Though menopause is a natural part of every woman’s life, some women may find the symptoms associated with menopause unbearable. Whether you have occasional issues with menopause symptoms or if it has consumed a large part of your life at South Country Med Spa & Wellness, our staff is here to help you find relief and find the right solution that suits your concerns and lifestyle.
Menopause marks the end of menstruation and can be diagnosed after 12 months without menstruation. This often occurs between the ages of 40 to 50 but can occur sooner for some women.
Each woman experiences menopause differently. Some women may have severe symptoms that interfere with their day-to-day ability and other women may have infrequent and minimal symptoms. Common symptoms associated with menopause include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Dry skin
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Slowed metabolism
- Thinning of hair
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain
What is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, also known as BHRT, is an ideal treatment option for patients with a hormonal imbalance or a decrease in the production of hormones that are essential to helping the body and brain function at their best.
BHRT uses hormones that are biologically identical to those that are naturally produced by the body with little to no risk. Treatment can come in a variety of forms, including injections, creams, pills, patches, gels, and insertable pellets. During your consultation, your doctor will work with you to decide which treatment option is best for your needs.
Menopause and BHRT
Are you tired of experiencing anxiety and sleep disruption associated with menopause? Fortunately at South County Med Spa & Wellness, we offer various forms of hormone therapy to replenish lost hormones and restore balance to your body.
Is treatment safe?
Before you use any medication, the first question to ask yourself is whether the treatment is safe or not. During your consultation, we will discuss the risk and side effects of each treatment option. Overall, BHRT is safer compared to the HRT versions as it uses hormones similar to those you naturally produce lowering the risk of getting cancer or heart disease.
Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement
Here are the advantages of taking Bioidentical Hormone Replacement during menopause:
- It matches your body’s hormones–Unlike other hormones, bioidentical hormones are made of estrogen derived from plant sources. The estrogen present in plants is synthesized to mimic your body’s chemical structures, making it easier for your body to accept it.
- Controls symptoms–Bioidentical hormones stabilize your body when in balance helping to alleviate symptoms and improve your overall condition, mood, and functionality.
- It gives you better hair and skin–Sometimes, menopause can cause tons of problems like sagging skin and wrinkles. Taking bioidentical hormones will restore your body’s collagen and elastin production, thus giving you a healthier and vibrant appearance.
BHRT is a better option for women who are finding it hard to keep up with menopause’s hormonal imbalance. By using bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, we can restore hormonal balance within your body and potentially lessen the symptoms. It is not uncommon for patients to notice a decrease in symptoms following the initial treatment sessions, enabling them to move toward a better quality of life.
We encourage and strive to help patients make lifestyle changes beneficial to hormonal treatment. A hormone-friendly diet rich in nutrients, adequate sleep daily, and regular exercise will also help patients to maintain balance.
