Bioidentical hormone replacement is the safest way to restore your hormone levels. Like normal hormone replacement therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement can completely relieve symptoms of menopause. However, bioidentical hormones are much safer and have much lower associated risks. Bioidentical hormones are safer because they are biologically identical to the hormones already in the human body. You are warmly invited to learn how to get started with bioidentical hormone replacement.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement?
It is the process of returning lost hormones to the body. As men and women age, they begin to stop naturally producing these much-needed hormones. This therapy returns the hormones to the body, providing the same benefits as the naturally-occurring hormones.
There are several different types of hormones available. Generally speaking, there is male hormone therapy and female hormone therapy. The male treatments generally only consist of testosterone; the female treatments are estrogen. Sometimes, the estrogen is mixed with other hormones. It all depends on the unique case.
Why Choose Bioidentical?
Synthetic hormones are seen as dangerous by many medical experts. Irregular change in heart function, among other things, is a possibility with the synthetic type. Bioidentical hormones don’t have this problem. They are created from natural sources. This means they are naturally-occurring and mimic human hormones completely. The fact that synthetic hormones are made by man means they don’t match exactly.
Before deciding to go with this treatment option, you should consider the delivery methods. There are actually a few. Creams, pellets, and troches are all possibilities. One of the most popular delivery methods is pellets, which release the hormones on a timed interval, eliminating the need for constant doctor visits.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Bioidentical Hormones?
Anyone who has a genuine hormone deficiency is a good candidate for the therapy. Women who are suffering from menopause and men who are suffering from andropause are ideal candidates for the therapy. Another group of people who will consider hormone replacement therapy are dealing with certain medication conditions.
You will need to be examined by a qualified professional to determine if you have a hormone deficiency. The best way to learn more is to seek a consultation with us.
