Hormonal imbalances can be the result of illness, stress, pregnancy, age, or another issue. No matter the cause, restoring how you feel relies on rebalancing your hormones. Many physicians recommend synthetic hormones. Although they are deemed safe and effective, you have another option with bioidentical hormones. You can enjoy a natural solution to feel your best.

What is Bioidentical?

“Bioidentical” refers to hormones that closely align with those that are produced naturally in your body. They are derived from plant or animal sources instead of created synthetically in a lab, like those used in conventional prescribed medications.

Now, many men and women prefer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) as an alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals because they are naturally absorbed by the body since they closely align with what is produced within us daily. This allows you to enjoy a solution to help you feel, look, and perform your best through all stages of your life.

How Can Bioidentical Hormones Help Me?

Your hormones are vital to your body’s functions. They work as a form of internal communication between your cells to coordinate everything from your mood and libido to your appetite and immune system. When a single hormone is unbalanced, it can significantly impact your health and well-being. Too much or too little of a specific hormone interrupts the proper communication within your body, which can result in several complications, such as:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Memory loss
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes
  • Wrinkling and age lines.
  • Loss of bone density
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Mood swings and irritability.

Bioidentical hormones naturally rebalance your body’s functions. After identifying which one is not at its ideal level, a plant or animal-based chemical is chosen to restore its optimal level. Your physician creates a treatment plan that only includes the hormones you need, so you can rest assured it truly caters to your specific needs.

Besides relieving your symptoms of a hormone imbalance, treating the issues using a bioidentical method has shown to offer other benefits as well, such as reducing your risk of diabetes, tooth loss, and cataracts. There is also evidence it can improve your skin by reducing wrinkles and enhancing its elasticity.
