What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

As we age, the production of hormones naturally declines.  For some, this process can have little to no negative effect on their general health.  For others, the effects can be life-altering.  In women, depression, anxiety, mood swings, insomnia, hot flashes weight gain and decreased libido may ensue.  Men may also experience weight gain, lack of stamina and difficulty achieving erections. That is where biomedical hormone replacement therapy may help!

With biomedical hormone replacement therapy, our concierge doctors use natural hormones that are recognized by our bodies as being identical to those hormones (on a cellular level) as what our bodies produce naturally (vs. the synthetic version typically prescribed by most physicians).  These negative symptoms therefore, can be relieved by restoring these hormones and hence our delicate biochemical balance that are controlled by them.

 

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and Aging

As mentioned, hormones are responsible for the control of biochemical balance of the human body. They guide our bodies through the critical stages of our lives, from infancy, puberty, reproduction and eventually old age. In addition for preparing our bodies for fight or flight and reproductive urges, they also are responsible for generating hunger pangs and mood swings. Because they are produced by our cells in miniscule amounts, trace levels can have dramatic results.

We know that a significant part of the aging process involves the diminishing production of hormones, occurring measurably after development, then accelerating into our 50s and 60s.  This can result in chronic diseases and symptoms.  With today’s bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, restoring hormonal balance can not only relieve these symptoms, but modern research indicates that it can also slow down the aging process in some patients and aid in treating diseases related to aging.
