A natural alternative to synthetic hormones, bioidentical hormones work gently with your body to help restore balance to estrogen and testosterone levels.
As we age, our natural ability to make estrogen and testosterone decreases. While the effects of this decline will vary in type and extent, chances are, everyone—women and men—will experience some less-than-desirable symptoms.
As if getting older wasn’t hard enough.
Dr. Burns believes that you can achieve a life of vigor, passion, and clarity at any age. By conducting a simple, in-office blood or saliva test, she can help diagnose a hormone imbalance and work with you to restore your hormone levels to their desired natural state.
Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) offers a natural alternative to synthetic hormones, which can be hard on your body and the environment. Made from either soy or wild yams, bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as naturally occurring hormones and are easily metabolized and excreted from the body. Conversely, synthetic hormones are a mix of foreign chemicals that are difficult to metabolize and thus create extra work for your body.
Benefits of BHRT include better sleep, more energy, an increased libido and ability to manage stress, and many more.
