Everyone needs hormones. They regulate your metabolism, influence your immune system, and can affect your behavior. These chemical messengers are an essential part of our everyday living. Unfortunately, over time our hormones decline due to age, disease or trauma, altering our bodies physically and mentally. These changes cause weight gain, limited energy, depression, a low sex drive, and poor concentration.
Historically, synthetic hormones that are produced in a lab, like Premarin and Provera, have been used to combat the effect of natural hormone loss. Unfortunately, because these products are not identical to human hormones they have been known to lead to adverse side effects, including bloating, bleeding, mood swings, strokes, and some cancers.
However, bioidentical hormones have been shown to provide the same benefits as naturally occurring hormones without the side effects of synthetics. These hormones are derived from natural ingredients such as soy, yams, and other plants and are biologically identical to our own human hormones. The body doesn’t reject these hormones because it is as if it created them. The result is feeling healthier, sexier, and younger. Biomedical hormones also are used for weight loss, increasing energy levels, and jump starting libido. Both men and women have found that they receive great results with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
To optimize your results with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, it is recommended that you meet with a medical professional, such as those with Prime Health in Atlanta & Roswell Georgia, to test your hormone levels and create a personalized treatment plan.
