BIOIDENTICAL
HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY

Bioidentical hormones are manmade hormones that are designed to treat hormonal imbalances in patients. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant estrogens, the most common hormones being replicated are testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone.

 

While bioidentical hormone replacement therapy may be an intimidating topic for some, we are here to assure you that it is both a safe and effective method of treating hormonal imbalance.

Why Does Someone Need BHRT?

An unfortunate reality of aging is that men and women alike will experience a decline in natural hormone production. The lower levels of hormone production can cause all kinds of mental and emotional effects on an individual.

This is why people will try to balance their hormones as they age. It’s necessary for both physical and emotional well-being to balance hormones as we age.

How Does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Work?

As mentioned above, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is derived from plant estrogens and is used to treat unpleasant symptoms arising from things like menopause, perimenopause, and a plethora of other hormone-related conditions.

Other conditions that are commonly treated with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy include:

  • Adrenal disorders and fatigue
  • Insulin resistance
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Thyroid problems
  • Osteoporosis

BHRT Therapy For Men

Contrary to what some might think, hormonal decline and fluctuations are also common among aging men. Men suffer decreasing levels of testosterone as they age and while women deal with menopause, men have to deal with andropause.

Here are some male symptoms that could indicate low testosterone levels and hormonal imbalance:

  • Low libido
  • Poor concentration & memory loss
  • Joint pain
  • Depression

As a male, perhaps you have not entirely been educated on the likelihood of suffering a hormonal imbalance with the onset of age as much as a woman has, so you may even find this information shocking.

If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms and suspect that you have low testosterone, talk with a BHRT specialist today.

  • Weight gain
  • Uncomfortable heat flashes
  • Low libido
  • Fatigue
  • Depression & mood swings
  • Bone density loss
  • Consistent migraines
  • Memory loss

Whether you experience one or multiple of these symptoms, it’s enough to make anyone concerned about their overall health. Don’t enter panic mode though! Taking care of a hormonal imbalance is often far more simple than you might think.
