AS GOOD AS YOU
Hormonal ups and downs can wreak havoc on a woman’s life. With a few exceptions to the rule, most women need to begin bioidentical hormone replacement therapy around the time that they begin experiencing symptoms of menopause. Waiting until menopause is in full swing will cause unnecessary suffering. Addressing hormone deficiencies during perimenopause, and continuing to reevaluate as your progress through the process, will make things go much more smoothly. Hormones can affect your mood, your weight, your food cravings, even your desire for sex.
When you meet with the specialists at Biorestoration Medical, our goal will be to determine which hormones you are lacking, and in what amounts. We accomplish this with a simple blood draw, as well as some easy, noninvasive tests. Once we’ve designed a BHRT program that meets your specific needs, our pharmacists will custom craft your medications, and create a BHRT regimen that is identical to your body’s natural hormones. We’ll reevaluate your hormone levels periodically, and make any necessary adjustments to keep your body functioning at its best.
Traditional hormone replacement therapy is meant to treat only the symptoms of menopause, with little regard for the effect on all the systems of the body. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy utilizes hormones that function exactly like those that your body naturally produces do, which creates harmony and cooperation throughout all of your body’s systems. Because BHRT hormones fit your receptor sites exactly, they can be put to use in all of your body systems, without all the harmful side effects of other types of hormone replacement therapy. Not only will your symptoms of menopause be relieved, but you will also experience an overall feeling of increased health and wellbeing as the signs of aging are healed throughout your body.
As we get older, it is a natural occurrence for our body’s hormones to decrease. Unfortunately, with this decrease in hormones often comes a wide-ranging list of negative effects on our health and general well-being. For aging women, the onset of menopause can trigger significant hormonal fluctuations, causing significant emotional, mental, and physical distress. For aging men, lower testosterone can cause a decrease in sex drive or sexual dysfunction, weight gain, mood changes, muscle loss, and issues with memory and concentration. Some individuals choose to take vitamins, herbal supplements, or traditional hormone replacement drugs to attempt to alleviate the symptoms associated with their hormonal imbalances. Some or all of these options may help some with certain symptoms, but none of them are capable of providing the comprehensive, customized solution that bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) offers.
Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy, your BHRT program is custom-tailored to match your body’s natural hormones exactly, helping you rebalance and rebuild your best, healthiest self. After determining which hormones your body needs, your plan of care is crafted specifically for you. Your hormone levels will be tested periodically thereafter.
