Explaining the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormones are crucial to the human body performing at its maximum potential. Contrary to what common knowledge might suggest, hormones have much more to do with the human body than sexual arousal and reproduction. As the human body begins to age, hormone production begins to slow down, and this can lead to memory loss, fatigue, irregular sleep schedule, and can hinder the cycles associated with menstruation. In the past, this process had little chance of slowing down. Times have changed, and now, thanks to BHRT (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy), a solution has been reached.

 What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Unlike the hormones that are naturally created by the human body, bioidentical hormones are artificially created in a laboratory. In normal hormone therapy, the body has trouble disposing of the excess hormones, which can lead to unhealthy buildup. An advantage of bioidentical hormones is your body processes them the same way and disposes of the excess material in the same way. The three main hormones in BHRT therapy are progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone. 

What are Some of the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The process of explaining the benefits of BHRT is best summed up by utilizing an analogy related to eastern philosophy; the yin and yang. The benefits of BHRT can be described as a balance of increase and decrease. For example, the aspects of your life that increase your quality of life, sexual libido, muscle mass, memory, and bone density. On the opposite end of the spectrum, BHRT will decrease several factors that hinder the quality of life. These include weight gain, memory loss, thinning hair, insomnia, and can even reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and certain cardiovascular disease. 

How Does BHRT Work?

There are a variety of ways a doctor will prescribe BHRT. Patches, supplements, and pills are among the most commonly used methods. Many people prefer injecting themselves at home; some physicians have even prescribed gels and creams for those with a low pain threshold. Your physician will work with you to decide which treatment works best.
