Aging can be a scary prospect. In addition to the general stress and pains of growing old, we go through a number of physical and mental changes. For women, menopause is a major concern while men deal with andropause and low testosterone.
Many age-related issues are the result of hormone unbalance. Your body has a complex collection of glands called the endocrine system. Each of these glands generates crucial hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen (oestrogen) and progesterone. Excessive or reduced levels of these hormones can wreak havoc on your system.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is the only safe, natural solution to hormonal imbalance.
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.
The natural hormones used in BHRT can be administered with a number of delivery methods. They include:
It's important to note that a provider typically won't utilize all of these hormone delivery methods. The best one for a given situation depends on the needs of the patient and the preference of the provider. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy generally falls in to two categories: BHRT for Women and BHRT for men.
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:
These 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.
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:
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.
In addition to the issues that trouble each gender, men and women can benefit from using BHRT to treat the thyroid disorders known as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Other hormones that can be administered with this treatment include:
Regardless of the delivery method, men and women who are treated with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy see noticeable results. Those treated with BHRT typically see:
Most of all, BHRT helps patients feel normal again. Aging can be scary, yes, but bioidentical hormone replacement is the best tool available to fight back.
