Conditions Treated with Bioidentical Hormones
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can be used to successfully help treat and alleviate the symptoms of the following conditions:
This is the time in a woman’s life where the transition towards menopause begins, and usually starts in her early 40’s. This can occur earlier, however, and sometimes a woman may not even know that they have entered this stage of their life. An imbalance in hormones can cause mood swings, weight gain, decreased sex drive, and a decreased quality of life. Some women understand the importance of optimal hormonal balance within the body, and start to take control as early as they can. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been used to treat women entering perimenopause to balance the hormones that help relieve her of any symptoms she may have.
This is the stage in a woman’s life when her reproductive organs begin to make less estrogen and progesterone, and her supply of eggs is eventually depleted. During this time, a woman may experience discomfort due to the symptoms brought on by natural menopause. These include hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, loss of libido, and more. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to restore the body’s optimum hormone levels so that women can transition into menopause without discomfort.
Estrogen and progesterone are an important factor in keeping the bone density at a healthy level. These hormones help to keep the body strong, and without the proper balance, the body can feel frail and fragile. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to keep these hormones in balance to help with the symptoms of osteoporosis. This helps women maintain healthy, active lifestyles without having to live day-to-day with cautionary actions, such as not choosing to partake in exercise because of bone fragility.
If you have a hard time sleeping, cannot stay asleep for an entire night, or sleeping aids are not a solution for you, then it may be an imbalance in the hormones within your body. Hormones like progesterone and testosterone help in balancing the body’s functions. Sleep is so important for the body to feel recharged and ready for each day, and not feeling that refreshed feeling can wear out a person. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps to restore those depleted levels of hormones, ultimately allowing the patient to enjoy sleeping once again.
