BHRT | Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Newton & Boston
What are bioidentical hormones? Bioidentical hormones are just like natural hormones found in your body. They have the same chemical make-up as natural hormones and also create the same physiological response, meaning they act exactly like naturally-occurring hormones.

BHRT or Natural Hormone Therapy
Hormones have a big role to play for our health. Hormones moderate a variety of daily functions from how our metabolism burns fat, to the health of our skin, to our mood and energy level. Hormone imbalances or decreased hormones can lead to a variety of issues for men and women. At KDR MedSpa & Wellness, we provide natural hormone therapy to women at our office in Newton.

How Does BHRT Work?
As the name suggests, bioidentical hormones are synthetic hormones that are chemically identical to the ones our bodies naturally produce. As we age we may notice the effects of hormone imbalance caused by a decrease in hormone production in our bodies. BHRT can improve our quality of life by making up for our body’s decreased production of necessary hormones.
What Are Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance?
Some of the common signs of hormone imbalance are diminished energy, insomnia, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, depression, irritability, indecision, fatigue, etc. One issue with hormone imbalance is that many people do not consciously realize that health issues are caused by an imbalance of hormones.
Frequently Asked Questions About BHRT
If you have any questions about Botox Cosmetic Injections, we highly recommend that you contact KDR MedSpa & Wellness. Our office would be happy to answer any of your specific questions. We also wanted to address a few commonly asked questions:
Hormone levels are affected by a variety of lifestyle behaviors as well as some things that are out of our control. As we age our bodies might shift in how they produce hormones which can cause imbalance. Some lifestyle decisions to stay aware of are:
Diet: Artificial ingredients, processed foods, saturated fats, and foods with high sugar content can all affect hormone production. Maintaining a healthy diet with organic foods can prevent hormone imbalance.
Exercise: Not exercising can put your body at risk in a variety of ways. Simply going on long walks; runs, or going to the gym can help improve hormone production as well as prevent other health concerns like heart disease.
Environment: Air pollution has been studied in how it potentially affects our body’s abilities to produce hormones. Living in a densely populated area with polluted air may contribute to hormonal imbalance.
Stress: Daily stressors can greatly impact how our bodies produce hormones. Decreasing stress through mediation, relaxation, and other techniques can help promote a healthier body.
The key difference between bioidentical and conventional hormones is that bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones our bodies naturally produce. Hormones in traditional hormone therapy are synthetic or taken from animals. This lead to some concerns as those hormones are not chemically the same as the hormones we naturally products.
Because BHRT uses bioidentical hormones, it is considered a safe procedure to treat menopausal symptoms or other symptoms related to hormonal imbalance. However, like any medical procedure there are always risks. It is important to go to a licensed medical provider and discuss any potential concerns with them.
Hormone therapy is often spoken of or even marketed in relation to how it affects weight loss. This is because hormones have a large role in our body’s metabolism and how we burn fat. That being said; hormone therapy might not be recommended for weight loss. The healthiest way to promote weight loss is with diet and exercise.
