Conditions Best Treated with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)


Published February 15, 2024

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has been used to address a variety of hormonal imbalances and related symptoms. While BHRT is not a one-size-fits-all solution, it has effectively treated certain conditions. Here are several conditions that are commonly considered to be best treated with BHRT:

Menopause Symptoms: BHRT is often used to alleviate symptoms associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. By restoring hormone levels to their natural balance, BHRT may help reduce the severity of these symptoms and improve the overall quality of life for menopausal women.

Perimenopause: Perimenopause refers to the transitional period leading up to menopause when hormone levels begin to fluctuate. BHRT can be used during this time to help manage symptoms such as irregular periods, mood changes, and sleep disturbances.

Andropause Symptoms: Andropause, also known as male menopause, is a term used to describe age-related changes in male hormone levels. BHRT may be used to address symptoms of andropause, such as fatigue, decreased libido, and mood changes, by restoring testosterone levels to a more optimal range.

Hormonal Imbalances: BHRT can be beneficial for both women and men who experience hormonal imbalances due to conditions such as thyroid disorders, adrenal fatigue, or insulin resistance. By restoring balance to hormone levels, BHRT may help alleviate symptoms associated with these imbalances, such as fatigue, weight gain, and mood swings.

Osteoporosis Prevention: BHRT has been suggested as a potential preventive measure for osteoporosis, especially in postmenopausal women. Estrogen plays a crucial role in maintaining bone density, and BHRT may help reduce the risk of osteoporosis-related fractures by keeping estrogen levels optimal in the body.

Sexual Dysfunction: BHRT may be used to address sexual dysfunction in both men and women by restoring hormone levels that are important for sexual function. For example, BHRT may help improve libido and sexual satisfaction by balancing testosterone and estrogen levels.

Cognitive Function: Some studies suggest that BHRT may positively impact cognitive function, particularly in postmenopausal women. Estrogen has been shown to play a role in brain health, and BHRT may help maintain cognitive function as women age.

BHRT may benefit many conditions. As with any medical treatment, BHRT should be discussed with a qualified healthcare provider who can assess individual needs, risks, and potential benefits. Additionally, BHRT should be part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may include lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and other therapies tailored to the individual’s specific needs.

  • “Since I became a patient of Dr. Schultz and FINALLY found someone who could balance my hormones, I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN I WAS 20!!! I swear this is true!! Because of her diagnostic genius, the level of bioidentical hormones she has fine-tuned to my individual needs have changed my life and restored me to be the best “me” I can be! Dr. Schultz is not just a doctor, I call her my HEALER 🙂 She LISTENS to me, she educates me and encourages me to take good care of myself and to make good choices, and then she allows me to make my own decisions and choices, because she respects that I am an intelligent adult and the expert on my own 58-year-old body. She treats me as a peer and her PARTNER in maintaining my own wellness, and she respects and cares about me! Our appointments start and end with a hug, and I leave her office feeling uplifted, understood, inspired, strengthened and healed in body mind and spirit. She is very holistic,  understanding that we are not just a cluster of symptoms, but that in order to have healthy bodies we must also address our issues, belief systems, and thoughts. Dr. Schultz is a wise and wonderful teacher and I am blessed to have her on my path:) And her staff is awesome too!”
