Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bio-identical hormone therapy (bHRT) is the medical use of hormones that have the same bio-chemical structure as those produced by the body, designed to restore normal hormonal balance.
Common symptoms of hormone imbalance.
Women who are experiencing hormonal imbalances can experience a variety of menopausal and peri-menpausal symptoms, including poor concentration, fatigue, hot flashes, night sweats, depression, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, headaches/migraines, PMS, weight gain, low libido, and vaginal dryness.
Men suffering from hormonal imbalances typical experience abdominal weight gain, decline in muscle mass, lowered libido, decreased erectile function, decreased energy, difficulty focusing, and feeling “grumpy.”
Expert treatment and monitoring.
When properly prescribed and managed, bHRT is the safest and most effective option for treating the underlying cause of hormone-related symptoms. At Marin Natural Medicine Clinic, estrogen and testosterone hormone replacements are always administered transdermally (through the skin) and hormone levels are always tested by 24-hour urine analysis.
Effective disease prevention.
In addition to correcting the conditions associated with hormonal imbalances, evidence has shown that hormone replacement therapy provides a preventative benefit against cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline/dementia and osteoporosis.
