What Are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Refresh Life Wellness in Antioch, TN, offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help their patients restore their health. There are many reasons that a hormone imbalance occurs in the body, including pregnancy, menopause, genetics, age, certain medications, medical conditions, stress, or poor nutrition, which can lead to insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, and mood swings. Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones that match the ones created by your body.
Board-certified family practitioner Dr. Kimberly Collins offers this therapy as a natural way to help correct hormone imbalances. This treatment can improve digestion, help with immune function and mood swings, and even help with your mood.

How bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treatment works
Progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen are some of the most common hormones that can be replicated with BHRT. During a one-on-one consultation, Dr. Collins will create a custom plan that matches your needs. We will conduct blood work and diagnostic testing to measure your current hormone levels, helping us determine the proper dosage and treatment form to treat your health best. This testing also tells us which hormones are out of balance. It's crucial to follow all post-treatment instructions from Dr. Collins as some patients may experience side effects, such as mood swings or hair growth, as their bodies adjust to new hormone levels.
