Aging is inevitable, but do you really have to let it get you down? 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 some of 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 their best. This hormone replacement therapy 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 as they are natural and allow our bodies to metabolize correctly. Unlike synthetic hormones, we can customize bioidentical hormones to fit the individual needs of the patient. With this natural solution to symptom relief, patients can reap the benefits of hormonal balance without the risks that come with using synthetic hormones. Common symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:
- hot flashes
- weight gain
- night sweats
- difficulty sleeping
- vaginal dryness
- thinning skin
- low libido
- loss of muscle mass
BHRT for Men
Testosterone is an essential ingredient for creating energy, regulating the immune system, strength, libido, and various other health factors. 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
Because we are restoring your hormones to the levels they were at when you were younger, these treatments are also known to reverse the signs of aging. Your anti-aging replacement therapy plan can actually help you look as good as you feel! Additionally, BHRT can also help to reduce your risk for other health concerns such as diabetes, tooth loss, and cataracts.
