BHRT to Treat Menopause
Many women choose bioidentical hormones to treat frustrating menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, weight gain, night sweats and interrupted sleep. Menopause occurs when a woman does not get her menstrual cycle for 12 consecutive months, typically around the late 40’s to early 50’s. Perimenopause, or pre menopause, symptoms may start to appear even 10 years before this. Perimenopause is when a woman’s menstrual cycle starts to become irregular. In both cases you may start to notice the negative effects of a hormone imbalance, since hormone levels change drastically during this time. It’s important to understand that you do not have to live with the disruptive symptoms of menopause. Bioidentical hormone therapy has changed the lives of thousands of women, and allowed them to regain their quality of life, confidence and health.
Low Testosterone (Low T) in Women
Men aren’t the only ones who suffer from low testosterone. Women may also start to notice a dip in this hormone, even as early as their mid 30’s. As we age, our testosterone levels continue to decline, leading to lower libido, impaired sexual function, muscle loss, weight gain and other bothersome symptoms. Low T is easily reversible in both men and women with bioidentical testosterone replacement therapy.
More often than men, women suffer from thyroid dysfunction, which, if left untreated, can drastically impact your health and quality of life. Many of the body’s functions are dependent on the thyroid working properly and producing the right amount of hormones. If you have thyroid dysfunction your body is either producing too little thyroid hormone (hypothyroidism) or too much (hyperthyroidism). Thyroid dysfunction can also be related to an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which is actually the most common thyroid disorder. A comprehensive blood test like our Optimal Wellness Blood Panel that includes a full thyroid panel is required to get an accurate picture of your thyroid health. Female hormone therapy for thyroid dysfunction should include bioidentical thyroid hormones, supplementation, dietary counseling, and nutrient IV/injection therapy.
