Would You Benefit from Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
In order to keep our bodies in top-notch form we need to produce hormones. But, as we get older the way our bodies produce hormones changes and slows down allowing for aging and unwanted consequences. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is a modern therapy designed to negate unwanted consequences of hormonal imbalance.
Once we enter our late twenties our bodies start to slow down certain production of hormones. When this occurs our entire hormonal system becomes unbalanced. For our hormones to affect our body correctly they must be in balance. Frequently a deficiency in the production of one or more hormones creates instability throughout our entire hormonal system.
Women who are going through or have completed menopause is a good example of the effects and changes in the hormonal system. Their production of estrogen and progesterone decreases as they enter and complete menopause. Frequently, discomfort such as insomnia, hot flashes, fatigue and mood swings are related to the side effects of the reduced levels of production of these two hormones.
