The body’s hormones affect how you feel because they are the internal communication network between cells in the body. They allow everything from mood to immune function to libido to function properly. However, when the hormones get out of balance, the basic bodily functions can shift and stop functioning properly. When the hormones are out of balance, your health and well-being become affected. People often look to hormone replacement therapies to help relieve their bodies of the symptoms of a hormone imbalance. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy uses natural solutions for hormone problems.
What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy involves the use of hormones that are created to chemically match the hormones that each human body produces. They are created from plant-based sources to help replicate hormones like progesterone, testosterone, and estrogen.
These custom-made hormones are created in a process called compounding. The compounding creation process of bio-identical hormones is often indicated to be the safest method of creating hormones and is often considered more effective than synthetic hormones.
Bio-identical hormones are chemically identical to the ones in our bodies, making them different from the traditional hormone replacement therapies available. Traditional hormone replacement therapy uses hormones made from pregnant horse urine and other synthetic hormones. Many people believe that the bio-identical hormones are safer because they are identical in genetic makeup to the hormones produced in the body naturally.
What are the Benefits of Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
For those who are suffering from menopause or perimenopause, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can have huge benefits and effects on the symptoms. Problems like mood changes, memory loss, weight gain, sleep issues, night sweats, or hot flashes are all reduced when using bio-identical hormones.
Many who have taken bio-identical hormone replacement therapy also comment on having an improved quality of life and general well-being. It has been shown to relieve incontinence, low libido, and even insomnia.
