What is BHRT?
BHRT stands for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structures as the naturally occurring hormones produced in the body.
What are the benefits of BHRT?
BHRT can be helpful for symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and andropause (also known as “male menopause”). BHRT can also offer preventive benefits related to cardiovascular disease, bone loss, mood issues, and memory.
My doctor says my hormone levels are “normal,” so why don’t I feel good?
”Normal” levels on lab tests are the average ranges for someone of your general age. However, normal is not the same as “optimal.” At Ellithia Healthcare our goal is to help our patients feel optimal, not just average.
How is Ellithia Healthcare different from other BHRT clinics?
At Ellithia, all of your appointments will be with your prescriber—a Nurse Practitioner (NP). All of our NPs have advanced degrees (Master’s or PhD degrees) and have completed extensive training in the inclusion of hormones in health care and wellness. Your care will be guided by your goals and will include a holistic review of your previous health history and current concerns. Moreover, Ellithia’s practitioners are accessible anywhere in British Columbia and Alberta, as our clinic offers virtual health care.
Can men benefit from BHRT?
Absolutely! Men generally respond to BHRT quickly and get great results specific to energy, libido, sexual performance, mood, and exercise response. At Ellithia, our focus is to ensure that your long-term health and wellness, as well as your immediate symptoms, drive your care.
