Are you like most people these days looking for a healthy way to boost your energy and help you feel like yourself again? These days, being vibrant and lively is an important goal as we get older. Having balanced hormones is a very important part of getting older without feeling. When it comes to hormones we want to make healthy choices that are natural and safe. That’s why at REAL Weight Loss + Wellness, we are recommending Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for our patients.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
As we age, our bodies naturally start to reduce the amount of hormones like testosterone and estrogen they produce. • Hormones such as these are incredibly important to how many areas of your body function – such as your brain, heart, bones, reproductive organs, and more. • When these hormones are out of balance, people can experience a number of different symptoms. • Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a method of restoring the balance of your hormones and aiming to relieve these symptoms, using compounded hormones that are identical in structure to those your body naturally produces. That way, your body recognizes and uses these replacement hormones in exactly the same way it would hormones it produces naturally.
The Importance of Hormone Balance
Most women see a significant drop in estrogen and testosterone during menopause,
while many men may experience a similar phenomenon relating to testosterone, known
as andropause. Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream.
Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes. Because of their
essential role in the body, even the smallest hormonal imbalance can cause side effects
throughout the body.
