Men And Women Age Gracefully With Bioidentical Hormones

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is used in women to treat the symptoms of menopause, perimenopause and postmenopause. When looking to treat menopausal symptoms, you can choose to take either synthetic hormones or bioidentical hormones, although the synthetic hormones do not mimic the same structure that occurs naturally in your body. In men, these hormones increase energy and promote sexual funciton and vitality. Bioidentical hormones are found naturally in the body, and when taken in supplemental doses they support anti-aging and can improve your quality of life.

If you are interested in getting bioidentical hormone therapy, you'll have to meet with a physician first. At our medical spa, physician Marsha Davis M.D. will perform a series of tests before administering a set dose of hormones.

Benefits of Taking Bioidentical Hormones

In women, bioidentical hormones are a very cost-effective way to treat your menopause symptoms. Once the physician has determined the levels of your hormonal decline, you will be instructed to take a precise amount of estradiol each month. After 18 to 28 days, the physician will provide you with a static dose of progesterone. This balance of hormones will mimic what naturally occurs in your body before you become menopausal.

In men, the bioidentical hormones help with a variety of symptoms that arise because of the testosterone imbalance. Things like thinnging hair, erectile dysfunction, muscle loss and depression can all be treated with hormone therapy. 

The great thing about bioidentical hormones is that they can be taken a number of ways; either through a cream, pill or suppository.

Side Effects of Bioidentical Hormones

Side effects of bioidentical hormones differ between patients, but most people will experience nausea and some water retention. It is very important you receive your bioidentical hormones from a credited sources, such as a medical spa or certified physician, because there are many people who receive counterfeit hormones that can be very dangerous to their health.
