Do I need Bioidentical Hormone Replacement therapy?
As we age, our hormone levels decrease naturally starting around the age of 30. Typical signs of aging are often due to hormonal imbalances such as sluggishness, poor memory, brain fog, lack of energy, hair loss, poor sleep quality, and more. This is because hormones are chemical messengers in our body that control everything from hunger to libido. In fact, hormones have hundreds of functions in the body. They can affect mood, concentration, heart, bones, and skin, as well as the health of your internal organs.
In women, the cyclical nature of hormones is obvious, affecting energy, mood, sleep, and weight throughout various times of the month. Hormones are equally important to the health of men. For example, the hormone has a significant influence on male health. Research shows that men who maintain appropriate testosterone values have a better overall sense of well-being, have greater physical ability, and are less likely to experience debilitating age-related illness when compared to those who are deficient. Holtorf Medical Group’s bio-identical hormone replacement therapy aims to combat all these problems and more as it is able to naturally raise your body’s hormone levels.
Bio-identical hormones are structurally identical to hormones that are produced by the human body. Holtorf Medical Group’s bio-identical hormones are derived from plants and are received from a highly trusted compounding pharmacy. Knowledgeable doctors will encourage bio-identical hormone replacement therapy as it can boost energy levels, support weight loss, decrease recovery time, improve mood and mental clarity, and so much more. It is also important to note that hormone therapy can reduce incidences of breast and uterine cancers and lower the risk of heart disease, strokes, and dementia.
