Aging, disease and lifestyle factors can contribute to changes in the body that affect normal hormone levels. When the delicate balance of natural hormones is disturbed, you experience unwelcome symptoms of hormonal imbalance due to low testosterone, estrogen levels, or progesterone deficiencies—just to name a few. These symptoms can be a result aging or diagnosed conditions such as perimenopause, menopause, andropause, thyroid disorder, and adrenal fatigue. Find out if you would benefit with bioidentical hormone treatment from an expert hormone doctor at Vida MedSpa.
Conventional hormone replacement therapy (HRT) utilizes synthetic hormones in an attempt to combat symptoms of hormonal imbalance. However, with synthetic hormones comes risk. Synthetic hormones are chemically-based, human-made hormones which are often patented. This results in uniform treatment for patients and has been linked to cancer and heart disease.
On the other side of the spectrum is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Bioidentical hormones are the natural solution to restoring low levels of vital hormones in both men and women. Bioidentical hormones are natural hormones derived from plant sources and designed to be structurally identical to the hormones produced by the human body. Because bioidentical hormones are natural, they pose no health risk and operate on the same cellular level as natural hormones.
Low testosterone in men is the most common form of hormone imbalance experienced by a male. Symptoms of low testosterone in men can manifest in a visible manner, affecting mood, weight and sexual performance, seemingly all at once. This is often referred to as andropause or “the male menopause.” However, testosterone levels in men do fluctuate, and men can experience gradual changes as a result such as increased irritability, loss of strength and muscle, and a reduction in ambition, focus, and stamina. These symptoms are often brushed aside as signs of aging, but can easily be corrected with a comprehensive hormone treatment plan that incorporates bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Women face a number of hormonal fluctuations throughout the lifespan—menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopause, and menopause—each of which can impact the delicate balance of hormonal harmony. For this reason, women benefit from monitoring their natural hormone levels as early as age 30 to establish a healthy baseline and maintain balance. Low testosterone levels in women (and even high testosterone levels in women!) have been shown to affect a multitude of other natural hormones in the body. Through lifestyle changes and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, thyroid symptoms in women, testosterone levels in women, and other hormone imbalances in women can be alleviated.
