Bio-Identical Hormones (BHRT)
Our bodies use hormones to support digestion, sleep patterns, brain function, growth, and even sexual activity. When hormonal changes occur, some symptoms can affect how you comfortably live your life.
Our concerns for our patients extend to improving their quality of life by using methods that we know work. If you are experiencing fatigue, chronic headaches, low libido, erectile dysfunction, or depression, reach out to our Medical Center
Womens Care to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sabine Wunschmann quickly to improve your health as she provides a holistic, integrated approach to healthcare, combining cutting-edge treatments with preventative functional medicine. We use Bio-identical hormones to optimise our patients’ hormones so they can live a life they love and do the things they enjoy.
Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones that are made naturally in the human body. The term “bio-identical” indicates that the chemical structure of the replacement hormone is identical to that of the hormone naturally found in the human body. In order for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to fully replicate the function of hormones which were originally naturally produced and present in the human body, the chemical structure must exactly match the original.
Women that are perimenopausal or much younger (in their 20s, 30s or 40s), may find that they have symptoms of a hormonal imbalance. This may present as PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), endometriosis, poor fertility or multiple miscarriages, bad PMS, weight issues, anaemia and so forth. In these instances, we assess the hormone profile and balance the hormones in order to optimise and improve wellbeing.
Some signs of hormonal imbalance in women include:
- Migraines or headaches
- Weight gain
- Decreased libido
- Heavy bleeding during periods
- Lack of energy
- Painful sex
- Vaginal dryness
- Mood swings
- Hair loss
BHRT is a really effective treatment and very safe. We use it to replenish any depleted hormones to the levels that are optimal for the individual.

When we look at your hormone profile to ascertain your optimal levels, we look at the whole range of hormones including pregnenolone, DHEA, growth hormone, melatonin, cortisol, thyroid, oestrogen, and progesterone (plus many more!).
We tailor every treatment regime to the individual and take into account not only symptoms and test results but your lifestyle, individual reactions to doses, age and fertility.
At Womens Care we monitor our patients closely after they receive hormone treatment. Your dosage will be adjusted regularly based on your needs and any symptoms you’re having.
As dr. Sabine Wunschmann says : Hormone balance is achievable at any age, and you’ll be delighted with the difference it will make in how you look and fell after the treatment!
