It was Samantha's fountain of youth in the popular "Sex and the City 2" movie...Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Off of the big screen, the treatment is also becoming very popular among women dealing with menopause, post-menopause and pre-menopause symptoms. In West Ashley, Woodruff Wellness Clinic Owner, Dr. Stephanie Woodruff said she is seeing a growing number of women interested in the treatment.
"BHRT certainly gives us a more natural option to combat those uncomfortable symptoms that many women deal with. It helps us avoid the common synthetic hormones," said Dr. Stephanie Woodruff.
In addition to “Sex and the City 2”, BHRT was noted in Suzanne Somers' most recent book “BREAKTHROUGH: Eight Steps to Wellness”. BHRT is a natural hormone most often comprised of yams and soybeans, and used to treat menopause, pre-menopause and post-menopause symptoms.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is one of the most recent additions to Woodruff Wellness Clinic's lineup of old fashioned and cutting edge treatments. The Woodruff Wellness Clinic takes a multi-disciplinary approach to treating patients in the Charleston community in order to provide the best possible care for each individual.
The clinic also recently added Medical Weight Management to their list of cutting edge treatments.
