What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
Fluctuating hormones are as much a part of life as the wrinkles that start to appear on your forehead. As we approach middle-age we start to notice changes in our body and moods based on declining hormones. Men will notice how hormone changes impact their lives during sex when they struggle to perform or “get in the mood.” The symptoms that start to emerge for women are similar to symptoms they’ve been experiencing for decades as a result of their menstruation cycle and include: lack of energy, changes in mood, weight gain and low libido. While BHRT helps these everyday symptoms it is also an effective therapy for a variety of debilitating conditions, including adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, and thyroid disorders.
How is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Different?
Traditional hormone replacement therapy is a common solution for the symptoms associated with hormone declines. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, is an alternative natural-based solution. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant-based extracts that are very similar to the hormones in the human body. So much so that bioidentical hormones do not need to be altered in the compounding process.
The similarity between these hormones and those found in our bodies already make treatment with bioidentical hormones easier on the body. Typically patients see results faster, as the hormones are able to metabolize in their bodies more quickly because of their similarity to human hormones. As an added bonus bioidentical hormone replacement therapy does not carry the likelihood of serious complications like synthetic hormone treatment.
How Can BHRT Help Adrenal Fatigue?
One of the main symptoms of unbalanced hormones is low energy levels but adrenal fatigue can also be a result of a stressful lifestyle, poor sleeping habits, unhealthy eating habits. Using BHRT to regulate your hormones can help increase energy levels and help you function at your very best.
How Can BHRT Help Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a condition that can make everyday life difficult. Fatigue, insomnia and muscle pains are common physical side-effects. Although fibromyalgia is a condition that the medical community doesn’t quite agree on many BHRT experts understand that BHRT can help relieve the side effects of this debilitating. Although BHRT won’t solve Fibromyalgia the reduction in symptoms is enough to make you feel like you have your life back.
How Can BHRT Help Thyroid Disorders?
The thyroid is one of the organs in your body that is responsible for your overall well-being. An overactive or underactive thyroid can cause problems like weight gain, fluctuating body temperature, high cholesterol and, sometimes more complicated problems like anemia, heart issues, and liver issues. Bioidentical hormones have been seen to help promote healthy function of the thyroid, leading to a healthier mind and body.
