bioidentical hormoneHot flashes, headaches, weight gain, mood swings, reduced libido, dryness, anxiety, food cravings, hair loss . . .

Doesn’t sound like a pleasant existence. No wonder women in particular are trying to find answers! That’s where hormone therapy, or HRT, has become a boon – no one wants the symptoms of menopause which can last for many years. The problem, though, is with synthetic hormones, a “one size fits all” approach. While they may help with the symptoms of menopause, they do not restore a hormonal balance in the body because the body cannot recognize and synthesize this man-made hormone. They have also been shown to generate symptoms as well as long-term issues sometimes involving cancer.

Enter “bio-identical hormone therapy.” These hormones help alleviate the symptoms of menopause while restoring hormonal balance. Specifically, estrogen:

  • promotes and grows specific cells in the bodyhormone replacement therapyis responsible for the development of most secondary sexual characteristics of the female body
  • slows bone loss

Doses of bio-identical hormone therapy come in different forms and can be compounded to meet your specific dosage needs. Only a medical doctor who specializes in bio-identical hormones should advise on your treatment.

Also, never take estrogen without progesterone (our blog for next week).

So, don’t give up on getting help for your symptoms during menopause or after. Seek natural bio-identical hormone therapy to get rid of the symptoms and start living again!
