Anti-Aging and Bio-identical Hormones
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy has revolutionized anti-aging and preventative medicine, and physicians now understand that having balanced hormones can prevent and reverse the many signs of aging. Bio-identical hormones are identical in molecular and chemical structure to the hormones produced in the human body, and for this reason they can be easily metabolized, recognized, and activated in the body. Their identical nature can also prevent side effects that typically come with other forms of hormone replacement therapy, allowing patients to enjoy the benefits of having balanced hormones without the adverse physical effects.
Previous forms of hormone replacement therapy used hormones that were made from animals or animal urine, which contained hormones that were not identical to the hormones produced in the human body. Non bio-identical hormones have been known to increase the risks of cancer, moods swings, bloating, breast tenderness, and headaches. In the past, the side effects of other hormone therapies were often worse with than the symptoms.
Another positive aspect of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is that it can be dosed according to individual needs. Individualized dosing can ensure that each person gets the specific amount of each hormone that is needed to achieve systemic balance. Past hormone therapies were unable to dose hormones according to specific needs, which meant that each person got the same dosing of each hormone, despite their deficiencies or excesses. Other hormone therapies would cause a woman that was only slightly deficient in estrogen to get the same dose as a woman that was severely deficient in estrogen.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help women and men to overcome imbalances and improve their overall health in non-invasive and natural way. Some of the conditions that can be improved with bio-identical hormone therapy include:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help these conditions and the many symptoms that come with them. Age related conditions, such as menopause and andropause, can also be vastly improved with bio-identical hormones, and symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, muscle atrophy, poor workout performances, low libido, erectile dysfunction, osteoporosis, sleeping issues, mood disorders, weight loss resistance, and fatigue can be reduced or eliminated. Many women and men have been able to greatly improve their quality of life with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
