Hormone insufficiency is a major role in the process of aging. From conception, hormones serve as a messenger from the brain communicating to the body how to function. A decrease in the production of hormones starts around middle-age and then continues in a linear fashion until old age. It is now known that age-related deterioration can be delayed and physical and overall function of the body can improve with hormone replacement therapy.

Biodentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can replace the hormones that the body loses. For example, progesterone, testosterone, estrogen, and other hormones can be replaced with hormones biodentical in nature to those that are lost. Biodentical hormones mimic the same function and structure of the hormones from the body. Biodentical hormones are natural and derived from plant sources. They help both men and women rebalance hormone levels in their bodies naturally. Synthetic hormones, however, do not mimic the body’s natural hormones. These synthetic hormones simply turn off symptoms instead of rebalancing hormone levels. This may lead to many unwanted and harmful side effects.

Biodentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can often alleviate symptoms of hormone imbalance and deficiencies that may occur at any stage of life after puberty. Biodentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is used primarily to support hormone balance in both women and men after menopause or andropause, when estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone decline. When the body ages it loses chemical substances that were once natural and common and throws the body out of alignment. As hormones change and become imbalanced, fluctuations in menopause and andropause may cause the following:

  • Night Sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Weight gain
  • Mood Swings
  • Fatigue
  • Hair thinning
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of sex drive

The main goal of Biodentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is to put hormones back into their natural alignment and minimize these effects of aging.
