BHRT: Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement 

hreplace.gifAs women approach their 40's, their hormone levels start to decrease.  They start having hot flashes, depression, mood swings, vaginal pain and dryness, insomnia, heart palpitations and low libido.

Bio-Identical hormones are found in nature versus synthetic or man made hormones and get their start from the wild Mexican yam, which is rich in the precursor molecules easily converted by a biochemist into other molecules that are IDENTICAL in every way to NATURAL ESTROGEN, PROGESTERONE, TESTOSTERONE AND OTHER HORMONES.   

The advantages of BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT include all of the benefits of HRT with few of the unwanted side effects and risks associated with synthetic hormones.  Advantages include the prevention of osteoporosis, restoration of bone strength, reduced hot flashes and vaginal dryness, protection against heart disease and stroke, improved cholesterol levels, reduced risk of depression and breast cancer, improved sleep, better moods,  prevention of senility and improved libido.

The goals of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy are:

  • alleviate the symptoms caused by the natural decrease in hormone production by the body
  • replace the hormones to th extent to provide the positive benefits of hormone therapy
  • bring the body back to hormone balance
  • imitate the body's natural processes as much as possible


We work closely with you and your doctor to find the special dosage of Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone to make you feel good again.  Every woman's body is different; one may need more Estrogen, someone else may need more Progesterone.  That is why we work with you and your doctor to find the right combination of medications just for you.  Our individualized approach with bioidentical hormones that are exactly what your body needs is ideal for women who want to avoid synthetic estrogens and progestins. Cheryl DuFresne offers individual consulting and seminars several times a year on Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT).  Call the office at 810.724.3301 for an appointment or more information.
