Female Hormone Therapy

As women age, hormones in the body often decrease or become imbalanced. This is a natural part of growing older, but it can also happen post-pregnancy, after taking certain medications or if you develop an autoimmune disease. Whatever the reason, your body may no longer produce the right amount of important hormones, potentially leading to bothersome symptoms that you may not have known were tied to a hormone imbalance.

Signs of a Hormone Imbalance:

  • Low libido
  • Hot flashes
  • Fatigue or low energy
  • Mood swings
  • Anxiety

 

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Poor or interrupted sleep
  • Brain fog or decreased mental focus
  • Increased body fat or decreased muscle
  • Depression

Female hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a natural treatment designed to supplement the hormones your body is lacking, restore hormonal balance, and reduce or alleviate any negative symptoms. In addition, hormone therapy can have a very positive effect on the way you look and feel by improving how your entire body functions. Most patients report a number of benefits including increased energy and improved overall wellbeing.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Begin Anew offers bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT), using hormones that are identical in molecular structure to the ones produced in your body. Bioidentical hormones are a more natural and safer alternative than hormones that are synthesized in a laboratory. Bioidentical hormones are derived from natural plant compounds and function in the exact same way as your natural hormones. Your body can’t tell the difference. With bioidentical hormone therapy, a simple blood test can be used to safely and accurately measure your total reproductive hormone levels, including the bioidentical hormones you’ve taken and the hormones your body makes. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can result in a higher sex drive, better energy and athletic performance, restored muscle mass, improved mood, and other benefits for both women and men.

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.

Thyroid Dysfunction

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.
