BHRT Explained

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy / Restoration Therapy treats the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, and postmenopause caused by an imbalance of endogenous hormones commonly found in women as early as 30 to 40 years of age.

As women age, their bodies begin to produce fewer hormones. In many females over the age of 40, the resulting hormonal imbalance can wreak havoc on their physical and mental health, causing a host of symptoms such as weight gain, acne, irritability, fatigue, low sex drive, memory loss, insomnia, and difficulty concentrating.

Dr.Guy utilizes the most modern and effective diagnostic testing to ensure that all treatment programs are targeted and monitored for her clients.

WHAT ARE BIOIDENTICAL HORMONES?

Bioidentical hormones are biologically identical to the hormones that the body already produces. Whereas conventional hormone therapy uses synthetic or animal-based hormones, bioidentical hormones share the exact molecular structure and are biochemically the same as endogenous hormones produced by a woman’s ovaries during their reproductive years.

HOW DO I KNOW IF BHRT IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Any Ottawa women over the age of 40 who are experiencing symptoms related to perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause are excellent candidates for Dr. Guy’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

Symptoms of hormone imbalance aren’t all due to normal age related decline. If this were so, every single person would have symptoms, yet they don’t. There are other factors that must be considered. For this reason Dr.Guy practices within a functional medicine model.

While she does restore hormone levels using BHRT she also looks into improving function in the body overall.    

Hormones are produced in the ovaries and adrenal glands for women. As long as these glands are functioning well, the hormones stay in balance.

The functional medical model looks at lifestyle, diet and nutrition, stress levels, thyroid function, genetics and looks to ensure optimum functioning for hormone production.  Using modern diagnostic testing alonside natural treatment protocols, Dr.Guy, looks to  optimize how a persons’  body is operating and the end result is that they are feeling better and more like themselves again.
