Hormone Replacement Therapy
Most women between the ages of 35 and 50 may start noticing:
- A decline in sexual desire
- Anxiety and/or depression
- Decreased energy levels
- Difficulty losing weight or unexplained weight gain
- Increased vaginal dryness
- Irritability or frequent changes in mood
Similar to our protocols for men, we combine comprehensive lab testing and ongoing physician guidance to our bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) programs to help restore proper levels using hormones identical in structure to those which are naturally produced by our bodies. Once we have pinpointed your biological deficiencies, we can implement our customized treatment plans to bring balance to your hormonal function.
WHAT IS BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, often referred to as bioidentical hormone therapy or natural hormone therapy, involves the use of human-made hormones derived from plant estrogens, which are chemically identical to those produced in the human body. While BHRT is most frequently used today to ease the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause in women, it can also be used to effectively treat and balance hormone deficiencies in men. BHRT may also be administered in various forms, such as injections, pills, patches, creams and gels.
Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapies that use synthetic hormones or hormones derived from animals, BHRT is entirely natural. Studies have shown significant long-term health benefits with natural hormone optimization, such as reducing the risks of diseases and unpleasant symptoms associated with low testosterone and other hormonal imbalances. While testosterone is the most common replicated hormone for men, other hormones such as progesterone can be included in your treatment as well depending on your body’s needs.
