Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Your body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body. They coordinate everything from digestion and growth to your appetite, immune function, mood, and libido. Well-functioning and balanced hormones directly affect every aspect of your life: vitality, aging and overall feeling of well-being.

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a treatment using hormones that are structurally and chemically identical to your own naturally produced hormones. These treatments are used to restore your body’s natural ability to improve vitality, mental health, weight loss, energy, libido, metabolism and much more.

Are Bioidentical Hormones Safe?

When administered and managed correctly, bioidentical hormones are extremely safe and no different than using other medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen or antibiotics. The safety profile of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is superior to over-the-counter drugs. BHRT restores the natural balance a healthy body creates instinctively using identical molecules. The true magic of BHRT is unlocked by the appropriate combination, administration, management and balance of hormones.

Bioidentical hormones are far different than the synthetically manufactured hormones used in some hormone therapies. Synthetic hormones have been clinically shown to increase health risks, such as breast, ovarian and uterine cancers and increase risk of cardiovascular events.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

In addition to outward appearance, there are many wonderful benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy – many of which we’re still learning and seeing positive data from.

1. Bone Health Improvement

Osteoporosis and osteopenia are a major health concern affecting over 53 million Americans and a leading cause of morbidity and disability. Balanced bioidentical hormone replacement therapy improves bone health in all individuals – male and female – but especially in postmenopausal women. BHRT can improve bone health without the risks and side effects of many commonly prescribed bone medications.

2. Improved Memory and Brain Health

BHRT positively impacts brain health by improving memory, focus and concentration. Clinically it has been proven to decrease the risk for age related cognitive decline and the symptom of “brain fog”. Being mentally sharp and aware is the aspiration of everyone as they age.

3. Increased Muscles Mass and Strength

Sarcopenia is a common age-related disease that is newly recognized by the medical community as a significant health issue. Sarcopenia is the loss of muscle mass as you age. This progressive loss of muscle (with diminished strength and endurance) is a leading cause of impaired mobility and functional decline. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy has been proven to reverse these affects, leading to improved quality of life and vitality.

4. Weight Loss

Weight loss is more than “eat less and exercise more”. There is growing evidence that weight management is a hormonal process. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can dramatically enhance any weight loss program’s impact on your metabolism by enhancing fat loss and body composition. BHRT may be the key component to maximizing your weight loss regimen.

5. Increased Energy and Libido

BHRT increases energy levels and improves libido in almost every case. If low levels of estrogen and testosterone have caused a lack of energy and low libido, Bioidentical Hormone Therapy will help enhance your life in these areas in no time.

Risks of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

We are all unique and our body’s respond differently to treatments. While there have been overwhelmingly positive outcomes for many patients, there have been some documented side-effects.

However, if administered, managed and monitored properly, bioidentical replacement hormone therapy has proven to be much safer (and have fewer negative outcomes) than synthetic hormone treatments.
