Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy
Learn about the anti-aging and therapeutic effects of this natural treatment
Bioidentical hormone therapy, which uses the same hormones that are produced in the human body, is a safe, effective treatment for fatigue, weight gain, depression, and many other conditions associated with hormone deficiencies.
One of the hallmarks of aging is a decline in hormone levels. Production of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, DHEA, melatonin, human growth hormone, and other hormones tapers off after we reach our 20s and 30s. And many experts agree that age-related hormone deficiencies contribute to the signs and symptoms of aging.
How Do Bioidentical Hormones Work?
Bioidentical hormones help restore your hormone levels to what they were in your prime, so you regain your health and vitality. They are a safe, natural alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy that many doctors prescribe to their patients—such as women who are going through menopause.
What Does Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Entail?
After a blood test to diagnose any hormonal deficiencies, you receive an individualized program that could include one or more of several bioidentical hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid, human growth hormone, melatonin, DHEA, and adrenal hormones.
Bioidentical hormones require a prescription and are available through compounding pharmacies. The best part about bioidentical hormones is they come in a variety of doses, combinations, and delivery systems. That means you receive a personalized prescription designed for your unique individual needs.
What Conditions Is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Good For?
Bioidentical hormone therapy treats a wide range of conditions that includes, but isn’t limited to:
Dry skin and hair
Loss of muscle mass
