Managing the symptoms of menopause can be tough and it may seem like you will never get the “old you” back. If this sounds like you don’t give up hope – bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a safe and effective treatment option that can help you get back to being you.
Bio-identical hormones can help treat a host of symptoms associated with menopause, including night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, decreased sex drive, weight gain and hair loss. These symptoms are caused in part by a decline in the production of female hormones. Hormone therapy replaces these depleted hormones, which in turn helps improve health and quality of life.
Female hormone therapy is also beneficial in the treatment of other issues like premenstrual syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome and infertility. It is shown to bring a 65% decrease in colorectal cancer and 70% protection against hip fractures, as well as improved mental and bladder function. Other possible benefits include protection from osteoporosis, a decrease in wrinkles and a reduction in the risks of heart disease.
Unlike synthetic hormones, bio-identical hormones are altered to match molecule for molecule the chemical formula of hormones produced naturally in the body. Bio-identical hormones are made using compounds extracted from plants like wild yams and soybeans. They are usually administered through creams, gels, patches and pellets imbedded in the skin.
Menopausal women suffering from severe symptoms should consider bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. To explore this treatment option call (972) 566-7872 to set up an appointment.
