbalance. Traditional hormone therapy uses synthetic or animal-derived hormones, which can increase your risk of unwanted side effects like nausea, bloating, or mood swings.

What conditions can BHRT treat?

BHRT can treat symptoms of hormonal conditions like:


Menopause is the end of your menstrual years. It occurs about 12 months after your last period. During this phase, hormones like estrogen and progesterone plummet, which can lead to physical, mental, and emotional changes.


Andropause, commonly called male menopause, is when a man’s testosterone levels decline. This sudden hormonal shift can affect libido, muscle mass, and mood.

Who might benefit from BHRT?

You may benefit from BHRT if you experience uncomfortable symptoms of menopause or andropause, including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Night sweats
  • Mood swings
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Increased abdominal fat
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Osteoporosis (brittle bones)
  • Erectile dysfunction (in men)
  • Low libido
  • Vaginal dryness (in women)
  • Fatigue

BHRT can help you feel like yourself again if you have a hormonal imbalance that affects your everyday life.

What does the BHRT process involve?

First, your practitioner cleans and sterilizes the treatment area. Next, they insert a BHRT pellet the size of a grain of rice beneath your skin. Finally, they apply a bandage and provide detailed aftercare instructions.

Once inserted, the pellet releases a steady stream of hormones into your bloodstream, restoring your hormonal balance. Your provider monitors your progress over the next 3-6 months, making necessary adjustments to ensure your plan meets your needs.
