Men and women across the U.S. who experience the detrimental effects of hormone imbalances face this glaring question: What is BHRT all about? The answer for many who have tried it is simple: safe, easy hormonal re-balancing for a better life.
Why Are Your Hormones So Important?
Your hormones are chemical messengers that travel through your bloodstream and influence almost every aspect of your body, including your physical and mental health.
When certain hormone levels are low, you can experience uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous side effects. Even if you are a woman, for instance, low testosterone levels can lead to conditions such as osteoporosis.
Testosterone is vital for maintaining muscle mass and bone density. When your body produces too little of this hormone, you lose lots of bone and muscle, leaving you more susceptible to breaks and fractures.
Estrogen is also vital for protecting your bones, preventing heart disease, and stabilizing your mood by boosting serotonin production. Serotonin is responsible for feelings of happiness and well-being.
When men and women experience low levels of either hormone, it can lead to:
- Loss of sex drive
- Loss of muscle mass
- Loss of bone mass
- Higher risk for cardiovascular disease
- Unexplained weight gain
- Mood swings
- Hot flashes
Your hormone levels often fluctuate more as you get older, which is why you may experience these symptoms if you are going through menopause or andropause.
What is BHRT?
BHRT stands for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Your specialist will create a small incision in your skin and insert bioidentical hormone pellets underneath. These pellets are about the size of a grain rice so they are fairly small. While small, they can produce powerful alleviating effects in as little as a day.
However, your body is unique and so are your reactions. It may take you more or less time to experience relief than it takes someone else. Naturally, your body needs some time to adapt to any treatment. Your BHRT practitioner will likely adjust your doses in the beginning and after periods of high stress.
Why Choose Bioidentical Hormones?
As the name suggests, bioidentical hormones are identical to the hormones your body naturally produces. Their chemical structures are exactly the same, meaning your body is less likely to react adversely to your BHRT treatment.
Many have tried traditional HRT treatments and found that they felt worse or experienced no changes in their health at all. If you can relate, BHRT might be right for you.
