By bringing your hormones back to optimal levels, we help you improve your energy level, stamina, mental acuity, and sex drive. In addition, hormone optimization therapy also helps you lose weight and build lean muscle mass.
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy or BHRT refers to the administration of bio-identical hormones to restore hormonal balance.
As the name implies, bio-identical hormones are identical to the hormones naturally produced by the body in terms of their structure and functions. These are used to restore optimal levels of a variety of hormones, including estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, and thyroid hormones.
Benefits of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Natural hormone production begins during puberty and reaches a peak during 20s and early 30s. However, as we age, hormonal levels continue to decline, causing us to experience a number of symptoms.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy focuses on the optimization of hormonal levels to prevent the signs and symptoms of aging. It offers a number of benefits which include:
- Healthier bones and reduced risk of osteoporosis
- Improved mental acuity, focus, and concentration
- Increased energy levels
- Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease
- Reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases
- Faster metabolism that promotes weight loss
- Decrease in body fat and increased lean body mass
- Better emotional stability and relief from anxiety and irritability
- Increased libido and sexual drive
What Makes Bio-Identical Hormones Different and Better than Synthetic Hormones?
The primary difference between synthetic hormones and bio-identical hormones is their chemical makeup. Bio-identical hormones are specially designed to replicate the structure of natural hormones produced by the body. As a result, they bind to receptors the same way as natural hormones do and produce the same effects.
Synthetic hormones, on the other hand, are not identical to natural hormones in structural. Therefore, they do not act the same way as natural hormones and may produce different side effects and health issues.
