Bioidentical Hormone Replacement

What is bioidentical hormone replacement?

Bioidentical hormone replacement is a therapy available to aging men and women who are experiencing symptoms associated with hormone loss. As you age, your body naturally stops producing hormones like estrogen and progesterone if you’re a woman and testosterone if you’re a man. These hormones, like others, aid in your body’s communication with itself and control many of your bodily functions. Losing them can significantly affect your wellbeing. 

If the team at Advanced Health Solutions LLC decides that bioidentical hormone replacement is right for you, they can prescribe your hormones in one of several forms. Bioidentical hormone replacement is available as:

  • Pills 
  • Topical creams and gels
  • Skin patches
  • Injections
  • Implanted pellets

The team helps you choose the right form and monitors you as you undergo the treatment. They use the lowest possible dose to treat your symptoms without causing unwanted side effects.

What’s the difference between bioidentical hormones and synthetic hormones?

At Advanced Health Solutions LLC, the team provides bioidentical hormones for hormone therapy instead of synthetic hormones for a reason. While bioidentical hormones are still human-made from plant estrogens, they’re much more similar to the natural hormones in your body than synthetic hormones used in other types of hormone therapy. In fact, they’re nearly identical. That means that there is a reduced risk of unwanted side effects from the treatment.

What are the benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement?

Bioidentical hormone replacement benefits your health and wellbeing in several ways. The treatment can revitalize you and make you feel revived and ready to take on the day. A few symptoms treatable with bioidentical hormone replacement include:

  • Weight gain
  • Memory loss
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Low libido
  • Pain during sex
  • Bone weakness and osteoporosis
  • Cancer treatment symptoms
  • Fibromyalgia symptoms

Many satisfied patients note that bioidentical hormone replacement helped them with weight loss or resulted in a drastic improvement in the quality of their skin. Alongside lifestyle modifications and improvements, the team can help you use bioidentical hormone replacement to your advantage.
