The Trouble With Aging
Hormones are chemical messengers sent out by our brains to tell the rest of our body how to function. Having the right balance of hormones is essential to every aspect of our health. As we get older, our hormone production slows down, bringing about signs of aging, both in how we look and how we feel. If we can restore the levels of hormones in our bodies to a natural balance, we can recapture our youthful energy levels and see our bodies functioning in prime condition.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone replacement therapy has been around for quite some time, and does offer some relief for the symptoms of hormone decline. The replacement hormones that medical professionals have been using in the past closely meet our bodies’ needs, but they aren’t an exact match. Bioidentical replacement hormones are engineered to have the exact same molecular structure as those found naturally in our bodies. This allows our bodies to utilize these hormones to achieve an optimum state of overall health.
Bioidentical vs. Non-Bioidentical
Bioidentical hormones are able to achieve what their non-bioidentical counterparts can’t in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. Here are some of the things that bioidentical hormones can do, that non-bioidentical hormones can’t:
- Identical chemical structure to human hormones
- Have a known effect on all bodily tissues
- Heart healthy
- Are an exact match for chemical receptors in the body
- Have very few side effects
- Do not increase the blood’s clotting factor
Many of the signs of aging are evidence that our hormones are out of balance. These symptoms begin cropping up as early as our 30s, and only get worse from there. The good news is that these symptoms can be easily reversed with the help of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Some of the common signs of aging that can be treated with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy include:
- Constant fatigue
- Trouble concentrating
- Loss of elasticity of the skin
- Loss of bone density
- Decreased sex drive
- Loss of muscle tone
If you’re experiencing some or all of these signs of aging, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy can help!
