Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
What is BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
A decline in hormone production is a natural part of aging in both men and women. Although it typically starts in the 30’s, most people don’t feel the full effects of declining hormones until they are closer to middle age. For men, the first indication is often problems with sexual performance and feeling like they have no ambition. Women, who are typically more in-tune with their bodies due to the monthly menstrual cycle, may complain of mood swings, weight gain, and a lowered sex drive. When significant health concerns arose for women using synthetic hormone replacement therapy, millions stopped taking it. Patients and providers alike began to search for alternatives. Countless women and men have now made the switch to BioIdentical Hormone Therapy (BHRT). Regardless of your age, gender, or specific symptoms, you can find relief with BHRT!
Hormones are chemical messengers that are secreted directly into the blood, which carries them to organs and tissues of the body to exert their functions. There are many different types of hormones within the body that act on the different processes and functions; therefore, making hormones essential for both life and as a component towards one’s quality of life.
While most people only associate a decline in hormone production with the symptoms they are able to experience, research has proven that the loss of hormonal balance has also been associated with an increase in: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, osteoporosis, thyroid conditions, many cancers and a host of other medical conditions.
BioIdentical hormones are specifically compounded to identically match what your body once produced. The similar cellular structure also means that the compounds are metabolized both faster and easier by the body. Essentially, we are attempting to recreate the body's hormone levels from an earlier age. No horse urine, no fillers -- just pure and simple. It is important to note that BHRT is not one size fits all; it is carefully individualized for each patient. When done properly, BHRT is easy, safe, and effective for patients.
At Bloom Wellness & Aesthetics, our focus is not simply on prescribing, but on combining the appropriate dosage and delivery method to balance the patient’s hormones. Our primary focus is on symptomology rather than the standardized lab ranges.
