Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

BHRTAging, disease, and lifestyle can impact changes in the body that manipulate hormone balance. When the sensitive balance of hormones is interrupted, unwelcome symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, low libido and mood swings- just to name a few- are experienced. These symptoms can harm the quality of life and escalate the risk of disease.

What is BHRT?

The aging process affects us all in different ways. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is the leading solution for hormone imbalance and an effective way to alleviate symptoms and protect against the risk of heart disease and osteoporosis.  Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones derived from plant extracts and designed to be structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body. With a supervised treatment plan, BHRT can improve the health and quality of life in men and women distressed by symptoms and conditions of hormone imbalance such as:

  • Menopause
  • Andropause (also referred to as “Man-opause”)
  • Low Testosterone
  • Muscle Loss
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Decreased Libido
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Vaginal Dryness


Who Needs BHRT?

Everybody has hormones, and they decrease as we age. Believe it or not, a decline in optimal health can occur at any age. Weight gain, hair loss, fatigue, and low libido are just a few examples of common symptoms of aging that should not be brushed off as a humble “reality.” Dr. Plucknett offers a preventive methodology to optimal health through natural bioidentical hormones, nutrition guiding, fitness recommendations and specialized metabolic testing. Our progressive and wide-ranging solutions will allow you to enjoy restored energy, and renewed youthfulness, to live a life full of quality and vigor.


Women face a multitude of hormonal fluctuations throughout the lifecycle – menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopause, and menopause- all of which can influence the delicate stability of hormonal harmony. Women profit from monitoring their hormone levels as early as age 30 to create a healthy baseline and maintain balance. Through lifestyle changes and BHRT, women can avoid or remedy symptoms of hormone imbalance, such as weight gain, low energy, hot flashes and mood swings.*


Low testosterone is a universal form of hormone imbalance faced by men. Low testosterone can reveal itself in a visible manner, affecting mood, weight, and sexual performance, outwardly all at once. This time in a man’s life is referred to as Andropause, or “the male menopause.” Nonetheless, most men will face constant changes as a result of hormonal imbalance, yet it can be rectified with a comprehensive treatment plan that incorporates bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.*
