An easy, natural way to restore the health of your youth
The aging process is natural. We experience prime health when we’re younger and it declines as we get older. As we age, our natural hormone levels become depleted, which increases fatigue, irritability, mood swings and other symptoms of hormonal imbalance. For women, perimenopause and menopause can bring hot flashes and sleep disorders. Men tend to experience a loss of strength and muscle mass.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), an anti-aging treatment method, restores those essential hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone to its proper levels. After BHRT treatment, patients report feeling younger and having more energy.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones come from natural plant sources, which are exact replicas to hormones produced naturally in the human body. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are the most commonly replicated and used in BHRT treatment. Women utilize the treatment more frequently, primarily to alleviate symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, but it can also be used to treat conditions such as adrenal and thyroid disorders, osteoporosis and fibromyalgia.
In the beginning of your BHRT treatment, you may experience side effects as your body adjusts to the hormones. It’s important to discuss the pros and cons with your doctor before using any hormone replacement therapy. Some may experience side effects that include acne, bloating, weight gain, fatigue and mood swings.
What are the benefits of BHRT Therapy?
Once men reach their 40s, they experience a gradual decline in testosterone. After the age of 50, most men work harder at trying to maintain a younger version of themselves. While this is a natural part of aging, it’s completely avoidable. BHRT therapy will allow men to restore the benefits of naturally-produced testosterone.
BHRT benefits for men:
- Increased energy and sex drive
- Decreased cholesterol and body fat
- Increased muscle mass
- Reduced risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease
- Enhanced immune system
For women experiencing perimenopause or menopause, BHRT therapy can increase the levels of hormones that have dropped, as well as improve menopause symptoms including: hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes and weight gain.
BHRT benefits for women:
- Improved skin tone
- Weight loss
- Increased energy
- Improved mood
- Relief from hot flashes
