Did you know that most of your basic body functions are controlled by your body's hormones? They serve as a communication system between cells all throughout your body. This means that any little change in your hormone count can have a huge impact on your mood, appetite, health and overall well-being. It’s fair to note that this is something that happens to all of us as we age. More so once menopause comes along for women, and andropause if you’re a man.
During this period, women begin to see a reduction in estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen is known as the primary sex hormone of a woman. Estrogen is what allows women to develop and regulate the reproductive system. Men on the other hand begin to see a reduction in testosterone, which is their primary sex hormone.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) might just be your best bet to treat and compensate for the hormones that you have already lost. Unlike traditional hormone therapy that uses synthetic hormones that aren’t the same as your natural hormones, BHRT uses hormones that come from plants and are identical to your natural hormones. When you decide to go with BHRT you have the option to choose how the hormones enter your body:
- Wearable skin patches
Any of these procedures will work, but I recommend using either the pellet or cream therapy to optimize your sex hormones. Pellets are placed in the upper buttock for better results, and In just less than a week, BHRT will begin to work its magic and return your hormone balance to the body. Creams will also give you great results. Just make sure that you apply the cream on the inner thigh, or the back of your knee for better results.
The ways in which patients react to BHRT may differ, but most experience positive changes.
