Why Your Doctor Doesn’t Prescribe Conventional Hormones Anymore
For years, many women were on conventional hormone therapy replacement. Signiﬁcant health safety concerns arose in 2002 for women using synthetic hormone replacement therapies (HRT). This led to millions to stop taking it—up to 70 percent according to one survey. There were few alternatives for both patients and physicians, until the advent of bioidentical hormones.
What are Bioidentical Hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are structurally identical to the body’s hormones (Hence the name “bio-identical”) and follow the same pathways and act on the same receptors. The side effects are minimal and have not been found to cause the same issues as conventional hormone replacement. Most bioidentical hormones are made of a natural plant extract. Examples include yams and soybeans.
Bioidentical Hormone Benefits for Men
Men can go through “Manopause” or male menopause. Our testosterone levels are highest in our 20s and slowly dissipate as we age. Symptoms include fatigue, poor recovery from workouts, erectile dysfunction, weight gain, and irritability. Hormone imbalances can lead to greater medical issues, an overall slowdown of your optimal issue. At Total Body Therapy of Georgia, we provide both pellet or injection form.
Bioidentical Hormone Benefits for Women
Women can go through variations of hormone imbalance through life from puberty, to childbirth, to menopause. Symptoms can include anxiousness, irritability, fatigue, to poor performance from workouts and recovery. Many symptoms are due to an imbalance of women’s hormones. These hormones are estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Of course there is also the common hot flashes that is often seen near menopause (also known as perimenopause). Most conventional medical providers unfortunately are not trained adequately in hormones. They often rely on pills such as antidepressants to mask symptoms, rather than check hormone levels. At Total Body Therapy of Georgia, we check your hormones to see if bioidentical hormones are right for you.
Why Bio-identical Pellets?
In our experience, the typical bio-identical delivery methods—i.e. creams, pills, injections and even micronized capsules—cannot provide a steady stream of hormone in your bloodstream twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. That means you are still subject to a roller coaster ride of hormone levels. Patches must be changed often to provide adequate hormone levels.
When we help balance female hormones, it may provide an individual with a greatly improved quality of life. In addition to feeling great, studies have shown that balancing hormones in women may be able to help reduce one’s chance of contracting certain diseases, as well as decreasing the severity of particular conditions.
