5 Reasons Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy May Be Right for You

Whether you’re a man or a woman, your hormones naturally decline with age. Your body no longer needs high levels of estrogen (for women) or testosterone (for men) as you get older. However, this decrease in hormones as part of the natural aging process sometimes isn’t gradual, especially for women going through menopause. 

 

When hormone levels drop abruptly, you often feel the unpleasant effects of this rapid decrease in the form of a variety of physical and emotional changes. Here at A Body Renaissance in Santaquin, Utah, Jennifer Trinidad, DNP, offers bioidentical hormone therapy for men and women experiencing a decline in hormone levels as a result of the aging process

Bioidentical hormones are man-made hormones derived from plants that are chemically identical to the hormones your body produces naturally. These can help you feel like yourself again, leading to more energy, a more vibrant sex life, and decreased physical and emotional symptoms that typically come with lower-than-normal hormone levels. 

If you’re wondering how to handle the changes your body is going through as you get older, here are five reasons bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) may be right for you. 

1. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps reduce unpleasant symptoms

Low hormones affect men and women differently. For example, as a woman goes through menopause and estrogen levels drop, it’s common to experience any of the following:

Your bone density may also decrease, making it easier to break a bone than it was when you were younger. 

As a man gets older, testosterone production slows down and leads to problems, including:

For many women and men, these symptoms respond well to a customized treatment of bioidentical hormones.

2. Bioidentical hormones are convenient

Jennifer first tests you for hormone imbalance so she can customize a convenient BHRT plan to meet your individual needs. Bioidentical hormones are easy to take — they come in the form of pills, creams, patches, injections, or tiny pellets that Jennifer implants just under the surface of your skin. She talks to you about your lifestyle and anti-aging goals so you can decide which treatment method is best for you. 

3. Bioidentical hormones are safe

Bioidentical hormones that have been approved by the FDA are tested for safety under strict guidelines. Additionally, when you embark on a BHRT plan with A Body Renaissance, Jennifer closely monitors your progress, making any necessary adjustments so you get the maximum benefit from your hormone therapy. 

4. Bioidentical hormones are most like natural hormones

One of the biggest benefits of choosing BHRT over treatments with synthetic, animal-based hormones is that bioidentical hormones have the same molecular structure as the hormones your body makes. This means bioidentical hormones are less foreign to your body and therefore may work better than synthetic hormones. When the hormones work well, you get consistent relief from symptoms.

5. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy helps you feel like yourself again

The unpleasant symptoms of low hormone levels can negatively impact your health as well as your personal relationships — especially intimate ones. BHRT can help you feel like yourself again, with more energy and a restored libido.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can even help improve your outlook on life as you get older and make sex more enjoyable. When you feel better physically, you undoubtedly feel better emotionally, too. BHRT can help you get there.
