BHRT: A Powerful Way to Treat Menopause
Understanding what is happening in your body during menopause and perimenopause, and how to manage it, can help make this transition more comfortable. Bioidentical hormone specialists at South County Med Spa & Wellness Center in San Jose California can help you get a clear picture of your health and create a customized plan for total hormonal wellness.
Declining hormones can have a significant impact on the way you feel, both physically and emotionally. Most traditional medical treatments only focus on managing your symptoms of menopause, but do not solve the root cause of the problem: imbalanced hormones. Jumnah Thanapathy, M.D.’s Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy program will address your symptoms at their source and has the ability to relieve your discomforts, and in some cases, eliminate them. With this kind of relief, women experiencing menopausal symptoms can expect to see a dramatic improvement in the quality of their life.
Because of the natural hormones used in Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, the hormones are metabolized by the body faster and easier and with little to no side effects. With hormones in balance, women are able to enjoy renewed energy, better health and a more positive outlook on life.

Treating Menopause With BHRT
While hormone replacement therapy can’t stop your body from going through this natural process, it can help to reduce or eliminate many of the associated symptoms. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is a particular form of hormone replacement therapy that uses, as the name suggests, bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from natural sources such as soy and yams, but what makes them truly unique is that they are chemically identical to the natural hormones that your body normally produces. This means that when you give your body bioidentical hormones to supplement those that your body is not producing, it really can’t tell the difference! This is not the case with synthetic hormones.
Synthetic hormones are not identical to your body’s natural hormones. Synthetic hormones are altered with unnatural chemical components so that their formulas can be patented by their manufacturers. Many women have tried synthetic hormones but later switched to bioidentical hormones because of adverse side-effects caused by the synthetic hormones.
