How Does Hormone Therapy Work?

Hormonal imbalance, a common occurrence after the age of 25, can significantly impact your vitality, health, and mental sharpness. The loss of critical hormones leads to various symptoms like fatigue, anxiety, weight gain, and more. Hormone therapy, particularly bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), offers an effective solution to these issues. But how does hormone therapy work? Let’s delve into the details.

Understanding Hormonal Imbalance

Hormones are essential for various functions in our bodies. With age, both men and women experience a decrease in hormone production – a rate of approximately 2-3% each year. By the age of 50, we have only half the hormone production we had in our youth. This reduction often leads to symptoms like hot flashes, sleep disorders, memory loss, and decreased sex drive.

What Makes Bioidentical Hormones Unique?

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy stands out due to its use of hormones that are molecularly identical to those produced naturally in the human body. These bioidentical hormones are made to replicate the exact chemical structure of your body’s hormones, ensuring they perform the same functions without causing additional side effects.

The Process of Bioidentical Hormone Therapy

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy begins with an in-depth consultation. During this initial meeting, we evaluate the patient’s hormonal needs based on their symptoms, health profile, and personal preferences. This helps in determining the optimal dosage form that best suits the individual. The selected hormones can be administered in various forms, such as creams, gels, pills, injections, or implanted pellets. 

Once therapy starts, it typically takes between one to two months for the body to respond and the patient to notice marked improvements in their symptoms. It’s important to remember that everybody is unique, and the timeframe can vary. Regular follow-ups are scheduled to monitor progress, adjust dosages if needed, and ensure the therapy is yielding desired results. We work with your primary physician to ensure your needs are met. 

The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

BHRT has been recognized for its numerous benefits. Some patients report better mood, improved sleep and reduced anxiety. As the benefits of this wellness regimen become more well-known, individuals facing hormone imbalances should talk to a knowledgeable healthcare professional about whether it may be right for them.

Patients generally report improvement in their symptoms as they continue hormone therapy, leading to:

  • More energy
  • Less anxiety
  • Fewer hot flashes
  • Improved sex drive
