Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Ojai, California Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy specialist, Robin A. Bernhoft, M.D. at the Bernhoft Center for Advanced Medicine specializes in helping men and women to overcome the side effects of age related syndromes, such as andropause and menopause. By supplementing deficient hormones and correcting imbalances, countless patients have been able to gracefully transition through the different physiological phases of aging. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has helped men and women to completely avoid or reduce the uncomfortable physical and mental changes related to perimenopause, menopause, and andropause.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is unlike any other hormone treatment used in allopathic medicine today. It is unique because of the natural ability for these Bioidentical Hormones to be accepted and used by the human body. This is because Bioidentical Hormones are exact molecular copies of the hormones that are produced naturally. Another unique quality about Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy is that each patient has a unique dosage of Bioidentical Hormones, because the recommended amount varies from patient to patient. This ensures that you are receiving all of the hormones that your unique body needs.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to restore your hormone levels to the same levels you had in your 20s and 30s. This means more energy, more confidence, stronger immune system, and more control over your life.
Although there are many reasons why people pursue Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, the most common reason is suffering from age related phases of life that cause hormonal balances to set off. These stages are most commonly known as perimenopause, menopause, and andropause (men).
- Menopause and Perimenopause in Women
Menopause and Perimenopause in Women
Menopause is a natural stage in a woman’s life that is experienced by women as the age. This age ranges from woman to woman, as do the symptoms associated with menopause. By decreasing the amount of hormones produced, the body is instinctively accepting that it is reaching the end of its childbearing years.
Women going through the process of menopause often experience many of the symptoms included below:
- Hot flashes
- Night sweats
- Mood swings
- Loss of libido
- Sexual dysfunction
- Heart palpitations
- Urinary urgency
- Clammy skin
- Weight gain
Most traditional medicine treatments only focus on managing your symptoms, but do not solve the root cause of the problem. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has the ability to not only relieve symptoms and discomforts, but also eliminate them. With this kind of relief, a patient can expect to see a dramatic improvement in the quality of their life.
- Andropause in Men
Men experience similar transitional stages as they age. As men age, the body’s testosterone levels slowly start to decline beginning in a man’s 30’s, the signs and symptoms of this testosterone decline is commonly known as andropause. During a man’s 40’s or 50’s, a dramatic drop in the levels of testosterone can occur, and uncomfortable symptoms may result. For men, some common symptoms would include low energy levels, decreased stamina, poor mental function, lower sexual performance, and decreased sense of self-confidence.
Testosterone contributes to male characteristics, such as physical and behavioral traits. When testosterone levels begin to decline, a slight change in behavior is a common result. Men have reported feeling a loss of quality of life resulting from imbalanced levels of testosterone, and have little to no interest in activities or hobbies that used to interest them.
Andropause is often accompanied with one or more of the following symptoms:
- Weight gain
- Fatigue and energy loss
- Loss of sex drive
- Occasional bouts of impotence
- Mood swings
- Loss in physical strength
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy has been shown to help men rebalance their hormones and regain control of their life. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy restores levels of hormones to what they used to be, bringing youthful vitality and energy.
