Hormonal deficiencies are very common mainly from the age of 40 onwards. First signs noticed by those affected are aging signs such as sagging skin, wrinkles, as well as reduced vitality and increased fatigue. Bioidentical hormones can be used to balance out these deficiencies and imbalances. This Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, BHRT for short, is not yet known well in many countries, so we help you to find specialized doctors who treat you with bioidentical hormones.
Treatable Conditions and Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance
Restoring balanced hormone levels leads to new joy of life as well as more energy and vitality. When suffering from hormone-related overweight, a therapy with bioidentical hormones can make losing weight easier. Bioidentical hormones have also proven to be suitable for use in regenerative medicine, e.g., for skin rejuvenation.
Signs of Hormonal Imbalances
Hormones are essential messenger substances, which the human body produces as required. They not only regulate important metabolic functions, but also have a great influence on physical and mental well-being.
With increasing age or through stress at work or with the family, hormonal glands can lose efficiency and hormonal imbalances can emerge. The consequences can vary depending on the actual hormonal imbalances: Fatigue, listlessness, depressive moods, and premature aging are just some of them.
In order to restore healthy and balanced hormone levels the missing hormones (e.g., T3, T4, testosterone, estrogen, growth hormone, DHEA, melatonin, or cortisol) can be substituted through therapy. There are two types of hormone replacement therapies which differ in significant aspects.
Types of Hormone Replacement Therapy
In the course of the classic Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) usually a single missing hormone is substituted (monotherapy) with a high dose of a synthetically produced hormone-like substance. Because hormones in the human body are interconnected cybernetically and their release is dependent on each other, the intake of a single hormone is often insufficient to restore the hormonal balance. Exceptions are malfunctions of specific hormonal glands due to illness (e.g., insulin-producing islet cells in case of Diabetes type I).
As part of a Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) the body is supplied with multiple missing hormones in the form of bioidentical hormones. Thereby usually the hormonal balance can be restored successfully. Bioidentical hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones produced by the body and are thus well tolerated when dosed correctly by a specialized physician.
