Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
For the last 60 years Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) involved using synthetic hormones to keep post menopausal women feeling young and forever feminine.
Now, women are turning to bio identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) as a superior form of HRT.Bioidentical hormones are made in a laboratory usually from the components of yams to match exactly the molecular structure of the hormones that were normally made in the ovaries.
The molecular structure of these hormones is indistinguishable from that of natural hormones produced in the body.Bioidentical hormones come in a variety of delivery systems such as cream, BLA tablets, capsules or troches. Bio-identical hormones recently caught mainstream attention in part because of Suzanne Somer’s new book, The Sexy Years.
Typically a successful approach to dealing with a woman’s menopausal symptoms is to begin with laboratory tests of hormone levels called a “hormone panel.” The doctor can then prescribe a precise dosage of bio-identical estrogens, testosterone, progesterone or DHEA that can be made at a
Compounding Pharmacy. This is contrary to HRT treatments that are typically “one size fits all.”BHRT for Men Andropause, also known as the male menopause, is the result of a gradual drop in testosterone which is an androgen, giving the condition its name. In many cases, bio identical hormone replacement therapy can be part of the solution. When men get into their early 30s, they begin losing testosterone at a rate of one to two percent each year.
According to the US Census Bureau, approximately 4-5 million men have symptoms of low testosterone levels and only 5-10% of these men will seek treatment.Testosterone replacement therapy is a treatment for men with low testosterone who want to boost their health and overall well-being. Fortunately, hormone losses and imbalances are easily correctable.
Additionally, men experiencing Andropause who want to get a grip on weight gain, lost libido, fatigue, stress, energy, muscle mass, and body fat are also finding solutions through this type hormone therapy.
