The Vital Difference: BHRT vs. Synthetic HRT

When it comes to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), it’s crucial to understand the distinction between Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) and synthetic HRT. At Hew Health, we’re committed to providing the most effective and safe options for our clients, which is why we exclusively offer BHRT. In this blog, we’ll delve into the compelling reasons behind our choice and shed light on the potential risks associated with synthetic HRT.

The Power of BHRT: Customized and Natural

Bioidentical Hormones, as the name suggests, are structurally identical to the hormones produced naturally by the human body. This similarity allows for a seamless integration of BHRT, resulting in fewer side effects and a more effective treatment. It also allows us to use smaller doses to accomplish better results, resulting in a healthier, longer lasting you!

Health Benefits of BHRT:

  1. Reduced Risk of Side Effects: Because BHRT is biologically identical to the body’s own hormones, there’s a drastic decrease to adverse reactions, making it a safer option for many individuals.
  2. Customized Treatment Plans: BHRT allows for a tailored approach, with hormone levels adjusted to meet the specific needs of each individual. This level of precision can lead to more effective results.
  3. Balanced Hormonal Health: BHRT helps restore hormonal balance, alleviating symptoms associated with hormone imbalances such as mood swings, low energy, disrupted sleep patterns, lack of drive and motivation, decreased libido and so much more.

The Pitfalls of Synthetic HRT

Synthetic Hormones, on the other hand, are not identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body. They are often derived from sources like animals or plants and are structurally different from human hormones.

Risks Associated with Synthetic HRT:

  1. Increased Risk of Side Effects: Synthetic hormones can lead to a higher risk of side effects, including stroke/heart attack, breast tenderness, fluid retention, and mood swings.
  2. Ineffectiveness for Some Individuals: Due to their structural differences, synthetic hormones does not provide the same level of effectiveness and symptom relief as BHRT.
  3. Potential Health Risks: Studies have suggested that long-term use of synthetic hormones are associated with increased risks of certain health issues, including cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer.
