Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used to treat men and women who have a hormonal imbalance. The hormones in your body have a direct affect on your mood, appetite, immune functions, energy levels, sleep, and sexual libido. The imbalance can have a big impact on your well-being.
Why Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormone Replacement Therapy has been around for some time. However, transition HRT has synthesized animal phytoestrogens and plant progesterone which isn’t chemically identical to those found in your body. As such, there are more side effects and long-term risks associated with it.
Bio-identical hormones, on the other hand, are made from plants and work the same in your body as your natural hormones. They are chemically identical on the molecular level, allowing your body to react to their arrival as they would naturally produced hormones in your body.
BHRT for Men
The research shows there’s a tremendous amount of benefits for men who use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to fight against aging. In replenishing your testosterone levels back where they were at a younger age, you will experience muscle mass gain, fat loss, energy increase, less fatigue, improved mood and a serious boost to your sexual stamina. In a nutshell, you’ll feel like you’ve gotten back your fervour.
Furthermore, with our focus on preventative care, BHRT extends beyond that. Regulated hormone levels reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke. And the weight management component helps prevent diabetes.
BHRT for Women
BHRT is incredibly usual in helping women during menopause, when estrogen levels decrease. With BHRT, estrogen levels are reduced back to their pre-menopause levels, and the symptoms are alleviated. Women can expect to have reduced fatigue, less migraines, less hot flashes and night sweats, less hair thinning, improve sleep, better mental cognition, and an increased sex drive. Decreased estrogen levels naturally impact all these areas, so therapy reverses the negative consequences. Women can expect to feel more energetic, more in control of their mood, and looking and feeling better.
In addition, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer, as well as to improve the quality of life and general wellbeing of those post-cancer. As pioneers in Preventive care, we can assure you that this is a great treatment for those concerned about their future and interested in taking every precaution to aging without befalling an illness.
What can you expect as a woman undergoing BHRT? Within the first few weeks most of the menopausal symptoms will have subsided. You will feel a sense of happiness with a better quality of life.
While menopause is part of a woman’s natural life cycle, it does come with consequences - the halting of estrogen and progesterone production. This comes with a whole set of symptoms leading up to the beginning of menopause, marked by one full year without a menstrual cycle.
