The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Beyond aging, hormones can become unbalanced due to stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition and poor lifestyle choices. Hormones commonly start to decline after age thirty, but we’ve seen low levels in patients in their twenties. Hormone replacement therapy can help a person regain vitality, health, and happiness. The benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy include:
Men and Women: Increased Energy, Balanced Mood, Better Sleep, Fat Loss, Increased Muscle Mass, Increased Vitality, Higher Bone Density, Higher Libido
Men: Reduced Hair Thinning, Improved Erectile Function
Women: Decreased Hot Flashes, Increased Vaginal Lubrication, Increased Skin Elasticity
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are exactly the same as the ones your body makes. Why is that important? Unlike traditional hormone replacements, bioidentical hormones are indistinguishable from the ones produced by your body. Because of that they do not cause side effects and problems that are associated with traditional hormone replacements. Many of the traditional hormone replacements act in a way that are unpredictable and in many studies have been shown to be harmful. For example, the most commonly prescribed traditional estrogen replacement is broken down to a molecule that can damage DNA and enhance cancer development. It can also increase risk of blood clots and stroke. Since the bioidentical hormones act just like the ones in your body, when replaced appropriately, they lead to the benefits listed above.
More than Just Sex Hormones
There is a very complex balance between different hormones in our bodies. Adjusting one hormone can lead to effects in others. At Strong Weight Loss, we do a complete hormonal assessment and replace what your body needs to thrive – not merely survive. We strive for a balance of the adrenal, thyroid, and sex hormones. If sleep and mood are an issue, we can look for abnormalities in melatonin as well as the sex hormones (progesterone plays a vital role in sleep). Difficulty losing weight? Insulin, thyroid and sex hormones may be out of balance.
