Some of the benefits of this therapy may include:
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.
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.
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.
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.
