Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) vs. Conventional Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Firstly, let’s answer the question… what are hormones? Hormones are the important chemical messengers in the body. While traveling to the tissues and organs through the bloodstream, hormones regulate sexual function, mood, metabolism, growth, and development. Even small changes in natural hormone levels can have significant outcomes.
When these powerful hormones become unstable, frequently due to the natural aging process, an accumulation of issues can arise. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a successful and established resolution to hormone imbalance.
Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is based on the practice of using synthetic hormones. Synthetic hormones, such as estradiol, progestin, nandrolone, and methyl, are manmade, chemically-created hormones that are habitually patented. Therefore, treatment for all patients is indistinguishable and not tailored to their specific needs.
On the other side of the scale are bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones come from natural plant sources and created to have the same molecular structure as the natural hormones formed by the body. This identical structure safeguards that bioidentical hormones fit into the body’s receptors faultlessly, initiating the same realistic sequence as endogenous hormones, providing customized hormone treatment results, and lowering the risk of side effects.
Choosing a more natural hormone program such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in comparison to a synthetic hormone replacement therapy offers patients an enhanced overall bioidentical hormone experience with hardly any hostile reactions and only mild side effects. Some of the most apparent benefits of using bioidentical hormones include:
- Better upkeep of muscle mass and strength*
- Boosted mood, concentration, and memory*
- Improved cholesterol levels*
- Amplified libido*
- Decrease in hot flashes and vaginal dryness*
- Reduced osteoporosis and restoration of bone strength*
- Lowered risk of Alzheimer’s disease*
- Relief from insomnia*
What Causes Hormonal Imbalance?
When hormone levels grow to be imbalanced, either due to the aging process, toxic contacts, or a health condition, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a practical solution for replacing hormones that the body is not able to produce on its own.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
Women who have reached menopause or perimenopause often deal with a multitude of uncomfortable symptoms linked to hormone imbalance. Throughout these transitions, levels can alter substantially leading to high testosterone in women (low testosterone in women too!), estrogen control, progesterone deficiencies, and thyroid symptoms in women can appear as well. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can reestablish natural hormone balance and women can expect some very confident and dramatic benefits such as:
- Relief from Menopause symptoms*
- Reduced hot flashes*
- Boosted libido*
- Improved brain function*
- Reduced risk of osteoporosis*
- Improved skin and muscle tone*
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Amid men, the symptoms of hormone imbalance regularly occur slowly and are typically dismissed as signs of aging. The most shared form of hormone deficiency is low testosterone in men. Symptoms of low testosterone in men can develop as hair loss, low libido, muscle loss, and fatigue. These signs of low testosterone instigate around midlife, robbing men of liveliness and impairing health. Men are mainly affected by declines in testosterone that are an outcome of the aging process, but men similarly experience symptoms due to fluctuations in cortisol or thyroid hormones. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy presents men the opportunity to restore natural hormone levels and discover numerous health and quality of life benefits, including:
- Decreased risk of heart disease and stroke*
- Enhanced desire for sex*
- Increased lean muscle and muscle strength*
- Clearer focus and concentration*
- Improved cognitive function*
- Stabilized moods*
