Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Aging presents stress, pain, physical and mental changes, including menopause, andropause, and low testosterone for women, and andropause for men.
Hormone imbalance, caused by the endocrine system's glands producing hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, can lead to various age-related issues.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
BHRT is a way to fight aging and balance your hormones. It does this with the use of chemically and biologically identical hormones. This makes BHRT a better choice than conventional hormone replacement therapy, which uses synthetic hormones.
BHRT uses natural hormones that can be administered through various delivery methods, including:
- Skin patches
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Many women seek bioidentical hormone replacement as a way to combat menopause. After women hit a certain age, their body goes through this drastic change. Menopause can also be caused at any age by a woman who has received a hysterectomy.
Some of the more alarming signs and symptoms of female hormonal imbalance include:
- Hot flashes (hot flushes)
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Mood swings
- Bone density loss
- Memory loss
Menopausal symptoms stem from decreased levels of estrogen (oestrogen) and progesterone. These hormones can be restored with BHRT. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a natural and effective way to address women's health.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Just as women suffer from menopause, men deal with andropause. Andropause is often synonymous with low testosterone. As a man ages, his testosterone levels drastically decrease and lead to the condition also known as Low-T.
Low testosterone symptoms include:
- Memory Loss
- Joint pain
- Poor concentration
Andropause and low testosterone can be treated with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. BHRT uses natural testosterone to restore vigor and make men feel young again.
