Conditions Treated With Bio-identical Hormones
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses hormones that are identical in molecular and chemical structure to the hormones produced in the human body, and these hormones are usually synthesized from soy or yam products. It has been widely used to treat numerous syndromes in men and women that appear with aging. As aging occurs, numerous hormones in the body begin to decline, which can lead to a series of disorders.
In women, the most common age related disorders are perimenopause and menopause. Perimenopause is the time that occurs before menopause, and it begins when ovarian hormones begin to decline. Usually, this transitional phase lasts from three to seven years, and it brings on symptoms that include irregular periods, menstrual disorders, acne, migraines, increased PMS, fatigue, and weight gain.
The transition into menopause is complete when a woman has not had a menstrual period for twelve consecutive months. This phase marks the end of reproduction, and the ovaries are no longer able to produce a sufficient amount of hormones. During menopause, women can experience even more symptoms due to hormone decline, which can include hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, low libido, mood changes, and thinning bones.
In men, age related hormone decline usually happens in the mid to late forties or early fifties, and it occurs when male hormones are not being produced in adequate supply. This phase is known as andropause, and it has been known to cause symptoms that include insomnia, muscle atrophy, low libido, anxiety, depression, fatigue, erectile dysfunction, thinning hair, metabolic syndrome, and increased abdominal fat.
Adrenal fatigue is a stress related syndrome that causes essential sex hormones to be eaten away and made into cortisol, which is a hormone that counteracts the effects of stress. When the adrenal glands are forced to excrete high levels of cortisol for an extended period of time, they can wear out, and it can force the adrenals to convert the materials needed to produce other hormones into cortisol. Common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include intolerance to stress, difficulty getting up in the morning, depression, craving salty or sweet foods, mental and physical fatigue, and feeling burned out.
Thyroid Disorders can also be helped with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. A lack of thyroid hormone production can lead to hypothyroidism, which can cause symptoms that include sudden weight gain, thinning hair, intolerance to cold, depression, and irregular periods to occur. Excessive thyroid hormone production causes hyperthyroidism, which can cause symptoms of a faster heart rate, increased bowel movements, sudden weight gain, intolerance to heat, and nervousness. Because the treatment for hyperthyroidism usually involves shutting down production of thyroid hormone all together, it ends up causing a thyroid hormone deficit, which can still be helped with BHRT.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is another syndrome that can be improved with balancing hormones, and this is because many essential hormones reduce inflammation and improve immune function. CFS is thought to be an autoimmune condition, which causes a person to feel fatigued for more than 24 hours after performing a small mental or physical task. Other symptoms can include body aches, chronic sore throat, depression, insomnia, headaches, and general malaise.
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can help to improve or eliminate these conditions and help men and women regain vitality. Thousands of men and women have overcome their health challenges by balancing hormones in a safe and effective manner with bio-identical hormone replacement.
