What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Hormones are chemical messengers that control many body functions, and they should exist in harmony with each other. As men and women get older, hormone levels decline. Some hormones decline more than others, leaving the person in hormonal imbalance. When the balance is lost, the hormone deficiencies and excesses can cause chronic symptoms and disorders, while raising the risk for disease. Most age-related diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure are commonly associated with hormonal imbalances.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy uses hormones that are identical to the body’s endogenous hormones to replenish what the body cannot produce. As aging occurs, the endocrine glands, which include the ovaries, uterus, testicles, thyroid, adrenals, and pituitary gland begin to lose their ability to produce vital hormones. Because the hormones secreted from these glands all maintain countless bodily functions, men and women may begin to notice drastic changes that occur with aging and hormonal decline.
Some of these changes may include insomnia, sexual dysfunction, hot flashes, night sweats, low libido, anxiety, depression, fatigue, high blood pressure, wrinkling skin, bone loss, thinning hair, urinary issues, and muscle atrophy.
