Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Q & A

What is Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?

Bioidentical hormone replacement is used to address hormonal imbalances. A blend of hormones is prescribed in medication form and tailored to the specific deficiencies the patient’s body may be experiencing. When prescribing the hormone replacement, bioidentical hormones are used, this means that the compounds contained in the medication have the same chemical and molecular structure as hormones in the human body. In addition to the female hormones of estrogen and progesterone, the prescription can include other hormones including testosterone, DHEA, and adrenal hormones in order to achieve the best balance possible.  

Who Needs Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Environmental and dietary toxins and chemicals which are exposed to people throughout their lifetimes can cause hormonal imbalances as early as age 40. The resulting imbalance can vary and affect a large portion of a person’s hormonal health, including their overall decline. The symptoms of a hormonal imbalance are also varied but can include:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Depression
  • Mood fluctuations
  • Memory problems
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Waning energy
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Sexual dysfunction

Many of these symptoms can stack up to affect a person’s quality of life, making it extremely difficult to simply get through the day. Contact the office to schedule a bioidentical hormone replacement therapy consultation with the doctor if you are dealing with troublesome symptoms.
