ALTHOUGH AGING IS INEVITABLE, LOSS OF HEALTH, AND HAPPINESS ARE NOT.
As menopause approaches, the ovaries produce progesterone and estrogen more slowly, leading to erratic menstrual cycles before they cease entirely. As ovaries permanently stop producing these hormones, other areas of the body continue to produce estradiol, testosterone, and other hormones.
UNBALANCED HORMONES CAUSE :
- Night sweats and hot flashes
- Memory problems
- Decreased motivation
- Weight gain/slower metabolism
- Diminished libido
These and other symptoms occur not only in older women, but in younger women after ovarian removal surgery. Regardless of the cause or time of menopause onset, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps you feel like yourself again.
TESTOSTERONE CAN ALSO HELP WOMEN…
Testosterone may seem like a “man’s hormone,” but women benefit from it as well. With a 30 percent decrease in testosterone during menopause, women experience lower metabolism, decreased muscle tone, and sexual side effects. However, testosterone supplements help women overcome vaginal dryness, regain libido, and enjoy intimate experiences once again.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) has come a long way, leading to safe and effective procedures. When first seeking BHRT, patients receive a comprehensive consultation, including a health and longevity assessment to determine which blend of hormones will yield the best results.
With modern medical technology, physicians can use your body’s unique hormone molecule structures to produce bioidentical hormones. Physicians administer these treatments via a gentle injection or by mouth, incorporating them into a holistic treatment program that includes thorough consultations and consistent monitoring.
Of the myriad BHRT treatment regimens available, one or more will likely serve your needs. However, other medical conditions and their treatments may interact negatively with BHRT. Therefore, full honesty and clinical integrity at Medical Vitality CLinic help patients decide which course of treatment is right for them.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy or BHRT has been a treatment for menopausal and pre-menopausal symptoms for quite some time and more recently public interest and demand has exploded. Suzanne Sommers was the first well known personality promoting BHRT through her books, Ageless, The Sexy Years, Breakthrough and through her many appearances speaking on the subject. She describes how BHRT relieved her menopausal symptoms, increased her energy levels, increased her sexual desire and recaptured her overall zest for life! In actuality, BHRT is a popular therapy not only for women but for men as well. The main hormone panels tested for are:
- Andropause (male menopause)
- Adrenal (fatigue/stress)
- Thyroid (hyper/hypo)
- Growth Hormone
- By balancing and optimizing these hormone levels, patients report an increase in lean muscle mass, decrease in body fat, greater energy and overall zest for life, sharper thinking and memory, greater sexual desire and performance.
