Every woman will go through menopause at some point in her lifetime, but symptoms of menopause and hormone imbalance may be delayed or minimized with the use of hormone therapy. Hormone therapy during menopause can help restore and improve a woman’s metabolism, mood, and sexual function to keep her feeling great each and every day as she continues to age. Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Center offers bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for women in Scottsdale who need help achieving a healthier hormone balance.
What Is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Menopause?
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a safe, effective hormone treatment for women who need help balancing their hormones as they go through menopause. This hormone therapy is customized for each woman to deliver the exact amount of hormones she needs to achieve a healthy hormonal balance. The formulas used in bioidentical hormone therapy are derived from natural plant sources and mimic the actions of natural hormones produced by the body to reduce symptoms of menopause.
Compared to bioidentical hormone therapy, conventional hormone therapies are made up of synthetic hormones and deliver the same amount of estrogen and progesterone to each woman. Many times, this one-size-fits-all approach to hormone treatment does not fully correct all hormone imbalances caused by menopause. As a result, women on conventional hormone therapies may still experience fluctuations in mood, appetite, and sleep cycles that are generally associated with menopause.
How Does Bioidentical Hormone Therapy Reduce Symptoms of Menopause?
During menopause, a woman’s levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease, which upsets the balance of all other hormones in the body including sleep hormones (melatonin), hunger hormones (leptin and ghrelin), stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline), and androgens (testosterone). These fluctuating hormone levels are what drive symptoms of menopause such as disturbances in sleep cycles, changes in appetite, lower metabolism, and reduced sexual function.
Bioidentical hormone therapy uses a personalized approach to treatment with doses that are customized for each patient based on her unique hormonal needs. The individualized formulas used in this hormone therapy help each woman balance her hormones to reduce symptoms of menopause.
What Are Other Benefits of Using Bioidentical Hormone Therapy?
In addition to helping women feel better from day to day as a result of reducing menopausal symptoms, bioidentical hormone therapy reduces the risk for serious medical problems that can stem from hormone imbalances. Low estrogen levels have been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, colon cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease, among many other conditions.
Bioidentical hormone therapy can also help women feel like younger versions of themselves on behalf of increased energy and metabolism, improved mood, and higher sexual libido. This hormone therapy can improve a woman’s well-being and quality of life as she continues to age.
