Do you feel like your energy is low? Do you have trouble sleeping through the night? Are your mood swings out of control? If so, it could be signs that you need hormone replacement therapy. Hormone optimization or balance therapy can help give your body a boost and improve overall health.
There are many signs that indicate when it’s time to seek hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is one of the latest innovations in medicine to not only restore hormones to a proper balance but help you live your life comfortably.
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormones that have been chemically created in laboratories can be used by both men and women when their hormone levels drop or become unbalanced. These chemicals mimic those produced naturally by our bodies.
This includes hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help with thyroid disorders like insulin resistance and adrenal problems like fibromyalgia.
Bioidentical hormones have the chemical and molecular structure of those that are produced naturally by your body. These differ from other lab-made hormone replacements, which work to mimic natural estrogen receptors in order to make them more reactive. As a result, it is difficult for your body to tell the difference between bioidentical medications and ones made with ingredients that were manufactured outside of you!
Why Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is Important
Your body’s hormones control most of your basic bodily functions. They serve as an internal communication system between cells throughout the body. Hormones coordinate everything from digestion and growth to appetite, immune function, mood, libido, etc., so when they are out of balance it has a big impact on health/well being
What are the Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a solution for men and women who are looking to achieve a greater quality of life.
This treatment provides many benefits, such as:
- Stronger sex drive
- Better mental clarity
- Decreased anxiety symptoms during the day
- Increased sense of wellbeing
- Better quality sleep
- Fewer hot flashes or night sweats
- Improves your ability to lose fat
- Build muscle
- Stimulates hair growth
There is a misconception that hormone replacement therapy only applies to women going through or approaching menopause. But, in reality, this treatment could be beneficial for both genders experiencing symptoms of aging from physical and mental/emotional perspectives.
What are Signs You Could Benefit from Bioidentical Therapy?
One of the most common signs that you need bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is when your irritability gets so bad it starts to affect other areas of life. Maybe you’re more inclined to get angry in traffic or start a verbal altercation with somebody – but one thing’s for sure, imbalanced hormones are at least partially responsible.
Other signs you could benefit from bioidentical therapy:
Lack of interest in Hobbies/Activities
One sign of depression that many people experience is the loss of interest in hobbies they used to enjoy. This may sound like a small thing, but it can make you feel disconnected from your life and yourself.
It’s not uncommon for this symptom to be an early indication of hormonal imbalances, which might also cause other symptoms such as fatigue or lackadaisical moods.
Weight gain is one of the most common symptoms that lead women to seek out bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. The increase in weight may be attributed to any number of different factors, including a change in your metabolism or how you metabolize fat.
Weight loss can also occur when hormones become imbalanced- for example with an increased appetite as well as trouble burning stored calories from fat efficiently because hormonal changes decrease metabolic rate and muscle mass.
Loss in Muscle Mass
Losing muscle mass can be detrimental to your health. A pound of muscle is about three times more metabolically active than a pound of fat.
If you are maintaining the same caloric intake and exercise routine, but have an inability for protein metabolism, then this leads to damaged muscles not being replaced with healthy cells which would cause muscle loss over time.
Insomnia is a debilitating condition that can cause severe side effects. It may be caused by hormonal imbalances.
Insomnia, if not dealt with quickly enough, will result in some serious symptoms including depression, weight gain due to chronic fatigue syndrome.
Cognitive decline can occur, which affects your memory and daily thinking process. And of course, other issues associated with sleeplessness such as irritability. Having a sleep disorder means one’s body does not get time for restorative benefits that occur during those precious hours.
