Have you been experiencing weight gain, decreased energy or impaired cognitive function? If so, you are not alone. As people age, many begin to experience hormonal imbalances causing various symptoms. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) returns your body to its optimal level of hormones, leaving you looking and feeling your best. We at HyperFit MD are dedicated to providing you with the best treatments available to ensure you enjoy life to its fullest!
What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?
Unlike commonly prescribed synthetic hormones, BHRT utilizes hormones with identical structures to hormones your body naturally produces. Even though bioidentical hormones are created in a laboratory, they mimic your natural hormones, resulting in the body not being able to tell the difference between the hormones it produces and the bioidentical ones.
Most synthetic hormones do not offer a perfect match to your naturally occurring hormones, often resulting in undesirable side effects. BHRT works to restore your hormones to optimal levels while decreasing any risks involved with hormone therapy. Treatments are customized and tailored to your unique needs. BHRT will not increase the risk of breast cancer, as is the case with synthetic hormones.
Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
BHRT has been shown to improve the quality of life of people as they age and hormones levels drop, particularly in women who are in pre-menopause or menopause. It is used to optimize hormonal levels and improve symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, memory loss, and weight gain. It also increases the levels of energy and decreases insomnia and irritability.
Additionally, BHRT may also reduce your risk of heart disease, elevated cholesterol, osteoporosis, diabetes, cataracts, and tooth loss. It has also been shown to improve skin hydration, thickness, and elasticity, and can even reduce wrinkles!
BHRT not only benefits women, but men also enjoy an enhanced quality of life. As they age, males begin to experience lower levels of testosterone, resulting in reduced energy and libido, along with attitude and mood changes. BHRT helps optimize testosterone levels, protecting men against developing many diseases, and leaves them looking and feeling youthful.
Optimizing hormones levels in both men and women can protect the brain against protein deposits that may lead to Alzheimer’s disease. Patients using BHRT report noticing an almost immediate improvement in anxiety and energy levels, and in their physical and mental health.
