BHRT (BIO IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY)
What is bHRT- Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio Identical Hormones are all-natural – non synthetic – hormones that are derived from a plant molecule called “diosgenin” found in wild yam and soy. These naturally occurring hormones are then compounded in a laboratory to be identical to the naturally produced hormones in your body. This compounding lab process ensures that the hormones have the exact molecular structure so they can attach to the cell receptor site and perform the same functions as the hormones in your body.
What Do Hormones Do?
Your body makes hormones everyday, which are chemical messengers responsible for signaling thousands of functions daily within your body that are necessary for health, healing and vitality.. Hormones are primarily derived from cholesterol molecules that serve to regulate cellular metabolism, growth and repair.
When hormone production is optimal and levels are balanced, you feel great. This is when your body has plenty of energy and a clear brain. When your hormones are in optimal balance you handle stress well, have sexual desire and you find it easy to maintain a healthy weight.
As we age into our 30’s and beyond, hormone levels naturally decline. Lifestyle factors such as stress, poor nutrition, synthetic birth control, toxic burden, lack of sleep and exercise are just a few key factors that accelerate the decline in hormones leaving you feeling tired, moody, anxious, foggy, with a low libido and struggling to lose weight.
How Can I Tell if My Hormones are Out of Balance?
If your hormones are in balance, they will decline naturally, causing little to no symptoms. If however your hormones are declining rapidly or if they are naturally out of balance brought on by stress, nicotine use, high blood pressure, cholesterol medication, poor diet, poor sleep and/ or lack of exercise, you will begin to experience signs and symptoms such as:
- Low Libido
- Hair Thinning or Loss
- Hot Flashes
- Night or Day Sweats
- Mood Swings
- Loss of Memory
- Weight Gain
- Restless Sleep
- Foggy Brain
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Vaginal Dryness
- Breast Tenderness
- Muscle Pain
If you are experiencing 2 or more of these symptoms, this is a sign that your hormones may be out of balance. The longer and more severe the symptoms occur, the greater the imbalance and should not go unchecked. Hormone balance is vital to peak aging and optimized health.
