How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Work?
There are several methods for applying bioidentical hormones. Depending on the symptoms or the condition that you are trying to treat will determine which method of application you use. Some common forms of delivering BHRT include the following:
- Topical creams
- Vaginal suppositories
- Oral capsules and pills
- Sublingual (under the tongue) drops or lozenges
While these methods of application may sound simple, it’s important to remember that BHRT treatments are extremely holistic and individual. Here at Port Orchard Natural Medicine in Bremerton, Dr. Robertson will walk you through a holistic approach to balancing your hormones in the most efficient way for your condition.
How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Help Women?
Women especially suffer the effects of hormone production decline as they age. While hormone levels decline, women will experience a number of uncomfortable symptoms. These symptoms are often treatable through BHRT. Some symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women include:
- Hot flashes
- Weight gain
- Decreased libido
- Mood swings including depression
- Memory loss
- Headaches and migraines
- Bone density loss
Many women who begin to experience one or more of these symptoms will struggle — as these symptoms are quite severe and far from fun. Don’t despair though! With the right BHRT treatments, you can balance your hormones naturally and start feeling your best again.
How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Help Men?
Men also suffer hormonal imbalances as a result of age. While women experience menopause, men go through andropause. While andropause has a more gradual onset than menopause, it still may affect men in similar ways.
Symptoms of low testosterone or a hormonal imbalance in men include:
- Decreased or low libido
- Depression or other mood changes
- Poor concentration or memory
- Joint pain
