Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy has long been used to treat a variety of medical conditions including hormone imbalance, severe menopause symptoms, and others. It is also used when hormone-producing organs or glands have to be removed due to other medical conditions.
Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy has a number of benefits, and men and women can both benefit from bio-identical hormone supplementation.
Why Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
In the past there was significant concern about how the hormones introduced to the body would affect long-term health. These hormone replacement therapies caused other undesirable side effects, but when using the latest versions, known as “Bio-identical Hormones” these symptoms are eliminated. Bio-identical hormones are identical on a molecular level with the hormones produced by the body. This means that when they are properly introduced, the body will respond just as if they were naturally made, eliminating any unwanted side effects.
A recent double blind study involving bio-identical hormones found that they can help maintain a more natural level of a variety of hormones as people age. This can help reduce cardiovascular disease and maintain bone density through menopause and beyond. This type of advanced hormone therapy is believed to have many other positive benefits, and additional clinical studies are ongoing. Choosing bio-identical hormones over chemically altered or synthesized hormones will help maintain the benefits of hormone therapy while eliminating virtually all unwanted side effects.
Some Benefits Of Biodentical HRT
Estrogen and testosterone influence the way bones absorb calcium, and if the bones cannot properly absorb calcium, they can become weak, which may lead to osteoporosis. Balanced hormones can regulate calcium absorption to keep bones healthy and strong.
Muscle influences the burning of calories. When muscle is abundant, fat storages are tapped into in order to sustain energy. If estrogen is low for either a man or woman, the body attempts to conserve estrogen by storing extra fat. This is because fat contains estrogen, and regular amounts of estrogen can decrease fat storage.
The body’s internal clock sets sleeping patterns and is located in the hypothalamus. Hormonal imbalances can interfere with signals and create disturbed sleeping patterns. Many people experiencing hormonal imbalances may have issues falling or staying asleep, which can lead to exhaust. Balanced hormones can help to regulate sleeping patterns.
Improved Sexual Function
If hormones pertaining to reproduction are decreased, then desire for sexual activity is also decreased. When hormones are restored to normal levels, libido is boosted. In women, after the body decreases hormone production and closes down reproduction, it assumes there will be no further reason for sexual activity. This can cause vaginal dryness, and by supplementing the deficient hormones, vaginal dryness can be relieved. In men, erectile dysfunction may improve because testosterone directly affects reproductive functions, and sexual functions may be decreased with a testosterone deficiency.
Reduced Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
The hypothalamus is the body’s internal thermometer. Hormonal deficiencies can cause signals going to the hypothalamus to get crossed, and this can result in hot flashes and night sweats.
These are a few of the benefits that can be obtained with bio-identical hormone therapy that can help a person reclaim health, happiness, and vitality.
