Women and men experience hormone imbalance at different stages of their lives. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help to balance hormones and relieve symptoms such as: fatigue, insomnia, weight gain, anxiety, depression, memory loss and more! There are many options for both men and women when it comes to BHRT. Bio-identical hormones come from the same source as the body’s own hormones which means they will not conflict with any other medication or supplements you may be taking. Bio- identical Hormones have been used by doctors for over 60 years now with proven success rates in relieving symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance.
Hormones are chemical substances that are produced within our bodies that help to control how various processes work, including metabolism, growth and reproduction. There are several different hormones which every human being has but sometimes due to certain reasons these hormones become imbalanced leading to varied health problems like tiredness , depression etc.. This imbalance can reversed with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
Hormones like thyroid , growth hormone (GH) and testosterone play an important role when it comes to muscle building and development but sometime due to certain reasons these too become imbalanced leading to varied health problems like obesity , low energy levels etc., Bioidentical HRT can be used here too with successful results. During menopause Bioidentical HRT comes as a boon to women who are going through this phase. Bio-Identical hormone therapy can be used for relief from symptoms caused due to menopause like night sweats , mood swings etc.,
Bio identical hormones are chemical substances that resemble natural human hormone (endogenous) such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and others but they do not share exactly the same properties. They may be synthesized chemically or produced by recombinant DNA technology; however, these synthetic forms have adverse effects such as heart disease, stroke and cancer. Bio identical hormones are not foreign substances to the body but they mimic our own bio identical hormone forms produced by our body which means that the side effects will be much less.
What Do Bio-Identical Hormones Work So Well?
Bio-identical hormones have a chemical structure that exactly matches human steroidal hormones made naturally by the ovaries and testicles – which makes them more efficient in relieving symptoms than foreign drugs like progesterone that come from animals or lab synthesized chemicals based on plant compounds. When bio identical hormone replacement therapy is done correctly using topical creams rather than pills people can avoid many of estrogen dominance symptoms commonly associated with menopause including menstrual irregularities, vaginal dryness & hot flashes. In fact because they are absorbed through the skin Bio identical hormones are actually more potent than the pills that women take. Bio-identical hormone therapy can also be used to relieve symptoms associated with andropause (male version of menopause) including fatigue, irritability, memory loss & weight gain
Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been used for many years to treat hormone deficiencies. Bio identical hormones are the same molecules as those found in the human body, but they can be synthesized or manufactured. These man-made forms of reproductive hormones may be bioidentical to natural human estrogen, progesterone and testosterone that exist within humans bodies. The focus is on balancing one’s own endocrine system with Bio Identical Hormones by using BHRT instead of anabolic steroids which aren’t nearly as safe or effective! They mimic the action of natural hormones in our bodies and help to restore balance in various processes causing benefits such as weight loss, improved mood or libido etc.. Bioidentical HCG is a form of bio identical hormone which has been known for its fat reducing properties.
One of the reasons people feel better on Bio Identical Hormones is because Bio Identical Hormones communicate with tissues in the body, telling them these are same hormones that you naturally produced in your 20’s and 30’s.
Bioidentical hormones can be prescribed by a doctor when you need them: during pregnancy; after hysterectomy or other surgeries performed upon your reproductive organs; if you want to try having children but have had problems conceiving due to low progesterone levels; if you’re going through perimenopause, which occurs before full-on menopause kicks in. Bioidenticals are available in many forms including pill form, cream, troches, suppositories and even liquid. Bioidentical hormones derived from plants, such as soy and wild yam, are called phytoestrogens. Bioidenticals work the same way your body’s own hormone works when it is in balance.
If you’re concerned about symptoms of aging such as aching joints, weight gain, poor memory or lack of energy, an experienced hormone specialist can navigate you through those symptoms with ease. That’s because a majority of the common problems associated with aging are a result of declining amounts of hormones in the body. The great news is it doesn’t take very much at all to get you right back on track.
BHRT is typically used as people age and hormone levels drop, particularly for women who are in perimenopause or menopause. It’s used to increase the levels of the hormones that have dropped and improve moderate to severe menopause symptoms, including:
- hot flashes
- night sweats
- mood swings
- sleep problems
- lack of energy
Because Bio identical hormones are recognized as the same molecule produced by your ovaries, testicles or adrenal glands and they’re biologically compatible with our human cells; they don’t need to be processed through the liver before being used. This means they’re more efficiently absorbed into the blood stream where you can enjoy all their benefits without suffering from many side effects. On average bioidentical HRT will reduce hot flashes by 60%, night sweats 50-75% and anxiety about half because it does not interfere with the nervous system as some prescription drugs do. The dosage for this type of medication is very limited compared to conventional medications which results in fewer health risks.
Bio identical Hormones can be taken orally, sublingually (dissolves under the tongue), transdermal through lotion form. Most experts endorse the topical form or cream because it is absorbed into the bloodstream at a much higher rate than if taken orally . Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can be administered in many forms including sublingual spray, pellets implanted under the skin and oral pills.
In addition Bio identical progesterone, although not approved by the FDA for this purpose , works synergistically with bio identical estrogens to prevent endometrial ovulation and cancer. Bio identical progesterone also protects against breast, cervical , and other hormone-sensitive cancers .
Testosterone Bio identical testosterone is used to treat many andropause symptoms, including sexual dysfunction or loss of libido as well as low energy levels. Bio identical testosterone replacement therapy restores hormone balance in the body by delivering targeted doses directly into your bloodstream .
