One of the effects of aging that both men and women encounter is hormone imbalance. As you get older, hormones once produced by your body decrease. This can cause a number of problems, including mood changes and changes in libido, among others. While synthetic hormone replacements are frequently prescribed, there are a lot of advantages to using bioidentical hormone therapy instead.
Bioidentical hormones are all natural rather than being manufactured in a lab. This makes it much safer to use than synthetic hormone treatments. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and animals that have the same hormones in a way that is identical to the hormones the human body produces naturally.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is more reliable and effective than synthetic treatments. Because the hormones you are taking are identical to those produced by your body, these treatments are absorbed and utilized by the body much more effectively than synthetic hormones. You can often produce the same effects as synthetic with a much lower dose of bioidentical hormones.
Bioidentical hormones can be customized in dose and treatment method based on your personal and unique needs. When you come to our offices, we will do a complete examination and lab workup to determine your particular needs. We can then use those results to customize the dose, determine which therapies will be most effective, and change the route of administration if needed. Contact us today for an appointment.
