BHRT not only helps women age well, it also it helps prevent many diseases attributed to aging such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, muscle wasting, gynecological problems, Alzheimer’s disease dementia, memory loss, and even some cancers.
Maintaining the proper balance of hormones is essential to good health for both women and men. Hormone levels are affected by quality of sleep, diet, stress, exercise, medications, as well as the environment. Hormones play a major role in the life of any woman, and an imbalance can start at any age. In younger women poor nutrition, emotional stress, overuse of alcohol, birth control pills, and early onset of menopause can lead to hormonal imbalances. In mature women, perimenopause and menopause are the most common causes of uncomfortable hormone related symptoms.
Sometimes hormonal imbalance can be improved by making healthy lifestyle changes and using natural therapies. But a personalized bioidentical hormone therapy program may be required for optimal, lasting results in many women.
Bioidentical hormones work so well for women because they have the same molecular structure as natural hormones do, and they are made using only natural ingredients. BHRT combinations and dosages are customized to match each unique patient’s needs. Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that must be prescribed, which is why it is important to undergo a comprehensive individual medical risk assessment before your doctor can determine a treatment plan. On-going care and blood work is important to ensure individualized treatment is optimized and working within safe limits.
