You never thought that you would be at the mercy of raging hormones or hormone levels that are dropping at a dramatic rate. You’ve breezed through life without any health problems. You have always felt like you were on the top of your game until your hormones had other plans. You heard about hormone deficiencies. You knew it was a fact of life that affects many when they reach middle age and beyond. You never thought your hormones would stop you in your tracks because you take such good care of yourself. Think again. Your hormone levels can drop and if they do, it can make you feel like you are stuck on a roller coaster. It’s time to get off the thrill ride and think about treating hormonal imbalances with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT.
What is BHRT All About?
BHRT stands for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. When you have this treatment, your hormone levels will be supplemented by bioidentical hormones that have the same chemical makeup as the hormones that you are lacking. When you get older, your hormone levels will naturally decrease. It’s a part of the cycle of life as your reproductive system gets ready to shut down.
For some people, this phase of life is nothing noticeable. For others, it can wreak havoc. It can make you feel like you are a clock that doesn’t have batteries anymore as you run down. You may not be able to get enough stamina to make it through your workout or your workday. Your weight can start to go up at a dramatic rate. Your sleep can be affected, and you can feel like you are always tired. Many people notice a lack of interest in sexual intimacy as well. All in all, a hormone deficiency can make your life miserable. BHRT can turn the situation around.
What are Your Options with BHRT?
With BHRT, you have choices. We offer this effective therapy with pellets that are inserted underneath the skin. If you go with this option, you won’t need pellets again for at least three months. You don’t have to worry about forgetting a dosage. Your hormones will be released over time. Once you begin hormone replacement treatments, you will notice that your symptoms should gradually go away. In time, you will feel like you did when you were on top of your game again. You can get back to doing the things that you love.
Feel more youthful again. You may be getting older, but you don’t have to accept troubling symptoms. At Med Spa 22, we can help you find out if BHRT is right for you. Our doctor will examine you and check your hormone levels with a blood test. If your hormones are causing your problems, then we can find the right treatment for you.
