The hormones of the body are largely responsible for controlling many of its basic bodily functions. They function as a communication system of sorts, allowing cells to communicate with each other and coordinate processes like digestion and growth, immune function, a person’s libido, and even your mood. Hence, even the slightest hormone imbalance may result in significant negative effects throughout the body, manifesting themselves in ways such as being unable to perform in bed or sudden irritability. Thankfully, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is here to save the day.
The body’s hormones will naturally begin to decrease as a person reaches their 30s and 40s which may result in an eventual hormone imbalance. By using naturally derived hormones that are indistinguishable from the human body’s hormones, BHRT employs a tailored approach and helps to reduce the effects of aging while also potentially boosting longevity. In addition, BHRT can help with issues like weight gain, hot flashes, insomnia, or changes in mood.
Besides the aforementioned issues, BHRT may also help patients that are suffering from diseases like diabetes. For patients that are undergoing cancer treatments, BHRT may provide significant relief from symptoms resulting from treatment, including migraines or incontinence. Furthermore, evidence suggests it can promote skin hydration and elasticity as well as reducing wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Correcting a hormone imbalance is a simple process that yields considerable results. Through consultation and meticulous blood analysis, it is possible to determine a patient’s unique BHRT needs and create a customized treatment.
