Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
As a woman ages and reaches perimenopause, then transitions into menopause, female hormone production slows down dramatically. This can result in frustrating hot flashes, sleeplessness, mood swings, weight gain, decreased skin tone and tightness, vaginal changes (such and laxity and painful sex), and even urinary incontinence.
Women and their doctors often begin rushing into hormone therapy to treat the symptoms of menopause. But many health experts and menopausal women are concerned with the adverse effects of this hormone supplementation and are turning to alternatives that are believed to be much safer. This interest in a more natural approach to hormone therapy has lead to the development of “bioidentical hormones”.
Similarly men who are experiencing the hormone declines of getting older may experience “Low T” and other hormone issues with symptoms that include: decreased stamina and energy, low sex drive, depression, hot flashes, loss of muscle mass and mood swings.
