Many women can benefit from bioidentical hormone replacement therapy(BHRT). A woman can be peri- or post menopausal, lacking estrogen and/or progesterone. Surprising to many, women also can be lacking in testosterone as well. Thyroid and adrenal insufficiencies are common medicial problems also.All of these can lead to feelings of fatigue, hot flashes, sleep disturbances, weight gain, mood changes, skin and hair changes, decreased libido and difficulty with memory and concentration.
Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy for women (BHRT) can include replacement of estrogen, progesterone, thyroid hormone and testosterone. Additional supplements may also be required and prescribed as necessary. Combining these regimens with proper nutrition and supervised exercise training, our clients see dramatic improvements in their symptoms and can live a happier, healthier, more youthful life.
Much of the controversial information about estrogen and progesterone therapy comes from studies using a non-bioidentical estrogen derived from horse urine. Many studies suggest that the bioidentical version of estrogen does not carry with it some of these same issues. But instead provide significant health benefits and improve quality of life.
