Almost all individuals over the age of 40, and in many cases over the age of 30, begin to experience hormone imbalance. A hormone imbalance can lead to a variety of health problems including weight gain, mood swings, loss of sleep quality and fatigue. All of these items, and more, can be changed with the help of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Tyler Wellcare, located in Tyler, Texas, is proud to offer this hormone therapy service to our patients.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Facts
A variety of factors can contribute to conditions and diseases that can occur at any stage in life, resulting from an imbalance of natural hormones. These conditions include:
- Adrenal fatigue
- Thyroid disease
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Sexual dysfunction
How can bioidentical hormone replacement therapy help? BHRT is defined as preventive medicine focused on the supplementation of natural hormones. Many people believe that hormone levels in women remain normal until menopause occurs after the age of 50, but in reality these hormones may decrease as early as age 30 and will progressively decrease through the commonly accepted age of menopause. By utilizing BHRT, patients can experience similar hormone levels as when they were in their mid-30s, when the body is functioning at an optimal level.
What are bioidentical hormones? Bioidentical hormones are natural, plant based compounds that have a chemical structure that matches the hormones naturally produced in the human body. BHRT uses small pellets, injections or creams to deliver the right amount of hormones. In the pellet method, small pellets are inserted just below the skin. The pellets are metabolized by the body through cardio output, allowing the body to absorb the natural amount it needs to perform at a healthy, natural level.
