What Are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones?
Our bodies start to change as we age. We may not feel as youthful or vibrant as we once did. For example, we may feel fatigued or have a disinterest in things that used to bring us joy. Fortunately, there are hormone replacement therapies to help you get back to feeling like yourself again.
Bioidentical Hormones: The Natural Approach to Hormone Replacement Therapy
Perhaps the most important benefit of bioidentical hormones is their resemblance to the structure of human hormones. The hormones used in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy or BRHT are derived from plant-based materials that closely resemble the structure of estrogen and testosterone. So, they’re very similar to the hormones used in the human body.
Due to this similarity, BHRT hormones are more easily accepted by your body, meaning they’re a safer treatment. Plus, they’re proven effective for the treatment of hormone imbalance. Their structure decreases your chances of having any adverse reaction after your therapy.
What Are the Other Benefits of Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones can improve the symptoms of aging for both men and women. For example, for men, BHRT can:
- Increase energy
- Increase sex drive
- Improve memory
- Lower anxiety or depression
- Help you build or retain muscle mass
For women, BHRT can:
- Reduce fatigue
- Relieve anxiety and depression
- Prevent osteoporosis
- Reduce symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness
BHRT can also help men and women prevent medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes that can lead to severe physical symptoms. Some men and women also find that their hair, skin and nails are stronger, reducing the signs of aging such as wrinkles and hair loss.
Types of BHRT Treatments
At Balance Hormone Center, we can use BHRT pellets, injections, troches or creams to provide hormone replacement. For example, the pellets can be inserted right beneath your skin and start to administer hormones immediately. Or, we can provide an easy-to-apply cream for topical use.
We’ll discuss your options as well as your treatment needs during your first appointment to ensure we create the best treatment plan for you.
