Thanks to the advances in medicine, we are living longer. We are living longer, but is our quality of life maintained? Of course we know the importance of proper nutrition and regular exercise to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but why do some of us continue to feel unhealthy and worn out. Many women suffer from memory loss, insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, hot flashes, muscle loss, bone density loss, mood swings, and decreased libido. These symptoms may be signs of declining hormone levels.
Bio-Identical hormone replacement
A major factor to how we feel and our general health involves our body’s natural hormone levels. Hormones act as chemical messengers, controlling different functions within our bodies. We need our hormones for our bodies to function properly. Women suffering from declining hormone levels or menopause also complain of hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, and forgetfulness. Women do not have to live with these changes! When we have optimal levels of these hormones, we not only feel better, but we are preventing future age-related diseases. Long term hormone replacement therapy through bioidentical hormones can decrease risk for heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, and osteoporosis. Other benefits include improvements in sexual health. Bioidentical hormone replacement can restore the vaginal mucosa and correct the atrophy and dryness that is associated with declining hormone levels. Sufficient hormone levels will also restore a healthy sexual drive along and correct vaginal dryness that can result in pain with sex.
So, for women and men who desire to be and feel healthy you can not ignore the importance of hormones. Just because we age does not mean we have to feel the effects of aging. Bio-identical hormone replacement is performed with a small pellet placed beneath the skin on the buttocks every three to four months. Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy can offer life changing health benefits and have you feeling the way you did 10, 20, or even 30 years ago.
