    By Dr. Esther Alabi - Pace Wellness
    Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is the treatment of hormonal imbalances seen during peri-menopause and menopause, utilizing the identical forms of hormones that are found in the human body.

    If you have tried to figure out what is happening or perhaps treated your symptoms in...
