Benefits of BHRT
Regain – Restore — Rejuvenate
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help women and men to overcome many of the challenges that are associated with hormonal imbalances. Hormones are important chemical messengers that signal the body to carry out numerous critical functions. Factors such as stress, aging, the environment, poor nutrition, excessive processed food, and a lack of exercise can cause hormones to fall out of balance.
Benefits For Women
Bio-identical hormones can help women of all ages that are suffering with hormonal imbalances. Usually, hormonal imbalances occur with aging, during perimenopause and menopause, and this can cause symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain, low libido, thinning bones, and vaginal dryness. However, women can also experience issues during their reproductive years that sprout from hormonal imbalances, such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, increased PMS symptoms, infertility, and painful periods. The changes in hormone levels can cause many unpleasant symptoms to appear; however, bio-identical hormones can relieve many of the symptoms that occur with hormone deficiencies.
Benefits For Men
Around the age of 30, testosterone levels for a man begin to decline. By 40 to 50, men experience a significant decline. This decline in hormonal function is known as Andropause, or male menopause and can cause symptoms such as cognitive decline, erectile dysfunction, low libido, hair loss, muscle atrophy, fatigue, mood swings, thinning bones and weight gain. Hormones affect several bodily functions and an imbalance can interfere with daily living and the quality the life. By supplementing hormones, the symptoms of Andropause can be greatly reduced. Benefits of BHRT for both men and women can include:
Balanced Emotions – Hormone fluctuations can influence moods, and sometimes, anxiety, anger, depression, or panic can present because of imbalanced hormone levels. When hormones are balanced, brain chemistry functions normally, and moods become normal and even.
Increased Cognitive Ability – Declines and imbalances in hormones can lead to a noticeable decline in brain function. Boosting and re-balancing hormones can improve memory, alertness and concentration and reduce “brain fog.”
Regular Sleep Patterns – Insomnia may result from hormonal interference in the messages sent to the hypothalamus, which acts as the body’s internal clock.
Increased Muscle Mass – Muscle mass is affected by testosterone levels, and muscles can atrophy if not enough testosterone is present.
Fat Loss – Imbalances in estrogen and progesterone can cause women and men to retain extra fat, and hormone imbalances can cause muscle to atrophy.
Increased Libido – Testosterone is involved in sexual and reproductive functions, and increased amounts can increase sexual desire and function.
Decreased Hair Thinning – Testosterone plays a role in hair growth and hair follicle death. When hair cells lack proper chemicals, they self-destruct, and hair no longer grows back.
Increased Sexual Function – Bio-identical Hormone therapy can boost libido and diminish vaginal dryness and erectile dysfunction to help men and women regain their sexual function.
Increased Bone Density – Estrogen and testosterone directly affects calcium absorption, and when the bones do not correctly absorb calcium, they become brittle and porous.
Regular Body Temperature – The body’s thermostat, which is controlled by the hypothalamus, can receive incorrect signals to cause night sweats, hot flashes, and cold sweats when hormones are out of balance.
