Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Englewood

A Natural Approach to Balance

As we get older, our hormone levels naturally start declining after age 30. Many often wonder whether or not hormone therapy is the right option for them. Countless studies have shown that traditional (synthetic) hormone therapy can increase the likelihood of various types of cancers and heart disease. However, many physicians are now advocating a natural approach to hormone balance with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). With natural bioidentical hormones, women and men can find relief from symptoms of hormonal imbalance without the risks that accompany synthetic hormones.

Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy in Denver or Englewood

The benefits of bioidentical hormones typically far outweigh the risks. Bioidentical hormones are most commonly prescribed to treat symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women and men, such as decreased levels of energy, loss of libido, night sweats, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, mood swings, irritability, and hot flashes or night sweats. Many doctors find that women and men who opt for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) instead of undergoing traditional (synthetic) hormone replacement therapy experience less adverse reactions. The side effects of BHRT are usually mild or nonexistent.

Some of the benefits of using bioidentical hormones include:

  • Improved energy levels
  • Improved libido and reduced vaginal dryness
  • Better maintenance of muscle mass and strength
  • Reduction of hot flashes and night sweats
  • Reduced risk of endometrial and breast cancer
  • Improved cholesterol levels
  • Reduced risk of depression
  • Improved sleep
  • Better mood, concentration and memory
  • Restoration of bone density to reduce osteoporosis
  • Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease

Many patients opt for BHRT because each bioidentical hormone regimen is based on each patient’s individual diagnostic results and clinical symptoms, making them not only safer, but also more effective than traditional synthetic hormones.

What are Bioidentical Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones are derived from naturally occurring sources, such as yams and soy, and are designed to replicate the EXACT same chemical structure as the hormones that are produced naturally by our bodies. Pharmaceutical companies can’t patent a natural substance, and thus, synthetic hormones are always biochemically different from naturally occurring hormones.

Are Bioidentical Hormones Safer and More Effective than Synthetic Hormones?

Bioidentical hormones have gained much greater appeal to physicians and patients when dealing with menopause or andropause because they are derived naturally and our bodies can metabolize them properly. Another advantage of using bioidentical hormones is that they are designed to match your individual hormonal needs — unlike synthetic hormones, which use a one-size-fits-all approach to symptom relief.
