With the popularity that bioidentical hormone treatment (BHRT) has received over the past several years, many men and women find themselves asking if hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is right for them.
HRT is a powerful antiaging method that can be customized to each patient, ensuring that every individual receives the optimal dosage of the progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen hormone. Patients that are searching for ways to fight the signs and symptoms of aging may find that HRT is the solution they have been looking for.
So, are hormones right for you?
We believe that you should ask only about bioidentical hormones. Bioidentical hormones are hormones that are the exact chemical structure as the hormones that your body made more of when you were younger.
However, at one point or another, everyone begins to age. Aging brings on menopause (the decline in estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone hormones for women) and andropause (the decline in testosterone for men). While HRT cannot stop time, it can help you to stop feeling the side effects of aging.
Here are a few of the leading benefits of HRT!
- Improved overall quality of life. Both men and women that participate in HRT to combat hormone imbalance often attain an improved quality of life, which includes enhanced quality of sleep and an overall improved mental outlook on life. HRT can also help relieve the feelings of minor depression caused by hormonal imbalances and improve short term memory.
- Relief from menopausal symptoms. Women that are experiencing symptoms of menopause often benefit from HRT therapy, which can provide relief from hot flashes, increase sexual desire, and slow down the aging process.
- Relief from andropausal symptoms. Men who are experiencing andropause can often benefit from increase sexual desire, the ability to maintain muscle mass, and the possibility of a decreased waist circumference.
- Prevent serious diseases. HRT has been shown to help prevent the onset of a number of serious health conditions; including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and can even reduce your risk of developing colon cancer.
