When our body chemistry is off-balance, so are we. Our hormones play a huge roll in the way our bodies function and feel on a daily basis. It’s no wonder that as we age we start to feel a little less great than we used to. However, there’s a solution to getting your body back in balance. Let’s talk about all-natural hormone replacement therapies and if they’re a good option for you.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a special type of all-natural hormone replacement treatment that works for both men and women. BHRT comes in many different forms, including pills, patches, creams, gels, and injections. Dr. Imtiaz always suggests getting the type of replacement therapy that you feel is easiest to administer and remember for yourself. BHRT is easily absorbed and processed by the body for an easy and smooth transition back to feeling your best.
What is the difference between HRT and Bioidentical Hormones?
What makes BHRT different from traditional HRT is how the hormones are made. Bioidentical hormones are chemically identical to the hormones our bodies produce naturally. This is because they’re made from plant-based estrogens, rather than the synthetic or animal-based hormones that go into traditional hormone therapy treatments. BHRT users support bioidentical hormones for being safer and more natural than their synthetic and animal-based counterparts.
What are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
There are many different benefits to starting BHRT. Some of the most common and beneficial effects of BHRT include improving moderate to severe:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood changes
- Memory loss
- Weight gain
- Disrupted sleep
- Sexual dysfunction
- Anxiety and depression
