Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormonal imbalances can affect both men and women at any age. Unstable hormone levels in both sexes can lead to chronic problems and side effects that disrupt daily life. These symptoms include hot flashes, weight gain, migraines, depression, insomnia, loss of libido, and fatigue. If an individual suffers from these symptoms hormone imbalances may be to blame.  Balancing hormones using Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can be the key to getting an individual back to the best form of themselves.

Men

These conditions affect millions of individuals. As the number of individuals seeking hormone-related treatment has grown, so has the mass production of pills, patches and creams by the drug industry. However, each person’s body is different and has its own unique needs, but commercially manufactured products tend to be “one-size-fits-all,” and do not always account for the differences between individuals.

FAQS

Perimenopause

Perimenopause starts a few years before “official” menopause, and signals the time when the ovaries gradually start to produce less estrogen. It typically begins in the 40s,

Menopause

Menopause occurs when a woman’s last period occurs, typically at an average age of 51 years.

Postmenopause

Menopause ends one full year after the last period , indicating the postmenopausal stage. Symptoms of this stage normally decline within a few years, but can take 10 years or more.

As women get close to menopause, ovaries make less estrogen and progesterone, the two hormones that control the monthly cycle. These hormones also affect the health of bones, heart, and vagina.

Replacing these hormones with BHRT can ease symptoms of menopause and rejuviate a better quality of life.

Compounded hormone therapy uses bioidentical hormones that are derived from plant sources to identically match the structure of human hormones, making it a much more natural approach to hormone therapy. Bioidentical hormones are estradiol, estriol, and progesterone. Any addition to these words is considered a non-bioidentical product.

Non-compounded hormone therapy does not usually involve bioidentical hormones. Things like Premarin (derived from the pregnant horses), ethinyl estradiol, progestins (norethindrone, medroxyprogesterone, and a host of others) are all not bioidentical and made only to work on specific receptors. The body has hormone receptors all over, when these non-bioidentical hormones attach to receptors other than where they were studied to work, there is no telling what havoc they will cause. If you get your hormones in a small 21 or 28 day pack, you can almost be sure that you are not receiving all bioidentical hormones.

HRT can’t be described as safe or unsafe. Its effects vary depending on the types of hormone used, the form in which it is given (pills, or patches and gels), and the timing of first use (around menopause, or later). The safety of HRT can also depend on other things, such as body mass index. Factor in a woman’s family/personal medical history, individual experience of menopausal symptoms, and it is clear that one size DOES NOT fit all.
