WHAT IS BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY
As we age, sometimes as young as 30, our bodies tend to experience hormonal imbalances. While this can be a common phenomenon it can also be uncomfortable and will lead to a decline in health and wellness.
Some issues that can arise from hormonal imbalances include hair loss, fatigue, thyroid disease, weight gain, depression and sexual dysfunction just to name a few. If you are experiencing any of these issues (or more) you might be a candidate for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). The natural hormones in this type of therapy can be found in a myriad of forms such as creams, injections, or pills. Since the hormones are structurally identical to the ones naturally created by our bodies, patient don't suffer the side effects such as those often experienced by patients when treated with synthetic hormone substitutes.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy is completely customized per patient. At Renew Laser & Skin we know that hormones play a significant role in how our bodies behave and ultimately in how we feel. Our goal is to help our patients reclaim the joy in their lives regardless of their age.
BIO-IDENTICAL VS SYNTHETIC
In the past many patients chose to supplement their hormonal imbalances with synthetic hormones. Most commonly these synthetic hormones are made from the urine of a female horse. The molecules found in the urine are then manipulated so that they will function in the human body. The problems with synthetic hormones are that your body recognizes them as a foreign agent that can often translate into awful side effects.
Bio-Identical Hormones on the other hand are 100% natural and considered the safest form of hormone replacement therapy. Structurally they are the exact same shape and form as the hormones that our body produces. Because these hormones are identical, patients will not feel any side effects from them. In case studies, taking bio-identical hormones has even shown to have protective qualities against breast and ovarian cancer, osteoporosis, high cholesterol and heart disease.
Synthetic medications come in limited and pre-set doses. Bio-Identical Hormones are compounded to be customized to the individual patient.
