What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy used for?
When we grow older, the creation of hormones in our body naturally reduces. For some people, the mechanism of hormones changing in their body has little to no detrimental effect on their general health. For other individuals, the process of reduction of hormones in their body can alter their lives in the long run. For most women, the negative affects can be: depression, decreased libido, anxiety, weight-gain, mood swings, insomnia and hot flashes. For men, the negative affects can be: difficultly achieving erections, weight gain and lack of stamina. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help men and women with the negative affects that come along with hormone reduction as they age.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BIHRT) utilizes natural hormones that are identified by our bodies as being a duplicate to those hormones on a more cellular level to the hormones our body naturally produces. Negative symptoms like depression, insomnia, mood swings, weight gain and the ones mentioned above can therefore be alleviated by hormone replacement therapy because it can balance that body back to normal.
How does Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy work for weight-loss?
As mentioned above, when men and women age, the production of hormone declines causing side effects like weight loss. By getting Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, we can control the biochemical balance of the body. This can help control weight gain. This method is highly encouraged for weight loss if you have tried diets and exercises and still cannot lose weight.
