Bioidentical Hormone Treatment for Menopause Symptoms
Most women face the changes that menopause brings with some trepidation. Once a woman has reached this stage, her body no longer produces the same level of estrogen or progesterone hormones. Because of these decreased hormones, menopause is often accompanied by a host of physical, emotional, and sexual health problems including:
- Insomnia and Depression
- Emotional Changes (anxiety and irritability)
- Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
- Dry Skin
- Vaginal Dryness
- Decreased Libido
- Reduced Mental Focus
- Joint Pain
Following menopause, this hormonal imbalance causes many women to also face a higher risk of coronary disease and higher cholesterol levels, as well as loss of bone mass that can lead to osteoporosis.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)?
KC Medical & Wellness Center uses customized hormone treatments for women who have entered menopause or are post-menopausal. This therapy is different from all others because it’s made from natural components, using the same hormones that were in your body but have decreased through aging and the onset of menopause. Since this treatment is comprised of the identical chemical and molecular structure that your body naturally produced, it has numerous benefits over synthetic hormones.
How Does BHRT Help the Symptoms of Menopause?
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, or BHRT, uses hormones that are identical to the ones you have lost with the onset of menopause. Although your body is no longer producing these hormones, BHRT will re-introduce the hormones you’ve lost, safely and effectively. Unlike women who take synthetic hormones, patients using this treatment experience few side effects. Your symptoms will begin to disappear soon after you begin your customized treatment. Once your original hormone levels have been restored, you’ll begin to look and feel like you did years—even decades—earlier. The risks associated with menopause and post-menopause will being to reverse themselves.
