Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps women who have hormonal imbalances. Dr. Viinberg is pleased to offer this therapy to you using local compounding pharmacies.
What is BHRT?
BHRT uses natural plant based hormones that are identical in structure to our own human hormones. Our body fully recognizes these compounds and readily metabolizes them, making for effective natural treatment. Our goal is to help you maintain appropriate levels of hormones in your body at whatever stage of life you may be.
When should BHRT be considered?
As a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Viinberg recommends dietary and lifestyle changes, supplements and herbs to resolve hormonal imbalances. However, in cases where these therapies do not provide sufficient relief, BHRT is often dramatically helpful.
Symptoms in Women may include:
- PMS and painful periods
- Perimenopause and Irregular periods
- Difficult menopausal symptoms
- Adult acne
- Endometriosis, fibroids and ovarian cysts
- Weight gain
- Muscle loss
- Insomnia and fatigue
- Low libido
- Anxiety and Depression
- Cognitive Decline
How Do I Get Started?
Dr. Viinberg tailors a treatment to your individual needs. The hormone dosage necessary to help you maintain your health and feel great, is as individual as you are! We will start with a full intake appointment to completely understand your current state of health. You will be asked to do salivary hormone testing to establish current hormone levels. This is our starting point. After you have been receiving treatment for 3 months, we will retest and reassess.
