Why Undergo Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help men and women restore the hormonal balance that is necessary for optimal health and disease prevention as we age. Balanced hormone levels are essential for our bodies to function properly.
As women get older, their bodies become less efficient when it comes to producing these important hormones. This stage is called menopause.
Although menopause is a normal stage of women’s lives and has several advantages, it also comes with a rapid decrease in the body’s vital hormones. This can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms, including fatigue, insomnia, and weight gain.
Male patients can also benefit from bioidentical hormone therapy. Around middle age, men experience andropause, or male menopause, and their testosterone levels naturally decline. This can result in issues like weight gain, sexual-dysfunction problems, hair loss, problems urinating, sleep issues, memory problems, and mood changes.
We can help male and female patients identify whether these symptoms are caused by a hormone imbalance. If so, this imbalance can be corrected with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
What Are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can boost estrogen levels, resulting in improved vaginal health and sex drive. For men, it can boost testosterone levels to address sexual-health problems.
Furthermore, this therapy has been shown to increase the body’s production of proteins like collagen, which promotes healthier skin, nails, and hair. The treatment can also help enhance your mood and promote quality sleep.
Because bioidentical hormone replacement therapy replaces essential hormones, it can aid in the maintenance of strong bones and a healthy heart. Hormones are an important part of your body’s natural defenses against getting sick and experiencing premature aging.
Who Are Candidates for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Candidates for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy typically have at least one significant symptom of hormone imbalance or insufficiency. Most candidates are in their forties, but this isn’t always the case. If you are looking for a reliable, proven therapy to fix symptoms of hormonal imbalance, the treatment may be right for you.
Middle-aged people suffering from fatigue, poor sex drive, mood swings, problems sleeping, weight gain, and aging skin issues may benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
What Happens During the Consultation?
To best treat the symptoms of hormone imbalance, our experts will develop a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy treatment plan that is individualized for each patient. Hormones can be given for months in the form of creams, capsules, injections, and/or pellets placed just under the skin.
You and our skilled practitioner will discuss the best type of bioidentical hormones for you and your condition. When you start this therapy, you will need to be tested on a frequent basis to determine your body’s response.
