If you're struggling with hormone-related issues like weight gain, mood swings, and low energy levels, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may be worth considering. Here are three reasons why:
If you're dealing with any of the above issues, talk to your doctor about whether BHRT could be right for you.
It can be incredibly discouraging when you try to alleviate symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and andropause by making lifestyle changes such as reducing stress, exercising more or eating healthier… but the symptoms just won’t go away.
In this case, it may be helpful to consider BHRT, which involves boosting insufficient hormone levels back to optimal levels.
When you are experiencing hormone-related physical and mental symptoms that cannot be helped by lifestyle changes, BHRT might provide great relief for symptoms such as weight gain, loss of energy, low libido, hot flashes and night sweats.
In perimenopause, which can start as early as your 30’s, major changes occur to your body, energy levels, and hormone levels – putting you on a mental rollercoaster with mood swings, memory problems, depression, brain fog, and anxiety.
Thankfully, BHRT provides a way for women to manage this transition from perimenopause through menopause. Lifestyle changes and BHRT can help you reclaim hormone balance so you can look and feel amazing.
This is accomplished through personalised treatments, including personalised dosing using compounding, that are tailored according to each individual’s unique needs so as to help best manage their symptoms as they go through this transition.
Hormone balance is important for both men and women as we age. Studies show that BHRT can reduce the risk of certain long-term issues like osteoporosis, heart disease, and cognitive decline that are brought on in part by hormonal deficiencies.
To properly identify if you indeed have a hormone imbalance, it’s key to find a practitioner who understands how to test hormones, has experience with BHRT, and can make all the difference in creating an effective treatment plan.
It is important to find a practitioner that offers support beyond just the treatment of hormone imbalances:
This includes looking at how lifestyle choices such as diet, stress, and environmental toxins can contribute to overall health and hormone levels.
Whether your goal is to improve how you feel or how you look, lifestyle modifications can have a huge impact on how your body looks and functions. With the right guidance from a committed practitioner, small changes can lead to a marked improvement in how you experience hormone imbalances.
