Hot flashes, fatigue, a lack of interest in the things you used to do — these symptoms are common for those experiencing a hormone imbalance. Fortunately, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy from Medical Transformation Center in Louisville, Kentucky could work for you.
Hormones help to regulate our bodies and keep us healthy, full of energy, and on-balance. But when the body starts to produce less of the hormones that we need, sometimes as a result of menopause and other life changes, then our work and home lives start to suffer. Improving your diet and getting more exercise can help the body regulate hormones, but there are other options worth considering too.
You may already know about hormone replacement therapy. You might have even heard about more recent breakthroughs in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. So what’s the difference between the two, and why should you give bioidentical hormone replacement therapy a chance?
The same hormones which regulate your body’s natural systems can also be found in nature. Scientists have discovered organic molecules which have the same properties as human hormones. These compounds are the same on the molecular level, and so the body puts them to use just as if it had generated them.
This means that not only estrogen but also other hormones like progesterone can be reproduced to rejuvenate your body’s natural functions. The depletion of these hormones coincides with the aging process. This helps bioidentical hormone replacement therapy to counteract this process.
It isn’t always obvious whether you’re experiencing the effects of a reduction in hormone production, especially if you’re below the age when most people experience it. Fatigue and weight gain can sneak up on you even in your thirties, soon after hormone production is at its highest.
