At some point in their lives all women deal with symptoms of hormone imbalance, often due to menopause. Common symptoms include mood swings, dry skin, hot flashes, loss of memory and loss of sex drive. These symptoms are overwhelming for busy women with multiple responsibilities.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) can help balance fluctuating hormone levels and lessen or eliminate many of the symptoms of hormone imbalance. BHRT gives women like you control of their lives.
What Is Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy?
Hormone imbalance is a complicated problem that often requires hormone therapy as a part of treatment. Physicians have been prescribing hormone therapy for decades, but have not always had the option of bio-identical hormone therapy. Bio-identical hormones are compounded to match the exact structure of the hormones of each individual patient.
Synthetic hormones are not specifically made for each patient so they can have a variety of negative side effects because the body treats them as toxic. BHRT uses hormones that are exactly the same as the patients so the body treats them the same way has hormones created in the ovaries.
What Exactly Is Menopause?
When thinking about menopause women tend to think of the common symptoms: hot flashes, trouble sleeping, changes in sexual interest, and the end of periods. These symptoms are all caused by changes in a woman’s hormone balance.
As women age the ovaries gradually stop producing as many hormones and the menstrual cycle grinds to a stop.Hormones have complex and far-reaching effects in the body and changing levels require adjustment. Any hormonal imbalance can cause discomfort and changes in the body. The sudden decrease associated with menopause is no exception.
