Bioidentical hormone replacement can keep you feeling and looking great!

BHRT can change a difficult transition into an easy one. 

Our body’s hormones control most of our 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. So, when your hormones are out of balance, even slightly, it can have a big impact on your health and well-being.           

BHRT can be used to treat people when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. It is most frequently used to ease symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, insulin resistance, osteoporosis, adrenal, and thyroid disorders. Bio-Identical hormones match exactly what the body makes and move smoothly through the metabolic pathways easing uncomfortable signs and symptoms of hormone level disruptions.

Hormone Replacement is not a new treatment

You may have heard it can be unhealthy, but that is a different type of hormone replacement therapy. HRT has been studied for decades and used as a treatment for decades. One of the longest, best known studies on the subject was the Women’s Health Initiative. My mother participated in that study for several years. It was something she was proud of doing. It was the Women Health Initiative study that proved that although synthetic hormone replacement can help relieve menopausal symptoms, it could also increase the risk for certain types of cancer.

 

Pharmaceutical hormone medications, that are prescribed for menopause, are not bioidentical. They have a different chemical structure than the hormones made by the human body. This different structure is believed to cause the synthetic hormones to get stuck in the hormone receptor sites; taking several days to move through the metabolic pathways. 

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy matches exactly what the body makes and moves smoothly, and quickly through the metabolic pathways without difficulty, safely easing unwanted menopausal symptoms.

 

Feel your best.
