Though aging is inevitable, your body doesn’t have to show your age! With today’s modern medicine, we are able to combat many issues associated with aging through a variety of methods, specifically bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). This month we want to take a moment to educate you on the many benefits of our anti-aging therapies.
What is BHRT?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is commonly used when a patient has an imbalance or decrease in the production of hormones that are essential to helping the body and brain function at its best. BHRT uses hormones that are biologically identical to those that are naturally produced by the body with little to no risk.
BHRT for Women
When dealing with menopause, bioidentical hormones are an ideal solution to menopausal symptoms as these hormones are natural and allow our bodies to metabolize correctly.
Unlike synthetic hormones, we can customize bioidentical hormones to suit the patient’s individual needs. With this natural solution, patients can reap the benefits of hormonal balance without the risks that come with using synthetic hormones.
Common symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Hot flashes
- Loss of muscle mass
- Low libido
- Night sweats
- Thinning skin
- Vaginal dryness
- Weight gain
BHRT for Men
As men age, low levels of testosterone, or androgen, can lead to loss of muscle mass, erectile dysfunction, low libido, incontinence, fatigue, and thinning skin.
While this is a natural part of aging, a decrease in testosterone production can significantly impact a man’s quality of life. With BHRT for testosterone, we are able to help restore hormonal balance and alleviate the symptoms of androgen.
Other Benefits of BHRT
By restoring your hormones to optimal levels, BHRT is also known to reverse the signs of aging and can actually help you look as good as you feel! Additionally, BHRT may lower your risk for other health concerns such as diabetes, tooth loss, and cataracts.
