Rejuvenate Your Body with Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy
Women today have more options than ever when it comes to their health and wellbeing.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a safe, non-invasive solution for managing the symptoms of menopause and other hormonal imbalances.
Here we’ll discuss what BHRT is, how it works, and the potential benefits for women looking to take control of their health.
What is BHRT?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a form of hormone replacement therapy that uses hormones that are identical in molecular structure to those found naturally in the human body.
These hormones are derived from plant sources such as yams or soybeans and compounded by specialty pharmacies into creams, tablets or injections depending on patient needs.
Benefits of BHRT
The benefits of BHRT vary depending on individual needs, but may include improvement in physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as enhanced libido (sex drive).
In addition, this type of therapy can also help reduce the risk for certain chronic diseases such as osteoporosis. Other potential benefits include increased energy levels and improved skin tone.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is designed to restore the body’s natural hormone levels, which can decline with age, helping to alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, and fatigue.
Since the goal of this surgery is to repair any damage done by previous sexual activity, it can help reduce any discomfort associated with intercourse. This can make sexual activity more enjoyable for both partners.
BHRT has been shown to improve mood, reduce anxiety and depression, and enhance cognitive function in individuals with hormonal imbalances.
BHRT can improve sexual function by increasing libido and reducing sexual dysfunction, such as vaginal dryness and painful intercourse.
BHRT helps to regulate the aging process by balancing hormones, which can improve the body’s overall functioning, and promote healthy aging.
BHRT can help alleviate the symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings, by restoring hormonal balance.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can improve bone density, which can help prevent the development of osteoporosis and reduce the risk of fractures.
How Does It Work?
The goal of BHRT is to restore optimal levels of hormones in order to alleviate symptoms associated with menopause or other hormonal imbalances such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and fatigue.
Depending on individual needs your healthcare provider may recommend either cream applications which can be applied directly onto skin; capsule forms which are taken orally; or injections which are administered directly into the muscle.
What To Expect During Treatment
Before beginning any treatment we will first perform an examination to determine if BHRT is right for you.
Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for this form of therapy we will create a personalized plan tailored to your individual needs based on our assessment results.
This usually involves regular visits over time so progress can be monitored and adjustments made accordingly if necessary.
Traditional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) uses hormones that are similar but not identical to the hormones produced in a woman’s body. BHRT uses hormones that are chemically identical to those produced in the body, which allows for a more personalized and effective treatment approach.
BHRT can help alleviate a range of symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances, including hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, decreased libido, and vaginal dryness.
Women experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalances and who have been diagnosed with a hormonal imbalance by a healthcare provider may be good candidates for BHRT.
BHRT can be administered in several different forms including creams, gels, pellets, and pills. The specific form of BHRT that is best for a patient will be determined by the healthcare provider based on the patient’s specific needs and symptoms.
Bio-identical hormone therapy (BHT) involves the use of hormones that are chemically identical to the ones naturally produced by the human body. Despite its popularity, BHT is not without risks. Some of the potential risks associated with BHT include:
Blood clots: Estrogen can increase the risk of blood clots, which can be life-threatening.
Breast cancer: There is evidence to suggest that long-term use of estrogen-only BHT may increase the risk of breast cancer.
Heart disease: BHT may increase the risk of heart disease, especially in women who have a history of heart disease.
Stroke: BHT may increase the risk of stroke, especially in women who have a history of stroke.
Uterine cancer: Long-term use of estrogen-only BHT can increase the risk of uterine cancer.
It’s important to note that these risks vary depending on the individual and the specific type of BHT being used. Before starting BHT, it is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits with a healthcare provider.
Here are some references to articles on the risks of BHT:
The North American Menopause Society (NAMS): “Bioidentical Hormone Therapy.” (https://www.menopause.org/for-women/menopauseflashes/bioidentical-hormone-therapy)
Mayo Clinic: “Bioidentical hormone therapy: Is it safe?” (https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/sexual-health/expert-answers/bioidentical-hormone-therapy/faq-20057895)
Harvard Health Publishing: “Bioidentical hormones: Are they safer?” (https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/bioidentical-hormones-are-they-safer)
The timeline for the onset of BHRT effects varies depending on the individual and the specific form of BHRT being used. Some women may start to see improvement in symptoms within a few weeks, while others may take several months to see results.
The side effects associated with BHRT are typically mild and short-term in nature such as headaches or bloating which should resolve within a few days after starting treatment.
